Description

Privacy and serenity. Exquisite architecture. Modern luxury. 1886 Aquetong Rd is a property suited for the most discerning buyer. One who seeks exceptional beauty and the innate desire to reside in a one-of-a kind art piece. The home was artistically designed and built by one of the leading innovators of 20th century furniture design, internationally acclaimed artist George Katsutoshi Nakashima. The sprawling contemporary home is enveloped by Japanese inspired rock gardens, or sekitei. Strategically placed stones and expanses of white raked gravel are vital elements to a Japanese garden and are considered the ultimate expression of beauty. The entrance hall sets the tone to amaze anyone who enters. Understated elegance, yet absolute uniqueness is created by a tasteful combination of architectural choices, such as: The stunning entrance door, a masterpiece created by George Nakashima, consisting of a huge live piece of wood surrounded by edged glass. The soaring beamed ceiling with four skylights, the original warm walnut floors, the original large Japanese inspired circular windows and a babbling indoor stone koi pond. Together with the adjoining art gallery, the foyer design is the perfect blend of architectural grandeur meets minimalism. And truly captures the peaceful essence you will experience throughout the remainder of the home. Adjacent to the gallery you will find the amazing designer powder room. The ultramodern Seimatic kitchen features deep lacquer detailing, black granite countertops and high-end appliances. Centering the kitchen and surrounding dining and living areas, you will find a customary Tokonoma tree post, which honors visitors. Multiple sets of glass doors bookend the spacious great room, providing direct access to expansive decking. Dine al fresco by the light of the elevated fire bowl, overlooking meticulous gardens and meandering stone walkways. Adjacent to the kitchen/dining room separated by two custom designed double doors you will find a small meditation room, presently used as an art studio/library. Multiple skylights and large glass doors inspire the feeling of living with nature. The primary bedroom suite with its expansive elegant marble bathroom offers peace, calm and privacy. A wall of windows and doors provide unobstructed views of the surrounding tranquil landscape. Marble tub and shower, multiple custom closets, and a mirrored dressing area complete the opulent master suite. The guest wing adjacent to the gallery hall offers two large bedrooms, featuring a uniquely beautiful bathroom, a wet bar and a small sitting room with large glass doors that open to the garden. The larger bedroom of the two features a small office area and a separate private entrance to the front yard. A professional office space, also with separate entrance, and a galley style laundry room complete the remainder of the sprawling interior. A large bonus room located above the two-car garage provides ample space for an additional office or art studio. While it may be a conversation piece through its uniqueness it simultaneously offers serenity and peace. Surrounded by forest on the back of the property as well as large trees and foliage on both sides ensuring seclusion and privacy. This spectacular country retreat is ideally located just 71 miles from New York City and 39 miles from Philadelphia. As well as mere minutes from New Hope+GGs famed Delaware River canal path where you will undoubtedly enjoy long peaceful walks or bicycle rides along the endless riverside lane. 1886 offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to own and live in a rare and extraordinary piece of artistic history. Its understated elegance is beyond compare and is widely considered to be the ultimate collector+GGs piece.
