BRIDGETON TOWNSHIP, Pa.--Set on an enchanting 98 acres, down a quarter mile drive through mature woodland on a quiet country road in historic Bucks County, River Ridge Farm is a treasure.
Once known as the Guggenheim Estate, now beautifully transformed and embellished, this gentleman’s farm is a quintessential representation of all that is unique to Pennsylvania architecture, overlooking the Delaware River from atop Chestnut Ridge Road.
The circa1823 stone home was restored in 2018,including a slate roof with snow guards,copper gutters,and downspouts.
Inside, wide plank floors span both levels of the home.
The living room has exposed stone walls, Pella windows with deep window sills, and a wood-burning fireplace.
The floor plan flows into the oversized kitchen boasting every modern convenience and top-of-the-line accoutrements.
Adjacent, the original summer kitchen is now a dining room,featuring a cozy Jotul stove and opening to the wrap-around blue stone patio.
The patio has a timber frame pergola with a built-in Wolf grill with stone surround.
Multipurpose buildings are positioned amidst the acreage.
A detached garage accommodates two to three cars, with an attached ATV bay.
The 1800’s stone bank barn provides multiple purpose storage,or a venue for conversion.
For the horse enthusiast,there is an indoor riding arena, stable with five stalls, tack room and two run-in stalls,and an outdoor arena with grit footing and split rail pastures.
Miles of walking and riding trails lead through the woods out to the cliffs overlooking the Delaware River.
This rare setting in Upper Bucks is a private oasis, yet still within easy driving distance to shopping, dining, and recreation.
