Historic charm meets modern design at Surrey Hill, a luxury estate property consisting of a reproduction stone and frame Bucks County farmhouse which has been expanded and re-engineered by the current owners with the expertise of renowned Bucks County builder J.R. Maxwell. You feel as if you are entering your own country retreat as you go down the long tree lined drive and over the babbling stream, yet you are only a mile or so from Historic Newtown Borough. Welcome guests as they approach the circular drive from a rocker on your quintessential wrap-around porch, and invite them into the handsome foyer positioned in the heart of the home. An inviting living room centers around a fireplace with gas insert and custom millwork, and is anchored by double French doors overlooking the porch and expansive windows that showcase the gorgeous views from every vantage point. The gourmet kitchen is well appointed with high-end appliances including a Wolf six burner gas range with pot filler, double ovens, paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator, deep farm sink, large center island, and superb custom cabinetry topped with soapstone counters and accented by hand cut glass tile backsplash. Family and friends will relax by the crackling fire in the adjoining family room in the cooler seasons and take in the view of the lush gardens and patios in the warmer months. Entertaining is a true pleasure any time of year with an elegant dining room, casual kitchen seating area and amazing pool-side patios. Work and study from home in one of three rooms; two main level rooms include a cozy study featuring a wood burning fireplace and wall of classic built-ins and a convenient home command center with additional cabinet storage off of the mudroom. Up a set of rear stairs from a separate main floor wing, which boasts two lovely bed rooms and opulent bath ideal for guests, in-laws or your au pair, find an upper-level executive office with rolling views of the property. The dramatic turned main staircase leads to the owner’s quarters showcasing a beautiful view of the grounds, luxurious spa-like bath with cast iron soaking tub, oversized shower and custom designed walk-in closet. Three additional bedrooms, two full baths and the convenient laundry room are offered on this level, which is serviced by both front and back staircases. The lower level includes a billiard area, room with epoxy floor making it ideal for exercise or recreation, plus additional areas for storage. A separate three car garage, accessed from the covered rear walkway, includes a sizeable second story that may be finished to suit your every need from pool cabana, recreation center to living space for returning children. Enjoy a leisurely morning walk around your private and serene three-acre property with a stream, followed by an afternoon swim then entertain guests poolside in the evening as you gather around the stone fireplace under the stars. This unique property boasts the character and charm of a historic home while offering the amenities and convenience to suit today’s lifestyle.
