A rare opportunity for your own slice of heaven in the sought-after river town of New Hope! The perfect marriage of old and new - this 1820s home is tucked away in one of the quieter quarters in town. The home features many of the historically older characteristics so popular today but with all the updated conveniences necessary for modern living. For many years New Hope and Bucks County were destinations for artists, actors, writers, entertainers, and home to all sorts of interesting people which gives the locale a unique, unparalleled charm. Together with the natural beauty of the area including the historic Delaware River, this location remains one of the more popular destinations in the Tri-State area. Attracting people tired of the hustle and bustle of big cities and looking for some green open space, the Bucks County experience combines both peace and quiet with quick access to the everyday amenities and conveniences of day-to-day life. Enter this three-bedroom home through your private patio - a perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee with a friend or a moment to read the Sunday Times. Relax and donât do anything at all except lazily watch the quiet town life slowly pass by from a sweet spot - your front patio. Hardwood floors follow throughout the home after you enter into an informal living/dining room. An updated eat-in kitchen sits just steps away with stainless steel appliances, soapstone countertops, a steel sink, backsplash, and accent wood wall. The original pantry still remains. New to the kitchen is a heated sunroom, currently used as a playroom but could easily be repurposed as an office, dining room, yoga room, or anything that your heart desires. The sunroom has views of your private, fenced-in backyard - a perfect spot for summer barbecues for family and friends. The first-floor powder room is next to the stairs leading up to the second floor offering a lovely main bedroom suite with a luxurious recently added full bath with a marble countertop, new sink, couples shower, and two newly added closets. Two additional bedrooms share another full hall bath. The third-floor attic is finished with hardwood floors and is currently used as a family/media room. The twin towns of New Hope and Lambertville offer everything from fabulous shopping, art galleries, antique stores, award-winning restaurants, and the historically famous Bucks County Playhouse. If you like the outdoors, this area offers something for everyone - fishing, biking, kayaking, running, hiking, and if you are very adventurous - even a day of tubing down the river. The home is just minutes from the towpath offering miles and miles of scenic paths along the canal and river. This is a great home for either a full-time resident or a weekender. Commuters can take the bus right to Manhattan and you are never far from all the major Northeast roadways - either south towards Philadelphia (50 min) or North towards Manhattan (90 min). Trains are also another travel option with the Princeton, Hamilton, and Trenton train stations not far away.
