New Hope Residence

This new Craftsman style home on Main Street in New Hope is nestled between the river and the canal. The porte-cochere frames a view of the stairs to the canal towpath. The small central portion of the house is reminiscent of the original cottage on the property, and the front porch has a wonderful view of the river. The entrance to the home is located under the porte-cochere, and a sunroom is above it. The opposite wing of the house includes a dining room with views of the river and the gardens in the rear. The master bedroom, which also has views in two directions, is above the side porch. Two additional bedrooms and an open stair are in the central portion of the house. This project also included a detached garage with a small apartment above.
