Have you ever been to Narnia, or crossed a bridge to Terabithia? Neither have we, but we have a close approximation. Welcome to Carversville. The Iron Bridge of Old Carversville Rd forks with Fleecydale Rd. A beautiful confluence (of roads) split by a creek that flows to the Delaware. An easy walk, jog or bike to the Black Bass or Lumberville General Store on two of the nicest roads in Bucks County. Easy access to the PA or NJ canal tow paths. The home speaks for itself with its antique details: tall sash windows, original built-ins, two wood-burning fireplaces and pumpkin pine floors. The first floor has been opened to become a welcoming house for family living and entertaining with great flow from kitchen to patio. At its heart, it's a simple country house updated with a new kitchen where a radiant slab of black walnut flows into a pro-grade range. A mudroom and full bath were added on the first floor for convenience. Three bedrooms, each with ample closet space, and a full bath are on the second floor. Updated electric, plumbing, and septic. Steps from the Max Hansen Grocery/General Store, purveyor of fine prepared foods, and all the basics you need to feed surprise guests, or fine dining and a cocktail at the Carversville Inn. If you prefer mincing your own garlic, shop for fresh produce and meats on Saturdays from the Carversville Farm Foundation in the village square and make full use of your beautiful kitchen. And when you're ready to work off those calories, Carversville offers a host of activities just steps away. Take an easy jog down scenic Fleecydale Road. Bike the canal towpaths on the PA and NJ sides of the Delaware. Take the dogs for a walk across that iron bridge for a stroll up Old Carversville Road to Tinsman's Lumber if you are the creative type. Philadelphia is approximately 45 minutes by car and New York City is about 90 minutes. Pay a visit and see for yourself why weekenders and full-time residents love where they live in this little village.
