PRIVATE SELF-CONTAINED COMPOUND. Drive through privacy gates and down a long, flowered drive to discover your own magical park hidden from view along New Hope's glamorous North Main Street. This is a very private multi-building compound~a world of dramatically restored and expanded buildings, gardens, ponds, fountains, walkways, and an enormous salt-water, heated swimming pool surrounded by brick patios that can comfortably accommodate 100 guests. Steps to the shops and restaurants of New Hope and Lambertville, this one-of-a-kind offering features an elegant 4-bedroom 5-bath Main Stone House with roots in the 19th century, a Carriage House with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, a fully-appointed Guest Cottage, and a Guest Studio - all with indulgent modern amenities you just won't find elsewhere this close to town. Whether for luxurious private guest stays, superb entertaining accommodations or simply the intimate comforts of everyday living, there's an undeniable sense of ~WOW~ both inside and out! An expansive vaulted beamed ceiling in the main home's family room complements a 2-story stone wall surrounded by windows and French doors leading to the boundless outdoor entertaining area. An 1,800 sq ft wing addition, remodeled chef's kitchen, custom built-ins, indoor/outdoor sound system, and 4-zone heating are just a few of the many improvements the current owners have undertaken during the past few years to create a harmonious blend of comfort and splendor. Custom designed landscaping with garden paths, fountains, specimen plants surround the heated saltwater swimming pool and multiple patio areas. Nothing was overlooked from the 12-zone irrigation system, the private dock on the canal, a whole property backup generator, and deer fenced, secured grounds all just steps from diverse restaurants, shops and local activities in the historic river towns of New Hope and Lambertville. Conveniently located 50 minutes north of Philadelphia and 90 minutes south of Manhattan, the location, designer interiors, thoughtfully landscaped grounds, and exceptional warmth make this truly remarkable property a must-see for anyone who demands the absolute best in lifestyle amenities!
