A long driveway starts at the scenic Delaware River and curls lazily up a hillside to this circa 1800s pointed stone home set amongst 221+ conserved acres. Enriched by the totally unspoiled surroundings, the acreage is hauntingly beautiful. (Timber Value Report prepared October 2018 estimates total stumpage value of 182 wooded acres at $1,412,899.) Flowers, a babbling creek, verdant fields, and woodlands embellish the tranquility, captivating stillness, and utter privacy. Solidly built of local fieldstone, traditional and enduring beauty is evident in the 200 year old charms of natural wood tones, random width floors, high ceilings, fireplaces, and a summer cottage with infinite possibilities. Perfect as-is or well suited for a renovation, the 3-level floor plan offers multiple staircases, ample square footage, and a master suite with office, sitting room, and walk-in closet. The echoes of history continue outside where stone ruins and an ancient limestone kiln invite transformation into walled gardens. With a nod to modern needs there is a 3-car detached garage and automatic generator. A large covered porch offers room for dining, rocking chairs, and front row seats to views of your own land as far as you can see. Wander for hours on your acreage and you will be greeted by the scent of wildflowers and a symphony of birds. Hexental does not refuse to accommodate the 20th century, it simply and serenely continues to live in an earlier age. Although enchantingly secluded, the house is located less than five minutes from local stores and commuter routes, making it readily accessible to I-78, the Lehigh Valley, and NYC - but from your hammock under the trees you will find that hard to believe.
