This stunning custom home, situated on over 6 acres, is being offered for the first time by the original owner. Designed by a noted Greek architect in the style of a Greek aristocratic household, the plans are characterized by large gathering and entertaining rooms, vaulted ceilings and an abundance of windows. Paramount to this design is the concept of capturing the beauty of nature outside and bringing it into the home. The changing landscape of each season can be appreciated from any room either by views of the atrium or from the custom windows and glass doors located throughout. In keeping with the authenticity of the architectural details, many of the building materials were flown in from Europe. An exquisite foyer with Calcutta marble flooring, striking Waterford crystal chandelier imported from Ireland and soaring ceiling sets the grand stage for the rest of the house. The elegant living and dining rooms each boast custom hand laid parquet floors and doors opening up to patios thus offering wonderful spaces for entertaining. Unique double doors lead to the family room with custom handcrafted stone fireplace and windows overlooking the grounds and the atrium. A tasteful den/office is located off the foyer and provides the owner with a private retreat. A large eat-in kitchen with granite counters opens up to the outside terraced patios. At the center of the main floor is the atrium with pond and plantings. Upstairs, the master bedroom features access to a balcony overlooking the side yard. The princess suite has double doors leading to a large deck with sweeping views of the two-level back patio and back yard. All three upstairs bedrooms are spacious and have private bathrooms which have been recently updated with luxury level quartz countertops on vanities. An attached apartment, perfect as a au-pair or in-law suite or private space for guests, offers either an outside or convenient indoor access. The apartment has been freshly painted throughout and the kitchen is updated with new appliances, quartz countertops, cabinets and lighting. A long circular drive leads up to this very special property. The beauty of the natural landscape gives a sense of tranquility and privacy while still being convenient to all that Bucks County has to offer. Located in award winning Council Rock School District.
