This week brought some notable new homes for sale in Bucks County, among them two houses with “1” as their house numbers. Let’s look at these “No. 1” homes.
SUMMARY: WOW. These days, buyers walk into homes and, at least according to what agents hear, they want everything done. To perfection. Well, here it is on two manicured acres in a cul de sac setting. New cook’s kitchen (the owners both like to cook at the same time in the space, so believe me when I tell you, it’s been well thought out), new bathrooms, freshly painted, professionally landscaped. New Hope-Solebury schools. Near Carversville village, Maximuck’s farm market, equidistant to New Hope and Doylstown. See this one quickly because it likely won’t last long on the market. Contact Hellen Cannon for more information: 215.779.6151.
SUMMARY: Let’s just shoo the elephant right out of the room here. This is a riverfront property. It has been raised above the flood line because, yes, it had some water on the basement level. The current owner did a well-engineered, very aesthetically pleasing house-lift and now, this cutie-petutie has even better river views. If ever there was a perfect weekend house for the city dweller who gets nervous being back a long driveway, or who loves kayaking or jet-skiiing, or bicycling, or just sitting on your various decks overlooking the water, this is the place for you. Tailored landscaping means you don’t have to spend all weekend dealing with the grounds. Cruise into this historical village from either New York or Philadelphia in 90 minutes, grab a Friday night dinner at the Riegelsville Inn across the street (you must get to know Beth, the best bartender around and a very accomplished artist), and wake up Saturday ready for whatever fun strikes your fancy. Contact Donald Pearson for more information: 267.907.2590.
