Welcome to the Riverview Cottage! Exquisite custom-renovated home situated in the quaint Rivertown of Upper Black Eddy. The twin towns of Frenchtown and Milford across the river offer everything from fabulous shopping, art galleries, antique stores, and a fantastic selection of eateries. If you like the outdoors, this area offers something for everyone - fishing, biking, kayaking, running, hiking, and if you are very adventurous - even a day of tubing down the river. The home is just minutes from the towpath, offering miles and miles of scenic paths along the canal and river. At first impression, perhaps modest and unassuming, the outside of the home belies this fabulous property, and who doesn’t love a surprise? The seller is a renowned and published designer who bought this home to make it his own and spared no time and expense in completing his dream. The front porch welcomes you for a moment in the shade, and maybe on a sunny day, you can relax with your latest read overlooking the river and the slow weekend hustle with out-of-state sightseers. In building his dream home - the owner spares neither time nor money to realize his vision, painstakingly selecting the highest quality touches and finishes. Gleaming hardwood floors and a curved staircase in the open living room set the stage when entering. One large room offers an expansive dining area with an open concept that is so popular now. This room has exposed beams and a wood-burning fireplace surrounded by marble and beautiful woodwork. The random-width pumpkin pine hardwood floors follow throughout most of the rooms in this home. The gourmet kitchen is truly the heart of most homes, and so it is here. Sizeable white quartz countertops rest atop white floor custom cabinets and drawers with exciting features. A pantry disguises the many things that would typically clutter the counter. This gorgeous space also features the highest quality professional 5 burner gas stove, a stainless steel hood, stainless steel professional glass door fridge, and an oversized stainless steel sink. A professional chef would be delighted here. Plenty of natural light shining in from the many windows and French doors offer views of the private backyard and an occasional deer or rabbit strolling by for a visit. The numerous French doors provide a great flow for any summer party. There is room for a large eat-in table, perhaps an intimate candle-lit dinner for two, or an excellent spot for your friends to watch some new culinary creations whipped up while enjoying wine and cheese. A beautiful curved staircase draws you to the second floor, to a relatively spacious hallway with exposed beams, which leads to the sunlit spacious master bedroom suite with a vaulted ceiling offering a full bath. There are two additional bedrooms and another shared bath on this floor. The washer/dryer is conveniently just around the corner in the hallway. One of the bedrooms is currently used as a “work from home” office, which is a lovely arrangement with so many people working from home these days. This is a fantastic home for either a full-time resident or a weekender, and the commuter bus stop in Frenchtown will take you right into Manhattan. You are never far from all the major Northeast roadways to get you south towards Philadelphia (60 min) or North towards Manhattan (90 min).
