43 STREET RD, NEW HOPE, PA 18938$1,795,000


Diabase Farm- The iconic unspoiled Diabase Farm is tucked away on 4.25 acres in the midst of 133 acres of preserved land in one of Upper Makefield’s most prized locations. Situated back a long driveway w/outbuildings and a big red barn that speak to the property’s agricultural past, the house offers magnificent sweeping views of fields & a sizable spring-fed stocked pond. This quiet and serene setting is a rare find, & the main residence w/its earliest section & still pristine, equally so. The house was built in sections dating from 1750. Enter into a comfortable, sunlit newer addition designed in 1988 by noted historic-preservation architect John Milner. Built by Trueblood, it features exposed stone walls, an entry foyer with powder room, spacious kitchen with cabinetry by William Draper, island and ample storage (the kitchen was featured in House Beautiful when new) and sunroom with vaulted ceiling, cork flooring and banks of windows overlooking gardens, specimen trees and flowering shrubs. Adjacent is an inviting formal dining room with fireplace and windows looking out to the sunroom. Formerly the kitchen, a gallery/sitting room features a charming checkerboard painted floor and connects to a formal front entry with porch. Next, step into the heart of the home: a fabulous living room that is the oldest part of the house & wears its age so well-you can feel its early origins in its scale, details & walk-in fireplace with bake oven. A home office added in 1943 features a fireplace w/Delft tile surround and warm pine paneling. Private quarters upstairs include a main bedroom suite w/its original chestnut flooring, exposed beams and half-fireplace, originally a space for hot coals, all important original details. The newer en-suite tile bath includes a Kohler “Birthday” claw foot tub, and stall shower. Another 2nd floor bedroom is en-suite, outfitted with an updated tile bath, pedestal sink & tub! Two bedrooms on the 3rd floor each have a unique personality and share a modern bath. The original farmhouse offers deep sill windows, old board floors, orig. hardware, tall ceilings,chimney & curio cupboards,& even a secret look-out! The property offers a det. 2-story stone & frame building with 2 apts. & 2 garage bays, a stone and frame bank barn restored by the Amish,a det.3-car garage, secret bomb shelter & wine cellar, pond, lovely flagstone terraces, specimen flowering trees & shrubbery,& boasts a significant part of history with a beyond compare setting!
