Beautiful 35 acres in the heart of New Hope/Solebury, surrounded by 200 acres of conserved farmland that will never be developed-- this property offers complete privacy and is set back on one of the most tranquil, sought-after roads in the area. The home is located just minutes from the towns of Lambertville and New Hope with the Delaware River running between them. Enjoy the tranquility of this property with its nature trails and the Pidcock Creek, complete with a waterfall, running through the backyard. There is a wide variety of wildlife including a rookery of great herons nearby, one of a very few rookeries in the whole state. Bring your horses, as the property boasts excellent horse facilities that are suitable for either the amateur or professional. The long tree-lined driveway leads you to the home discreetly tucked away from views from the road. Enter through the front door and you will be greeted by a view of the lush gardens, creek and waterfall. Windows across the entire length of the house offer that same view. The two-story great room is flanked by a breath-taking wall of exposed stone and a large stone fireplace. A cozy reading/sitting room is adjacent to the great room. The large dining room is enclosed on three sides by windows looking out on the back yard and creek. The gourmet kitchen is expansive and would please the most advanced chef. It features beautiful soapstone countertops, high-end appliances, beautiful custom wooden cabinets and a large breakfast room. The laundry room area is conveniently located next to the kitchen. A spacious family/media room with a small office nook and sliding glass doors leads out to one of the patios. There is a large bedroom suite on the main floor with a full bath, walk-in closet, sliding glass door to your private patio, and an office/sitting/reading room. The second story solo suite is located at the other end of the home and has access without having to go through the house - a good spot for live-in help or a nanny. There are also three additional spacious bedrooms on the second floor. A lovely pool and hot tub are steps away from the bedroom suite. There is a large three-car garage with 1200 square feet of finished space above, a spectacular room with views of the pond and pastures. A raised bed vegetable garden with a pergola is just outside. The horse facilities accommodate either the amateur or professional. There is a seven stall barn with excellent ventilation, a wide concrete aisle, a large loft for hay storage, a heated and air conditioned tack room and feed room, and a wash stall with heat lamps and hot/cold water. Every stall opens to a gravel paddock; there are three fenced pastures with another 6-8 acres that could be fenced in. The outdoor ring is 100’ x 200’ and has excellent footing; lights from the barn provide light at night. There are trails that can be ridden throughout the property. You will not find this kind of space and privacy with this kind of convenience anywhere else in Bucks County. New Hope is 10 minutes away for daily needs and schools, which are some of the finest in the Philadelphia region. I 95 is 15 minutes away, with NYC about 90 minutes by car and Philly about 60 minutes, and there are train and bus connections nearby. The location offers everything you need for everyday life nearby, daily necessities plus local theatre companies, art galleries, antique stores, auction houses, museums, and of course award-winning restaurants.
