1509 River Road

New Hope, PA 18938

Historical (1812) affordable gem in the Upper Makefield village of Brownsburg. This home was built about 40 years after Lt.James Monroe and General George Washington marched through the village of Brownsburg on their way to the Battle of Trenton on Christmas day, 1776. Initially, the building was used as a general store and Post office. Since then there have been updates, but the bones and appeal of this home remain the same. As with many homes and businesses of that period, the home is set back a short distance from River Road, but the thick stone walls mute the road noise just as they did in the carriage days. Since 1973, the current owners have continually upgraded with more modern conveniences such as central air, oil heat, 200-300 amp electric, and the addition of a very functional and well designed kitchen and bright rear sun porch. Bedrooms are larger than one would expect of a home this age. A large red barn can serve as a two car garage and there is additional parking available in the driveway.A deep back yard and small brick terrace are the perfect places for garden parties.The village of Brownsburg has a rich heritage, preserved in just a few remaining lovingly maintained homes. It isn't often that one of them becomes available for sale. Add your name to one of the lucky few to have lived here.
