348,480 sqft Lot
Welcome to this ingeniously re-imagined former mill in the historic bucks county village of spring valley. Ensconced in bucolic nature, this property includes the main home - an eclectic and inspiring reinterpretation of a c. 1744 stone mill - as well as a 19th century stucco-over-stone farmhouse housing two units. This unique homestead is nestled in a park-like setting encompassing 8 acres of walking trails, woods, and cleared pasture space. Multiple footbridges pass over watson creek as it dissects the property, and a peaceful pond offers the perfect spot for quiet reflection. Inside, over 4000 square feet of living, entertaining, and flexible space has been carefully and creatively imagined for contemporary living, while still maintaining the architectural integrity of the original mill. Exposed stone walls, multiple fireplaces, and a goldfish pond beneath a drawbridge where the mill's wheel once turned are a few of the one-of-kind details present throughout. A comfortable kitchen and eating area share in the warmth of a wood stove, while large and open entertaining spaces flow easily throughout the main house's first floor. A great room with cathedral ceilings offers limitless possibilities, even having been used by the current owners as a theatre for puppet shows and other creative endeavors. Up the wide and winding stairs to the second level one will find two well sized bedrooms that share a full bath with adjacent laundry. The third level makes for great additional sleeping space or a multitude of other uses, and offers panoramic views of the estate and beyond. Back downstairs under the main level is a charming and creative series of rooms in what was once the mill's operational core. Two additional bedrooms, another full bath, an open space primed for use as a den or another living room, and a secret hidden office complete this part of the home. Multiple studio and working spaces provide ample places to draw, create, tinker or build, while the property's breathtaking setting and inspiring backdrop will undoubtedly court the muse. All of this, plus an unbeatable location, a mere 2. 9 miles to the heart of doylestown borough and 8. 3 miles to new hope. This is a home to see - come take a look!
