    Set against the backdrop of farmland and open vistas, this c.1775 stone farm house located in rural Milford Township offers the pastoral setting that is quintessential Bucks County. Though close to shopping, dining and travel routes, this hobby farm imparts a feeling of tranquility. Nestled behind towering pines down a long paved driveway sits the 4 bedroom home with c.1979 addition. Feel the warm embrace of this home as you cross the paver patio and enter the sunny 2-story foyer with French door and sidelights, exposed stone wall, turned staircase and powder room. The large family room with oak floor and stone wood-burning fireplace leads to the screened porch, an ideal spot to enjoy views of the spring-fed pond and the serene grounds. Old world charm is found in the living room with deep-set sills, oak floorboards, walk-in fireplace and exposed beams, and in the dining room with chair rail, random-with pine floor and bible cabinet. The kitchen is large and modern and offers honed granite counters, cherry cabinets and large breakfast room with picture window and doors to patio and parking. Upstairs are 4 bedrooms, two in the newer section and two in the original house with rich random-width floor boards, plus a small den or sitting room perfect for study or computer room. The master bedroom is en suite and has a walk-in closet. The hall bath has a charming antique bureau vanity and tiled glass shower. There is ample room in the lower level paneled rec room with brick hearth and electric stove, plus a wood-stove flue. The grounds offer spring-fed pond with post-and-rail fence, garden beds and mature evergreens. The refurbished in-ground pool has cabana and is aluminum-fenced. Parking for 4 cars in the detached garage. The 3-story barn has electric and offers a multitude of possibilities, from animals to hobbies to workshop to storage. Efficient multiple heat and AC zones. Easy 10-minute access to the Turnpike, 90 minutes to NYC, 75 to Philadelphia, 15 to the Lehigh Valley. Come for the weekend, stay for a lifetime!
