Welcome to "Catawba", a very special property that has it all! Enter through a fob controlled electric gate and the winding driveway goes over a creek and then reveals the picturesque Cape Cod house with wraparound porch. A tranquil setting in a great location convenient to Doylestown and New Hope, it has privacy, a large deck, patio, heated saltwater pool (easier to maintain), 3 acres and a GREAT house with first floor master bedroom. From the front porch step into a wide, welcoming foyer and immediately notice the stunning mixed wood flooring that combines cherry, oak and pine. Generously sized rooms, wonderful floor plan, gleaming 6-panel solid wood doors, lots of closets and storage provide the gracious and comfortable ambiance of this home. Many windows bring in natural light and views of the changing seasons. Living room has wood burning stone fireplace and side door to porch. Adjoining light-filled dining room features a bay window and recessed lighting. Large, well planned kitchen has custom cabinetry with soft close, full extension drawers. Mosaic glass backsplash is the perfect complement to the expansive Quartz countertops and wide peninsula with seating. GE Caf~ SS appliances, pantry closet, wine refrigerator, open shelving and a deep sink beneath a double window overlooking the backyard. Transition area between kitchen and family room has laundry closet with colorful mosaic tile floor installed by an artist previous owner. Down the hall from the kitchen to the front door are a powder room and 3 closets, one with built-ins for extra clothing! Heart of this home is the enormous family room with vaulted wood ceiling, two skylights, ceiling fan, wood burning stove and windows on every wall. It~s perfect for large gatherings and also the place in which you will want to relax, play and reflect. Your calming retreat is the main bedroom and bath. Spacious and away from everything else, it is a large room with many windows, ceiling fan, door to private covered porch, two closets, one a walk-in, and a bathroom with mosaic marble floor, subway tile tub/shower and Kohler fixtures. The staircase design is an architectural feature and brings you up to a hall with seating area, extra closet, linen closet and two large bedrooms, each w/two closets, flanking a large bathroom with tiled shower and floor.

Exterior features are as distinct and beautiful as those inside and complete the year-round specialness of this extraordinary property. From the kitchen, French doors lead to the deck with a retractable electric awning. Step down to the patio with flowering Dogwood. In the language of the Native American Catawba tribe, the word means ~people by the river~ and it is also the name of a spectacular flowering tree. Not native to Bucks County, a large one grows by the pool and is the focal part of the backyard in summer. You will appreciate the maintenance free stamped concrete walkways and pool surround, a Trex front porch, the stone firepit w/hand hewn log benches, enclosed outdoor shower, outdoor speakers, storage shed, split rail fencing, whole house Generac propane generator and occasional visits from a neighbors peacocks.
