Property Description

The Diabase Farm embodies the charm and serenity of a historic Bucks county Farmhouse yet offers a unique sense of community and belonging with the neighboring farms. This property honorably bears the indelible mark of being part of William Penn~s ~Manor of Highlands~ and it~s 4.25 acres is part of a 133 acre preserve along with a classic red bank barn and outbuildings that have been carefully and thoughtfully restored. Every addition assumes some portion of the history of those who have lived within its walls. The original part of the home dates to 1750 and takes a step back in time with a built-in wet bar, wide planked chestnut floors, wood-beamed ceilings and a handsome original walk in fireplace with working baking oven. Adjacent is charming sitting area or office that opens to a magnificent blue stone patio with flowering trees and bushes creating a private oasis to enjoy that morning coffee or afternoon tea. It even boasts a little piece of history of its own with a ~secret look-out~. In 1988, John Milner designed an addition that features an open and modern space. The spacious kitchen was designed by William Draper and is graced with a remarkable center island with a hanging apple rack, an abundance of cabinetry and incomparable craftsmanship. Sure to be the centerpiece of the home, this kitchen was once featured in ~House Beautiful~ and opens to a bright sunroom with a wall of windows and skylights that overlooks the beautiful outdoors. The original stone wall has open windows and gorgeous shutters that offer a pass through to the dining room where you will enjoy holiday gatherings with its rich detailed moldings, deep windowsills and built ins. Off the kitchen is a wonderful space with painted charlequin floors that would make a perfect butler~s pantry for those who love to entertain. It is connected by a formal front entry and porch. Upstairs you will find two spacious main bedroom suites. The newer en-suite has a updated bath with pedestal sink and a luxurious claw foot tub. A laundry room is conveniently found on this floor as well. Two bedrooms on the third floor each share a modern bath and epitomizes Colonial charm but with modern comforts, like heat, air conditioning and indoor plumbing. You can feel its early origins in all the fine details along with a fully restored barn, a detached three car garage, a secret bomb shelter from the WW II era, currently a wine cellar. In addition, the 1850~s carriage house has two living units along with a two car garage. A stone patio with an enchanting flowering terrace is a place of tranquility overlooking a spring-fed pond with large-mouth bass complete this hidden piece of paradise. With the preservation of all of Diabase Farm now in place, it will remain a semi-rural place, hidden from the public~s view, a place to follow the seasons, enjoy nature and take the time to enjoy the simpler things in life.
