|A country road so picture perfect and beautiful that it conjures images of a quieter and gentler time, like postcards from the past. A long private driveway rolls through sweeping lawns and past two ponds. White birch trees stand sentinel along the fieldstone walls encircling the home. Idyllically situated, Willow Ponds blends all the amenities of gracious living with the spectacular long distance views and natural beauty of Upper Bucks. |
The home, a masterpiece of modern architecture, utilizes local architectural elements such as fieldstone construction and slate roofs and is given a contemporary flair with oversized windows (you can see the lawns, the ponds, the woods), 15 foot ceilings and a dramatic open floor plan.
The kitchen, a true culinary delight, includes a separate walk-in pantry, two ovens, two dishwashers, ash custom cabinets, a 9 � foot Corian center island and sensational lighting. It opens to the formal dining room with its large stone fireplace framed in Kentucky limestone.
The living room, a grand focal point with warm curved walls, floor to ceiling windows, built in entertainment area and a second stone fireplace. A lofted library includes built-ins and is situated above the living room with it own set of stairs for easy access. There are four bedrooms and three baths upstairs including a master suite with adjoining study, each with its own gorgeous and private view. Two powder rooms downstairs, as well as a changing room with shower for a quick rinse after being poolside or playing tennis.
A wonderful home for outdoor entertaining and relaxing. There is a large wraparound and terraced flagstone patio which fronts the home and looks down on the rolling sweep of lawn and ponds, ringed by trees and forest.
The swimming pool with rock-lined waterfall and soothing spa has been designed to artfully blend in with the landscaping and stonework. A regulation Perma-turf tennis court sits high above and looks out to the views of Durham Creek Valley.
