All of the charm of the English Countryside just moments from Yardley Borough, this picturesque 1908 Tudor-style stone home opens to reveal an elegant interior suited for luxury living. Entering the home, sets of original doors and a wrought iron gate open from the vestibule to showcase a central foyer with sweeping staircase and soaring ceilings. Curved doorways add a romantic touch throughout the home, with a classic dining room to the left and a living room space to the right. The beautifully detailed inlay-wood floors have been painstakingly restored to their original beauty and grace the entirety of the home along with deep trimwork, original doors and hardware and authentic detailing such as phantom screens on these spectacular windows. Behind the dining room, the perfectly placed kitchen has been completely redone in a style that honors the home's historic roots without lacking in today's conveniences. Here, tasteful maple shaker cabinets are topped with dark and earth toned granite countertops, paired with dark hardware. A wall of cabinets surround the refrigerator and, along with the pantry closet, ensure plentiful storage space. Pendant lights above the contrast-color island bring in a touch of contemporary style. One of the nicest features, here, however, are the walls of antique-style latched windows that prevent the kitchen from feeling dreary and serve as the perfect location for herb gardens. A tucked-away room beyond the kitchen offers space for a reading room, parlor, or handsome home office or a possible 4th bedroom possibility and is convenient to a powder room. To the right of the foyer, a large living room spans the depth of the home, allowing for three walls of windows and French doors to the covered stone patio which, previously, had been enclosed in screens and now overlooks the grounds and canal. At the far end, a stone fireplace accented by sconce lighting awaits fireside relaxing in the cool weather months. Upstairs, a generous main bedroom suite offers ample space to spread out and unwind at the end of the day. Dual walk-in closets feature space-saving pocket doors, while the completely redone main bathroom provides dual vanities, glass enclosed shower and the craftsmanship of yesteryear with a wall of built-in cabinetry in the separate dressing area. A second and third bedroom on the upper level feature the same detailing and appeal and share a full hall bathroom with bright white tile. The upper level is completed by a convenient laundry room area. For those that have eyes on the future and need more than the 3,700+ square feet that the home offers, a full-height third floor with hardwood floors and stone walls could easily be fitted as additional bedroom or office space abundant with character. An unfinished basement also offers storage space and awaits your vision. Outside, the grounds have been cleared and are ready for your design - whether it's to relax in English gardens or to host firepit gatherings, the possibilities are endless. Backing to the Delaware Canal, this home presents the perfect opportunity to own a part of Yardley's history both indoors and out. Includes a large detached 4 car garage. This property backs to conservation easement land owned by the township. The adjacent lot next to the garage property (lot 1) is a separate parcel and not part of this home's sale.
