If your dream home is a place where top-notch restaurants, deep history, natural beauty, and a welcoming community are as close as the doorstep, this one-of-a-kind New Hope residence might be just the thing.

The three-bed, three-bath, 2,300 square foot house sits near the historic towpath trail and near the Aquetong Creek.

Its structure shows a long-term ability to weather storms, but her sturdy bones don’t mean puritan living. This early period house has gone through a recent, extensive, and meticulous renovation by the current stewards, preserving its history while providing modern updates to plumbing, electric, and fixtures.
