John Van Dyke Homestead-The genesis of the John Van Dyke Homestead was the very early part of the 19th Century. Over the decades, the home passed through a lineage that included Don Walker, orchestrator for Fiddler on the Roof, Pajama Games and Cabaret. Today, the property has gone through a total renovation that includes 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. Each room exudes the sensibility of a colonial homestead with modern amenities. There's a large kitchen with breakfast area, formal dining, library/study and a spectacular living room with fireplace and walls of French doors that lead out to a Wisteria draped patio. The property offers formal lawns for Summer croquet or old fashion bocci and mature plantings and trees that have watched the transformation of the property for years. The guest cottage with 3rd floor expansion area, is perfect for an in-law, Au pair or weekend guest. The current use as an artist's studio, clearly illustrates the buildings versatility. The property has an in-ground pool to cool off after playing a match at the newly refurbished tennis court. The John Van Dyke Homestead is 10 minutes from the bustling River Hamlet of New Hope, 90 minutes from N.Y.C., and a blink of the eye from a harried life to one's own sanctuary. Additional acreage available.
