Attention all artists, musicians, authors & those who desire the tranquility of nature at its best, the energy of a moving river, the vibrancy of a community that supports all of the arts & feeds itself from locally harvested farms. Closer than Vermont, closer than the Berkshires, closer than the Hamptons and only 90 miles from mid-town Manhattan! The surrounding area is abundant with activities, yet you leave it all when you arrive at Culvert Hill Drive. When you first glimpse the 1,000' shoreline of the Delaware River that divides the boundary between PA & NY State, you have arrived. On the home’s exterior, cedar shake shingles w/ dark green trim are reminiscent of the finest Adirondack cottages. A stunning interior has forever views from almost every room. As you step inside your eyes are drawn to the far side of the vaulted floor to ceiling windows framing the treetops & the river below. In all four seasons, the views are awesome. Two story skylights make electric lighting almost unnecessary. An open floor plan on the first level encompasses a computer work area, an open chef's kitchen w/ floor to ceiling windows facing the river, cathedral windows facing up the river & windows facing across the drive & guest apt. For casual dining or morning coffee, sit at the table facing the river & watch as the local wildlife plays below your feet or as an eagle flys to & fro from her nest only a few tree limbs above you. A Vermont Castings wood stove easily warms the entire first floor & serves as attractive decor when not in use. Continuing along the riverfront of windows is a pair of glass doors opening to a huge deck to enjoy the warmer months. Inside, a large room divided only by the placement of furniture, are the dining room & the living room. Every seat in this room gives you a spectacular 360 view of your surroundings. The main level ends with an outdoor-screened porch, perfect for evening entertaining or a quiet afternoon nap. The upper level houses the owner's suite & includes a light filled Jacuzzi bath, shower stall, dressing area & walk-in closet. The bedroom naturally takes advantage of the river views. The Lower level consists of two bedrooms, a half bath & reading area with direct access to the riverfront & an outdoor shower. Across the drive through a breezeway is a one car garage and above it a studio for the artist or overnight guests.
