Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

Distinguished…Refined…Established. It is a rare pleasure to encounter such a stunning residence with timeless appeal. As one would expect of an estate of this caliber, there is a quiet dignity at first approach through the gated entrance, down a long winding drive, past specimen plantings and seamless gardens, to the handsome, 1939 stone and stucco manor home centered amidst 22 acres. Meticulous renovations and additions have provided every amenity for an inspired lifestyle. No detail was spared in the design and construction. Flawlessly blending Old World craftsmanship with every modern convenience, the stone residence is replete with stylish elegance and the fine appointments of high ceilings, antique cherry hardwood floors and deep moldings. The quality of this manor home is remarkable, with elaborate stone work and 18 inch walls. Classic in design and detail, the living spaces include elegant formal rooms, a handsome family room, a grand, two-story pub room with a second floor library, custom-designed theatre room with reclining leather chairs and bar, dual staircases, an elevator, game room and a garden room with a year round lap pool. The gracious interior spaces are detailed with spectacular millwork, exquisite finishes, custom moldings, barrel and coffered ceilings and seven fireplaces. A genteel blend of grace and subdued elegance, without ever being intimidating, the layout creates an inviting environment perfect for entertaining. The gourmet kitchen is reminiscent of an English estate with a plethora of cabinets and granite work surfaces as well as every appliance required by a master chef. The primary suite is an intimate retreat offering a separate sitting and dressing area, a fireplace, walk-in closets, a sumptuous master bath and a deck for sunbathing or stargazing – all overlooking meadow, perennial gardens and hillside vistas beyond. Beautifully appointed, warm and luxurious elements abound. All five bedrooms are en suite and are presented on a gracious scale, befitting the size of the home. A detached 2007 “barn” was designed to incorporate a batting or golfing cage and offers a full second floor guest or caretaker’s residence over the attached garages. Ten garages, a porte-cochere entrance and private, chauffer courtyard will delight the car enthusiast. Numerous stone verandahs overlook a spectacular inground pool with infinity waterfall, grotto, circular slide and spa - all surrounded by stone walls, tended gardens, two outdoor barbeques and four fire urns. Adjacent is a tennis court and a handsome, reproduction Bucks County stone cottage, designed as the pool house. Inside, a full kitchen, bath, lofted second floor and walk-in fireplace are presented in classic detail. A detached greenhouse and raised-bed garden area are positioned for southeast exposure. All of these abundant recreation facilities provide multiple options for exercise and outdoor enjoyment. Belle Terre is set in a classic, picture post card landscape, where each eye-catching turn provides a host of rich hues and attractive accents. Ever-changing vistas, from every vantage point, provide scenery in Autumn and Winter as stunning as in Spring and Summer.
