There are but a few estate properties in Bucks County that have a presence and setting comparable to Seven Pines. On 30 unrestricted acres in Solebury Township, its stone manor house, party barn and other dependencies are set far off the road behind a gated entrance. With a canopy of towering trees and acres of rolling lawn creating a country-club setting, a sense of tranquility washes over you. Known locally as the "Perrier estate" because of its prior ownership by heirs to the French-English mineral-water empire, the property has been an epicenter of fine living, designed for entertaining on a grand scale with expansive interiors, formal gardens, a pool and the party barn, plus guest and staff accommodations. The main residence's tromp l'oeil interiors recall its past, European-inspired life. Its reception foyer, grand-salon living room, formal dining room and library feature high ceilings and character to spare. The home's modern chef's kitchen, with a full suite of professional Viking, Miele and Sub-Zero appliances, a large island and a wealth of storage, is a culinary masterpiece. It includes a casual dining area, adjacent mudroom entry and laundry room, the everyday spaces everyone needs. Private quarters are on the second floor with one half devoted to an enormous owner's suite and the other to 3 secondary bedrooms. A second-floor landing library with access to a large deck divides the two sections. The owner's suite offers an enormous, sun-filled, cathedral-ceiling bedroom, dressing room and five-piece bath. The secondary bedrooms are served by two full baths. Outside, the estate's expansive grounds envelop you in privacy. Stone patios offer views of gently rolling terrain, a stream-fed pond and wooded acreage. An oversized inground pool, set away from the house and absolutely perfect for summer soirees, is served by two cabanas, one with a kitchenette. The party barn is a dramatic entertainment space, fully equipped with a large kitchen, three full baths and space for your dreams - art gallery, gym, yoga studio, stunning residence - the views from the upper loft are breathtaking. There is a 2/3-bedroom carriage house, a separate 2-bedroom guest house and vast finished living spaces attached to the barn that can serve as guest or caretaker accommodations. For those with hobby farm interests, three acres are fenced for horses or other farm animals. Collectors can stash cars or other toys in the oversized garages. With its superb location set amid some of Bucks County's most precious estates, Seven Pines is a unique opportunity to own a piece of history while creating a world of your own, perhaps centered on its grand-scale manor house or perhaps with the creation of a new primary residence on one of the three 10-acre parcels that make up the 30 acres. Become the next steward of Seven Pines and bring out the best in this magnificent private retreat.
