For many years, two lovely and sophisticated Country estates served as the Summer residences of the Guggenheim family. These secluded properties provided the privacy that only a prominent family could enjoy. One of these properties, Windwood, in Upper Bucks County, has now become available on the open market. Windwood is approached via a long, meandering drive through a lengthy stand of Oak and Pine. The home, sited in a desirable location, looks out at the New Jersey hillside. The clean, white stucco and clapboard house, circa 1870, has been meticulously maintained through the years and, especially by its last steward. The formal entrance opens to the living room of hardwood floors, stately fireplace and expansive size. All of the rooms boast intricate moldings and/or wainscoting. Directly adjacent to the living room is a period perfect library with bookcases and fireplace. (Currently used as a dining room). The dining room is located next to the 20th century eat-in kitchen, den, powder room and walls of glass that look out at the highly landscaped beds, stone walls and stone patio. From the kitchen area, you can also see the ruins of a stone barn that now serves as a theatrical backdrop for al fresco dining. The junior Olympic sized pool has been re-surfaced with new gunite, piping and equipment. There are two guest homes. A separate cottage is perfect for a caretaker, guests or in-laws. While, the two-bedroom apartment over the garage also satisfies the needs of family and friends. Windwood is a property that you read about or admire in a magazine; but, it is a rarity to find the living manifestation of this concept, hidden within the Bucks County countryside. ***Special Note: 24 hours notice is absolutely required in order to view this property.
