An English Manor Tucked Away in the Bucks Countryside

A meticulous two-year renovation transformed what Addison Wolfe Real Estate partner/realtor Art Mazzei describes as a “stately stone farmhouse” into a “spectacular English country manor.” No stone was left unturned. Literally. The parking square and walkways were dug up and laid anew with a skinny brick that was imported from Europe. The pool, likewise, was ripped out and replaced with a new heated one, complete with a spa and a waterfall, all of which sits atop a perch with an unspoiled view of the creek that runs throughout the nearly 25-acre Upper Bucks County estate.

A “Game of Thrones”-size fireplace continues to command the great room, which now floods with sunlight thanks to opposing glass walls. Wide-plank French oak floors run throughout much of the home, as do exposed beams.
