100 Tidewater Drive, Bensalem, Pa.

This custom built home in Bensalem encompasses three separate units, all with their own entrances and full appointments. It’s ideal for a homeowner in need of an in-law suite. Or an entrepreneur launching a side business in welcoming overnight guests à la Airbnb.

But if you’ve got an extensive book collection, this is the place for you.

The main house is more than 4,000 square feet of living space facing the Delaware River.



The grand foyer boasts stately arches, giving glimpses to the rest of the first level. The hardwood floor provides a warm and attractive contrast.



The foyer flows easily to the nearby living room and dining room, whose tray ceilings are an interesting architectural detail.



The gourmet New York style kitchen has everything a family chef needs: bright light, convenient and plentiful storage, easy access to the dining room, and modern appliances.



The extra-wide split staircase leads to the owners’ suite, with its own tray ceiling, custom lighting, walk-in closet, and plush bathroom.



The below-level floor, however, is the site of a spacious family room where those glorious bookcases are the focal point. This space also has its own full bathroom.



Providing an unparalleled spot to read those books is the rooftop deck with its jaw-dropping views.



An attached, oversized, two-car garage makes the property complete.

100 Tidewater Drive, Bensalem, lists for $1,500,000, which is inclusive of all three residences.
