New Hope cottage description

A CLASSIC
The cottage, built in the late 1600’s, is a classic, where function defines form, where light and shadow create mood and atmosphere, where every nook and cranny provide its own adventure, where nature blends into everyday life… Perfect for the whole family, a quiet romantic getaway or to write the great American novel.

Cozy
The Cottage is cozy and charming with great attention to detail. The first floor contains the primary living quarters with a working fireplace, full kitchen, full bath, enclosed sun porch and full size comfortable futon bed/couch. Ascend a modest spiral staircase to the sleeping quarters with pitched roof, one full bed and two twin beds in a separate room.

In the spring and summer use the air conditioning or refresh in the gentle breezes that flow through open windows. In colder weather there is forced air heat or warm yourself with the working wood fireplace. Relax, explore… enjoy!

MUCH TO DO
Enjoy a quiet time on this private nature reserve: Visit the working farm, Hiking trails are everywhere, Fish in the nearby stream or just sit on the porch swing and watch nature and wildlife go by. Secluded yet close to everything from antiquing, horseback riding to casual or fine dining.

HISTORIC
Built mostly of red sandstone and shale, its 18” thick walls, deep-set windows, exposed hand-hewn beams and floors show 300 years of patina and history. Maintained in its original condition, “modern” amenities (indoor plumbing and heating, kitchen, summer porch) were added in 1941

Travel down an old one lane country road along the Little Neshaminy Creek. To a place where early settlers worked to forge a new nation, where in 1777 the Revolutionary War came to its door steps; to a place where Washington sent his officers to obtain supplies for 11,000 troupes camped in the nearby fields and woods.

TIMELESS
Travel back in time to the 17th century in this beautiful 1696 historic storybook cottage nestled in a 1000 acre private nature reserve, surround yourself in the endless beauty of nature. Situated on its own seven acre parcel, adjacent to the internationally renowned Ross Mill Farm, guests are welcome to visit this working farm.

ROSS MILL FARM
The cottage is adjacent to the Ross Mill Farm, an origional fieldstone Bucks County farm, (on the web as rossmillfarm ). Build between 1730 and 1750. Today it is still a working farm dedicated too the wellbeing of the miniature pet pig as a household companion pet. Guests are invited to visit the farm and its out buildings and to interact with this unique breed. Many of the Farm animals graze freely on the Farm and Cottage grounds. Guests will find them friendly, well mannered, clean and sociable.

                          Year Purchased: 1982

                          About the owner: As a steward of the land, I consider it a responsibility to maintain the historic integrity of this unique property. The cottage was made available to guests in 1999 to provide the opportunity for others to experience and enjoy. I am dedicated to ensuring you have a great time. The working farm is considered the primary source for information on the potbellied pig as a household companion pet.

                          Why the Owner Chose New Hope:
                          I chose this Cottage and the adjacent farm because of its location, secluded yet close to everything, inherent beauty and historical significance.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          The cottage is situated between Philadelphia and New York with easy access to a wide variety of activities from rural, like hiking, wine tasting, fishing and horseback riding to more urban like fine dining and the theater.
