With the impressive distinction of being among the very earliest settlements in Pennsylvania, Pheasant Hill Farm is arguably one of Bucks County's finest treasures. Situated on 47 acres, comprised of two separate tax parcels, this quintessential country estate has been recognized as a historic landmark by the Heritage Conservancy, making it one of the most significant properties to come on the market in a generation. A long, bowered driveway, flanked on either side with split-rail fencing, passes under a shady grove of hickories, oaks, and maples to set the scene for a dramatic reveal: the driveway opens to a dazzling hill-top retreat, perfectly private ? cradled as it is in the woods ? but with truly breathtaking views of the Delaware River valley and the rolling hills of New Jersey beyond. To the west, holding court at the center of this collection of 18th century buildings, is the three-story main house, with fieldstone walls, vaulted rooflines and gable-end chimneys reminiscent of the property's colonial beginnings. Inside, you'll find four bedrooms, three baths, an eat-in kitchen, a formal dining room, a sun room, two drawing rooms, and a cozy tavern (complete with a brass-topped bar). Lovingly-maintained details abound: polished wide-plank floors, walls of stone and hand-troweled plaster, original woodwork, lead-glass window panes, hand-forged iron hardware, detailed stenciling, and fireplaces almost too numerous to count, including a rare arched walk-in fireplace in the kitchen. Just outside, an Amish greenhouse watches over a classic kitchen garden, with brick-lined walkways, and a series of raised beds for vegetables and cutting flowers. Extending out from the house to the east is a handsome lawn with stately hedges and stacked stone walls that step down to a sweeping open field. At the far end of the lawn, overlooking a grotto-style plunge pool, is the two-story guest cottage, with its own living area, sleeping alcove, kitchen, bedroom, bath, and walk-in cedar closet. To the west of the main house are twin timber frame and stone barns, the first of which has been transformed into a stunning living space with a vaulted ceiling, massive exposed beams and 20-foot tall windows, perfect for an artist's studio, gym, office, or home theater. The second barn maintains its original character with giant wood giant double doors and towering stone walls,making it an ideal and dramatic setting for open-air dinners or cocktail parties.
