Perched along the ridge above the Delaware River Valley and enjoying long-distance views to the East is the 98+ acre Buttonwood Farm. Formerly known as the Guggenheim Estate and more recently developed to include a turn-key equestrian facility, the property remains secluded in its natural environs of mature forest and open fields. An historic red brick school house is sentinel and the quarter-mile long driveway delivers you to the c.1823 stucco over stone residence, standing proudly over this very rare piece of Upper Bucks County acreage. Tastefully restored and enlarged in the late 1970s, the five bedroom home offers the understated charm of country living. The tree-shaded and tranquil covered front porch looks out past columns to the ivy-covered structurally restored stone bank barn with kennels. The entry hall is lined with built-in cabinets and shelves and opens to the large living room with wood-burning fireplace and several large windows framing the verdant views. Intimate gatherings will relish the dining room, originally the summer kitchen, with exposed beams and fireplace. The kitchen is bright and cheery with doors to the large bluestone terrace. First floor en suite bedroom offers two large walk-in closets. Turned stairs deliver you to original floors, rich with the patina of history. The main bedroom suite is light-filled with 6 large windows and 9' ceiling and includes a bathroom and a hall of closets, plus an entry to the library, nursery or fifth bedroom with fireplace. Two more bedrooms and a bathroom are down the hall. There is a detached 2-car garage. Full equestrian facilities include the 70x160 lighted indoor arena, barn and stables with 12 stalls, a -mile galloping track, a small cross-country course and three fenced paddocks. Acres of open tree-lined fields offer additional pasture, endless riding trails, and trouble free manure management. The indoor arena, built in 2004, is board-and-batten sided with trussed roof and blends in seamlessly with the overall serene country estate setting. The doors at each end are true east and west; the sides lined with windows and mirrors; skylights and custom Footings Unlimited surface of sand, felt, rubber and stone dust mix. Currently in Act 319 (Forestry Reserve) the land offers many possibilities including expansion of a family compound.
