Majestic views! Thunder Gust Mill is a hidden 15.5-acre property in one of the most dramatic settings in Bucks County. Sit back and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Geddes Run creek – you have your choice of any number of fabulous spots, including a multi-level deck at the edge of the water or, at the house, a covered pavilion complete with cove night-lighting and a ceiling fan; a side terrace; the rocking-chair porch or, dare we say, the perfectly placed soaking tub in the upstairs main bedroom suite, where French doors open to a private balcony. For the nature lover, this is a dream! The grounds are a mix of lush, flat lawn bordered in carefully planned, easy-care perennials, terraced garden beds and mature trees with the entire property deer-fenced. The rugged cliffs that rise on the other side of the creek create a natural privacy barrier for the property. Custom built in 2001 to incorporate a prior stone structure on the property, the present house and a custom-designed garage with workshop above are finished in vertical, select, rough-cut cedar, now stained for easy maintenance. Designed for easy indoor-outdoor flow and to make the most of the views, this home incorporates plenty of Andersen windows and French doors. The Roger Wright-designed kitchen with vaulted ceiling and skylights is designed with banks of windows in the workspace and the dining area. Between three walls of cabinetry and a large island, storage is plentiful, and this room is sure to be the heart of the home. French doors open to a deck, while stone steps lead into the living room with stone fireplace and French doors to the deck. Two bedrooms on the first floor share a full bath, cleverly designed to be accessible from outside for those days when one needs a “farmer” shower before coming in the house. The main suite is upstairs and provides an airy retreat with dynamite views, a walk-in closet plus additional closet and a full bath with two pedestal sinks, an all-tile stall shower and toilet room. Step down to a sitting room with a big Palladian window and access to a laundry room. Extras here, besides the quality construction, include a custom 3-car garage with workshop above; custom, all-wood exterior and interior doors, plantation shutters for many windows, central vac, central air and underground electric. Abundant exterior lighting along the cobblestone-lined perennial gardens, creeks and hillside allow for night-time enjoyment of this one-of-a-kind setting. And let’s not forget the natural swimming hole off the creekside deck. If you’ve been looking for a “hideaway” in Bucks County that’s still very convenient to New Hope, Doylestown, New Jersey, the canal path and the river, and if you value the natural beauty of Bucks County, look no further than Thunder Gust Mill.
