8 Stillmeadow Lane is situated atop one of Willistown Township's rolling open hillsides. With vistas and protected view sheds, the property also sits on a private dead end lane. This exceptional setting was inspirational in the selection of a most discerning team of architects, builders and landscape designers. The current owner has enhanced the original vision by expanding the once small kitchen into a more modern, eat-in floor plan, using plenty of glass to bring the outdoors in. The property was elected Home of the Year by Custom Home magazine when originally built in 1992. The use of copper roofing, stone exterior, flagstone and brick patios in multiple courtyards, and balconies at elevation, is a testament that this home was built to last in a timeless location. Many interior features include reclaimed hardwood and a rustic but modern use of steel. The most spectacular craftsmanship is used throughout, but perhaps it is most well demonstrated through the barrel-vaulted great room with a 15 foot ceiling, recreated barn ruins gable end with massive fireplace. This room has French doors on the west and east which can create an open-air passage from the central flagstone courtyard to the more casual fire pit, grill area and back lawn. It is also open to the dining area and kitchen with two islands. Perfect for entertaining!Overall the property boasts 5 bedrooms, 4 full and 3 half baths over approximately 7,000 square feet*, and pool with equally spectacular pool house. The bedroom configuration ensures privacy for family and guests with a first floor master suite, 2 mirror-image 2 story bedrooms each with sitting rooms, and a bedroom on the west end, en-suite with enchanting tower sitting room with views. The 5th bedroom is part of a separate but attached section of the house including an in-law suite with magnificent views, 3 car garage and private yet expansive upstairs office. The next owner will surely enjoy this amazing, unique and whimsical offering.The land consists of just over 10 acres in two connected but separate pieces, 5 acres +/- of which is vacant land under conservation easement, which allows for a future 4 stall barn to be built should an equestrian use be desired.
