76 Old York Road, New Hope, PA 18938
Located in the heart of what was once called The Springdale Historic District of New Hope, this fieldstone gem, circa 1820, is a rare find in the Boro of New Hope. The timeless appeal of Bucks County style simply oozes from this home the moment you arrive at its covered front porch and continues inside from room to charming room. Thick fieldstone walls, deep sill windows sheathed in timber, exposed beams and wide board wood floors throughout create an urban farmhouse feeling beginning upfront in the living room in the oldest part of the house having exposed stone walls. Wide hallways both up and down are perfect for displaying artwork and furnishings and with the generosity of space they provide give an air of luxury. Stained glass walls decorate the entrance to the dining room where French doors open to a private covered brick terrace, one of two. The second is off the kitchen ideal for barbecues and entertaining with an artisanal handmade privacy wall that is both attractive and practical. The eat-in kitchen will please the gourmet with its suite of Wolf appliances, including a stainless hood, radiant heated floors, custom cherry cabinetry and artistic back splash with Mercer tile accents adjacent to a sitting room all opens to a wall of French doors leading the rear terrace for al fresco dining. A powder room with an exposed stone wall is nearby for guests. A stunning custom hand-forged railing on the oak staircase leads up to three bedrooms and two full bathrooms.
