Introducing Shaggy Bark Farm, an extraordinary farmhouse boasting modern renovations and unrivaled charm. Nestled within gated grounds under 24-hour surveillance, this sanctuary offers unparalleled privacy amidst nature's splendor, featuring cascading ponds and landscaped gardens. Originally erected in the 1700s as a humble log cabin, this residence has undergone breathtaking transformations, culminating in a harmonious blend of rustic allure and contemporary elegance. The heart of the home resides within its expansive kitchen and soaring two-story great room. A barn, meticulously dismantled and strategically repositioned, lends its historic essence to the residence, infusing it with timeless character. The custom-designed kitchen, a focal point highlighted in various publications, showcases "Plain & Fancy" cabinetry and locally crafted accents, complemented by handpicked marble countertops and top-of-the-line appliances, including a Subzero refrigerator with glass doors and a Wolf Commercial Range. Flowing seamlessly from the kitchen, the great room welcomes with its wood-burning fireplace and multiple French doors leading to a rear terrace, ideal for lavish entertaining. Adjacent, the open dining area invites gatherings bathed in natural light, effortlessly connecting to the living room and a distinguished library and office space adorned with exposed beams and architectural lighting. The original log cabin, seamlessly integrated, guides the way to a loft bedroom suite, while the first-floor master suite boasts a custom concrete fireplace and French doors opening to the terrace. The luxurious main bathroom, featuring an indulgent infinite-edge soaking tub and expansive picture window, ensures a constant connection to the breathtaking surroundings. Ascending to the upper levels reveals three additional bedrooms, two full baths, and an extraordinary finished bonus room, offering versatility as a workout space or additional guest accommodation. Outside, the sprawling grounds beckon with three picturesque ponds, a heated pool, spa, and charming , newly-renovated pool house. Property also includes a newer Generac whole-house generator. Across the property lies a separate cottage/guest house, complete with a full kitchen, bedroom, bath, and cozy living space with a fireplace, complemented by a new rear patio for added seclusion. A detached garage features a remarkable home office above, doubling as guest quarters for added convenience. Seller recently expanded the estate by nearly four acres of cleared grounds, offering ample space for recreational activities, weddings, or family gatherings, with the added convenience of room for a helipad. Seller has hosted a beautiful 450-guest wedding on the property. RP Zoning allows for a Bed and Breakfast use. Conveniently located minutes from Lake Nockamixon State Park, owners enjoy access to a myriad of outdoor activities, from boating and sailing to horseback riding and hiking trails. With Lehigh Valley Airport just 35 minutes away and Philadelphia within reach in a little over an hour, Shaggy Bark Farm offers an unparalleled lifestyle of luxury and convenience.
