Historic grace meets modern luxury living. A truly unique home brings together all the modern amenities with character and charm. The story began in 1760 as a small log home. In the 1820s, a classic, Bucks County stone manor house addition increased the grandeur. The Family room and Great room share an original portion of the old log cabin wall. It’s considered the last standing log cabin wall in Newtown Township. Dubbed the Jonathan Paxton, Jr. House by its restoration committee paying homage to the owner who expanded it in 1820, it is also the former home of the Stoop Family in the late 1800s. In 2006/2007 it was completely renovated with two modern additions gracing both sides of the home with a spacious gourmet kitchen and stately primary suite. It is rare to find a home so rich in antique warmth with such beautifully proportioned rooms. The rear walking trail leads right into the nearby Linton Hill Chase development. Every corner of this impressive expanded farmhouse has been updated while still maintaining its original classic charm. The airy entertain-in chef's kitchen provides the perfect environment to converse while preparing a meal. A large center island with prep sink and seating, elegant ambiance (exposed stone wall with stained glass window & Travertine tile floor extending into the large dine-in area) and high-end appliances including a Sub Zero refrigerator, Miele convection ovens, steam oven, cook top, and warming drawer complement the kitchen. Located in the heart of the home is an exquisitely unique family room with an open beamed 2-story ceiling, original pumpkin pine wide plank wood floors, copper railings, and views of the backyard. The kitchen, great room, and family room all provide access to the professionally designed tranquil, two-tier, bluestone patio (a perfect place to enjoy coffee, yoga, an alfresco dining atmosphere or a quiet place for an evening read). Upstairs, the stunning primary bedroom retreat comes complete with sitting area, walk-in closet and a newly remodeled Carrera marble bathroom with heated floor and its own balcony. Four additional bedrooms, an office with floor to ceiling fireplace, two jack and jill style bathrooms and a laundry room complete this level. Just above on the third floor, find an expansive entertainment room (currently the "Tiki Bar") with wet bar, perfect as a 6th bedroom or simply for entertaining or your own hidden getaway. A large attic storage room finishes the level. This timeless home also provides a new whole house generator, newer windows, two newly renovated second floor Juliette balconies, two new custom closet systems, 4 Zone HVAC, two car oversized attached garage with custom wine cellar, a large driveway with ample parking, fenced raised garden beds, and so much more! Served by Council Rock North High School and just minutes to historic Newtown Borough for everything your heart desires. What a unique opportunity to add the next chapter to this storied home!
