The genesis of Solebury House began in the late 18th century as a single home that evolved into a general store and then, over the 19th and 20th centuries, expanded into a home, an apartment and a commercial space. The main residence features a modern kitchen, fine hardwood floors with century old patinas, library, living room, dining room and bedrooms. The solid Chestnut moldings and book cases reflect millwork of the period and a warmth that cannot be manufactured today. A large loft apartment has the sensibility of a "Parisian Atelier" and is ideal for guests, relatives, an au pair or simply extra income. The second half of this amazing building is leased to the Solebury Post Office and is a source for many years of steady income. The lush gardens and front porches beckon you to read, have a cocktail and watch the "comings and goings" of passing visitors. The rear yard is splendid for al fresco dining on either the stone patio or the large deck immediately off the kitchen. Both house and Post Office are wired for portable generator. Solebury House is a rare find in todays market: It offers the charm of a Bucks County vintage home, the prestige of New Hope-Solebury School District, a choice for both residence and/or income property, but most importantly, it creates the lost aesthetic of lanterns burning brightly, fires in the hearth and a smile of every passing face. Interior photos to be shot soon. 90 Minutes to New York, 60 minutes to Philadelphia and 30 Minutes to Princeton.
