The soul of a Bucks County gentleman's farm is evidenced at first approach, with a long, private drive and gated entry. Fulfilling & surpassing all expectations, the magical qualities of Strawntown Farm begin at introduction to the enchanting stone farmhouse, with a c.1754 origin, & homestead to Jacob & Enoch Strawn. Centered in a remarkable setting, the buildings are surrounded by their own 121 acres, adjacent to 100s of acres of preserved property, with over 5800 acres of state and county park lands nearby. In keeping with the role of a quintessential Bucks County farm, bucolic vistas grace every window... overlooking a classic red barn, adjoining fenced pastures & a large spring-fed pond with dock & stone springhouse. The original farmhouse has been appreciated & tended for generations, boasting vintage architectural antiquities such as exposed stone walls, 6 FPs, an original stone sink, pumpkin pine floors, beamed ceilings & deep windows w/old glass. A recent addition offers an exercise room with resistance pool. The living room, keeping room & family room all have period and walk-in fireplaces & the formal DR opens to a stunning kitchen/great room with custom cabinets, granite countertops, gourmet appliances & cozy fireplace. A private billiard room is tucked away on its own floor. On the 2nd floor the cathedral-ceilinged master bedroom suite has built-ins, walk-in closet & skylit master bath. 3 additional bedrooms & 2 baths complete the 2nd flr. Capturing a trifecta of classic PA farmland, pond, and magnificent barns, these spaces beckon you to while away an afternoon or to walk the acreage on starlit evenings. There is an orchard, raised garden beds, a greenhouse and extensive irrigation system. Multipurpose buildings are perfectly-positioned amidst the rolling acreage, overlooking vistas of manicured horse pastures. The bank barn has been restored, and offers 4 stalls, an adjacent 3 bay garage has a tack room, and the 80'x80' indoor riding arena opens to multiple pastures, dressage ring, run in sheds & miles of raised walking/riding paths. For the horse enthusiast, these facilities rival the best of the best. An authentic log cabin was moved from Ohio & renovated in 2012. This romantic getaway has a living room w/fireplace, vaulted beamed ceilings, keeping room & sleeping loft. Truly beyond the imagination and beckoning one to stay forever, Strawntown Farm is one of the jewels of Bucks County, serenely located in an exquisite and secluded setting.
