Hidden along the Delaware River and Delaware Canal in the historic Village of Lumberville in Bucks County, PA, this sterling 18th-century stone house offers 3 full floors of living plus basement and panoramic water views with the relaxing sounds of the rapids in the background. Dating to the c. 1740s with a c. 1780 addition and beautifully maintained, its historical elements fit perfectly in the updated and modernized interior. Original yellow pine floors, high ceilings, five functional fireplaces, including a walk-in, tall sash windows providing wonderful natural light and water views from almost every room, create an ambiance that works for both traditional and contemporary d cor. The home's floor plan affords circular flow through the entry foyer, large formal living room, dining room and kitchen along with outside access to four patios and a screened porch, making it well suited to both entertaining and intimate gatherings. The well-designed kitchen has been updated with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances and has a Vermont slate floor. Take in breathtaking river views while you enjoy breakfast or prepare dinner. Just off the kitchen is a beautiful "porchula," a covered area half under roof, half under a pergola for your favorite climbing plants. Bedrooms are on the second and third floors. The main bedroom suite includes a full bath, fireplace and alcove lounging area; the guest bedroom has its own full bath; all are conveniently located on the second floor along with the laundry area. The third floor offers a bird's-eye view of the river and Bulls Island State Park. This large, fully finished, dormered living space with book shelves and charming window seats can be a third bedroom, office, play room or lounge. It is complemented with generous storage and a powder room that can be made into a full bath. Outside, the grounds have been lushly landscaped with perennials, flowering shrubs and trees, boxwoods, ferns and mosses, all set against stone walls and pathways. A separate two-car garage plus studio with fireplace has great potential for the buyer who wishes to create a more finished space. Along with many improvements completed over the years, this property has a whole-house generator, central air conditioning, no-maintenance gutters, a water purification system, a gated entry and fencing for privacy, and "fairyland" exterior lighting. A magical environment for the person seeking privacy along the river.
