Just as Hopewell Borough is so extraordinary among small towns in all of the USA, with its walkability to restaurants and shops and bucolic setting, there are houses and locations that are at the top of the list. THIS home is on "that list" in Hopewell! Many homes with such character in a prime location are owned by the same family for generations, as this one was, but now it is available and ready for the next lucky homeowner. The house has just been lovingly restored; treating the home to a new kitchen, 2 new baths, refinished floors, many new windows, fresh paint inside and out, even a new driveway to the 2-car garage! The kitchen is the heart of many homes, and this one has been thoughtfully renovated with cabinetry to mirror the original cupboards, rich soapstone counters, tile floor and modern appliances. Much attention was given to retain the pleasing feeling of the vintage of the home, including retaining the brickwork and creating a built-in "breakfast" nook. Right off the kitchen is the most wonderful screened porch with park views. The flooring and all walls were refinished or painted with LEED certified and eco-friendly materials, and all original stained glass, trim and moldings, built-in cabinetry and pocket doors were left to appreciate, just as they have been for the last century. If you have a need to expand the already abundant living space this home offers, there is a full, walk-up attic that has plenty of headroom, even windows, that would lend itself very well for a breathtaking suite, playroom, office or personal "cave" ? don't forget to check it out when you visit! Just as this home is a Hopewell "Gem" that you, your family and friends can enjoy for years to come, the Hopewell Borough Park is a "Crown Jewel" of our town. Study Hopewell Borough on a map, and you will see that the Borough is virtually surrounded by a greenbelt of substantially preserved land, and the Park is part of that buffer. And only steps away from your front door. And your back door! You will enjoy not only beautiful sunsets over the picturesque park on a daily basis from the very comforts of your home, you'll also relish the solitude and recreation offered by the miles of trails, the playground, and the Hopewell Volunteers Gazebo. We can't end this description without mentioning that much-loved Hopewell Elementary is a 4 minute walk from your door ? about 45 seconds if you cut through the park! Come quickly, this home will be popular. Appointment Only.
