Property Description

Live/Work/Play in this one-of-a-kind historic property right on the Delaware Canal towpath! Includes 1000 square feet of Village Commercial space! A unique combination of old world charm and a landmark location, 54-56 Byram Road is discreetly tucked away at the confluence of River and Byram Roads in Tinicum Township. minutes from Doylestown, New Hope, Plumsteadville, Riegelsville, Stockton, and French Town. The .7 acre home with adjoining spacious commercial property is 5 minutes (2.3 miles) from Ralph Stover State Park and situated across the bridge from Bucks County River Country. Outdoor recreation in the immediate area is both regionally well known and well loved in the northeast corridor--as is this private, ideally located historic property. Having once been the grain house for the Delaware River Canal, a French aeronautical engineer and his family made it their home--and also a much loved antique shop in the 1950s. It has been in the same family ever since. The 6 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 3 story, 3245 square feet home with finished loft is accompanied by a rectangular shaped income-producing commercial property with three parking spaces alongside the residence. With confirmation of all usage subject to buyer due diligence with Tinicum Township, the residence also allows a sole proprietor the right to use 25 percent of the residential space for a business serving one client at a time. Approaching the residence from the fresh gravel driveway, one is immediately struck by the wisteria-studded overhead arbor built above a river rock patio providing both shade breeze and additional privacy. Inside and to the immediate left is the first portion of a pie staircase and the first glance at an open kitchen leading into an expansive open dining room with wide-planked wood flooring and walls throughout. Pass through and notice a door leading to a small balcony overlooking the canal. Then enter the spacious living area, warmed by the presence of built-in bookshelves as well as a recently installed wood stove within a grand, old-world fireplace. Enjoy access to the terrace and back garden through French doors, while enjoying the juxtaposition of wood and light. Up the other side of the pie staircase, step on to pumpkin pine flooring throughout. The master bedroom looks out over one of the area's canal bridges and in many of the other five bedrooms one can wake-up to find reflections on the ceiling of the gently rippling water from the canal below. The light, culture and local color of Delaware Canal life is apparent through every window, including a range of natural life from bluebirds and wood ducks to frogs and turtles. The tiled master bath with luxurious radiant floor heating is spacious and full of light, featuring period fixtures. Carrying on to the third floor, one is remiss not to mention the ample and discreet storage space –in-built shelving and cabinetry--that is tucked throughout the entire house. On this third floor we have the fan that cools the entire house throughout the summer (when the windows are opened at night) and bonus rooms perfectly purposed for playrooms and an office. Offering privacy and prestige, as well as the highly regarded Palisades School District, 54-56 Byram Road is a lovingly maintained legacy investment with income opportunity, as well as a house for generations, both now and to follow. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Don't miss it.
