Hidden along the Delaware River and Delaware Canal in the historic Village of Lumberville in Bucks County, PA, this sterling 18th-century stone house offers 3 full floors of living plus basement and panoramic water views with the relaxing sounds of the rapids in the background. Dating to the c. 1740s with a c. 1780 addition and beautifully maintained, its historical elements fit perfectly in the updated and modernized interior. Original yellow pine floors, high ceilings, four functional fireplaces, including a walk-in, tall sash windows providing wonderful natural light and water views from almost every room, create an ambiance that works for both traditional and contemporary décor. The home’s floor plan affords circular flow through the entry foyer, large formal living room, dining room and kitchen along with outside access to four patios and a screened porch, making it well suited to both entertaining and intimate gatherings. The well-designed kitchen has been updated with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances and has a Vermont slate floor. Take in breathtaking river views while you enjoy breakfast or prepare dinner. Just off the kitchen is a beautiful “porchula,” a covered area half under roof, half under a pergola for your favorite climbing plants. Bedrooms are on the second and third floors. The main bedroom suite includes a full bath, fireplace and alcove lounging area; the guest bedroom has its own full bath; all are conveniently located on the second floor along with the laundry area. The third floor offers a bird’s-eye view of the river and Bulls Island State Park. This large, fully finished, dormered living space with book shelves and charming window seats can be a third bedroom, office, play room or lounge. It is complemented with generous storage and a powder room that can be made into a full bath. Outside, the grounds have been lushly landscaped with perennials, flowering shrubs and trees, boxwoods, ferns and mosses, all set against stone walls and pathways. A separate two-car garage plus studio with fireplace has great potential for the buyer who wishes to create a more finished space. Along with many improvements completed over the years , this property has a whole-house generator, central air conditioning, no-maintenance gutters, a water purification system, a gated entry and fencing for privacy, and “fairyland” exterior lighting. A magical environment for the person seeking privacy along the river. Walkable to Lumberville’s Black Bass Hotel and General Store as well as the canal towpath and bridge across the river. Enjoy the charm of Village life: seeing neighbors while collecting your mail and at the annual village picnic.
