Jewel in the rough, crowning College Hill! Peacefully sitting at the edge of Chestnut Ridge overlooking the Delaware River this circa 1900 Colonial Revival beauty maintains a graceful stature in the community of The College Hill Residential Historic District. Conceived as a grand single family home the property retains many original architectural details throughout the respectful conversion to a multifamily residence. The porte cochere is reminiscent of carriage arrivals, overseen by the bow front entry whose lines continue to the floor above. Expansive windows feature Gothic mullion flourishes, bring in copious light and offer engaging vistas. The foyer’s full height mirror, massive library replete with glass fronted bookshelves and fireplace, a Great Room has dual chandeliers and a sunny sitting area to enjoy views of the garden and River beyond are just a few features. High ceilings throughout, plaster ornamentation, and later 20th Century ‘modernizations’ combine to give this home its current Bohemian character. A Carriage House, rustic gazebo and an almost 3-acre lot that extends to the water add to the appeal of this rare property. Ownership seems to have been limited and the most recent sale here was over 60 years ago. The rental units, a studio and one bedroom apartment at the rear and two casually arranged units in the fore, can bring income or find a combination that works for the next owner.
