Notable for its rarity, pedigree and quality, this Jules Gregory-designed, mid-century modern residence is like no other home in Bucks County. With more than a passing resemblance to the “Swiss Miss” A-frame houses of Palm Springs, this 1958 brick and glass house is a pioneering design for New Hope, exciting and dramatic, sophisticated and serene. Wrapped in glass and overlooking hundreds of acres of preserved Buckingham Township farmland, this residence has undergone a careful expansion and 360-degree renovation overseen by professional designers.
The designers integrated quality fixtures and finishes along with incredibly smart space planning. Strikingly white with gloss-black hardwood floors, the interiors exude clean simplicity. An open floor plan prevails in the original core of the house with rooms designated by seating areas, a fireplace, lighting and a wet bar with custom cabinetry, all under a vaulted ceiling with a wall of glass. The kitchen includes a 15.5′ island, custom cabinetry, a polished stainless steel ventilation hood and Quartz countertops finished with waterfall edges. The kitchen is open to the family room, yet another carefully considered space lined in windows, welcoming with generous seating, a fireplace, custom shelving and an office area with custom desks that blend perfectly with the home’s aesthetic.
True to one of mid-century modernism’s core ideas, all of these rooms access a rear patio. There, a bar, barbecue area, built-in fire pit and plenty of seating here and by the pool accommodate warm-weather gatherings. Private guest quarters include two ensuite bedrooms at one end of the house, both with all-new Quartz and marble bathrooms, walk-in closets and other amenities. The main bedroom suite is designed to be closed off from the more public areas of the house. Soak in the tub while taking in a stunning country view. There is an oversized walk-in shower finished in bookmatched Quartz slabs and a dressing room and closet the size of a small boutique. The bedroom itself accesses the rear patio and so enjoys the prized view. Power drapes here and in all of the bedrooms create total darkness and privacy. Created by designers for designers, this Modernist gem overwhelms with a long list of amenities best experienced in person.
