Welcome to 1 Mercer Gate Drive, a custom designed and built home located in a private Cul-De-Sac of 7 stately homes, just one mile from the heart of Doylestown. This lovely home has four floors of living space which includes 6 bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half baths, a three-car garage, an inground pool and a stunning 1,600 bottle wine room. As an added bonus, this home is the only home in the Mercer Gate community with public water connection.
The graceful entryway opens to a two-story foyer flanked by an elegant dining room to the left with a cozy fireplace and living room/den to the right that steps down to a beautiful private study. The wood flooring has an in-laid border that adds a sophisticated detail. A butler’s pantry connects the living room/den with the family room and provides easy access to the wine refrigerator for entertaining guests. The spacious kitchen has ample custom cabinetry, a walk-in pantry, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a built-in Viking range and double oven. A large center island accommodates additional seating alongside the breakfast nook with a direct view of the hot tub, waterfall and pool. The family room features reclaimed barn wood floors and a handsome stone fireplace with French doors opening to the private backyard. Beyond the family room is a sunroom surrounded with oversized windows, 14' ceilings, and additional pool access. The powder room was renovated with wainscoting, new fixtures, a chandelier and new tile floor. The first-floor laundry room has a new cabinet/sink, granite counters, and exterior door with doggie-door access to the backyard. The mud room offers additional storage and exterior access to the front of the home and the oversized three-car garage.
Upstairs, the luxurious master suite includes a separate sitting area and a renovated bath with custom cabinetry, an oversized California shower/dual shower head and garden tub. The highlight of this suite is the dressing area with a granite top make up counter, over-sized drawers, a pull-out laundry shelf, and large His and Her walk-in closets with adjustable built-ins. Four additional large bedrooms and two more full bathrooms round out this floor. Two bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bath while the other two bedrooms share a spacious hall bath.
Continue up to the third level where you will find the sixth bedroom with another large sitting area and its own private bath with California shower and walk-in closet. This private space is perfect for out of town guests, in-laws or an au pair suite.
Finally, walk downstairs into the finished basement – an entertainer's dream! Offering more than 1,900 sq ft of continued living space, enjoy movie nights in the family room/theater area with Bose surround sound and a beautiful stone fireplace. There is plenty of room for a full-size pool table, a separate reading/library area with built-in shelving and wood flooring, and an updated powder room. The showstopper of this basement is the immaculate 1,600 bottle wine room. This beauty is a temperature and humidity-controlled wine room with custom racking, tumbled marble flooring, an antique chandelier and commercial refrigeration door. There are additional unfinished areas in the basement which includes a workshop and Bilco doors exiting to the side yard.
Outside, you will find the inground pool with elevated waterfall and hot tub. This private paradise is meticulously maintained and surrounded by professional landscaping with an irrigation system, a shed for pool/yard care storage, and many new windows and doors. For the new homeowner's piece of mind, the stucco was tested, remediated and inspected by Rob Lunny of Lunny Diagnostics.
