    Description

    Welcome to Claws and Laurel Farm. The home is located just minutes from the Historic Town of Frenchtown and the Delaware River. This property is perfect for the discerning buyer tired of the big city hustle and yearning to experience fresh air and green grass under their feet again, maybe even becoming a gardener - how about growing your own tomatoes and chasing some chickens? Miles and miles of walking/biking/horse trails, fishing, kayaking, cycling or just walking man?s best friend - everything you need for a happy, healthy life is close by. In its heyday, many known actors and actresses roamed the property and it was a place of intellectuals and play - look carefully and you will see signs of their presence still there. Today, enjoy the tranquility of the property which is surrounded by preserved and protected State land, very quiet and peaceful. The home offers 18 private acres and situated in a parklike setting with sun-drenched lush meadows, fruit trees, and woods. The long private driveway leads you home - the original home was built as early as 1767 and have been in the same family for 70 years. The heart of the home is the large eat-in kitchen and family room with random width pumpkin pine floors, an exposed wood-beamed ceiling, a brick wood-burning fireplace, and hand-painted cabinets that create an inviting, warm atmosphere. The formal dining room is spacious enough for a large celebration for most of the family but intimate enough for a candlelit romantic dinner for two. The formal living room offers another wood-burning fireplace flanked by built-in cabinets and hardwood floors. A powder room is also located on this floor. Traditional for the time period, there are two staircases leading to the second floor, which offers two bedrooms that share a full bath. The master bedroom suite features a small dressing room, a wood-burning stove, and a full bath. There is also a third story walkup, floored attic, perfect as an office or media room. There is a small guesthouse which the current owner is using as an office but could easily be redesigned and decorated as a sweet guest cottage with its own little fenced-in garden. The large bank barn is a wonderful addition to this home and is currently housing a one-bedroom caretaker apartment. A two-story grand hall in the middle of the barn was at one time used for performances - everything from dancers to trapeze artists and is a very cool and interesting spot for a large bash or a wedding. This property has tons of potential and beauty - easily able to be reconfigured and redesigned to suit your preferences and needs. The location offers everything you need for everyday life nearby, including local theatre companies, art galleries, post office, grocery stores, antique stores, auction houses, museums, and of course award-winning restaurants. Conveniently located for your commute if you can?t work from home - NYC is about 90 minutes by car and Philly is 60 minutes the other way with most NE connections for trains and buses nearby.
