Property Description

Listed below appraised value. Welcome to Night Watch Farm, a beautiful 38+ acre gentlemen's farm located in Bucks County PA. This home at the end of a private lane was built approx 1879, with the latest addition in 1991. As you enter into a sun drenched foyer known as the greenery you immediately see the beauty of this home. In the greenery there are drains in the tile floor for watering the plants as they get their sunshine through the tall windows. From the greenery you go up a few sweeping steps to the landing that leads you to either the living room or into the library. The library has custom cherry book shelves, file drawers, and cabinets. Also in the library is a beautiful pointed stone wall complemented with Mercer tiles. There are many windows for you to enjoy the outside while reading a book or working at your desk. From the library you enter into the hallway and to the mud room. At the end of the exposed stonewall hallway is the butler's kitchen. Thru the butlers kitchen you enter into the homes main kitchen. The homes kitchen was designed to look out into the yard to watch the kids playing, and to keep an eye on the horses out in the pastures. The main kitchen has a double oven, center island sink and prep area, a jet air cooktop, dishwasher, and hickory cabinets. Walk out of the kitchen onto the new 2 tier trek deck that overlooks the in-ground pool and stocked pond. The kitchen also opens up into the family room so you can be involved with your family and guests conversations. The kitchen has a back winding staircase leading up to the master suite. Between the main kitchen and formal dining room is a butler's kitchen with a second double wall oven which comes in handy when entertaining large functions, a counter bar sink, wine refrigerator, and second dishwasher along with additional storage cabinets. The large formal dining room with one of the homes original fireplaces and built-ins is perfect for those special occasions. Thru the dining room you have the living room with a wood burning stove along with an abundance of windows which looks out over the pastures, pond, and woods. Upstairs are 5 large bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The newer master bedroom has a sitting room, 2 walk-in closets, a full master bath with curbless walk in shower and heated tile floor. There are 4 additional nice size bedrooms, one of them being the original master suite that also has its own private bathroom. Two other bedrooms have walk-in closets and are separated with a Jack & Jill bath. There is also another bedroom and a full hall bathroom on this level. A walk up attic can be used for extra storage. Through the greenery and down a few steps you enter into a room that the current owners use as their model train room. There is also a full bathroom in the hobby room.
