THIS PROPERTY HAS BEEN RENTED FOR ONE YEAR!!! IF YOU HAVE BUYERS, PLEASE EMAIL ME. For centuries, Solebury's Aquetong Valley has held some of Bucks County's most precious properties, and one of the most treasured of all is the magnificent Finale Farm. Set far off a bucolic road down a tree-lined drive, Finale Farm is one of Bucks County s most exceptional estate homes, positioned with serene repose and surrounded by 33 acres that roll out like a verdant carpet in all directions. What began as a very early Colonial log structure perhaps dating to 1704 grew into a manor house with additions completed in 1719 and later. What makes Finale Farm extra special is its recent transformation that preserved all the best of its historical features but incorporated all of the finest in modern European style and finishes. Only the most carefully chosen, imported materials have been used to create a clean-lined, light and bright interior with every modern comfort. Reclaimed French oak flooring throughout all three floors and the Lake House; a custom white Boffi kitchen with a La Cornue range and other true chef-quality appointments; all custom Boffi bathrooms; and all custom lighting designed in New Zealand have created a rare offering in which history and modernism fuse beautifully. Its main living space is expansive, open and sunlit; three fireplaces await winter s return. Step down to a gracious antique room thought to be the original log cabin from 1704 with original Dutch doors and a walk-in fireplace topped by an impressive 15+ original hand-hewn beam. Private quarters can be reached via two stairwells and include five bedrooms. The main suite has a vaulted ceiling and a sleek, well-designed sumptuous bath. Radiant heat is in both the bedroom and the bath. The second floor is complete with a princess suite, and two bedrooms with a Jack-n-Jill bathroom. On the third floor is one bedroom, a sitting room and full bath. All baths by Boffi. In the west wing of the house there is a gallery-style hall lined with windows overlooking a sun-drenched patio, formal gardens and simple but stunning in-ground pool. Step into a charming brick-floored room with corner domed fireplace, a rather inviting reading nook or library. Just beyond are guest quarters with a gracious living room, French doors which open to a screened porch with views of the pool, and a separate staircase that leads to two bedrooms with a full bath, again custom by Boffi. The grounds are breathtaking: a grand two-story stone bank barn with stalls that could potentially be converted to living quarters or turn this into an incredible party barn! The Lake House, which sits overlooking the lake and creek, is just as magnificent as the main house as all of the same materials were used to create a masterpiece for guests of the magical Finale Farm. And what estate wouldn t be complete without a custom playground? Surrounded by a wall of boxwoods adjacent to the bank barn, the entire play yard floor is made out of old shredded rubber tires to prevent injury! A magnificent waterfall and stocked pond are the perfect complement to this unspoiled majestic masterpiece situated along the Aquetong Creek. 75 minutes to New York City; 60 minutes to Philadelphia; 45 minutes to Princeton; 50 minutes to the Lehigh Valley. If you are looking for the quintessential farmhouse estate, Finale Farm is it. (Square footage is an ESTIMATE. Purchaser responsible for accuracy)

** One of 10 Nationwide Finalists for HGTV Homes w/a History ** . In 1726, a tract of land known as Hickory Ridge, a high point in what is now Howard County, MD, was ~patented~ by royal land grant to Col. Henry Ridgeley by King George II. A stone cottage was constructed circa 1749, &, as George Washington was taking office in 1789, Col. Ridgeley~s son, Greenberry Ridgeley, began construction of the manor house, which was expanded in the early 1800's. The property was subsequently owned by notable Maryland families including The Hopkins, The Owens, & The Clarks. During the 75-year Hopkins period, it was known as White Hall, after their family home near Annapolis. Beautifully maintained & carefully restored by the current owner over the last 35 years, Hickory Ridge is listed on The Maryland Historic Trust & lends its name to one of the 10 villages of Columbia. The property is sited on 64 acres in Highland, MD, close-in to shopping & amenities. Approached by two gated, tree-lined lanes & boasting classic period details & exemplary materials & craftsmanship, Hickory Ridge comprises the manor house, the 1749 cottage, carriage house/office, & an English greenhouse. First-class equestrian facilities include two barns with a total of 20 stalls, a separate tack room & gym, eleven double-fenced paddocks, five run-in sheds, two exercise rings, & a trail. Completing the grounds are a 3-car garage & a large equipment shed. The bucolic setting is meticulously landscaped & graced by specimen trees, a large meadow & woods, 4 ponds, historic boxwoods, stacked-stone walls, brick pathways, & English-style gardens. At the Manor House, unlock the 200+ year-old door with the original lock & key, welcome your guests into the stunning reception hall, & entertain them on the sweeping side porch. Choose the evening's wine from the incomparable underground barrel-ceiling wine cellar, enjoy a lavish meal in the gracious dining room, & then repair to the formal living room for an aperitif, or retreat below to your own Jockey Club Pub to draw an ale or watch the big game. Outside, stroll among the English gardens or host a barbecue in the secluded picnic grove by the large pond. Overnight guests may be comfortably accommodated in the charming 2BD cottage. At leisure, enjoy the large bedrooms, high ceilings, & modern baths. Read a book in the paneled library or appreciate the view from the sunroom. Cook gourmet meals in the modern kitchen and savor them in the family dining room, once the original 18th century kitchen. Personal business may be attended to in the large, private 3rd-floor office. In winter, cozy up to one of 8 fireplaces. Venture outside, take-in the sublime setting, & relish the quiet and privacy. Stroll through the lush gardens or meditate in the tranquil hidden Zen garden. Enjoy the cottage butterfly garden by day, or the ubiquitous fireflies at night. Nurture plants in the greenhouse, workout in the gym, jog along the trails, or take a dip in the 50x25 heated pool. Comprising 12 separately deeded parcels, including 7 approved building lots, Hickory Ridge offers many possibilities for future owners. The ability to construct additional homes provides the perfect opportunity for a family compound for multiple generations. For those desiring a smaller estate, the secondary parcels would lend themselves to divestiture without disturbing the sight lines from the main house. The large barn & surrounding paddocks currently house an independent equestrian business, which could continue, providing the ambiance of an active horse farm & income, leaving the second barn & paddocks for personal use. With an unrivaled location in the heart of Howard County, & within easy reach of Baltimore, Washington, & Annapolis, this historic estate offers luxury & comfort for family living, elegant space for grand entertaining, facilities to pursue your equestrian dreams, & a rare close-in sanctuary for those seeking privacy with easy access to area amenities.

This beautiful 423-acre estate in Waterford, Virginia is a rare opportunity to own one of the largest remaining tracts of land located in the heart of Loudoun County. Known as the Brown Family Estate, this property has its original 1700 manor house still standing, creating a time warp back to earlier centuries and making it a secret getaway from everything around you. This beloved manor house has a lot of potential and could be restored to its previous glory. It is believed that the first Catholic Mass ever to be celebrated in Loudoun County was performed at this estate. The current zoning for the five parcels that make up this estate is an AR-1 which allows flexibility for the future owner.~~A 2012 study commission shows that under the current by-right zoning this property could hold an 84-home development. The AR-1 zoning allows for possibilities such as a Bed and Breakfast, a Conference and Training Center, a church, a Virginia Farm or Winery and more.~~ In addition, the property has a cell tower that provides $44,400 annual revenue. This estate also can be placed into a Permanent Conservation Easement which provides both State and Federal Tax Credits. This historical, unique property has great potential and abounds with opportunity!
