Recently transformed into a very inviting, very manageable Solebury Township property located between the villages of Cottageville and Carversville, this c. 1803 cottage was expanded over the centuries to become everything you need for full-time or weekend living. Once home to Eli Carver, a member of the village’s founding family, this property is appealing in every season. From the front porch large enough to host a summer dinner party to the perennial gardens that add visual interest from spring through fall, to the glorious autumn views of colorful foliage and the Paunacussing Creek, this is an ideal home for those who value character and quality materials. The main living room is the original section of the house and has a walk-in fireplace with a very efficient Jotul F500 woodstove that will draw you like a magnet in winter. With built-ins, wood floors and an exposed-beam ceiling, it’s a charming space able to accommodate multiple seating areas. A later addition houses the kitchen, dining area and a mudroom/laundry area, all finished in a timeless Saltillo tile floor. The kitchen is finished with wood cabinetry, a tile backsplash, bluestone and soapstone counters, stainless appliances, a breakfast bar and a casual dining area with access to the rear yard, the perfect spot for a grill and a firepit. The mudroom/laundry area provides access from the garage and the side yard where a stone border wall and fence contain raised-bed vegetable and herb gardens plus an apple tree and blueberry bushes soon to produce each summer. The first floor features a full bath. Heading upstairs, a studio/home office with vaulted ceiling has magnificent natural light and lovely views in two directions. The main bedroom features pumpkin pine floors, exposed stone, a pocket door into a full bath with a clawfoot soaking tub, stall shower and dressing area. A second bedroom, now used as an office, has access to its own bath. A loft hideaway and cedar closet complete the second floor. There is a generator hookup with service to the essential systems, including water and heat, a two-car garage plus additional offstreet parking and two basements for storage. Picture-perfect having been updated by two artist-owners, this home is walkable to Carversville village or just take a stroll outside your door, enjoying the sounds of the Paunacussing and glimpses of wildlife along the way.
