Property description

(Weekly Rentals Only)
This homey, eclectic, 15 x 32, 4 story stone townhouse will instantly embrace you with history and warmth. Situated in town, above a magical creek and private garden, the four enchanting levels with wide plank wood floors, pie-shaped stairs, exposed beams, stone walls, delightful antiques and curiosities will delight all your senses.
It is the owners home and filled with personal touches. (it is not a spare vacation rental) It's like visiting your interesting (and maybe a bit wacky) Aunt and Uncle. A lovely spot for families with a Master BR on the 3rd Flr and 2 single beds on the 4th Flr "Artist Garret", which also boasts a sumptuous private deck.
This is not your typical house. It was built for the mill workers over 200 years ago. The train trestle that crosses the creek in the garden was built over 100 years ago and where they filmed the very first movie -" The Perils of Pauline". There are lots of spots to get a bit of privacy in and out of the house.. All we ask is that you respect our privacy and take care of our home and things as you would a respected relative. And add your love to the spirit of the house. Minimum rental: 7 days. Maximum: Let's talk.
4th Flr: 2 single beds in the Art Studio and private lounging deck overlooking tree tops.
3rd Flr: Master Bedroom w/ California King, fine linens, TV, Roku, mood lighting. Full Bath with tub and single sink. Dressing Room with Vanity. Antique Guest Armiore. Walk Thru Closet to get to Bathroom if Dressing Room is occupied.
g room.
2nd Flr: Front Door to Street Level, Comfy Living Room with TV, Roku, DVD, VCR. Partners Desk Area. Separate Music/Study Room with CD's LP's and Turntable
1st Flr: Fully outfitted Kitchen with New Fridge, Gas Range and Dishwasher. Huge Center Island for shared chores, feasts and conversation! Formal Dining Room with Long Bench in front of large window of antique glass panes. Wahser/Dryer and Full Bath with glass enclosed shower. The patio has lounge chairs, outdoor dining table & gas grill to transport you to the French Countryside.
GARDEN: Two story garden path leads to a fresh water creek, framed by two massive stone pillars of the NEW HOPE-IVYLAND antique train trestle, with a fire pit and sitting area for sharing drinks and stories and s'mores while watching the blue heron, deer, fish and sunrise/sunsets. Amazing hidden tranquility in the middle of a busy town!
4 bikes and 1inner tube for your enjoyment.
Because of the stairs, this house is not suited for handicapped or in-firmed individuals.

About the owner: Our home reflects our interest in art, beauty, and creativity. We love to cook, sharing meals and stories with friends. We each pursue our passions in writing and various disciplines of art.

Why the Owner Chose New Hope:
This is not a 'vacation rental', it is our home, filled with memories and personal treasures; which makes for a very warm, cozy environment. It is like going to your favorite Aunts or Grandmother's home. We chose to live in New Hope because it is filled with creative type people and abounds with natural beauty.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
New Hope and Lambertville are endlessly charming and engaging towns all through the year. Beyond the restaurants and entertainment, we love to walk with the dogs on the many hidden paths and parks in the area and relax in our garden with a fire. Our home is set up for entertaining and enjoying the outdoors. With four floors, everyone can have their own space when they need it. Beyond the charm of the house and town, there are many historic and outdoor amusements for every taste. Our home provides an excellent anchor for exploring - or as a nest for creativity. It's up to you.
