Location: Carversville, Pennsylvania
This country house may look like it's been around for a while, but it was built just last year in Carversville, of the pastoral Bucks County, Pennsylvania. To create a "farmhouse-industrial feel,” rustic design elements like exposed beams, beadboard walls, and masonry chimneys were joined with a sleek modern kitchen and bathrooms, plus some massive closets.
Sitting on nearly seven acres, the 5,025-square-foot home is constructed of steel and oak, with “enough linear feet of wood to stretch 11 miles,” per the listing. Surrounding the exterior is a party-sized terrace with multiple fire pits, plus sunset views down to the nearby Paunacussing Creek. The hardscaping was created from rock quarried from the building site.
You enter through a front-to-back center hall, with living areas on either side. A corridor runs the full length of the house, allowing access to every room without going through each space. Each room is lined with one-and-a half inch thick oak floors, with exposed beams above and often industrial lighting.
Modern touches include the contemporary kitchen, which has a huge polished concrete island, stainless-steel appliances (including a dishwasher, two built-in beverage refrigerators, a built-in refrigerator/freezer and 48-inch gas range), and custom elmwood cabinetry.
The main bedroom suite has a vaulted ceiling and comes with a huge dressing room, contemporary bathroom, and office/lounge space. The second floor holds two more bedrooms, two "pajama rooms", a hall bathroom, and laundry area. The fourth bedroom, plus a full bathroom, are on the top floor.
A breezeway connects the house to a three-car garage, which has a vaulted-ceiling party room above. Tucked off a tiny country road, the property is asking $2.895 million.
