At first glance, Thistle Dew Farm is a quintessential Bucks County farmhouse, nestled elegantly on 9 picturesque acres. Upon entering the home, however, the brilliance of a 1950's mid-century Great Room addition with two walls of floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors unveils itself with breathtaking, unobstructed views of pristine gardens and distant mountains. When the weather turns brisk, the radiant heat, bluestone floor, and the large, stone fireplace assure a cozy atmosphere, perfect for watching the turning leaves or falling snowflakes. The chef's kitchen features ample counter space suitable for a robust mise en place, and a professional Bertazzoni stove accompanied by high-end appliances that will thrill a versatile cook who craves engagement with family and guests while working in the kitchen. The adjacent, pumpkin pine wood-floored Den boasts a full built-in wet bar and has open shelving, a dishwasher, and a double wine fridge. The tile-floored Mudroom with oversize apron sink and wood counters support the utilitarian activities taking place there. Finally, the first floor is accentuated by a comfortable bedroom and a full bath. The second floor with an owner's suite that extends from the front to back of the original stone farmhouse offers an abundance of natural light, copious ceiling height, and recently refinished wood floors. The custom bathroom is a decadent personal oasis. Central to the space a freestanding, copper, and nickel-plated, double-slippered clawfoot tub entices with the promise of ultimate relaxation. The glass barn doors invite you to enjoy the oversized shower with 2 shower heads and wall jets. The washer and dryer and custom built-in cabinets finish out the space. The third floor completes the main house with one more bedroom and a large walk-in closet with custom built-in cabinets. An on-property annex for guests is just a stone's throw away; your company will adore a charming cottage just outside the kitchen door. The stone fireplace with wood stove insert keeps the chill away and the renovated full bath with skylight will ensure your visitors comfort. If working from home is something you desire, the space above the bank barn/garage is ideal. There is ample room to create the perfect remote office. Turning to the outdoors, Cooks Creek, a protected watershed for trout in Bucks County, borders the east side of the property. The raised garden beds yield their bounty to the west and the custom labyrinth is in between. The greenhouse will aid in fostering your yearly seedlings which can be easily transported to the deer fenced raised beds. The flowers, shrubs, and trees have all been hand-curated and planted for enjoyment throughout the seasons. Watering is made effortless by roughly 2 acres of installed underground irrigation. Easy access to Rt.78 or the PA turnpike, 90mins to NYC or Philadelphia. Close to shopping, schools, and amenities.
