Description

Nestled in the picturesque, historic, river town of Yardley, PA stands the Knowles House. Built in 1854 this stately Federal style manor home with carriage house rests high above the banks of the Delaware Canal. The main house is surrounded by robust professionally landscaped gardens. An expansive front porch with mahogany floor and pine ceiling, and a large brick rear patio extend living space outdoors. Period hallmarks include high ceilings, tall windows, wide window, door and base moldings and original pumpkin pine floors throughout. A spacious dining room is located to the left of the wide front center hall. It is mirrored by a music room/living room to the right. Both rooms feature period fireplace marble mantels. Both rooms and the center hallway have been finished with wallcoverings authentic to the 1850's. The hall leads to a living room featuring the original hearth. The room extending to the right of the living room features cedar walls and floors. This space captures the morning light through large windows and is perfect for use as a sitting room or as an office with views to the wooded back yard. The large renovated kitchen includes a large separate dining area with three window walls and a cathedral beamed ceiling. Corian countertops, a 6-burner Gagganau gas cooktop with a separate Fisher-Paykel electric oven and a generously sized center island with storage and an overhead pot hanger rack are kitchen features. The original cistern, covered with transparent polycarbonate, is spotlighted on view. The 2nd floor which includes the master bedroom, with a closed marble fireplace, encompasses the entire depth of the main house. There are also two 2-room bedroom suites and 2 full baths on the floor. The front bedroom suite also includes a closed marble fireplace. The 3rd floor features cherry trim in the hallway, a library with built-in cherry bookcases, a large bedroom/living room/playroom with a marble fireplace, a full bath with a period footed tub, cherry floor and trim, and a closet room with 2 separate cedar closets and a sewing desk. The library could become the 5th bedroom. The certified dry basement with painted walls has been meticulously maintained making this an expansive play space or large wine cellar. Extended family or guests will enjoy the spacious carriage house air-conditioned private living quarters consisting of private bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. Large windows provide a serene view of the main house backyard. French doors at the rear lead to a large deck, a perfect spot for star-gazi
