What do you do if you crave the serenity of a starry night filled with the peaceful percussion of cricket and peeper song or a sunny day relaxing on the patio surrounded by an acre of lush lawn enjoying the farmland views? You move to rural Bucks County of course. But what if your heart has always longed for a Chelsea loft with tall ceilings, spacious rooms full of natural light, the raw beauty of textured surfaces and a sleekly sophisticated quasi-industrial vibe? Well then there is only one choice – The Pants Factory in Bedminster township. The current owner has painstakingly updated this former factory building, built in 1920, to a new life as modern residence. The looms may be gone but the exposed stone, eleven foot ceilings, 7’x4’ replacement windows and maple wood floors remain. Both the main floor and lower level, totaling roughly 7000 square feet, are primarily open with 4-5 bedrooms and three full baths as the current configuration. All the bedrooms have full walls for sound and privacy. On the main floor the wonderful kitchen is completely open to the great room. You would think this much space would be cavernous but the combination of wood floors, plaster walls, chandeliers, architectural columns and partially wood clad ceilings all combine for a surprisingly cozy space. One can imagine the largest of dinner parties around a huge dining table as easily as a quiet chess game snuggled up next to the propane fireplace. There is central air for the summer and radiant heat throughout the entire main floor for the winter. Next to the kitchen is the office featuring built-ins and steps up to the French doors leading to the spacious deck. This is one of the rooms that could easily be pressed into service as an extra bedroom. Back in the hallway look straight up to the cupola and skylight! The original factory doors now have barn-door style installation and, as each of the doors is unique, so are the bedrooms. The primary bedroom has crown molding, two 6x9’ walk-in closets, a lovely halogen fireplace and a fabulous ensuite bath with freestanding jetted tub and a glass walled shower that’s big enough to invite friends. Each of the remaining bedrooms has a distinctive feature but they are all spacious. The second full bath has a stunning exposed black stone wall, glass enclosed shower, a stone floor and a stone sink! The lower level is currently set up as multiple seating areas, a bonus room that could be a bedroom or second office and a large open room accessed by two sets of stained glass French doors. Exposed stone, plaster walls, glossy concrete floors and long walls of individual windows means these rooms can be whatever you can imagine. If you would like to have a business in your home this lower level is ideal. If you would like more of a residential use like: playroom, fitness room, media room, arcade, dance, yoga – you dream it- this space can hold it. In addition to all this there is a one car garage with glass door that is currently used as a workshop. There is also a main floor laundry, third full bath, utility room and much more. The interior can be accessed either up the grand stone steps to the huge double doors or along the side to the lower level vestibule. If using the lower level for au pair, in-law or business this separate entry to each of the floors is ideal. The lot is almost an acre of lawn with views of 25 acres of farmland. This unique home is a singular opportunity to enjoy all of the serenity of the country without giving up any the urban style of the city. There’s not another one like it! 90 Minutes to NYC and Philly and midway between Routes 611 and 413 makes this home the perfect choice for vacation home or full time living.
