I'm still trying to decide which room has the most Breathtaking view of the River - it's a tough choice. You have to see for yourself in this Unique Villa Style home, a stately and elegant look that you would see on the hillsides of Tuscany or Florence. This 4000 sq ft, 4 bedroom, 3 and one-half bath home, sits up on a hill with reinforced ground in Lower Makefield Township (Yardley) and has been gutted down to the studs in 2007 and rebuilt with the utmost attention to detail of todays' amenities while keeping the classic look it was originally given in the 1920's. Make your way up the bluestone steps and enter into the side veranda where you can sit and enjoy sunsets and river views before you enter the home. Inside the home you will find Brazilian Cherry wood flooring, 9' ceilings, and sun peering thru the classic archways at each direction that you turn. The flowing 360 degree floor plan goes from one spacious room to another . The Expansive Gourmet Kitchen with large Island has the dream counter space and storage as well as a pantry and Kitchen space is open enough to have a flexible use as an eat-in area or cozy love seat and chairs for your morning coffee and reading. Or, venture out the sliding doors to the elevated deck over-looking the rear yard and tree tops. Cross the deck you can then enter the Sun Room, another great relaxing room, with views of trees and the Glorious River. There are River Views from here, thru the Family Room with wood burning fireplace, and in the Formal Living Room with its own wood burning fireplace (original to the home), but all your attention will be to outside blue peace of water. Upstairs you will find 4 bedrooms. The Master suite has sitting area, two closets, master bathroom with heated floors, large walk-in shower, deep soaking tub and views. The Guest Suite has its own sitting area, full bath with tub/shower combo, walk-in closet and views. The next two bedrooms share a roof top deck, a hall bath, and again.....breathtaking views.... While most of your tour through the home will be distracted by the River, know that all the windows have been replaced with top-of-the-line Pella architectural style, pluming is Pex and PVC, all electrical updated with two interior panels, three zone heating and cooling with high velocity forced air, exterior siding was stripped down and all replaced, home was elevated and secured on a deep bed of stone and steel beams, garage is over-sized with a drive thru door that open for easy boat work or to entertain on the lower level patio. The rest of the lower level is currently a dream workshop that can converted to a multiple of uses. This incredible residence sits on 1.75 deeded acres of land with home elevated above the flood level for nominal flood insurance. There are two tax parcels, one being the lot with Riparian Rights and a lot that sits low enough to easily hook up the floating dock and launch a fishing boat off or canoe/kayak or even jump in for a swim. There is electric down by the water to power up the motor boat or power lights for the party you can hold on this area. You can also enjoy an area in the rear of the property that is across a bridged creek. From this you can make a short trail thru the woods to gain access to the Historic Delaware Tow Path. There is so many incredible features both inside and out of this one-of-a-kind Classic Beauties! ..........Which View did you choose?
