Quintessential Pointed Stone Home in Solebury Township holds all of the charm and architectural integrity of its early origins in 1800. From the front, fenced English garden entrance to the private backyard mecca of lovely, established perennial plantings, you will walk through the sweet floral arbor, and feel as if you are stepping into a secret garden retreat with its very deep, sprawling lawn abutting the canal and just beyond, the magnificent Delaware River. Today, the canals are a lazy reminder of days gone by of mule barges carrying goods to local merchants, set in beautiful surroundings. Ride your bike or walk along the canal and stop in New Hope, Lambertville, and many other fine towns along this scenic canal route. You won't be disappointed by the numerous shops and restaurants from which to choose. Return home to a cozy living room with wood burning fireplace and choose a classic book from the elegant built-in bookshelves that will accommodate an ample literary collection. And wide-plank pumpkin pine floors gleam in the sunlight of the first and second floors. Second floor is perfect for guests to retire to one of two bedrooms with a shared full bath while the owner's suite is a completely private third floor bedroom with updated bath. Stretch out in the morning and take in the third floor river vews as you perch among the treetops. Breakfast may be served in the updated kitchen or a first cup of coffee enjoyed with the Sunday paper in the sweet sitting/family room or immediately outdoors on the deck. This home is a wonderful find in the quaint village of Centre Bridge. Convenient to PA and NJ thoroughfares, the location offers a classic country lifestyle with accessibility to many transportation options for Philadelphia and New York commuters. Property is located in the award-winning New Hope-Solebury School District. New cedar shingle roof (2019)
