(Temporarily off market BUT can be shown to qualified buyers) Nestled into the magnificent country of bucolic Bucks County, sits Shaggy Bark Farm, one of the most spectacular Farmhouse/Barn-like renovations you will ever see. The spectacular gated grounds with 24 hour surveillance, afford privacy and living in natural wonder, from the cascading ponds to the boundless mature trees. Originally built in 1700s as a simple log cabin, this home has had dramatic additions and restorations resulting in the ultimate in a relaxed rustic elegance that stays true to historic origins but with a glorious modern twist. This eight year renovation is a true masterpiece... the center of the home, of course, is the kitchen and two plus story great room. A barn was purchased and disassembled and then strategically placed to create the most incredible architectural details. The vast custom kitchen that has been featured in several magazines, has cabinetry by "Plain & Fancy" and a custom island by local artisans. The marble counter tops including the island were hand picked. A subzero with glass doors, an 8 Burner (two are a griddle) Wolf Commercial Range and Commercial Hood, Fischer & Paykal dishwasher drawers, and a plethora of cabinetry. The kitchen overlooks the incredible great room and has 2 large seating areas with wood burning fireplace, multiple french doors to rear terrace for entertaining and enjoyment. Open dining room accommodates large dining parties with lots of light and easy access outside. This entertaining space flows into the living room and the handsome expansive library and office. Exposed beams and architectural lighting abound. The original log house sits seamlessly within the home and leads the way to a loft one bedroom suite. The first floor master with custom concrete fireplace and has French doors to the outside rear terrace. The sumptuous main bath with incredible soaking tub also has a huge picture window to make sure you are always enjoying the incredible grounds. Upstairs are 3 additional bedrooms and two full baths. The third floor is an incredible finished bonus room perfect for a workout room or currently, extra guest space. Country grounds with 3 ponds, gorgeous heated pool/spa,and and adorable pool house. Across the way is a separate cottage/guest house with full kitchen, 1 bedroom, full bath, living room with FP and add'l sleeping loft and a brand new rear patio for added privacy. The detached garage has an incredible home office above that could also double as guest quarters. And, almost 4 ACRES were purchased and all the trees were cleared so you can enjoy sports, hosts weddings or family gatherings, AND, don't forget, PLENTY of room to land the helicopter. Also, a NEW WHOLE PROPERTY Generac!!
