Description

Sequestered in a dramatic and memorable setting in which to live and entertain, this custom-crafted Bucks County contemporary is as unique as its location. The 12,125 square foot stone and cedar home overlooks a private lake that becomes one with the home through walls of windows, balconies, and generous decking. From every vantage point, whether inside or out, the vistas blend harmoniously with the home’s architectural design, creating a living environment that is unique and soothing. Pondside has been designed to be a part of the landscape, to skillfully create a balance between the beauty of nature and the appointments made by man.
The striking atrium is an invitation to the surprises to come. Interior spaces boast skylights, vaulted ceilings, walls of glass and creative living spaces for every need and expectation. All rooms have been designed to open gracefully to each other and yet be defined by use. The open living, dining, and family rooms accommodate every luxury and comfort. Vaulted ceilings and skylights create a sense of never-ending space, while stone fireplaces lend a feeling of natural warmth.
The remodeled kitchen is designed for the most sophisticated gourmet, with copper front cabinets and stainless backsplash, granite counters, Viking appliances including two dishwashers, two ovens, two fridges, three ranges, and multiple sinks and work islands. A separate wet bar will make entertaining a delight. A breakfast area overlooks the acreage beyond, where only birds and wildlife will be your occasional visitors.
Additional first floor spaces invite your family and friends to visit and enjoy. A recreation room is adjacent to a first floor bedroom suite and two first floor offices. A sunroom and pool table room open to the indoor heated swimming pool, dramatically set under a vault of cedar, and fed by its own rocky waterfall, along with a hot tub and sauna. In summer or winter, you will spend your days under the sky lit interior, regardless of weather conditions, luxuriating in the wealth of this creative design.
Four additional bedrooms include a luxuriously-equipped master suite, with fireplace and a skylight as big as the heavens. Lofted above the first floor living spaces, and accessed by two staircases, these family spaces will delight.
This remarkable property contains 28 acres of lawn and woodland, secluded at the end of a long drive. Rarely does a home of this caliber become available, with absolute privacy and protected vistas, where you can hear grass grow….all in an enviable location in the serene environs of Upper Bucks County.
