6550 MEETINGHOUSE RD, NEW HOPE, PA 18938 (MLS # PABU475238)
For centuries, Solebury's Aquetong Valley has held some of Bucks County's most precious properties, and one of the most treasured of all is the magnificent Finale Farm. Set far off a bucolic road down a tree-lined drive, Finale Farm is one of Bucks County~s most exceptional estate homes, positioned with serene repose and surrounded by 33 acres that roll out like a verdant carpet in all directions. What began as a very early Colonial log structure perhaps dating to 1704 grew into a manor house with additions completed in 1719 and later. What makes Finale Farm extra special is its recent transformation that preserved all the best of its historical features but incorporated all of the finest in modern European style and finishes. Only the most carefully chosen, imported materials have been used to create a clean-lined, light and bright interior with every modern comfort. Reclaimed French oak flooring throughout all three floors and the Lake House; a custom white Boffi kitchen with a La Cornue range and other true chef-quality appointments; all custom Boffi bathrooms; and all custom lighting designed in New Zealand have created a rare offering in which history and modernism fuse beautifully. Its main living space is expansive, open and sunlit; three fireplaces await winter~s return. Step down to a gracious antique room thought to be the original log cabin from 1704 with original Dutch doors and a walk-in fireplace topped by an impressive 15+" original hand-hewn beam. Private quarters can be reached via two stairwells and include five bedrooms. The main suite has a vaulted ceiling and a sleek, well-designed sumptuous bath. Radiant heat is in both the bedroom and the bath. The second floor is complete with a princess suite, and two bedrooms with a Jack-n-Jill bathroom. On the third floor is one bedroom, a sitting room and full bath. All baths by Boffi. In the west wing of the house there is a gallery-style hall lined with windows overlooking a sun-drenched patio, formal gardens and simple but stunning in-ground pool. Step into a charming brick-floored room with corner domed fireplace, a rather inviting reading nook or library. Just beyond are guest quarters with a gracious living room, French doors which open to a screened porch with views of the pool, and a separate staircase that leads to two bedrooms with a full bath, again custom by Boffi. The grounds are breathtaking: a grand two-story stone bank barn with stalls that could potentially be converted to living quarters or turn this into an incredible party barn! The Lake House, which sits overlooking the lake and creek, is just as magnificent as the main house as all of the same materials were used to create a masterpiece for guests of the magical Finale Farm. And what estate wouldn~t be complete without a custom playground? Surrounded by a wall of boxwoods adjacent to the bank barn, the entire play yard floor is made out of old shredded rubber tires to prevent injury! A magnificent waterfall and stocked pond are the perfect complement to this unspoiled majestic masterpiece situated along the Aquetong Creek. 75 minutes to New York City; 60 minutes to Philadelphia; 45 minutes to Princeton; 50 minutes to the Lehigh Valley. If you are looking for the quintessential farmhouse estate, Finale Farm is it.
