Property Description

This glorious property with spectacular gardens known as Coltsfoot Farm is situated on 5.6 private acres and is simply breathtaking! It enjoys wonderful privacy and is surrounded by Natural Land Trust property. As you enter a gated courtyard youre taken to a world of sublime beauty. Quality materials and focus on meticulous detail can be appreciated by the most discerning. It was the home of artist Charles T. Coiner & his wife May. He was an Impressionist. Many of his paintings arose from the farm fields & backyard scenes of the property. Innovative graphic designer, he collaborated w/ Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali & Georgia OKeeffe. Early origins of the fieldstone house are circa 1754 but the predominant architecture is Federal style. Exterior characteristics of this period are seen in its qualities of understated, elegant proportion. Balance & symmetry and hand cut keystones over the windows provide a sense finesse & refinement. Interior features of the principal residence include antique doors, woodwork & hardware. Spacious open rooms provide a sense of clean lines, yet style & detail have not been overlooked welcoming any period of furnishings. Your eye is drawn to remarkably high ceilings on the first floor. Handsome wide pine floors throughout with an almost translucent finish catch your immediate attention. The focal point of the kitchen is a large, centrally located marble table for relaxed dining. Soapstone counters provide generous workspace, plus a wall of raised panel built-in cabinetry/closets and a sizeable antique China & storage cupboard create abundant storage. High end appliances include Wolfe, Bosch & Asko. Adjacent to the kitchen is a room designed by George Nakashima, a good friend of the Coiners & renowned wood artist of the American Craft Movement. Its Minimalist hallmarks are exposed stone walls, vertical oak paneling, expansive use of glass and cut stone floor. It overlooks an awe-inspiring specimen tree adding to its Japanese influence & captivating views. The home and its ancillary buildings have been beautifully restored. Correra marble & classic hardware appointments provide timeless elements in both the main residence & guest house. A charming stone carriage house w/ covered porch & private patio w/ attached garages is finished w/ quality amenities. The former summer kitchen overlooking a perfectly positioned pergola offers flexible space & versatility w/ its impressive exposed interior walls, cathedral ceiling and is flanked by rooms to either side w/ wrap around walls of glass & radiant heated floors. Surrounded by irrigated vegetable & rose gardens, a marvelous bank barn w/ huge hand-hewn beams is dressed to impress with a wall of espalier flowering pear and affords an opportunity for your own creativity & fancy. Massive steppingstones take you to a grove of dazzling white birches interwoven with perennials leaving you spellbound. There is a fenced area with a charming shed for goats & sheep. There is also a greenhouse adjacent to the barn. As you move through award winning, lovingly planned flora there is a seamless distinctive blend of simpatico. This extraordinary property garnered a coveted spot and was recently featured in the Private Gardens of Philadelphia, being one of the finest in its Bucks County selection. This well-planned habitat provides a panoply of changing colors & textures as we move through the seasons. Walkways and pleasant landscapes serenely complement each other and provide a place for reflection. Pleasing entertainment areas create a place to celebrate life with family & friends. Coltsfoot Farm offers a rare opportunity & a feast for the eyes! Its current owners have been exceptional stewards. Enjoy its incomparable allure!
