Restored with quality components and a good measure of love, the "Tennant Cottage" is an antique treasure with a 5.76 acre postcard setting. Framed by a lush landscape and rolling terrain at the foot of Buckingham Mountain, this plastered stone and clapboard house retains many of the original features: fireplace, beamed ceilings, deep windowsills and pine floors. A later addition has been turned into a striking kitchen/great room with a vaulted ceiling, French doors to a brick patio and a large rear windowed dormer with built-in bookcases. Colorado alder custom cabinetry is enhanced by soapstone and marble countertops, bead board backsplash, built-in butcher block and under-mounted double ceramic sink with drainboard. Above the gas range a distinctive range hood compliments the unique cabinetry. The bar area includes wine bottle storage and a lighted glassware cabinet with artisan glass doors. Recessed LED ceiling spotlights and under-mounted and up-mounted cabinet lighting create a dramatic ambiance for evening entertaining. Adjacent to the kitchen is a full bath with tub/shower and study/bedroom with an outside entrance - ideal for a home office. At the core of the house is a sunny living room with a fireplace and an open staircase to the second floor. Two unique bedrooms share a full bath with tub/shower and a dressing area. The main bedroom has double closets and a desk area with a picture window. The first floor den/study captures a scenic view of the valley through a large bow window. At the end of the house is a laundry/project room with extensive built-in cabinetry, granite counter with under-mounted sink and pocket doors to a half bath. Doors in the den and laundry access a cozy screened porch tucked into the landscape. In addition to a garden/storage shed, a detached two car garage has an outdoor shower that services a heated pool, complete with a refrigerator in the pool house. This singular country cottage, featuring newer HVAC and a whole house generator, is ideally located between New Hope and Doylestown.
