Happening Homes: The House at Leeside Farms

2

Designed by renowned architect J. Robert Hillier, this striking minimalist residence (c.2004) commands east, west, and north views of the Delaware River.

Built into a bluff overlooking the river, organic elements such as a partial sod roof planted with meadow grasses and stone quarried on-site blend the building with its surroundings.

Through the arrival court, shaded by a cantilevered canopy, a cylindrical greeting room establishes the meticulous aesthetic defining the home. Curved zinc walls and a dramatic skylight offer sculptural appeal and complement the Winchester black slate fireplace.

Floor-to-ceiling glass windows anchor the public spaces, affording a seamless connection to the panoramic vistas. Hand-selected limestone floors, warmed by radiant heat, flow from the living room into the dining room and continue throughout.

In the kitchen, a circular counter of honed granite and light-toned English sycamore cabinetry impart a calming sensibility. The master suite comprises an entire wing of the home and boasts a lap pool framed by a sloping zinc roof, a sky lit gallery and dressing area, an office, a sitting area with a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, and an exquisite bathroom.

Pocket doors from the living pavilion access a two-room guest suite. This private Solebury Twp. retreat is minutes from New Hope and an easy commute to both NYC and Philadelphia.
