Back in the days when the thirteen colonies were drafting a Constitution in Philadelphia, Cornelius Ely built his new Boro residence down the street from Coryell,s Ferry. Nestled beside the vintage library and overlooking a long shaded street, this magnificent stone house presents the perfect picture of secluded in-town living with convenient access to the modern day world.
An elegant interior displays a rich tapestry of authentic period details: deep-sill windows, three working fireplaces, hardwood floors that glow with a patina that only comes with age. Thick stone walls stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Pass into a Great Room addition filled with windows and built-ins, that blends flawlessly into the landscape bringing the outside in with south-facing glass providing passive solar heat on sunny January days. French doors lead you onto a shady deck by a well-tended garden with hidden paths and stepping stones leading to a koi pond.
Privacy is assured and entertaining is a must! Rare for New Hope, you have a detached garage and off-street parking for eight cars, as well as public water and sewer.
