New Hope townhome description

(Weekly Rentals Only)
This homey, eclectic, 15 x 32, 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.
As this is our home, it is filled with our things along with our spirit. (it is not a spare vacation rental) It's more like visiting your interesting (and a bit wacky) Aunt and Uncle. It is a lovely spot for families with 2 BRs on the third floor and a lovely master on the 4th with a 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 was 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 but sometimes it will be a little squeezy - especially when everyone wants to be in the 3rd floor hallway at the same time. But it is all part of the fun. 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 Floor: Master Bedroom w/ California King, fine linens, TV, Roku, mood lighting and a private, lounging deck overlooking the tree tops.
3rd Floor: Two Single Beds in separate rooms - one is in the office and the other is in the dressing room off the bathroom.
Bath has tub/shower, sink, toilet.
There is a large armoire with double hanging and shelves for your gear in the hallway along with drawers in the DR vanity and bathroom.
The walk through closet leads to the bath when someone is sleeping in the dressing room.
2nd Floor: hosts a double wide Living Room with TV and conversation area, an Office /Creative Room overlooking the back patio with wifi throughout the house and a front door to street level.
1st Floor: The heart of the home is found in the large, fully outfitted kitchen on the first floor, with a huge center island for shared chores, feasts and - conversation! Also a formal dining room, with a large window of antique glass panes, the washer/dryer and the second full bath with a glass enclosed shower. The patio has lounge chairs, outdoor dining table & gas grill) to transport you to the French Countryside.
The two story garden leading down 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!

We have 4 bikes and 2 rafts and 1 inner tube for your enjoyment.

Because of the stairs, this house is not suited for handicapped or in-firmed individuals.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1989

              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.
