Description

Tranquility and a bit of heaven, Cooks Creek Farm is one of the jewels of Bucks County. Historically, these stone manor houses were built with southern exposure to capture the light, positioned on the high point of their acreage to overlook their fields and pastures, and with long driveways leading past bank barns and farm buildings. Such bucolic settings are rare now~ but amongst them, this gracious gentleman~s farm stands out as an example of the very best.The approach, down a half mile long drive, across a bridge over Cooks Creek, brings one to the center of a 34 acre Bucks County estate. The imposing stone manor house, with lovely vistas from every window, is in impeccable order. ~Quintessential~ is the best adjective to accompany every description of this circa 1751 farm, part of an original William Penn grant. Whether it is privacy, beauty, architecture or history that you desire, Cooks Creek Farm will not disappoint.Both inside and out, an 18th century character and timeless dignity are evident. Enhanced with upscale appointments, this historic home welcomes and envelops with warmth and grace. The foyer and living room, both with Moravian fireplaces, are testament to the home~s pre-revolutionary heritage. A stunning kitchen renovation showcases honed marble, custom cabinetry and top-of-the- line appliances. The family room, living room, sunroom, kitchen and dining room all overlook meticulously landscaped acreage and meadows that have been allowed to return to their natural definition. The first floor layout invites elegant entertaining, and each room is richly-laden with exemplary woodwork. Throughout the house there are six fireplaces. On the second floor, there is a master suite with fireplace, and a luxurious new bathroom and spacious walk-in closet. Unusual for a home of this vintage, you can enjoy these soothing enhancements while luxuriating in the warmth that radiant-heated random width floors, deep window sills, and plaster walls can impart. Two additional bedrooms and a fabulous new bath complete the second floor. The third floor bedroom/bonus room is vaulted to embellish the space, and will be a room that family and guests request every time. With the home~s generator, you can relax and invite a crowd for every holiday. Outside areas for intimate or formal gatherings abound. Patios and pool area with rock walls are nestled on the southerly and westerly sides of the home, creating a place at day~s end for family and friends to gather. Weddings and other special occasions have always graced this area with memories that befit and embellish the history of Cooks Creek Farm. In keeping with the role of a bespoke Bucks County Estate, there is a charming guest cottage and a renovated Pennsylvania bank barn, offering garaging for four cars, and a party room above enhanced with two convenient bathrooms. Although PA barns are a disappearing item on our landscape, those that have been maintained and enhanced are truly a rare find. Adding to the farm~s allure is a greenhouse that will let you explore your creative side. At Cooks Creek Farm, every detail is presented artfully and joyfully, in a setting that provides seclusion in the summer and beautiful valley views in winter. This private paradise loses touch with the world just over the hills and yet remains within 15 minutes to Routes 309, I-78, and the Northeast extension of the PA turnpike. Relax and let the days settle in around you.
