1278 River Road

Titusville, NJ 08560

Although this lovely 3 bedroom property on 1.69 acres is currently a legal duplex with 2 bedrooms on main level and one bedroom in upper level unit - it can be re- converted back to a large single residence with a large carriage house and grand views of the Delaware Rive Valley below. The owner of many years is anxious to sell the property now. To that end the asking price has been dramatically lowered so that a new owner can afford to use this property in a multiplicity of ways e.g It could be remodeled to a gracious home, or a modern home could be rebuilt on the site because there is so much scenic land on which to do it .Ideally, the home could be a weekend getaway within close proximity to a bridge to Bucks County and the towns of New Hope and Lambertville . Living on one level and legally renting out the other makes for wonderfully economic living. The current tenants are month to month but would love to stay if invited to by the new owner. Both units have fine views of the Delaware River and canal below especially in the winter. The two story carriage house across from a large rear car park 75x25 (see MLS 6747637 for income flows) has an extensive carport but also offers extraordinary opportunities to store a boat, car, business or hobby materials. Furthermore, the car park cannot be seen from the road . This wonderful property is being offered " as is". There is a Hopewell Township approved engineering plan for a 3 bedrooms new septic system but this can be changed by the potential purchaser. The property is close to the Delaware and the canal towpath which is a boom for hikers/bikers/kayakers and the historical Washington Crossing State Park is 2 minutes drive away , yet 5 minutes drive in the other direction leads to the I 95 link to major cities . Note although close to the Delaware the property is not in a flood zone .This year a 3 zone oil heating system was installed and the upper level is served by Central AC. If you visit the property with open eyes you will discern the enormous potential that it affords. Come see it-walk the grounds- visit the historical and useful carriage house- and bring your offers! Great for investors and flip at this price. Note a 48 hr notice to show .
