c. 1778 Rockcroft on the Delaware is an iconic stone farm house rich with a history from Revolutionary times along the Delaware River. A complete renovation delivers timeless architectural details and modern energy-efficient upgrades making it the manageable estate property it is today. Two parcels of land, one riverfront, create a private oasis beyond the field of wild flowers and grasses. Past the entry columns lie beautifully landscaped grounds, patios surrounded by lush gardens and a sophisticated pool complex. Double French doors open to an interior rich with millwork and wood floors, 9' ceilings and large and numerous Marvin windows capturing views of Fry's Run and winter views of the Delaware River. The entry hall with parquet floors and arched doorways is flanked by the living room with stone fireplace and the large dining room with space to comfortably sit 20 guests. Made cozy by exposed stone wall and bead-board ceiling, the sun room enjoys views of the property, and French doors open to a bluestone patio. Modern with a country flair, the granite kitchen is open to the breakfast room and offers high-end appliances, center island Viking commercial-grade gas cooking, double ovens, custom cabinets, pantry, built-ins and French door leading to a hidden flagstone patio with pergola. Off the 2nd floor center hall is the main bedroom with tiled bath with double vanity, and two more en suite bedrooms. There is a hall library and a balcony overlooking the grounds and the hills of adjacent 200-acre preserved Meriton Wildlife Sanctuary, adding to the privacy. The third floor consists of two bedrooms, one currently used as a studio office, and large hall bath with double vanity, small tub and glass shower. The basement's 680sf of finished space provides excellent storage. High-end energy-efficient Viessmann furnace supplies 10-zones of radiant floor heat. Outdoor space is crowned by the heated pool and spa with extensive bluestone patio and loggia with outdoor kitchen and sound system.
