There is no substitute for the eye of an architect when designing a home for a special site. A creation of architect Lynn Taylor, builder Bruce Lesser and landscape architect Carter van Dyke, this 3,024 SF residence with separate guest house is in a prime location in Doylestown Borough overlooking the Doylestown Country Club. Taylor has made the most of its views and natural light; Van Dyke handled setting, lined in stone knee walls with gardens offering visual interest in all four seasons. Its sun-splashed interiors are open and airy with an emphasis on indoor/outdoor flow. Taylor, known for his smart placement of windows, made sure both the house and the ~potting shed~ (the guest house/office/garage) capture the golf course views. Its main living spaces are open and accommodate a traditional or modern aesthetic with hardwood floors in most of the first floor. The living room with gas fireplace has two sets of French doors: a front set opens to a front patio and a rear door opens to the backyard. A centerpiece of this residence is a top-quality 2015 kitchen designed by Charles Weiler. The copper farmhouse sink inspired a custom copper hood topping the six-burner gas cooktop and custom pendant lights over the spacious island. Appliances are Jenn-Air and Sub-Zero. The natural cherry cabinets are topped in granite and ceramic, stone-like tile covers the floor. A harmonious final touch is the ledger stone backsplash behind the cooktop. Dine by the window with its own built-in seat, or use the adjacent formal dining room, which also has access to your summer ~living room,~ a spacious screened porch ready for al fresco dining or lounging with a TV at the ready. Step down from the kitchen to a family room with yet more verdant golf course views. Two good-sized bedrooms, one now used as a den, a full bath, powder room and laundry room complete the first floor. Upstairs is the main bedroom suite with volume ceiling, walk-in closet and dressing room lined in built-ins and a bath with double vanity, tub and steam shower. Enjoy the bedroom~s private veranda, your front-row seat for the Country Clubs July 4 fireworks. The home~s basement with fireplace is partially finished and suitable for hobbies and storage. At the rear of the property is the potting shed, a beautifully designed space, designed by Lynn Taylor and built by Bruce Lesser, that can be a guest apartment or a professional office. The first floor includes custom cabinetry designed by Lesser, a Mercer tile countertop. Upstairs is a vaulted-ceiling great room with hardwood floors, bedroom with a walk-in closet, and full bath with steam shower. Like the main house, this living space has many bespoke features that add to its appeal. A two-car garage with extra storage area is on the first floor of the potting shed. There is extra parking at the front of the property. With a setting that makes one feel like every day is a vacation, a streetscape featuring some of Doylestown~s finest residences, and a location walkable to all that the borough offers, this is a must-see offering.
