Townhome or Condo

A classic, circa 1790's, colonial carriage home located in the heart of New Hope, with later additions in the 1920's and 1980's is a comfortable and spacious retreat for a full time residence, a weekend get-a-way or as a rental income investment. There are original wide plank pine floors, beams, and a stone fireplace in the living room and there may be a second covered fireplace in the dining room, as well as covered stone walls in the front two bedrooms. Its simplistic charm beckons the antique enthusiast. Enter the front door into an entrance hall that opens to the living room and dining room for easy entertaining. The rooms in the front of the house with the large picture window may also provide opportunity for a home business/retail. The spacious kitchen with painted slate floors and French doors open to an intimate gathering/family room in the back of the house with garden and patio views through a large picture window. An access gate in the fenced backyard opens to a walking path into town. The second floor has three rooms and a bath for flexible use of space. The third floor bonus room may serve as a bedroom, office or studio space. Some appointments like the heater, water heater, stove in the kitchen, bathroom and part of the roof and a few windows are newer. This in an exceptional opportunity to live in what was believed, through written and oral history, to be the oldest single home on the oldest street in town. Later, homes were adjoined to this property. The towpath is just steps away for biking, running or walking. There is great potential for value enhancement to this historic home. Reasonably priced permit parking is available.
