This c.1720 great escape farmhouse blends artistic texture and historical radiance with modern amenities! Sited on 10 acres of open fields and woodlands, relish in nature?s tranquility from perfect outdoor rooms like the covered porch and European-style courtyard, or the expansive gravel terrace with fire pit, all secluded by lush gardens, or the heated 50x25 saline pool. The 4,944sf interior boasts large rooms that embrace you with a warm ambiance exuded by stone walls, beams, and creative design indulgences. The open concept gourmet country kitchen is the heart of the home with custom cherry cabinets, soap stone counters and sink, high-end appliances, and heated tile floor. It is open to the family room with vaulted ceiling and loft. Industrial glass doors open to the dining room with walk-in fireplace Jotul stove, copper accents and floor of 19th century Philadelphia Roofing Co terracotta tiles. The living room is centered on a fireplace with Hearth Stone insert and offers six windows with artisan sills, stained glass panel, pine floors with rich patina and a door to the courtyard. The sizable office, originally a pub room in Colonial times, has black walnut floors and elevated stone fireplace. Two sets of stairs lead to three bedrooms and laundry room. Two bedrooms in the original section have fireplaces and rich wood floors. The second-floor bathroom with radiant floor heat offers glass shower, garden tub, artisan mirror and cherry counter, and hammered copper sink. A hobby or bonus room is tucked away for quiet time. The main bedroom is a loft-like private sanctuary on the third floor with wide-plank pine floors, custom iron work and a wall of large French doors that open to views of towering trees, pool, and neighboring lake. The closet resembles a boutique with sitting area and open dressing and storage. The bathroom is uber unique with stone and industrial glass shower for bathing in the treetops! In addition to providing storage, the finished lower level offers a quiet media room, ideal for teens who need their private space, and an exercise room or second office. Live off the land and grow your own in the large vegetable garden with composters, and your chickens will be happy in the stylish coop, rewarding you with dozens of eggs! Plenty of south-facing open field for solar panels, too. A 6-car detached garage provides plenty of room for autos and workshop. Recent upgrades include multi-zone propane boiler, whole-house generator, well pressure tank, water filtration system, basement waterproofing and exterior French drain. 2017 low-mound septic system. NYC is 2 hours, Philadelphia is 60 min, 30 min to the Lehigh Valley. Come for a weekend, stay for a lifetime!
