Unique & Charming Rivertown Haven. Tucked away from the weekend foot traffic that is the hallmark of Lambertville, New Hope, and the Delaware River towpaths - this unique and charming home is in the south part of Lambertville which most locals will tell you is the “best part of town.” Enter through a private, custom mahogany gated driveway with coveted off-street parking and follow the stone inlaid walkway through the lush, serene flowering gardens to sounds of birds and a trickling water fountain. Exhale from the everyday hustle and stress and simply “let go” in your own private Nirvana! A perfect spot for that Sunday morning cup of your favorite coffee and the NY Times. The property has been featured in a local Hidden Gardens Tour and when you see it you will understand why. It is hard to believe that this home is only a few blocks away from the center of Lambertville. The property has so much to offer, with many possibilities to fulfill your dreams & needs. The two separate structures include a very large and spacious studio serving as the ultimate unexpected bonus for any buyer. Have you ever said I wish I had room to....? This big, well-appointed open space, with its vaulted ceilings and generous number of sky lights can be your art studio, dance studio, physical therapy room, yoga studio, classroom, show-stopping office, anything is possible! Recent uses include a Pilates training room, dance fitness studio and an art framing shop. With its granite countered kitchenette, wheelchair accessible bathroom, spaciousness, built-in surround-sound, extra storage room and private owners entrance just steps from your residence, you will readily combine business, passion, and convenience. The current owner is using the studio as an oversized gathering/media/music room, writing studio and private charitable events venue. The main house offers a captivating, unique architectural design which you will notice immediately upon entering. Dramatic two-story ceilings are filled with interesting cross beams and angles everywhere you look. Follow the beautiful hardwood floors into the large living and dining room separated by a one-of-a-kind floor-to-ceiling fireplace. Lots of natural light streams through a large wall of windows with picture-perfect views of the garden, fountain, and seasonal surprises - no television needed! (yet of course both structures include ample cable connections to enjoy large screen movie nights with neighbors and colleagues.) The Dining area is large enough for a big holiday dinner but also a perfect size for an intimate candlelit dinner for two. The home is built with lots of well-placed custom built-in cabinets and bookshelves and offers ample closet space. The gourmet kitchen is well appointed and planned out with custom cabinets, skylights, granite countertops, and well-placed stainless steel high-end appliances - it is a perfect spot to prepare your next feast. A new luxury bathroom is just around the corner with a sunlit large “open” shower with overhead skylights for a luxuriating experience. A long hallway flanked by wardrobes will take you to your main floor bedroom. The open staircase with views of the living quarters below features the same open concept that flows throughout the home. Once on the second floor, you get a closer look at the many architectural details that you see from below. A second bedroom suite with another dressing room and a recently added full bathroom has a deliciously deep soaking tub. This is a very special property that you do not want to miss. You can live (well) and work in the same place either full-time or perhaps as a weekender. There are so many possibilities - so bring your ideas, imagination, and dreams. No matter your work or play schedule, this property is only a 90-minute commute to Manhattan or 60 minutes to Philadelphia. Do not feel like driving? The trains are 20 minutes away and the Manhattan bus stop is literally right around the block.
