651 RIVER ROAD
YARDLEY, Pennsylvania, 19067 $800,000
Classic Bucks County charm abounds in this river front antique stone farmhouse. The original portion dates back to 1762, yet no modern convenience is missing in this fully renovated and updated Pennsbury SD home. Enjoy high ceilings and huge, Victorian style windows in the large formal living room, rustic exposed beams in the dining room which opens out onto the spacious outdoor terrace and the fully fenced grounds which include many fine plantings, gardens, and both lawn and woods. The updated designer's kitchen features built in SubZero fridge, Thermador stainless steel double oven, and Miele dishwasher. Lots of counter and cabinet space, the kitchen is adjacent to a large butler's pantry with farm sink, exposed brick, laundry (with a chute from the second floor!) and tons of additional pantry storage. Also on the first floor is an office with full bath, which could serve nicely as a guest room. Up either of two staircases and you will find three bedrooms with three full baths. With several doors, there is flexibility in creating a master suite on either side of the house, and the middle bedroom features a wall-to-wall built in bookshelf, ideal for incorporating into a master suite as a library or sitting room. The third floor features another bedroom or bonus room, making the layout of the house very flexible for a variety of preferences. Second washer/dryer in the basement, dumb waiter, and whole house generator with some service to the detached carriage house, which offers three garage bays and convenient powder room on the ground floor. The fully finished second floor of the carriage house is a one bedroom dwelling with a large, open living space. Enjoy the passive income generation, or use it as a home office, in-law residence or guest suite. Across the road, you have a private gate leading to the path down to the Delaware River with Riparian rights. Just minutes to the main roads to I-95, New Jersey, Philadelphia and NYC, yet set on a most bucolic country setting with a view out of every window, this property is the best of both worlds and ready for its next steward in more than 30 years.
