Historically significant, this stately stone manor home is the epitome of country living in the charming Delaware River village of Riegelsville. Originally built c.1784 and completely renovated c.2005 the house reflects the detail and formal ambiance of a bygone era yet provides all the updated modern amenities for today's lifestyles. Original pumpkin pine floors are found throughout the house creating a warm glow against detail molding and thick baseboards, deep-set paneled window sills, custom built-in cabinets and hand-carved wood fireplace mantels with slate surrounds. 9' ceilings and 9-over-6 windows create light-filled spaces. The original front door with strap hinges and fanned transom window opens to the grand front flagstone terrace to enjoy long-distant views of farmland and hillside. The entry hall with exposed stone wall and convenient full bath is the welcoming point for the circular-flow floor plan, perfect for entertaining. The living room offers a wood-burning fireplace and a wall of built-in shelves and is flanked by the dining room with original built-in cabinet, and cozy den for curling up with a good book. With soapstone counters and sink, maple cabinets, stainless appliances, large island and breakfast area, the kitchen is the ultimate gathering spot, complete with French door leading to the patio and newly-refurbished salt water pool.
