Bucks County Homes for Sale, Erwinna Real Estate Listings, 53 Upper Tinicum Church Road, MLS #6747228 Luxury Homes, Condos, Estates for Sale

53 Upper Tinicum Church Road

Erwinna, PA 18920

Set at the end of a long gravel drive bordered by a wide, gently flowing creek and acres of trees is the Josephine Herbst House, that gets its name from the New York author and political radical who called it her country home for decades in the 1900s. The best of Bucks County's country milieu is represented here - hand-stacked stone walls and exposed timbers oversee pine floors of rich patina. After Herbst died, the next owner enlarged the house dramatically to provide gracious living space in keeping with its wholly Bucks County core. A sedate living room and gracious dining room serve as the flanks, while in the center is a dramatic solarium Great Room that captures the sun throughout the year; one can easily imagine Herbst's New York crowd gathering here for hours celebrating the changing seasons. Bedrooms upstairs include two possible options for the master, each with windows that open to hear the rippling water, and two additional rooms for family and guests. The smaller bedroom has a private veranda that captures the breeze and is an ideal spot for morning yoga, setting up an easel or enjoying a good book. Open all the windows and it's like you're sleeping under the stars. Outside is a two-story slate patio located off the living room, a formal front porch, outbuildings and a creekside gravel sitting/dining area that forms the most amazing spot for afternoon cocktails or coffee with nature. Exterior lighting only adds to the mood. Great for weekend entertaining and located just minutes from the village of Frenchtown, NJ this getaway is an easy ride whether you start in New York, Philadelphia or just down the street. Note-property consists of two parcels: 4.77 Acres (dwelling) and 8.16 Acres (opposite side of road) - see tax parcel in downloads.
