A once in a lifetime chance~Here is a unique opportunity to own a piece of history along the Delaware River! This gorgeous stone mansion home was built in 1750 and is now for sale, for the first time to the public. The property is well known for being a popular Tavern and Ferry House owned and operated by Thomas Yardley, nephew of the founder of Yardley, William Yardley.~ After the American Revolution, Thomas Yardley built the northern 2nd half of the house and continued to operate it as a tavern and ferry house for Yardley's Ferry, the much traveled river crossing into New Jersey. This prime location is situated in picturesque Bucks County overlooking the mighty Delaware River. In its current state, the house has public sewer, public water available, and natural gas run up to the house (buyer responsible for tying in all utilities). A brand new shingle roof on main house with newly added dormers on the third floor to increase natural light and a new stylish metal roof on the parlor room have been installed. Chimneys and stonework have been rebuilt and restored. The house has been re-wired and re-plumbed to be set up with 5 bedrooms and 2 full 2 half bathrooms. Ductwork has been run through all three floors for heat and central air. Tons of original charm was maintained, including the wide plank pine flooring through all three floors and to-die-for stone fireplaces. There is still a lot of work to be done, but the groundwork has been laid to make this an exquisite home for the right buyer. This home does NOT require flood insurance.
