Description

Circa 1740, the three story Lloyd-Balderston Farmhouse has been expanded, renovated and beautifully maintained over the years, and is an easy 15 minute bucolic ride along the Delaware River to the sister towns of New Hope and Lambertville. The best of all worlds, the long, paved driveway leads you back in time to this traditional and eminently private Bucks County Stone Farmhouse with multiple outbuildings. Outfitted with all the modern conveniences, this 280 year-old renovated home has public water and sewer. Set on over and acre and a half of totally private impeccably maintained grounds, this gem is also surrounded by a quiet picturesque neighborhood of stately homes. Enjoy your morning espresso while watching the sunrise from either of your two covered side porches. The original random width pumpkin pine floors have been preserved throughout the home. The kitchen, with it's six burner Jenn-Air island cooktop and Sub Zero wood paneled refrigerator, features a high ceiling with a balcony overlooking the original floor to ceiling stone walls with walk in fireplace and a bee hive oven as your backdrop. The oversized living room features another fireplace with an exquisite Delft tile surround. The formal dining room has multiple entrances. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, two on the second and two on the third floor, along with two full baths. The guest bedroom also features a floor to ceiling fieldstone wall with the third gas operated fireplace, flanked by built in bookshelves. Double pane insulated windows throughout. Central Air Conditioning and multi zone radiant hot water heat system along with forced air. The outbuildings and grounds are perfect for entertaining. The 54' heated in ground Anthony-Silvan swimming pool and spa have the feel of a resort and afford complete privacy. There is an 18th century carriage house with three floors and room to park many cars. An easy commute to New York, Philadelphia, Princeton, etc. Highly sought after Pennsbury Schools. Truly a very special home!
