JOHNSGATE IS EVERYTHING you're looking for in a Bucks County historic property !! Starting with humble beginnings as a lovely C.1830 Bucks County Barn, the original barn remains and has been magically transformed & expanded over the years into a 3 bedroom 3 full bath (4 fireplaces!)stunning residence along with an impressive 1968 modern addition. Johnsgate is tucked away on a lovely country road among many farms, horses, historic barns & historic homes. Bucks County resident and Broadway Set Designer John Root purchased this property and was inspired to design the multi room addition. Root used his talented hand & great sense of style to create a stunning modern expansion of the original barn. The 32'x17' great room includes a wall of glass doors with transom windows above which are similar to the glass doors & windows in a set Root designed for the Pasadena Playhouse in California. In addition to the expanded stone barn main house, Johnsgate has a separate 2 level cottage/pool house (1 bedroom/1 bath/kitchenette/studio space). The cottage's 20'x10' deck faces the gorgeous concrete pool which is nestled into the landscape. This charming cottage is currently used as an artist's studio but could also be used a guest house, home office...use your imagination! Johnsgate also has an over-sized 3 car garage and an historic goat barn. This fabulous Bucks County property is just minutes away from the Delaware River and restaurants, shops, galleries, theater & entertainment in the historic towns of New Hope (PA) and Lambertville (NJ) which is just across the Delaware River. Johnsgate is simply enchanting...and waiting for you to start your new adventure !
