Description

Hidden down a private road is The Eastburn Reeder Estate, a secluded compound with history dating back to the 1700s. The farmhouse was one of several former residences' of Mr.Reeder, a prominent dairy farmer & land owner in the Solebury community. Fast forward to the 1980s when the estate was converted into "The New Hope Tennis Country Club"- a place where many locals still reminisce of "the good ol' days". Today, after an extensive gut renovation, this historic property has not only come back to life, it has come back to market. Upon entering the farmhouse prepare to be wowed by the newly refinished hardwood flooring, exposed beams and original stone walls. The authentic details of this farmhouse have been carefully updated with modern finishes. Oversized Mercer tiles decorate two mirroring fireplaces which create a balanced Feng Shui atmosphere. The living room windows offer scenic views of the wooded rear yard and pool. Moving into the fully equipped kitchen you will find brand new stainless steel appliances, new marble flooring and refinished cabinets with generous storage space. Off the kitchen is the oversized family room which has brick flooring, fireplace and glass French doors leading out to the back patio. On the second level are three bedrooms, each of which are freshly painted and showcase original hand hewn beams. New carpeting and skylights enhance the modern finishes of the third level, making it the perfect space for an office, studio or lounge room. The Reeder Estate sits on five quiet acres, includes tennis & basketball courts and a private pool with views of original stone ruins. The property falls into the "highway commercial" zoning district (see Borough of New Hope Zoning Page for a full list of uses permitted) so it is ideal for anyone who wants to also operate a business on site. There are two additional unfinished structures which could be turned into a garage, in-law suite, office, yoga studio, workshop, pool cabana, etc. Not only are the modest taxes affordable, the estate is located within the highly coveted New Hope Solebury School District and just minutes from one of the best small towns in the country. With a wide array of potential uses, the "tennis club" offers a little bit of everything: history, location, charm, value and genuine beauty.
