Property Details

On almost FOUR acres is a FABULOUS opportunity to own a commercial property zoned LIGHT INDUSTRIAL with a MULTITUDE of uses with TONS of history: medical, B and B, just steps away from New Hope Borough!! Positioned just north of New Hope and south of the historical village of Phillips Mill, its little surprise is that this 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. The property is zoned "LIGHT INDUSTRIAL" and most recently, the property has been updated by its professional designer/owner to serve a commercial/residential use. 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. There is a conference room with beautiful wainscoting and original 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, is an hour and 20 minutes to Manhattan and 60 minutes to Philadelphia!! An hour from Newark International Airport and just UNDER an hour to Philadelphia International Airport!! Square footage is just an ESTIMATE and seller not responsible for square footage accuracy. The cottage could be additional office/studio space but is currently generating income as a two bedroom two full bath cottage. Endless opportunities!!
