New Hope chateau / country house description

Longwood is a magical 1765 stone farmhouse on 12 gated acres in the estate area of historic New Hope/Solebury, PA. Formerly part of the William Penn Land Grant and built by a leading local family before the Revolution, this private enclave was completely modernized in 2011 including marble subway tiled bathrooms and a chefs kitchen, as well as a bluestone bordered swimming pool with poolhouse. It is ideal for entertaining and includes both a spacious living room with two fireplaces, a Great Room with 50' flat screen HD TV off the kitchen, a library with attached powder room, and a dining room with original 18th century open hearth fireplace. The house has two master bedrooms, one with bathroom en suite. Other bedrooms include two with queen sized beds and one with a single bed. The poolhouse contains a queen-sized pull out sofa (Restoration Hardware) which could be used as an additional sleeping area during warmer months. On-site caretaker in separate carriage house can address any questions about house systems and give advice on area activities. House enjoys sweeping vista onto fields with fenced organic garden in center which guests are welcome to enjoy. Property contains woods with trails and a bonfire pit, ideal for roasting marshmallows or enjoying a glass of a good red by moonlight. Gas grill in outdoor dining area directly off kitchen/Great Room. Owners have a keen interest in design, and have mixed antiques and art with selected mid-century finds, in a manner which respects the house's 225 year pedigree. House was featured in the Bucks County Historic House Tour (2011).
