Completed in 2004 by developer Tom Scannapieco, Waterview Place was the first true, luxury condominium and townhouse community built on the Delaware River in Bucks County. It remains a choice address for those seeking a beautiful waterfront residence in a boutique-sized community. Located just a minute south of the heart of New Hope Borough, Waterview Place is accessed via a charming canal bridge. On the canal side are 12 townhouses each with two-car garage parking and private elevator; across a large paver courtyard with fountain are four condominium buildings with four, floor-through flats each and gated garage parking below for 28 units total in the community. There is overflow parking on each side of Waterview, so for those who enjoy entertaining, guest parking is never a problem.
On the river side, the condominiums are accessed via a secure elevator that opens directly into each apartment. Inside, every condominium has an unique floor plan and finishes, inevitably done with quality in the finishes and fixtures. In every case, the water views play starring roles with all of the major living spaces open to terraces facing the river. The first floor units have the largest terraces with the scale stepping back a bit for higher-floor units. Chef’s kitchens, elegant living and dining spaces, luxe master suites and en suite guest bedrooms are the norm.
The townhouses are four stories each. The elevators serve all four floors from the garage level upward. All have similar floor plans but the finishes vary from traditional, elegant “Park Avenue” to highly modern, streamlined designs. Open living/dining areas access beautifully outfitted chef’s kitchens at the back of the units with doors to private decks overlooking the canal — many of the townhouse units also have river views, though they are not as direct as those on the condo side. Main bedroom suites are on either the second or third floors, and most townhouses have two additional en suite bedrooms with a office or other bonus space, or some have three bedrooms and two additional baths. The lower level tends to provide flex space for a gym, hobby area, storage etc.
For a turnkey lifestyle where one can say goodbye to the maintenance most single-family homes require without sacrificing a gracious lifestyle, Waterview Place is perfect.
