A magical setting on one of Buckingham Township's most coveted roads envelops this property, offering two homes on 4.27 hillside acres. With manicured grounds, an inviting inground pool, stone pool shed, and mature perennial gardens, this unique property is simply enchanting. A charming, totally restored vintage guest cottage with 1 Bedroom 1 Bath welcomes you at the foot of a serpentine hillside driveway. At the crest of the driveway is the main residence, which at first glance appears to be a stone and stucco reproduction, but inside is a sleek, updated, 'less is more' home showcasing a neutral palette throughout. It features bleached white oak wood flooring upstairs and down, modern lighting fixtures and ceiling fans, a flexible multi-tiered floor plan, and enjoyment of total privacy. The main residence is ideal for full time or part time living. Its generous living room is finished with built-in cabinetry and a gas fireplace, and leads to a separate dining room, with room for a proper dining table for entertaining, and rear glass enclosed vestibule with French door access to an outside secluded terrace. Flanking the entrance hallway, with coat closet and powder room, is a wonderful home office with two walls of built-in bookcases. Nearby is an open kitchen/breakfast room with terracotta flooring, granite counters, and stainless-steel appliances including Dacor double wall ovens, a Bosch dishwasher, GE electric cooktop, and Subzero refrigerator/freezer with ice maker. Open to the kitchen is a newer addition, a sprawling great room with a wood fireplace near one end, vaulted ceiling, architectural lighting fixtures, and space that allows for whatever use or furniture configuration might suit your needs. Upstairs above the original footprint of the home, the main bedroom suite is sunny and spacious, with two ample closets, and a large dressing room with built-in ironing board, ready for a great walk-in closet, additional home office, or even a nursery, if desired. The main bath offers a jetted tub and shower. Two spare bedrooms are nicely finished, with ample closets, one closet leading to the floored attic above. A hallway bath is finished with white tile flooring, a corner jetted tub and stall shower. The lower level has a finished family or media room with wall-to-wall carpeting, sauna, laundry, and access to the two-car attached garage. There is also a large, newer daylight gym/exercise room that is beneath the newer great room, with the potential to join the two spaces with a staircase, creating a two-level space. Outdoor spaces include a private terrace for dining, sunken fire-pit patio, and the bluestone bordered pool area which is an oasis in and of itself, privately situated and nestled away from the house. The restored guest cottage, on the lower tier of the property, has been beautifully renovated and is totally self-contained. Upon entering through its original Dutch door, the cottage is finished with white plaster and exposed stone walls, wide plank and old brick flooring, and deep sill windows. The dine-in kitchen is outfitted with a stainless stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, deep Franke sink and natural stone counters. The kitchen flows to a gathering room with stone fireplace (non-working) and sunny deep sill windows. On the upper level, the bedroom features a vaulted ceiling with exposed wood beams, built-in bookcases, and exposed stone walls. Down a short hallway is the renovated bath, which included new cabinetry with stone counters, flooring, newly exposed stone walls, and a washer and dryer (2016). The cottage is cozy and beautifully finished with total attention to detail- great for guests, grown children, or even as a home office. This is a property with something for everyone- from the transitional, cool vibe in the main house, to the quintessential old-world charm in the cottage. A captivating and convenient location offering beauty in every season!
