Built in the 1850’s, this popularity of this well-preserved farmhouse is a testament to its colonial charisma. The Wishing Well Guest House, a New Hope bed and breakfast, is up for sale. The countryside getaway features six private bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms plus a caretaker’s apartment with bedroom, living room and private bath.

With thick stone walls, beamed ceilings, and large fireplaces, this house embodies New Hope’s rustic charm. Meals prepared in its country kitchen can be enjoyed in the outdoor dining area. This space is perfect for summertime entertaining. The al fresco dining area is one of the property’s many gardens. One of those gardens features a gazebo with a view of Ingham Creek and the New Hope & Ivyland Railroad visible in the distance.

The neighbors of this quiet estate will often make an appearance, and you will also share the pristine wilderness that surrounds this home with local wildlife. Keep an eye out for often-spotted blue jays and cardinals.

This home’s live-in caretaker maintains the property’s plumbing, heating, electrical and landscaping needs.

The property is listed as both as a commercial and a residential property. Those entrepreneurs among us who’d like to continue running the Wishing Well as a bed and breakfast can purchase the property commercially, or a large family can buy this property and turn it into a private residence. (Or someone who’d like to have their cake and eat it too might consider buying it as a residence, sending the caretaker packing, moving into that apartment and offering the rooms to travelers via Airbnb.)

Grounds

This property is in the perfect location to take advantage of all there is to do in New Hope. The Raven, New Hope’s most popular gay club and resort, is only a short walk away, and this convenient location is also within walking distance of many galleries, restaurants, and the famous Bucks County Playhouse.
