The home at 961 West Thatcher Road, Quakertown, may have started as a 1700s simple log cabin, but after its recent eight-year renovation — which had architects actually nest that original dwelling into the new footprint — it’s anything but spartan.

The property has the seven-bedroom, six-and-a-half bath home, plus grounds with three ponds, a heated pool/spa, a pool house, a separate onsite cottage, and detached garage. All of this comes on a massive, four-acre plot.

.

.

The two jewels of this home are the kitchen, where much of a former barn has been given new life, and a two-story great room.

The kitchen’s impressiveness has caught the eye of local architectural magazine editors, who happily profiled it in their publications. And yes, that’s an indoor swing hanging from a rafter. What better way for kids — or adults, for that matter — to spend time waiting for brownies to finish baking?

.

.

The adjacent great room has two large seating areas with a wood burning fireplace and multiple French doors to the rear terrace.

.

,

.

The open dining room accommodates large dining parties with lots of light and easy outside access. This entertaining space flows into the living room and the handsome expansive library and office. Exposed beams and architectural lighting abound.

.

.

The first floor master with custom concrete fireplace and has French doors to the outside rear terrace. The sumptuous main bath with incredible soaking tub also has a huge picture window.

.

.

Upstairs are three additional bedrooms and two full baths.

.

.

The third floor is an incredible finished bonus room perfect for exercise equipment or as it’s currently being used, extra guest space.

.

.

Outside is a beautifully landscaped, serene pool/spa, where mature trees provide a retreat from the summer sun whether residents are swimming or just lounging.

Fans of the great outdoors will also be interested in this perk: The home is minutes away from Nockamixon State Park, which provides year-round opportunities for boating, sailing, sailboarding, windsurfing, horseback riding, hiking, and biking.

.

.

This one-of-a-kind home lists for $4,445,000.
