With a village view through tall, western-facing front windows and picturesque country views from the backyard, this inviting, c. 1855 late Federal residence is in the heart of Solebury TownshipÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s historical hamlet of Carversville. Scenic walks, the Paunacussing Creek, village post office, pub and general store are just a short walk from this homeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s spiffy red front door. Add the neighboring stone and frame 18th- and 19th-century houses, and you can begin to appreciate an ambience and lifestyle that are all too rare, elements of country simplicity mixed with sophistication. Building on its good Ã¢â‚¬Å“bonesÃ¢â‚¬Â of high ceilings, butterscotch pine floors and tall sash windows, this home has been steadily improved in recent years to become an open living space, perfect for full-time or weekend living. From its living room with fireplace and formal dining room flanking the center staircase, it flows to an open kitchen and informal sitting area with original cooking fireplace that still works as a woodburning fireplace for chilly days. The timeless kitchen with penny tile floor has a stunning black walnut, live edge, slab wood countertop and second smaller counter inspired by renowned woodworker George Nakashima. The light flowing in from south-facing windows in this part of the house is phenomenal in all seasons. Chat with your guests while you cook at the GE Monogram gas range with griddle and convection oven. Stainless appliances and storage are well designed for serious cooks. A mudroom, full bath with radiant-heat floor, storage cabinets and door to the rear yard complete this area of the house. From the backyard enjoy views of 100+ preserved acres, or start here to walk the land. Seasonal blooms line each side of the yard. The homeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s three bedrooms are on the second floor and include a main bedroom with peaked, wainscoted ceiling with exposed metal tie rods and two closets and two secondary bedrooms each with built-in storage closets and drawers. A full hall bath serves these bedrooms. This home has toasty hot-water radiator and cast-iron baseboard heat. Many updates have been made in the past two years, including a GE professional-grade range, the addition of split-unit air conditioning for the first floor and ownerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s suite, new roof over the kitchen wing, a security system, a generator running off a 240-gallon propane tank, UV system for well water and French drains to keep water runoff away from the driveway and house. Move-in ready with spring bulbs just weeks away. New Hope-Solebury schools, too.
