Property Description

Never, in recent times, has the demand for peace, space and privacy been so intense and yet, so little is available. When a property does come on the market that meets those requirements, it should get your immediate attention. The Stone Pond Farm at 5846 Route 412 in Riegelsville is one of those properties. In 1681, King Charles II of England owed the William Penn family a large debt. To pay the debt off, the King offered William Penn a land grant which was named Pennsylvania. Penn advertised Pennsylvania to Quakers back in England, Wales, Germany, Scotland, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. Many, many people bought land from William Penn. William Cook purchased this land on April 7, 1763 and built a large stone barn which still stands in remarkably good condition.  A home was built nearby at the same time, which over the centuries has been incorporated into the now large and comfortable home ready to welcome you. It does not matter what season you choose to pull into the drive as the view from your car is breathtaking. In winter a blanket of snow is untouched and seems to go on forever and beckoning you to put on a pair of x-country skis or snow shoes. Turn your attention to the right and you will see a hand-crafted stone wall and wide steps that form a formal entrance to the house. As you enter, hand sawn wide pumpkin pine floors hint at the history of this home. Just turn your eye up a bit to the window sills -18” deep and incased in stone, sealing out noise and keeping warmth in. If you turn right after entering you will be in the original home, or if you continue straight in you will have a wall of floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors that lead to a wide deck and miles of views to the south (Lake Nokamixon) and west. The deck is the perfect place on summer mornings for your first cup of coffee and at the end of the day you will view some amazing sunsets. Back inside is where you will find the more modern day conveniences of the living room, dining room, dine-in kitchen and owners bedroom with full bath.Keep in mind that a previous owner had envisioned his home as a very comfortable country Bed & Breakfast or at the very least a place where a large family could gather for extended periods of time. 6.5 baths goes a long way in insuring everyone’s comfort. Most hallways end in a charming bedroom and on your first visit you might get a little lost. A stairway from the second floor leads to the central kitchen where a meal can be prepared without leaving your guests. Custom cabinetry and a well laid out work space make kitchen chores more enjoyable. And windows looking out over the rolling hills to the west make sure you won’t miss those spectacular sunsets.The lower level walk-out basement has a bedroom and bath (which guests might use to shower off after a swim in the large and newly renovated in-ground pool) and storage galore. There is also a small utility garage/work space area on the same level and a room which houses all of the utilities for heating and plumbing. The current owners have replaced carpeted areas throughout the house with wood composite flooring and painted the interior with more updated tones. Who doesn’t love flowers? In the warmer months, the gardens are everywhere and they are overflowing with flowers. The meandering gardens and paths lead to the chicken coop - not just any chicken residence, but a Disneyesque Snow White habitat with herb garden. The freshly painted inground pool is currently undergoing complete equipment replacement. A blue stone patio and large shade trees are a perfect place for a nap or afternoon tea. A "Bucks County Party Barn" is a coveted piece of real estate. “Bank barns” were built into hillsides so that livestock could enter the barn through the lower level and hay for the animals could be stored in the upper level. Today, owners may elect to convert this level to host parties of all types.
