Nestled in storied Phillips Mill hamlet and part of the National Historic District is this unique property that is waiting for a person of vision to become its next steward. One of five historic architect designed cottages from the 1800s, it is in need of TOTAL restoration. On .67 acre in a wooded setting, with the Delaware Canal bordering the land, it offers endless possibilities for a serene retreat, artists studio, weekend getaway or permanent residence. Many renowned Pennsylvania artists lived and painted in the area. The cottage was once home to Helen McCook an artist who lived there. With vaulted ceilings, stone walls and wood beams, the house has abundant character and potential to be restored or rebuilt into an incredible home with English charm. The existing footprint and basic exterior look would likely have to be preserved and enhanced to fit the guidelines of the Phillips Mill historic district. Presently, there is a 9x11 entry foyer that leads into the 14x24 original cottage of stone and stucco. That area has a living/dining room that is open to a compact kitchen (with stone fireplace) and staircase up to a second floor spacious loft room that can be used as a bedroom or family room. Main level has a bedroom with vaulted, beamed ceiling, a bathroom area and a small room to suit your needs. An existing structure, 14x18, was added on and now has access from the bedroom. It could be able to be demolished and rebuilt in the footprint and would give a discerning buyer wonderful possibilities for creating an architecturally exciting interior while preserving the original design and feel of the exterior. This special property should be restored to its original beauty and ambiance and again take its place among the treasured historic cottages in the area. Located just behind the renowned Phillips Mill Inn, it is close to downtown New Hope and Lambertville with their art galleries, restaurants and shops.
