    Description

    Nestled in the picturesque river town of Yardley, PA stands the Knowles House. Built in 1854 this stately Federal style manor home with carriage house sits on 1.22 acres above the Canal. The 5 bedroom/3.5 bath main house is surrounded with robust professionally landscaped gardens. An expansive front porch with mahogany floor and pine ceiling, and a large brick rear patio extend living space outdoors. Period interior hallmarks include high ceilings, tall windows, and wide window, door and base moldings on the lower two floors with the original pumpkin pine floors throughout. A spacious dining room is located to the left of the wide center hall. It is mirrored by a music room/living room to the right. Both rooms feature beautiful marble fireplaces, and both rooms and the center hallway have been restored including wallcoverings authentic to the 1850's. The hall leads to a living room featuring the original hearth. The room extending to the right of the living room features cedar walls and floors. This space captures the morning light through large windows and is perfect for use as a sitting room or as an office with views to the wooded back yard. The large renovated kitchen includes a large separate dining area with three window walls and a cathedral beamed ceiling. The kitchen features Corian countertops, a 6-burner Gagganau gas cooktop with a separate Fisher-Paykel electric oven and a generously sized center island with storage and an overhead pot hanger rack. The original cistern is on view and is spotlighted. It is covered with transparent polycarbonate. The 2nd floor which includes the master bedroom, with a closed marble fireplace, encompasses the entire depth of the main house. There are also two 2-room bedroom suites and 2 full baths on the floor. The front bedroom suite also includes a closed marble fireplace. The 3rd floor features cherry trim in the hallway, a library with built-in cherry bookcases, a large bedroom/living room/playroom with a marble fireplace, a full bath with a period footed tub and cherry floor and trim, and a closet room with 2 separate cedar closets and a sewing desk. The library could become the 5th bedroom. The certified dry basement with painted walls has been meticulously maintained making this an expansive play space or large wine cellar. Extended family or guests will enjoy the spacious carriage house air conditioned private living quarters consisting of private bedroom, bathroom and kitchen,. Large windows provide a lovely view of the main house backyard. French doors at the rear lead to a large deck overlooking the canal. A spiral staircase leads to a gym featuring a spa, Bowflex, treadmill and a wall-mounted flat-screen TV. The carriage house includes a 4-car garage and four additional storage rooms. The fifth room, the original stable, is currently utilized as a workshop. Both buildings have been completely re-sided in cedar in period style and are fully insulated. Renovations throughout the main house and the carriage house been have been in keeping with the original character of the house as designed in 1854. Start your day with coffee in the main house breakfast room, the patio, the front porch, or the deck overlooking the historic canal. Complete your day with a different choice~or walk into Yardley and enjoy outside dining at the many restaurants on Main St. Your home is an important part of historic Yardley Borough. Enjoy recreational activities on the canal path, the Delaware River or at Bucks County parks and historic sites. Washington Crossing Park, specialty shops, restaurants, cultural venues and playhouses, town festivals, local farm markets and the many wineries of Bucks County are nearby.
