Jaw Dropper of the Week: The Magical Maison du Riviera in New Hope

You simply can't (and won't want to) escape the amazing views of the Delaware River.

Back in November, we brought you the exclusive sneak peek listing of this stunning $3.99M-rated riverfront estate in New Hope. Believe it or not, that price was a steal. Officially dubbed Maison de Riviera, the mansion on the river is now listed at $4.195M. Let’s get into some of the details, shall we?

Enter the property through either mahogany security gate and you’re instantly impressed by the landscaping and hardscaping that surround the home. Head around back to the bluestone patio and you’ll be taken aback by the uninterrupted views of the Delaware River–they don’t get much better. Well, they do when you’re throwing a party on that very patio with an outdoor grill and kitchen while hanging by the stone fireplace. Or do it one better by dippin’ your toes into the waters–after all, the house has stairs that lead straight to the banks of the Delaware, and a retaining wall that’s above the floodplain to protect you from it.

While most of us could happily live on the luxurious confines of its outdoor space (we’d love that kitchen inside our home), it’s quite possible that the inside is even better. After all, beauty is on the inside.

The first floor features the master suite, which comes complete with his and hers bath connected via shared shower, which in turn boasts one-of-a-kind fossil marble slabs. The large gathering room features a coffered ceiling, built-in walnut cabinetry, a strong stone fireplace and looks out onto the Delaware River. It also flows into the swoon-worthy gourmet chef’s kitchen, which flaunts even more windows, a 12-foot island, leathered granite countertops and chock-full of designer appliances.

Let’s put it this way, there are so many windows and views of the river that you couldn’t escape it if you tried–just the way we like it.
