Description of 360 Covered Bridge Rd New Hope, PA 18938
Seeking the road less traveled, with privacy, peace, and quiet? Look no further. Beautiful 35 acres in the heart of New Hope/Solebury - this property is set back on one of the most tranquil, sought-after roads in the area. The home is located just minutes from the towns of Lambertville and New Hope with the Historic Delaware River running between them. The property is perfect for the discerning buyer weary of the big city noise and stress who seeks something different - perhaps a lifestyle change where fresh air, green grass, peace, and privacy prevail. Enjoy the tranquility of this property with its nature trails rambling through the woods, ducks splashing in the pond, and your own personal waterfall. Views of open fields with an occasional bald eagle quietly cruising high above will make it hard to believe that you are just a short ride away from downtown New Hope. The long tree-lined driveway leads you to the home discreetly tucked away from views from the road. Beautiful warm hardwood floors greet you upon entering, and you will immediately be surrounded by walls of windows overlooking the lush gardens with mature trees and flowering bushes outside. The two-story great room is flanked by a breath-taking wall of exposed stone and a large wood-burning fireplace - a perfect spot for those cold winter nights watching one of our famous Bucks County snowfalls and the occasional deer strolling across the fresh, white landscape. Curl up with your latest read in the cozy reading/sitting room adjacent to the great room. The large dining room is enclosed on three sides by windows almost giving a feeling of dining al fresco. The gourmet kitchen is expansive and would please the most advanced chef with enough room to prepare a whole family feast or just a small intimate candlelit dinner for two. You can also choose to sit by the counter as this room features beautiful soapstone countertops, high-end appliances, and beautiful custom wooden cabinets. There is also a big breakfast room. The laundry room area is conveniently located next to the kitchen. A few steps down from the kitchen is the spacious family/media room with a small office nook and sliding glass doors leading out to one of the patios. There is a large bedroom suite on the main floor with a full bath, walk-in closet, sliding glass door to your private patio, and an office/sitting/reading room. The second story solo suite is located at the other end of the home and has access without having to go through the house - a good spot for live-in help or a nanny perhaps. There are also three additional spacious bedrooms on the second floor. In almost any weather, enjoy the luxurious hot tub and when the summer brings its warm weather and all of its splendor - you have the fun and privacy of the lovely in-ground pool. There is a large three-car garage with about 1000 square feet of finished space above, currently used as an office but easily converted to fit your personal needs. Just around the corner, you find the newly installed vegetable patch and a small building that could easily house some friendly chickens. The fenced-in pastures will lead you to a beautifully constructed barn, built by the current owner not too long ago. It is home to four horses with room for additional horses or any other four-legged friends. This property has tons of potential, privacy, and beauty - easily able to be reconfigured and redesigned to suit your preferences and needs. The location offers everything you need for everyday life nearby, including local theatre companies, art galleries, post office, grocery stores, antique stores, auction houses, museums, and of course award-winning restaurants and schools. Conveniently located for your commute if you cannot work from home - NYC is about 90 minutes by car and Philly is 60 minutes the other way with most NE connections for trains and buses nearby.
