Would you love to live in a piece of history, but enjoy modern amenities? A piece of New Hope history is looking for its next caretaker.
Revered as having played an important role in the history of commerce in Bucks County in the mid to late 18th century, 1791 River Road once served as a lumberyard, fishery and staging point for river travel.
This extraordinary home is both enriched with modern luxury and resplendent in its extensive history, poised on 8.66 acres on the banks of the Delaware River. As early as 1799, and in continuance for three centuries, the home was used as an inn and tavern, Pidcock Tavern. Steeped in history, brought forth in modern luxury appointments and state of the art systems; the home has been skillfully renovated throughout; evident in the rich hardwood floors, walk-in fireplaces, exposed beams, gourmet kitchen, and open floor plan.
The distinctive main house hosts a large open gathering room, handsome dining room, gourmet kitchen with Brazilian Mariachi countertops and first-floor en suite. Each of the four bedrooms has its own bath and staircases. Guests will enjoy privacy canal-side in a quaint cottage above the two-car garage. Modern architecture has been gracefully embraced outdoors with stone walls, flagstone patios, professionally landscaped grounds, and mud bottom swimming hole. Stunning river and canal views are visible from every angle.
Parking is plenteous to host the liveliest of gatherings canal side or an intimate dinner party at the manor home. Only a mile to New Hope Borough – home to riverside dining & theatre, and exceptionally convenient to Philadelphia and New York City; 1791 River Road is the embodiment of cultured elegance wrapped in modern conveniences.
