"Serenity Farm" is a curated compound designed around 40+ rolling acres of preserved Bucks County, PA farmland creating the ultimate weekend retreat or full-time home. Your journey begins as you drive through the beautiful winding lane to arrive at the restored 19th Century farmhouse overlooking two repurposed barns, an orchard and a vegetable garden perfect for entertaining family and guests. This awe-inspiring private estate is the realized vision of luxury and comfort in a pastoral setting creating a magical paradise to be restored and rejuvenated with stone patios, communal niches, fire-pits, and meditation stones all focusing toward the beautiful views of the country landscape. The restored farmhouse exudes a contemporary style with newly plastered walls, plank flooring and period moldings bringing the perfect blend of history and modern design. The main living area has an open concept living and dining room with a cozy fireplace, large windows with country landscape views and inviting door to the outdoor patio. The dining area is set up for intimate gatherings around the designer table and chairs illuminated by a Lindsey Adelman chandelier. The patio is accessed through the kitchen and features a covered pergola and fireplace perfect for dining al fresco. The custom kitchen with center island with a French La Cornue gas stove/oven and breakfast bar appeals to the inclusive chef. The oversized sink is framed by large windows for viewing the changing seasons.
