New Hope’s $1.5 Million Painted Lady
It’s rare to find a painted lady so far afield from the usual local spots like Cape May and Lansdowne. Rarer still to find one sitting solitarily on such an enormous plot of land. And this one doesn’t disappoint: the interior is exactly as festooned as the exterior.
The home is situated on five acres of land and is accessed via a long, tree-lined drive. The curb appeal (in this case the tree-lined drive appeal) is instantly apparent to fans of Victorian architecture. Details are reproductions but they include lots of gingerbread embellishments, wrap-around porches, turrets and dormers. Inside, there are leaded glass transoms and millwork galore. For real Victorian fans, there is also a series of ornate wallpaper selections and plenty of brocade. Upstairs rooms are somewhat less bed-and-breakfasty. Bedrooms are large and feature views of the pristine landscaping.
Out back there are a deck and gazebo adjacent to the saltwater pool and hot tub. A two-car garage also sits on the property.
