Eight miles north of New Hope is the historic village of Lumberville, PA, settled in 1755 by a Revolutionary War hero, Colonel George Wall. The village has been preserved, restored and revitalized over the years and has become a favorite rest stop or weekend getaway for many travelers to Bucks County’s river county. Today we would like to feature “Bridgeview”, aptly named for your view from the front porch of the Lumberville pedestrian bridge.
A pathway of cobblestones from River Road lead the way to this charming county manor home. It was built in 1858 and refurbished meticulously over recent years with an eye to preserving the original architecture while providing the upgraded conveniences of modern day. This home was built to be admired. Walking from Bull Island in New Jersey to Pennsylvania across the pedestrian bridge, you are presented with a sideways glance of the Bridgeview Manor off in the distance. The front of the home is southern facing and bathed in the sun’s warmth throughout a sunny day. It is just as warm and comfortable inside this home during those chilly evenings and when Mother Nature is whipping up a storm. Ten foot ceilings, beautiful wood floors and spectacular millwork line most of the rooms throughout the house. There is a formal living room and dining room to entertain your visitors. My favorite place in this home is this spectacular Great Room with it’s cozy fireplace.
Exposed beams overhead, quality wood work for the mantel and trim work make this room very special.
Just outside this room is the built in pool surrounded with brick and stone pavers. Beyond the pool are the barn and workshop. This view of the backyard from the patio is very special and one can spend a quiet morning reading a great book before tending to the gardens and tinkering on your latest project in the barn.
The best view by far is from the the east facing patio where this home get’s its name. Looking out over the Delaware River from the comfort of your own furniture has a very calming and soothing effect. You can catch the sunrise in the morning or do some people watching in the late afternoon.
