Spacious and Gracious! This custom built 5 bedroom home is set back on 1.4 acres in small community of Country Ridge just 5 minutes from the center of Doylestown Boro. You won't find a home anywhere where each and every room is oversized for extra enjoyment. As you walk up the front path you'll notice the beautiful stone work. These stones are formed from, and set in concrete removing the negativity that surrounds current stucco homes. You would never know it wasn't real stone. As you enter the front door notice the two story overhang that adds not only protection from the elements but an elegant look. The front door, sidelights and transom are handsome, yet maintain your privacy, with their leaded glass design. The huge two story foyer is flanked by living and dining rooms, both with front bay windows. The dining room has a custom tray ceiling and beautiful moldings that you will see throughout the home. The elegant turned "T" staircase with hardwood treads conveniently takes you upstairs from the foyer or kitchen. The first floor office has a walk-in closet that sides to the powder room. Need a first floor bedroom? It's an easy task to add a shower here. Next you come upon a striking two story family room. With stacked windows and a floor to ceiling stone (gas or woodburning) fireplace this room is a WOW! A half wall and pillar open to a distinctive kitchen. The theme of the home is continued with a 2 tiered island backed with the same stone as the exterior and fireplace. You'll find the breakfast area here plus all the bells and whistles you'd expect,... and probably a few extra including stunning porcelain floors set on a diagonal and with extra design features! From the kitchen you exit into the 4 season addition. This room is the favorite of the household!! With half stone walls and surrounded by windows this is where it all happens - the holiday gatherings, the whole team after a big win. The gang watching the games in the fall/winter and the barbeque from the adjoining patio to feed the crowd after a swim in the sparkling pool, So many activities have already happened here - imagine what you could do. Still more on this level; the mud room doubles as a laundry room and boasts a a laundry chute as well as plenty of cabinets and closets. It is just inside of the oversized (38 X 24) garage which has amazing built-ins for all all your storage needs and will fit a full-sized pickup truck! A powder room (with sink around the corner) is well placed for pool and outdoor activities. Upstairs notice the rooms below as you pass over the "bridge" that connects the Primary Suite to the rest of the second floor. The Primary includes a lovely window to enjoy the views of the rear yard, has two walk-in closets and a luxurious bath with separate WC. Enjoy the privacy this suite enjoys while the remainder of this level hums with life. 5 bedrooms (all large, two huge, and all with excessive closet space), and a sitting room that was cleverly designed with a laundry chute to easily be used as a chase to add another bath. The basement has also been thoughtfully designed. With all the living space upstairs who needs more? Somehow that hobby/play/hang out space area, is a great, while not overdone . Two rooms are finished and ready for play. There is a large utility/storage room, and a crawl space under part of the home has easy access for all your storage needs. The imagination of the children even used it as their fort or get away in their younger years. The yard continues to impress with plantings on all 4 sides of the home. A beautiful inground pool surrounded by wonderful hardscaping and landscaping and a playhouse/shed are all inside a fenced area. Outside the fence there is plenty of flat ground for all kinds of play and even an adult swing set (not only the kids need to have fun). With just a little new carpet here and there, your dream home awaits.
