1312 River Rd

Jericho Knoll, an impeccably maintained and beautifully updated 1870s residence in Upper Makefield, is waiting to welcome you with fresh, light-filled living spaces. A private drive leads you to this stunning home offering all the charm and serenity of historic Bucks County with 9 sweeping acres of open space, a creek, mature trees and flowering gardens. Inside, gleaming pumpkin pine hardwood floors run through the spacious and open gathering room with natural light flowing in from windows on both sides. The large and efficient wood burning stove adds both ambiance and warmth during those cold winter days. The spacious sunroom with a wall of windows offers views of Jericho creek, patio and the seasonal flowers of your garden, a perfect spot to watch the local wildlife lazily stroll by or to enjoy your latest read. The kitchen with the preserved original Mercer tile floors was recently renovated and tastefully updated with new cabinets, stainless steel appliances, sink and fixtures, marble counter tops and subway tile backsplash. There is also a formal dining room and a powder room on the first floor. The main staircase (there are two) will take you to the second and third floors; the second reaches the master bedroom and two additional bedrooms, one currently used as an office and the other as a sitting room. A walk-in closet space is next to a full bath. The third floor has two additional bedrooms, full bath and another walk-in closet/storage room. This home offers a very flexible floor plan both for living space and bedrooms and can easily be ~switched around~ to fit your personal needs. There is additional storage in the basement. There is also a ~hidden~ room there that with some modifications could be a perfect spot to store your collection of fine wines. The original barn offers more options for storage, room to house a car and with some modifications could easily be a nice home to a four legged friend or two. The outside has plenty of space for a game of baseball, a large family gathering or even to tie the knot with room for all of your guests. At the end of your garden is a sweet spot by the canal with a launching ~beach~ for your canoe or to sit and reflect counting ducks swimming by. Strategically located, Jericho Knoll is a short ride to New Hope and Lambertville and the bridge that connects them over the Delaware River. This home is also superbly located just minutes from major commuting routes including I-95, the Princeton Route 1 corridor and trains to NYC, Philadelphia, DC and Boston.
