Across a camelback bridge and down a sweet country lane, you will discover a magical riverfront carriage house! Often referred to as the "Hansel and Gretel House", this one-of-kind home stands majestically between the Delaware River and Canal and has a graceful poise all its own. Unique in every way, its dramatic architectural lines and commanding presence define its early 1900s style. Originally the carriage house for a neighboring property, its characteristics are rustic yet refined, whimsical yet sophisticated. A stone fireplace, log beams, rustic woods, bluestone floors and custom woodwork exude charm and warmth. The kitchen is complete with Viking stove, Sub-Zero refrigerator, granite counters and Bosch dishwasher. The den, with its vaulted ceiling and built-in bookcases, features an antique fireplace mantle, a dutch door and french doors that lead out to dueling patios. A stunning staircase with a cupola above leads upstairs to beautiful bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows and hardwood floors. A sitting/dressing room, laundry and two baths round out the second level. Outside, lush landscaping provides a secluded respite with riparian rights and direct access to the towpath for recreational activities. Multiple outdoor venues around the home include a serene screened-in porch enveloped by beautiful tranquil gardens, a brick patio for grilling and dining, and a bluestone patio for sunbathing or cuddling around the chiminea. The ultimate outside living space is located down a path of boulder steps leading to the exquisite river terrace with a water view. From the terrace, steps lead to the river landing offering easy access for tubing, kayaking and fishing. A beautiful custom-designed oversized shed, decked-out with the original carriage house doors and hardware, includes a loft with built-in ladder and very generous storage space for river toys, bicycles, garden tools and equipment. Quality materials, distinctive design and and desirable location make this a property you won't want to miss. You could be the next proud steward of this very special home! Owner is a licensed PA Realtor.
