Jawdropper of the Week: A Real Trophy Home in New Hope for $2.795M
It’s rare that a property fully encompasses what it means to be “the total package.” Normally, even the most beautiful home falls short somewhere – whether it be its price, square footage, condition, or some other attribute that’s lacking.
But this New Hope mansion known as “Paxson Ridge” just might be the needle in the haystack. At nearly 8,000 square feet and sitting on more than 7 acres of land, it is truly the definition of one-of-a-kind.
Even the exterior of the home was designed in a way to ensure that homeowners take nothing for granted. In fact, every side of the mansion is decorated with porches, decks, and balconies that let you enjoy just about all that New Hope’s natural scenery has to offer.
Step inside the two-story living room and you will be taken aback by an impressive floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. Make your way to the kitchen for even more delights: high-end appliances, granite countertops, and an attached breakfast room that leads out onto a covered deck. Also on the main level are two powder rooms, a dining room, a laundry room, a sitting room, a wet bar, and an office.
This house is already so impressive and we haven’t even gotten to the bedrooms yet, all of which are located on the second floor. The master suite is as ridiculous as you would expect – it has its own balcony, two walk-in closets, and an incredible bathroom. Two of the remaining bedrooms each have their own en-suite bathrooms, and the third and fourth bedroom share an adjoining bathroom.
The lower level has a game room, an entertainment room, and a powder room. With all this mansion has to offer, it’s safe to say no one will ever complain about being bored.
The Home Builders Association of Bucks and Montgomery Counties was definitely impressed by this home: when it was completed in 2003, the group bestowed upon it a Pinnacle Award for Custom Home of the Year valued over $2 million.
Paxson Ridge is a private estate situated on one of the most coveted roads in the area yet is just minutes from the hustle and bustle of New Hope’s Main Street. The mansion is a masterpiece that many will dream about, but only a few will be lucky enough to call home.
