Welcome to Cardiff Lodge! This unique property, located on 3.23 lush acres along one of the most scenic country roads in Solebury, is rich in history. A perfect multi-generational home. Originally built with unparalleled craftsmanship by a prominent Philadelphia family as a private lodge, this incredible house is a wonderful example of Tudor-style architecture. The home has a European feel even as it incorporates many distinctive, thoroughly American, artistic features and decorations. Among these are custom-designed Mercer Tile baths and a fireplace in the huge Great Room that depicts the Saga of Rip Van Winkle and the story of the Cadwalader family. The banquet-sized formal dining room has a mural painted by John J. DeVlieger that depicts Paxson farm, Fonthill Castle, and the Quarry on the east side of the Delaware River at Bowman's farm. This charming home has a warm, welcoming atmosphere and interesting, whimsical details greet you at every turn. The home was significantly expanded to nearly 5,000 square feet in keeping with the original architectural style but making the entire home more functional for modern living. The current owner added an enormous barn designed to match the house. The barn/garage easily holds 6 to 8 cars and will impress even the most discerning collector or hobbyist. Perfect for a work shop as well, this large outbuilding has many possible uses. This must-see property is in a great location 3 miles from downtown New Hope, a short drive to Peddler’s Village, a 5-minute walk to the canal and towpath and convenient to shopping, restaurants and entertainment. TRULY ONE OF A KIND HOME!
