Down a long lane that follows the flow of the Neshaminy Creek sits Creekside, the setting of the 45th Bucks County Designer House & Gardens. A comfortable c. 1850 farmhouse is the core of this expanded three-level home redesigned to include large, open spaces while keeping with Bucks County features like stone fireplaces and wood floors. Situated on 17 acres in the Castle Valley area, the wooded setting’s proximity to the Creek beckons impressionist painters. Interior and landscape designers will enjoy many opportunities to showcase their talent and craft. Features include a bright-and-airy great room with a vaulted-and-beamed ceiling and two-story stone fireplace; a large eat-in kitchen and an inviting dining room with the coziness of another fireplace and warm woods. The highlight is the second-floor master suite with its gorgeous stone fireplace and an added bonus of a wraparound Bavarian balcony featuring Old World-style heart railings. The second and third floors feature five more bedrooms, a small reading nook, two bathrooms – all in the original part of the home which boasts the original heart pine floors, 19th-century farmhouse doors, and wrought iron hardware. Additional design space is featured in the ample basement, think craft studio or wine cellar; there’s even a root cellar.
This home is also perfect for outdoor entertaining with a party-sized deck and covered bar; a slate patio right off the kitchen for an elegant dinner party, and a brick patio with its built-in stone grill perfectly suited for summer barbecues.
And finally, a 4,000 sf pole barn which will be home to the 2020 Designer House Boutiques and Café.
