If your dream is to have your pick of seven bedrooms in which to have breakfast served in bed, you must consider this charming Victorian home. Or possibly, you may envision creating a sophisticated Bed & Breakfast catering to the carriage trade or simply a paradise to call home. Frances McCrea wanted only the best for herself in the 1870’s and now it is your opportunity. Located a few blocks from the center of Frenchtown, this stately home is a whimsical mixture of old and new, delightful and mysterious. Thanks to the work of a talented theater lighting director and a gourmet hostess, the McCrea house was saved from neglect and put back into service as a favorite among those visiting the historic Frenchtown area. A new owner can continue to serve the public as all permits for a B&B are in place. Just as easily, the McCrea home can become your home and the envy of your friends. The latest renovation to the home is a kitchen that brings a touch of modern-day convenience. When you are ready to entertain in grand style, a pair of pocket doors opens wide between the large dining room and the kitchen for a very dramatic setting. When it is time to retire to the parlor, simply close the doors and return to the clean-up at your convenience. If you are operating as a B&B, your family quarters are behind the kitchen and a full bedroom suite is in the lower level, away from your guests but within a few steps if you are needed. However, if this is your home, you will likely want to select one of the five other en-suite bedrooms for your own. Or, if you want absolute privacy, there is a guest cottage that is just so special. There is a large rear yard and a garage and plenty of off-street parking. A short walk will bring you to Frenchtown’s charming shops, fine local restaurants and the scenic Delaware River. Current furnishing are available for purchase. The guest cottage is currently rented and will not be available to see for 1st time showings. All sowings are accompanied by the listing agent. Frenchtown is located along the banks of the Delaware River on the Hunterdon Plateau, thirty-two miles northwest of Trenton. The first bridge across the Delaware at Frenchtown was a six-span covered wooden bridge built in 1841 on the five piers that still stand today, and the community is a gateway to Pennsylvania. Towpaths are now a popular biking and hiking trail from Trenton through Lambertville to Frenchtown and beyond.

Framed in a daring display of oak and steel, The Lodge is a modern-day fortress tucked away in the woods of Bucks County, PA. Perched on a ledge overlooking the Paunnacussing Creek, The Lodge was a new construction project designed to take full advantage of its site and privacy. Project team leaders, Patrick Pastella and Kanitha Burns of PASTELLA / BURNS (the luxury design division of their firm Alpha Genesis) sought to create a home that blends old world with new. The Lodge was designed to integrate the traditional Quaker meeting house’s long horizontal exterior proportions with uncompromisingly modern interiors. A distinctive feature of The Lodge is the use of steel and reclaimed oak throughout the interior. This bold and masculine aesthetic was deliberately executed and has become a popular topic of discussion in the Bucks County real estate community. The Lodge was awarded the 2020 AIA Award of Excellence in Bucks County for design and execution. The designers, architects and contractors blurred the boundaries between inside and outside to create an expansive indoor/outdoor living and entertainment space. The main residence consists of 5,100 square feet of interior space with an additional 1,200 square feet of multi-purpose living area. With numerous French doors covering all 4 sides of the building, the home provides a seamless connection to the surrounding nature. The ‘perimeter’ hallway design directs foot traffic to the outside edges of each room on the main floor to further facilitate entertainment by allowing intimate use of each room without disruption as other guests move from one room to the next. The Lodge is stately. The Lodge is sexy. To the core, this home is a country-side retreat fit for the decerning client seeking an escape from the rigors of daily life.
