Willow Pond Estate provides a rare opportunity to purchase a piece of history in the heart of Bucks County. This classic Bucks County stone farmhouse dates back to the 1700’s. Generations of families have provided careful stewardship of this estate. Each owner prudently added character and new amenities while keeping the original beauty intact. Comprised of three separate parcels of land totaling 6 acres, the property is a remarkable blend of woods, wide-open landscape, lush gardens, and the spring fed pond for which it is named. The house and recently renovated barn are set back at the end of a mature tree-lined driveway. From the circle drive, enter the home through an historically replicated farmhouse porch designed by renowned architect Lynn Taylor. Details include hand turned tin roof and Mercer Tile entranceway. The large eat-in kitchen, perfect for entertaining, features William Draper cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, exposed beams, wide plank pine floors, a Mercer Tile fireplace and an artistic blend of soapstone, marble and hand-planed wood counter tops. A charming breakfast nook overlooks a beautifully landscaped patio and in-ground salt water pool. The first floor is filled with character from restored hardwood floors to gorgeous views from every window. The family room has a cozy stone fireplace and lofted ceiling, the foyer has repurposed bricks, the powder room has pointed stone walls, and the living room has exposed beams. The second floor bedrooms each have it’s own unique character. The master suite has access to the kitchen by a charming pie shaped staircase. Other features: vaulted ceilings, gas fireplace, glass French doors opening to a beautiful balcony overlooking the pool, exposed beams, and double walk-in closets.
