The farm begins with location and location. Your investment and peace of mind are protected. The farm sits directly across from 2011 acres of protected state land which is ninety-eight percent forested with popular boulder climbing up the infamous Haycock Mountain. A right turn out of the driveway and a short walk leads to Lake Towhee - a 552-acre park with trails and a 50-acre lake. If that wasn’t enough, a short 5-minute bike ride reveals 3500 acres of forest, trails, sailing, and fishing at Lake Nockamixon. Additionally, Bucks County Horse Park is 4.6 miles away offering trail riding, competitions in five disciplines, shows, clinics, and the “Thursday Morning Horse Show” in true Bucks County style. More importantly, the farm affords privacy. This is one of a handful of Bucks’ County farms that are secluded and exclusive. Tranquility is the theme of this wonderful setting. A charming tree-lined furrow is the entrance that opens to a picturesque stone farmhouse and equestrian domain. Once inside the estate, a breath is all it takes to understand the flow of the trees and the friendship of nature. You will truly know that you are home. The elegant home affords the space to accommodate the most distinctive gentry. Ample quarters include dual living rooms, large first-floor master, a third-floor office lookout that offers a birds-eye view of the horse barn and riding-ring environment, a huge den, laundry rooms on two floors, and large bedrooms including and old-world room with two-foot window casings. The 5-stall horse barn is open and airy. Many compliments have been received regarding this refuge. A wash stall and large tack room are added. But there is more! A large four-bay German bank barn, refurbished by Amish artisans as recently as 2011 includes new structural modifications. Alterations include a newly poured cement floor, a cement open-wall, new board and batten walls, and a metal roof. Nearly two-centuries old, this barn stands ready for your use. Also, a 12 X 36 run-in has been built alongside the 2 acre “upper field”. If you want a generational property that affords serenity and privacy near the fast-growing and eclectic Quakertown downtown within minutes of myriads of retail establishments and entertainment, this may be your home.
