The opportunity to purchase a truly historic structure is yours. This four-bedroom, 3.5-bath English-style cottage in New Hope was built in 1650 — well over a century before the American Revolution. Its quaint exterior, however, belies the extensive renovations that have brought the inside into the 21st Century, with no sacrifice of charm or appeal.

Deep windowsills, exposed-beam ceilings, three beautiful fireplaces and exposed stone walls add visual interest and texture to the interior.

Meal prep is centuries away from a kettle over an open hearth, yet the cabinetry and Quartz countertops are in fashion with the historic vibe of the property. A handsome porcelain farmhouse sink, breakfast bar, and pantry complete the kitchen area.

.

The living room with fireplace is divided by the stairwell, a convenient arrangement if someone wishes to watch TV in one area and have a quiet space in the other.

Upstairs are two bedrooms that share a Jack & Jill bath with custom shower finished in slate tile with rainfall showerhead and vanity with undermount sink.

This truly picturesque property is dotted with towering mature trees, weeping willows edging a small pond and running creek, and fresh landscaping around the terraces.

This unique home at 2730 Creamery Rd, New Hope, lists for $1,495,000.
