A unique home, like something out of a storybook, is available via this one-of-a-kind Doylestown home. It took two architects to create the desired impression of a castle, but the inside, with its six bedrooms and 5.5 baths, is nonetheless warm and inviting.

The idyllic property provided a retreat for the original 1950s owners, as they sought to escape the hurly-burly of nearby Philadelphia.

.

.

The grounds are arboretum-like, which is understandable, considering one of the former owners was a botanist. The lawns look as if a polite game of croquet could begin at any moment.

.

.

The entry features a stunning tiled floor and plenty of spaciousness to welcome guests.

.

.

The impressive tiling changes patterns and uses a warmer color palette as it leads visitors to the living room.

.

.

A separate sitting room features a wall of windows that in spring, permits views of the abundant colorful flora and in fall, allows the blaze of autumn leaves to be appreciated daily.

.

.

The kitchen is both functional and fancy. The beamed ceiling has an unusual but eye-catching design.

.

.

.

The master bedroom is quietly elegant, an apt setting for restful sleep. The upstairs rooms can be designated in various ways, such as an impressive home office with built-in shelving that adds a professional businessperson background to online meetings.

.

.

One of the most compelling selling points to this home, however, is the 16-acre lot. It has been artistically landscaped and meticulously maintained. A secluded gazebo provides shade in which a summer afternoon can be truly enjoyed in peace.

.

,

The secluded pool is an oasis. The property’s carriage-house-style garage has room for three cars and includes a wash bay. Above it is a nicely appointed one-bedroom apartment.

.

.

This one-of-a-kind home at 6166 Stovers Mill Rd, Doylestown lists for $4,550,000.
