1793 COUNTRY LN, Quakertown, PA 18951  

Wind down private Country Lane to arrive at this secluded 20-acre haven of sophisticated country leisure located in rural Haycock, a township established in 1763 with half its 12,600 acres under preservation. From humble beginnings as a farmstead near the foot of Haycock Mountain, the owners revived the mystique of this c.1790 stone house and the results are nothing short of fantastic. Architectural prowess and design genius has resulted in a relaxed stone and cedar retreat in close proximity to Lake Nockamixon and Lake Towhee. The original house stands proud and the cedar-sided addition meshes splendidly with the woodland landscape, expanding the living space into stylish settings worthy of your weekend journeys or your full-time residence. Hand-plastered walls create soft texture throughout while exposed beams, random-width wood floors and redwood mill work add richness. Decidedly European design accents add flair. The original stone walk-in fireplace can be enjoyed in the Old World great room with coined-corner windows and adjoining multi-purpose room. Charming pie stairs lead to the master quarters with bedroom fireplace, rustically sumptuous bathroom plus a bonus room in the paneled attic above. Three bedrooms lie down the long hallway, sharing the light-filled hall bath. The core of the home is the open tiled kitchen and breakfast area and the step-down family room with fireplace. Efficient multi-zone LP heat. Several French doors open to covered porches and the al fresco dining flagstone terrace with pergola, fabulous outdoor living spaces that wrap around the house allowing access to the landscaped grounds, the 3-acre pond with walking trail and the natural-look heated in-ground pool. The guest cottage is designed around the pool and offers an additional 900sf of living with great room, two bedrooms, kitchenette, full bathroom, and garage. Tranquility and gracious living is ready for the discerning buyer 90 minutes from NYC, 75 from Philadelphia.
