Secluded Bucks County retreat! Stunning cliffside contemporary - Perched high on a rocky cliff, looking down at the tree lined meadow and sparkling stream below, proudly sits this stunning custom designed and built Contemporary Home. Its sleek lines, open spaces and walls of glass were inspired by this one of a kind, spectacular setting. The current owner aspired to capture the essence of this remarkable Bucks County site and the design reflects the intimate relationship between the soaring, sun filled spaces of the interior and the breathtaking landscape beyond. As you drive down one of the Bucks County's most scenic roads,...just before the stream crossing ahead, you will bear off through the woodlands, pass through a gated entry to an open meadow. Looking high up on the ridge to your left, you will get your first glimpse of this magnificent home and spectacular setting. Driving forward you will cross over a private bridge then slowly and gently rise up through the forest to another clearing. Approaching the home site and circular drive, you arrive at the front entry where you will be greeted by a floating flagstone walkway, aquatic plantings, koi pond and a gracious Japanese Maple, all providing a sense of Zen like serenity to the front entry. Entering the front door you are immediately taken by the "WOW" factor of the sophisticated, open, soaring spaces and are drawn to the outrageous views just beyond. The Grand Piano sits at the rear of the great room at treetop level, looking down the valley, meandering stream and tree lined meadow below. The open floor plan continues through the first floor with a large solarium at the East end and an inviting sunken family room to the Western end of the building. In between are a large, modern kitchen, formal dining room, great room, den, and living room. The upper level boasts a total of five bedrooms, including two Master Suites. All the bedrooms are very large and each has a spectacular view of the lush surroundings. Large flagstone terraces sit high on the ridge and provide an awesome area for outdoor entertaining and dining experiences.
