Experience village life in this quaint Bucks County stone & frame Victorian house perched high in the center of the river hamlet of Point Pleasant, once known as Lower Black’s Eddy. Built in the 19th century by Doctor Alfred Cooper, a prominent area physician, the cottage served as his home and office for many years.
At once rustic and formal, this true vintage gem possesses many charming, authentic features like the original Victorian formal double-door entry, exposed stone walls, wide plank floors, 9’ ceilings and much more. The gas fired “woodstove,” adds charm and warmth in winter. A new stove and sink grace the country kitchen, which, along with the rest of the interior, has been freshly painted. The picturesque wrap-around porch features a delightful 2-person porch swing that brings to mind the rich history of the home and the area. The large stone patio and garden area, highlighted by seasonal water views will fill the senses. For those with a green thumb, the back porch-turned-potting shed is just waiting for your spring and summer planting activities.
All year-round or just for easy weekend getaways, come, breathe the river air, feel the river energy and enjoy the river-town lifestyle and scenic beauty. River life offers many recreational activities: nearby boat access for kayaking or tubing, towpath for hiking and biking, or walks to the state park, village antique shops, and general store. Close to the quaint and nearby NJ river towns, New Hope and Doylestown area restaurants and shopping. Or . . . commute to Princeton, NYC or Philadelphia. Listed on the National Register of historic places, the village of Point Pleasant that began as a native American Lenni-Lenape village has a long and storied history, closely linked to the river and canal.
