From a nearby historic covered bridge, a meandering clifftop driveway ends at a private and unique Bucks County home overlooking the Tinicum Creek below. The natural, unspoiled beauty of the setting caught the attention of these owners and was the ideal place to construct this 6-year-old, 3900-square-foot Tuscan masterpiece where the design and details were built without compromise. Entering the main foyer, a reclaimed-brick pathway in a curved arched hallway teasingly beckons and slowly reveals the great room ahead. Artisan plastering, complemented by antique reclaimed doors, barn beams and plank flooring, achieves the look of a Medici-era European Villa but with the modern comfort, reliability and efficiency that only new construction can provide. The great room, with its wood-burning antique fireplace and French doors, overlooks the stone terrace and stream revealing a functional, open floor plan. The warm ambience continues into the gourmet kitchen featuring custom cabinetry, top-of-the-line appliances, soapstone countertops and a massive island with a separate pantry. Another brick hallway leads to the upstairs bedrooms for the privacy of your guests. Finished with the same attention to detail, these feature private en suites along with Juliet balconies and French doors, each offering beautiful views of the courtyard and stream below. Downstairs is a cozy pub or family room with an attached home office, all with direct access to the patio. The first-floor master wing feels like a world away, accessed by its own hallway. The master bedroom overlooks the patio and stream and has an attached private courtyard. The master bathroom features his and hers vanities, a freestanding tub with an enclosed shower, and two adjacent walk-in closets with a laundry room. A full-sized poured concrete basement offers a finished gym or playroom with the ability to expand further, and also houses the state-of-the-art utilities with a private Bilco entrance for servicing. The 11-acre property is part of 79 permanently protected acres by the Tinicum Conservancy and bordered by an additional 100 protected acres. Enjoy the privacy from neighbors, yet close enough "to civilization" to be only a few minutes' drive to shopping and fine restaurants and as little as 90 minutes from NYC.
