What was once a vintage barn in Newtown has transformed into 108 Beaumont Drive—a tranquil oasis just 45 minutes outside Philadelphia.
Original wood beams add a rustic, historic touch throughout the home
City life is not for everyone, but that doesn’t mean you must compromise on a luxurious home. Tucked in a secluded Bucks County setting awaits a 1700s converted barn with exquisite finishes, bucolic outdoor spaces and every amenity one could desire. The property was completely reimagined by Rafael Novoa and Robert Lieberman of Rafael Novoa Interior Design.
Eight fountains splash water into the pool, creating a tranquil atmosphere.
Upon arrival at Eight Bells, pass through grand wrought iron gates to find the completely renovated vintage barn surrounded by manicured gardens and lush trees. Lavender stone stairs guide visitors to the entrance where original dark wood beams wow. “Step into the realm of sheer opulence as you enter the great room and entrance hall,” says co-listing agent Caryn Black of the six-bed, four-bath property. “The ceiling soars to a height of 30 feet, seemingly reaching for celestial heights, while an abstract-monumental fi replace stands as a true masterpiece, its enigmatic allure setting the stage for unparalleled fine entertaining.”
Natural light pours into the home from every angle, including the entryway.
Soirées are sure to end in the warm, elegant great room where a cement Rumford fireplace beckons and natural light pours through floorto- ceiling windows. To explore the gourmet kitchen, glide across the home’s radiant heated floors. Cream cabinetry juxtaposes a beam running above the center island, while a neutral-tiled backsplash features floral details. Completing the main floor is the cozy primary suite boasting a custom dressing room with illuminated cabinetry and German mixed metal pulls. On the second level, find two guest suites. A new full bathroom is sure to make visitors feel at home with a Lefroy Brooks pedestal sink, as well as exquisite Carrara and Calacatta herringbone marble walls and floors. For more privacy or an Aupair quarters, the guest apartment welcomes visitors with a private elevator entrance, a full marble mosaicfloored bathroom, a living room with a gas fireplace, JennAir appliances and a balcony overlooking the gardens.
The property especially dazzles during the warmer months when a pool, gardens and patio offer luxury outdoor living.
Whether you opt for a dip in the dark gray gunite pool surrounded by eight fountain heads, a peaceful moment by the koi pond or a game on the tennis/pickleball court, every moment outside will be a treat. Finish the day with alfresco dining on the bluestone patio, cooked in the new outdoor kitchen with a built-in grill. $4,350,000, 108 Beaumont Drive, Newtown, Caryn Black and Brooke Black, 267.614.6484 and 267.893.0625, bielloandblack.com
