Stonehaven Farm ~Travel down the long private driveway to this lovingly maintained and improved circa 1730 stone farmhouse situated on a secluded 7.8 acre scenic lot surrounded by 90+ acres of tree nursery and woods that is permanently preserved open-space, offering complete tranquility and privacy. This special oasis is located in the heart of Bucks County in prestigious Buckingham Township yet only 5 minutes from Doylestown. This historic Joseph Fell property was built in three sections ~ circa 1730, with additions in 1810 and 1846. The original charm has been well maintained in the exposed beams, deep windowsills, built-ins, pumpkin pine and oak random-width flooring, pie stair cases, and exposed stone walls. When you arrive to this private compound you will enter the home through a sunlit expansive family room with exposed stone walls, full-length Pella windows and radiant heat flooring. This flows in to the updated kitchen where period details still remain, such as a massive walk-in fireplace, original doors with strap hinges, and an original kitchen ~slop sink~. For more formal gatherings your guests may enter into the main entry foyer which opens to the hearthside living room w/wide planked floors, deep seated windows, and is highlighted by a beautiful fireplace with raised panel wood surround, complete with built-ins. The other side of the entry foyer leads to the cozy den with an outside entry to the paver patio and then the formal dining room also with original built-ins; both rooms adorned with corner fireplaces, wide planked wood floors and fine millwork. A screened-in porch takes in the views of the many plants & flowers in the perennial gardens, the original springhouse and the deer that come out to graze. The 2nd floor of this home features 4 generously sized bedrooms with ample closets and all have beautiful views overlooking this sprawling, lovely property. In two of the rooms there are exposed beam ceilings. In the center upstairs, and what used to be the landing when only two sections of the home existed, is a dressing area with WI closet. Also upstairs are two full bathrooms. A pie staircase allows access to the attic that extends the entire length of the house. The exterior of the property offers a stone and timber frame carriage barn that was completely renovated in 2010, using aged hand-hewn posts and beams from another Pennsylvania barn, keeping it true to the period. This carriage barn features pegged construction, and offers two oversized vehicle bays, each with strap-hinged garage doors, and storage overhead, currently used for storing hay. Space could allow it to be transformed to an art or music studio if so desired. Additionally, the carriage barn has been sectioned off, and contains three horse stalls with dutch doors. The stalls, allowing access on both sides, lead directly to the fenced paddock that doubles as an open riding area with sand and rubberized footing. There are two fenced pastures; one with a run-in shed. More storage can be found in the 19~ x 22~ masonry annex that adjoins the rear of the barn. The present owners have been loving stewards of this property for over 18 years and have invested over $400,000 in improvements & renovations over that time. (Please see the itemized improvement list included with the on-line documents in the MLS.) Horse accommodations include 3 stalls, 2 slip-board and wire mesh fenced pastures, one with a run-in shed, and riding area. This pastoral setting offers easy access to Doylestown, Philadelphia, and New York City, with the privacy and tranquility typically only available in a country setting. Sale includes two separate parcels, (total acreage 7.778 & total taxes $11,117) with a separate residence on the 2nd parcel, suitable for additional storage or can be renovated as a guest house or in-law suite. This rare offering must be seen to be appreciated. Come see, listen, and experience the beauty of Stonehaven Farm for yourselves.
