  • Description

    Feel transported to Tuscany at this villa overlooking lush farm fields of Stouts Valley and distant mountains. The long meandering drive delivers you to this enchanting and secluded country retreat, a masterwork of texture, warmth and sophistication. Formal gardens with courtyard sets the tone for this incomparable residence, a c.1860 stone farm house architecturally-designed and renovated by artisan John Franklin in 2001. Published in several national magazines including Architectural Digest, the house boasts interior spaces both intimate and grand! Venetian hand-plastered walls and ceilings, antique doors, stained-glass windows, numerous fireplaces and European architectural artifacts are found throughout, embellishing the spacious interiors, merging old world with modern amenities. A showplace for entertaining, the living room flows effortlessly into the dining room which accommodates a large and festive gathering, and balconies open to the spectacular 2-story great room. This unparalleled space reveals architectural details and Palladian windows which breathe light into the room and capture the verdant rural views. A dramatic winding staircase, heated brick and limestone floor, commanding fireplace with carved mantel and Moravian tile, and hand-painted domed ceiling alcove add to the allure. Antique French doors open to bluestone terraces overlooking the pond and long-distant views. Labyrinthian hallways lead to the media room and bar, tasting room with fireplace and hand-painted mural and wine cellar with capacious capacity. The hi-end kitchen and breakfast room offer incredible views of valley and pond, and French doors open to a multi-level deck overlooking glorious gardens, natural-look pool and gazebo. The cozy den with white-washed beams and stone fireplace is ideal for relaxing while the chef creates. The library with built-ins, and the main bedroom with light-filled en suite and walk-in closet are located on the 2nd floor. Two additional bedrooms and large hall bath are found on the 3rd floor. The large antique barn with 2-car parking and the charming spring house complete the compound. The property consists of two separately-deeded parcels of land, offering the possibility to build on the vacant parcel. Whole-house generator adds peace of mind. This stunning union of architecture and setting is 80 minutes from NYC, 90 from Philadelphia and 15 from Historic Bethlehem, a wonderful oasis for weekend getaways or a remarkable full-time residence.
