Gorgeous riverfront Estate on 7.93 acres, complete with $100,000 in residual income. After a scenic journey down a long private wooded road (of additional acreage not included the 7.93) you will pull up to the absolutely stunning stone mansion built in 1857 and lovingly maintained throughout the years. From the Doylestown Moravian Tile Works detailing in the fireplace, to the hand milled moldings, the owner's attention to detail is unparalleled. You'll have your choice of morning coffee on the stunning front porch, lunch on the deck over the water or simply floating in the riverside pool. The Grand staircase centers the 300 square foot foyer which leads to the living room, Parlor, Main dining room, breakfast room, kitchen and office. This impressive estate is complete with 12'6" ceilings, 10' pocket doors, hardwood flooring throughout, multiple fireplaces, Library, Butler's pantry, 2 staircases, 7 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, 5 additional rooms on the third floor and a plethora of handcrafted woodwork. The large windows throughout allow an abundance of natural light into the home and breathtaking water views from almost every room. You won't believe the detail and care put into this home! The partially finished walkout basement boasts a recreation room with pool table on one side and the other side, with its beautiful stone arches, would make an incredible wine cellar. In addition to the main house, this estate includes a 3BR/2BA River house with two decks, a dock on the water and an in-ground pool, a Carriage house with four 2BR/1BA apartments, a 2BR/1BA Cottage and a Barn. Not including the main house, these 6 additional units net $100,000 annually.

While living in this dream home may on the surface seem impossible, the rental opportunity makes living here a much more attainable reality. Come see the endless possibilities here on the river.
