Offered for the first time, Stone Pond Lodge on 45 level acres in the middle of Solebury has been a much-loved retreat for its current owners. Built by Zaveta Custom Homes, it has served as a gathering place for countless celebrations large and small and was designed for year-round recreation. With this much acreage and low taxes, there are even more possibilities for the next owner, who might opt to build an additional home or use it as hobby farm or small equestrian property. Pass across a branch of the Cuttalossa Creek via a small stone bridge and wind through park-like grounds where a European-inspired residence awaits. A welcoming foyer with a graceful floating staircase leads to light-filled interiors. Airy, open living spaces with vaulted ceilings, site-finished hardwood floors and tall windows are designed with access to expansive outdoor entertaining areas via French doors. The pristine kitchen is outfitted with Viking, Sub-Zero, Bosch and Gaggenau appliances, including a six-burner range, plus separate wall and convection/microwave ovens. An island with bar seating and prep sink and a porcelain farmhouse sink with beautiful views through a bay window complete this space. A casual dining area is open to the kitchen, supplemented by a formal dining room with windows on three sides and access to a rear porch. Importantly in these times and for a return to traditional classroom learning, a large room off the kitchen is both a laundry center and a homework area with built-ins that are well suited to students of all ages. Beyond the kitchen is a casual living room with a stone fireplace, rear stairwell and, behind pocket doors, a great room that is more like a cathedral for play and relaxation. Anchored by a huge stone fireplace on one end, this room showcases a built-in wet bar with custom cabinetry by Odhner & Odhner, a huge screen with plenty of seating for the big game or gaming and a desk/office area also by Odhner & Odhner. It can accommodate a 9-foot pool table, full-size shuffleboard, poker table and even air hockey for good measure. French doors access a rear patio that over this past summer served as a screening area for movie nights. Beyond this area, a gorgeous pool with spa and a pool house with full bath, kitchenette and covered patio with TV await. Let’s not forget the firepit, available to extend the outdoor recreation season. Private quarters are upstairs and all bedrooms are en suite. The main suite includes a private balcony with fantastic views and space for a hot tub. Two walk-in closets and a bath with soaking tub, oversized shower, double vanity and separate water closet complete this retreat. There are two additional en suite bedrooms each with a wall of built-ins, plus a large suite over the three-bay attached garage. A completely separate one-bedroom in-law or guest apartment is located over a detached garage that accommodates two cars. With a kitchen, its own balcony with fine Bucks County views, and privacy from the main house, this is a perfect long-term-stay option. As a country house with modern conveniences, a range of indoor and outdoor recreation options and flexible usage for a buyer with animal or farming interests, Stone Pond Lodge is a tremendous offering in desirable Solebury Township.
