More About This House
A nature lover's dream within easy commuting distance to New York City, Princeton and Philadelphia. If you yearn to be in a beautiful part of Bucks County, then this restored, early frame and stone house is the perfect choice. The property has direct access to the Delaware River and the 58.89-mile-long towpath trail at the Tinicum Creek Aqueduct. It is a bird lover's paradise with Cardinals, Flickers, Baltimore Orioles, variety of Woodpeckers, Bald Eagles, Red Tailed Hawks and many more that you can watch from your enclosed porch and/or your blue stone terraces throughout the year. The 3-bedroom Colonial house and property were restored in 2009 but still retain the charm of its 18th century details including stone fireplaces, exposed beams, random pine and oak floors and many of the original moldings, doors, windows and wooden pie turn staircase. The home was expanded, remodeled and upgraded to include the addition of a Master bedroom with balcony, Master bath, additional closets in each bedroom, second floor laundry room, first floor powder room, central air and on demand generator. The kitchen has a sky-lighted cathedral ceiling, plenty of counter space and a separate breakfast room to please any professional or want-to-be chef. On the main floor, there are an additional four rooms that can be used as a living room, dining room, office, library, guest room, den, etc. The current owner is an accomplished Stone Mason who restored four fireplaces to their original beauty, rebuilt the stone walls and added bluestone terraces along with natural stone landscaping. There is a 2-car garage, heated in-ground natural stone swimming pool and spa with a built-in fountain and a cottage for in-laws, guests or rental income. The 1760's red Barn has electric, water and septic allowing it to be renovated into much more than a storage area. The 5.39-acre Delaware River front property is along the Delaware River, Tinicum Creek and the Delaware Canal. The property's buildings are not in a flood zone. Flood insurance is not needed or required.
