Here at Kurfiss Sotheby’s International Realty, it’s a privilege to assist owners of properties representing a wide range of styles and price points. Sometimes, along with expected features and finishes, houses have something extra, a one-of-a-kind feature that can elicit reactions ranging from “Wow!” to “Are you kidding me?” Here’s a taste of some currently on the market.

Field of Dreams

Grenoble Road aerial
The main house at Dreamfield, an 11-acre property that also includes a baseball infield.

Who’s on first? The kids who get to live at Dreamfield in Northampton Township, that’s who. Along with a 9100-square-foot residence and one-bedroom/one-bath guest house, this 11-acre property includes a baseball infield for your budding Little League player to hone his or her skills. Throw in the pool, tennis court and finished lower level and you have resort-style living without leaving home. Contact Vicki Azar Roberts, vicki@kurfiss.com.

Pizza, Pizza

This stone house and separate studio/design building (under contract as of July 11, 2018) are nearly in the center of Solebury Township yet so secluded on 11 acres that most people will never know this property exists. Forgoing a fancy stainless steel grill, the current owners went old-school with their outdoor kitchen and built a custom, wood-fired, beehive oven with an extra feature, a “parrilla” or Argentine grill that can be raised and lowered via a crank wheel, adjacent to the oven.

What’s the Password?

Mill Road drawbridge
In the background , the drawbridge allows passage over the millrace water feature.

The three-story mill on Watson’s Creek in Buckingham Township has been a residence for many decades, but luckily, time has not erased the building’s character. Expertly pointed, exposed stone walls, massive beams and some of the gears for the mill are still in place. Also existing: the millrace that powered the waterwheel on the lower level of the house. Now an indoor water feature, it has resident goldfish and comes complete with a working drawbridge, password not included.
