One of Solebury’s most iconic historical cottages, this petite stone house is set back off the road and tucked into a hillside overlooking a small spring-fed pond within a lush setting. With the Primrose Creek running nearby, the sound of water is close enough to serve as nature's 'white noise' along with a bullfrog or two. It is the perfect, character-filled weekender and for many years has served as such a getaway for city dwellers. The main living room features a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, a wood-burning fireplace with handsome surround, wood floors and broad sash windows. Step up to a dining area with classic black-and-white marble checkerboard floor, exposed-beam ceiling, new sliding doors to the side yard and an exposed stone wall. The rustic kitchen features a beautiful leaded-glass window over the sink, barnwood cabinetry, herringbone-pattern brick floor and an exposed stone wall. A full bath with tub/shower finished in Mercer tile with a “Peaceable Kingdom”-inspired inset also has a stone-topped sink vanity and backsplash. Two bedrooms, each with wood floors and leaded-glass, awning-style windows, are up a short flight of stairs. One has been finished with a barrel-vaulted ceiling and has leaded-glass French doors while the other bedroom has a peaked vaulted ceiling. Outside are various seating areas with a mix of perennial plantings and mature trees. A short walk from Solebury village with its charming post office and Laurel Park, this home is a wonderful retreat in the heart of Bucks County that keeps you close to New Hope, Lambertville, Stockton, the canal path and river without putting you in the middle of the hubbub that sometimes comes with in-town living. Five minutes from the bridges to New Jersey.
