5441 ASH RD, Doylestown, PA 18902  

This picturesque estate reminiscent of an English country Gentleman's Farm epitomizes quintessential Bucks County. Much admired, the estate is situated on two of the prettiest roads in the county and is beautifully designed to cascade into the hillside. Its location atop the hill & its abundance of windows fills the house with light & allows for commanding views of the valley below. Not just beautiful, the property offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of history. With keystones dating the home to 1731 and the barn to 1728, the original buildings pre-date the American Revolution. Additions & updates have been made over the years with attention to detail & a conscious effort to maintain the integrity & stately beauty of this extraordinary home. Random width pumpkin pine & oak flooring has been re-finished to its original luster. Exposed beams and herring bone brick floors in the tavern room are a perfect complement to the huge stone fireplace. The carriage house, offering a retreat for guests, in-laws or au pair, is attached to the main house by a glassed-in breeze way and features one of the homes' 5 en-suite bedrooms, a family room with fireplace, office & library with built-in bookshelves. Other features of the main house include kitchen with custom cherry cabinets & butcher-block counters, gracious living room w/ fireplace, master bedroom w/ custom bathroom. The stone bank barn is a particularly lovely replica of barns found in England's Lake District and features a light-filled, 2 story, studio, guest quarters, original horse stalls, feed bins and original barn space is great for country parties! Indoor pool has adjoining entertaining area, laundry facility, 3 showers & kitchenette. Walled potagere kitchen garden w/ raised beds, chicken coop, 2 paddocks, pond, stream and spring house complete this spectacular 10 acre property. Conveniently located between New Hope & Doylestown with easy access to NYC, Phila & Princeton.
