Bring your Horses to FERN ROCK FARM, Circa 1840 - a Quintessential Stone Home in Bucks. This beautifully restored country farmhouse on over 18 acres, with an impressively scaled stone bank barn, truly embraces its privately idyllic setting. Privately surrounded by its own mature forest, the casually elegant home is nestled into a corner of an approximately 6 acre meadow, enjoying serene pastoral views. The owners have painstakingly & respectfully enhanced, expanded upon & updated the property over the past 18 years. One would be hard pressed to effectively describe the warmth, character & comfortable grace that is felt throughout the residence - from the multiple rocking chair porches and exposed interior stone walls to the radiant heated Chestnut & Quarter Sawn Oak flooring and cathedral ceilinged custom kitchen, nothing has been left to chance. The Amish built, gourmet kitchen is certainly a key element of the home's appeal - the owners specifically wanted a "beautiful kitchen you could dance in" and their craftsmen truly accomplished that sense of relaxed refinement. Replete with a Soapstone farmhouse sink & countertops, Wolf Range, reclaimed antique barn wood & beams for the cathedral ceiling and generous window installations, this true Country Kitchen is an ideal heart of the home. Additional to the 3 upstairs bedrooms, there is a first floor bedroom adjacent to a beautifully re-done full bath, cedar closet & office/mudroom/laundry center. If floor plan flexibility is important to you - the practical usability of this side of the home is remarkable - ie: if a first floor Master Suite is desired, here the foundation for that relatively minor adjustment is readily attainable. The character & authentic practicality of the property continues on in the significantly sized stone bank barn. With several cavernous main sections, as well as multiple finished upstairs rooms, complete w/electric & convenience water service - flexibility of use is surely realized. The upstairs rooms include a huge media/family room, an exercise suite, the owner's photography studio & yoga/meditation space. Beyond the barn's finished ares are cavernous, separated volumes of space that beg the imagination to run wild. All of the original interior materials, from the barn board siding to the solid stone walls to the full-height original pegged ladders, are in remarkable condition. Once you see Fern Rock Farm you'll likely agree, this property may actually define the word "Home".
