Property Description

LOVE where you work AND live!! Need a home office? This incredible house has spaces for a couple of home offices AND a TWO bedroom two bath guest house that could be used for extended family OR a fantastic home office!! Situated on almost 4 acres positioned just north of New Hope (less than half a mile) and south of the historical village of Phillips Mill (north one mile), the possible uses include retail, light industrial, Bed and Breakfast, Medical, etc etc.... and, with the huge circular drive, large trucks can access the property with great ease. The property was built by a Pennsylvania Impressionist/New Hope School artist. Painter Robert Spencer (1879-1931) used its airy, light-filled studio spaces to create works now in the collections of museums and collectors around the world. Most recently, the property has been updated by its professional designer/owner to serve a commercial/residential use. With its zoning "Light Industrial," the property offers a plethora of potential uses!! Its plan is very smart and its finishes are top grade. With a fireplace with raised-panel surround and dramatic two story wall of windows, the studio/reception room could just as easily serve as a grand living room. French doors open into the formal dining room. A staircase leads to a loft with doors to second-floor bedrooms/offices. Behind the studio is a wet bar/butler's pantry with plenty of storage, a wine chiller, under-mount sink and stone countertops. A powder room is also tucked away here. Timeless in its design, the kitchen is finished with Quartz countertops, Viking refrigerator-freezer, Fisher-Paykel drawer dishwasher, Shaws Original farmhouse sink and custom cabinetry that fits the period of the house. A formal dining room, (now used as a conference room), is cozy with grasscloth wallcovering, wainscoting and wood floors. A second powder room and back staircase are nearby. French doors open to a study/second living room with fireplace, high ceilings and a triple window. Step through another set of French doors to a sun porch. On the second floors are four spaces that had been bedrooms that are now used as office/studio spaces, along with a full hall bath. As a bonus, there is a TWO bedroom TWO full bath guest cottage with fireplace, two private patios, and a bank of garages along with off-street parking. Recent mechanical updates include two zones of heat/AC in the main house and a backup generator for the property. The location is superb for access to New Hope and New Jersey. Come and experience the property where Pennsylvania Impressionist works came to life as Spencer, in 1916, formed The New Hope Group along with such luminaries as Daniel Garber, William Lathrop, Rae Sloan Bredin, Charles Rosen and Morgan. Property has DIRECT access to Route 202, an hour and 20 to Manhattan and 60 minutes to Philadelphia!!
