Just Listed: Creekside Cottage in Pipersville
This Adirondack-style house makes the most of its setting right beside a waterfall.
“Don’t go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to
I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you’re moving too fast”
—chorus of “Waterfalls,” TLC
After seeing this cutie of a house for sale on a spit of land wedged in between the Delaware Canal and the Delaware River a few miles upriver from Point Pleasant, I have a question for the ladies:
Here you can have it your way on a lovely wooded quarter-acre lot with a waterfall in its backyard.
The waterfall comes courtesy of Smithtown Creek, which passes under the adjacent Delaware Canal right next to this house. You have easy access to the partially ruined canal and towpath here as a result; just 30 steps separate you from it.
The backyard waterfall isn’t the only nice outdoor feature of this house for sale, either. It also has a large deck in front and a covered side porch overlooking the waterfall with steps leading down to the backyard.
This house is just as nice on the inside as it is on the outside. Recent renovations and improvements have kept it fresh and youthful at the ripe old age of 89.
It boasts beamed vaulted ceilings in both its skylit living room and its master bedroom.
The living room also has a beautiful fireplace fashioned from stones made smooth by the river.
Walls of windows let light and greenery into the updated open space containing the dining room, kitchen and breakfast room, used here as another seating area.
The kitchen got a total makeover that gave it granite countertops, white farmhouse cabinetry and all-new stainless-steel appliances. The light fixtures here and elsewhere in the house are outfitted with super-efficient LED lights, by the way.
The spacious master bedroom has a sitting area with French doors leading to the side porch.
Its updated bathroom has large windows overlooking the waterfall as well.
The house also has a second bedroom and a hall bath with a reclaimed vanity, and you can stash your bikes, kayaks and other outdoor gear in its walkout basement. There’s also room for a workshop down below.
With this house, you get a beautiful stress reliever in a sylvan setting. You won’t need that app that plays the sound of rushing water when you have a real waterfall to put you in a calm state. And when you want excitement, you could always drive, bike, hike or kayak down to Lumberville and New Hope.
So: ready to reconsider that advice about not chasing waterfalls, ladies?
