This Countryside Retreat is the Best Place for a Staycation

By Carissa Dunlap | September 18, 2019 | Home & Real Estate

Rustic features and contemporary details make this Doylestown home a welcoming retreat.


There’s nothing quite like living in a home filled with charm—especially one that embodies an old soul and is located in the center of the small and historic area of Doylestown. This roughly $2.44 million home, located at 5411 Carversville Road, was built in 2009 by Wolstenholme Associates, who utilized reclaimed wood of an antiquated local barn about a mile away from the four-bed, five full- and one half-bath home. “A reclaimed barn is unique in itself, but what makes this property spectacular is the cohesion of contemporary upgrades in a bucolic setting,” says Kristin McFeely, Realtor and team principal for the Philadelphia Home Collective, a team of Greater Philadelphia Realtors under real estate company Compass. Modern updates can be found in the architectural planning of the 6,330-square-foot space, along with a new geothermal heating and cooling system. The design firm maintained the beautiful craftsmanship throughout the property with exposed beams and stone walls, cathedral-like ceilings, sliding barn doors and farmhouse-style light fixtures.


The interior features wide-paneled wood and concrete flooring, with access to the upstairs in the form of a stainless steel staircase and an elevator in the silo. On the second floor, a catwalk with a built-in mahogany bookcase leads you to a grand master suite—complete with a spalike master bath that features Waterwork fixtures and a conch-style shower dressed up in multicolored mosaic tiles. Two ensuite bedrooms and an entertainment room also live on the same level. Just off the main suite is a balcony fit for at-home relaxation with a built-in fire pit that overlooks the lush gardens, heated pool, and patio below. The house is chock-full of other eye-catching features, including the gourmet kitchen—decked out with stainless steel Wolf appliances, beveled navy custom cabinets, a Venetian backsplash, and a six-burner gas range. Head out through the kitchen’s floor-to-ceiling glass-paneled doors to the patio for poolside grilling and dining alfresco. There, you can’t miss the breathtaking 11-acre views. 267.289.2693,
