The newly updated Hopewood Farm, with main residence and two detached, complete guest houses, has been awakened from a long slumber by a just-completed renovation that has added an expansive, open kitchen and all-new bathrooms, among many other upgrades. Its best historical features, including exposed, repointed stone, pumpkin pine wide plank and other wood floors, a stone fireplace and exposed beam ceilings, were preserved whilst adding the conveniences that come with updated systems and mechanicals. At its heart is an expansive family room/kitchen/dining area with new gas fireplace, sure to be everyone's hangout space. White subway tile, stainless Viking, Kitchen Aid and GE Caf Series appliances and new lighting complement the white cabinetry, with all topped by soapstone counters and a farmhouse-style soapstone sink. The island seats five and also features well-designed storage. For those who entertain or simply want a beautiful space for everyday dining, take your pick. There is an area with a bay window off the kitchen or a second-story sunroom with skylights, picturesque views and a pass-through from the kitchen. Off the sunroom is a patio with views down to the just-updated in-ground pool. The remainder of the first floor provides a living room with stone, wood-burning fireplace, bay window (possibly a toll-taker's window once upon a time), a closet (in case someone needs to use this as a first-floor bedroom) and French doors opening to the greenhouse room that runs on two sides of the house. This all-season, glass-enclosed space has a durable brick floor, ceiling fans and enough sun to keep your herbs and citrus plants happy through the winter. A powder room with oval porthole window and a laundry room complete this level. Private quarters upstairs provide a vaulted-ceiling main suite with four closets, new oak hardwood floors, an all-new bath with rainfall shower and two marble-topped vanities; a guest bedroom; and a new hall bath with tub/shower and marble-topped vanity. The third floor also has a bedroom with bath with new stall shower. On the lower level accessible from outside is an office, man cave or she shed space, wired for a television and plumbed for a wet bar. For guests, the charming carriage house has a new Dutch door entry and includes a bedroom and full bath on the first floor, an open living/dining/kitchen space upstairs with full kitchen and deck overlooking the pool, and pocket doors to create a second bedroom or office. The other guest house includes a garage, new Dutch door entry, expansive main living space with full kitchen, a deck overlooking the pool, two bedrooms and a hall bath on the lower level and a fun loft with closet and bath plus a catwalk lined in bookshelves. The Paunacussing Creek winds through the lower part of the property, almost two acres so enough space for chickens or a few goats. Garden as much or as little as you like. Walk to the center of Carversville village to the gourmet general store or the tavern. Enjoy the many historical houses along the way, or head up a tiny back road toward Plumstead Township for a country byway stroll. As a family retreat or place to entertain, the re-enlivened Hopewood Farm is ready for you.
