Beauty, warmth and exquisite craftsmanship are the hallmarks of this meticulously renovated reclaimed barn designed by Wolstenholme Associates. Secluded on over 11 naturally landscaped acres, the home features sweeping vistas of the lush surrounding countryside. Gleaming wide-plank floors, large fireplaces, beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls and sliding barn doors evoke a sense of rustic and provincial, while poured concrete floors, soaring ceilings, industrial details and state-of-the-art geothermal heating and cooling make the home elegant and contemporary. Enter to a dramatic and breathtaking view. The minimal-framed large panel sliding glass Nana wall system offers full floor-to-ceiling sliding glass panels for a picture frame effect showcasing the gardens, patio and pool. The glass invites the outside in and removes visual barriers to allow for an expanded sense of space while providing a transparent shield that protects from weather. An architectural three story stainless steel staircase is a masterful centerpiece of the home and leads to all three levels, as does a private elevator within the silo. The gourmet kitchen is fit for a chef, featuring custom contemporary cabinetry, stainless steel Wolf appliances, a Venetian plastered backsplash and glass doors to the patio for poolside grilling and dining al fresco. The second floor boasts a cantilevered balcony overlooking the living space. A catwalk with a built-in custom bookcase and a wall of windows leads to the grand Master Suite with a gracious walk-in closet and a spa-like bath complete with Waterworks fixtures and a Conch-style shower with mosaic glass tile. A wall of windows open to the balcony with a built-in firepit overlooking the lush grounds below. Two sunny en-suite bedrooms round out the second floor and a media room with a projection TV, the third. Guest quarters in the adjoining second barn boast an en-suite bedroom with steam shower and a 3 car garage. From every vantage point, whether inside or out, the vistas blend harmoniously with the home's architectural design, creating a living environment that is serene. Just minutes from the art, culture and restaurants of bustling downtown Doylestown and New Hope and an hour from Princeton, Philadelphia and NYC, this home is perfect for the savvy commuter looking for the respite of lush, private living. This Best of Houzz distinctive country retreat is loaded with character and renovated with the highest quality craftsmanship.
