Perched at the very edge of a rock bluff high above the Paunacussing Creek sits this iconic mid-century modern stone and glass Solebury residence. Built in the early 1950's and designed by Philadelphia architect, Morris J. Rosenthal, this Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home has recently undergone a complete and painstaking renovation using the finest materials and artisans available. The original architectural blueprints and old photos were instrumental in guiding the project and no detail was overlooked in maintaining the original integrity. The result is a breathtaking, modern masterpiece taking full advantage of this spectacular 9 acre setting with 180-degree cliff-top views looking out over the rushing stream and verdant woodlands. Present day luxury is evident in every room. The chefs kitchen features custom maple cabinetry, all top of the line stainless steel appliances including a Subzero refrigerator, an eight burner, double oven gas Wolf range, a wine cooler and radiant floors. The living room is anchored by a dramatic original curvilinear stone wall with fireplace and original slate floors and walls of glass opening to an extensive stone patio wrapping around the entire back of the home. The open floor plan in this area includes a formal dining room also with slate floors and sensational views with sliding glass doors on to the patio for al fresco dining. A hallway leads to the master bedroom which is a mirror image of the living room with a curvilinear stone wall and wood burning fireplace. The original polished concrete floors add a dramatic mid-century feel. The master bath features Blue Lagos radiant heated floors, a dramatic semi-circle vanity and a sumptuous glass and stone shower. A custom Nakashima inspired bar dominates the hallway with a powder room leading to a light filled den with polished concrete floors. Two additional en suite bedrooms, a large laundry room and utility room complete the living spaces. A long winding newly paved driveway entering thru custom iron electronic gates meanders over the original 1948 steel and stone bridge, culminating at an ample sized crushed stone motor court and detached two garage with workshop and electric vehicle home charging outlet. Security cameras discretely survey the property. Fully integrated WIFI system controls Sonos music, security and HVAC. A new septic system is over-sized and would allow for an additional legal accessory dwelling on the property. Beautiful slate walk ways and extensive new landscaping invite guests to wander with a glass of wine or relax in the hammock. This property offers the discerning buyer the degree of privacy and protection, along with low maintenance often sought, but rarely found within a 90 minute drive to NYC or an hours commute to Philadelphia. The Princeton Airport is less than a 45 minute drive.
