    Description

    THE KNOWLES HOUSE. Charm, elegance and grace define The Knowles House. The main house and the carriage house; c.a.1854; as the ~Grande dame~ of Yardley Boro; stands proudly, some distance from the road and high up from the Delaware canal banks. The property is a prime example of Federal style with its sophisticated symmetry, modified with projecting wings and detached dependencies. The grand front porch is your first step back in time to this distinguished property with its imposing columns, gorgeous mahogany floors and pine ceilings. Knowles Manor has been stunningly restored by its current owners while safeguarding its historic details: a stately period grand staircase, floor to ceiling windows, imposing ceiling heights, intricate mill work, extensive moldings and wide plank pumpkin pine floors throughout. The large center hall is flanked by the formal dining room and the parlor/ music room, both adorned by their original marble fireplace mantels, an illustration of the elegant symmetry exemplary of the Federal Period. The living room features the original brick fireplace and a dedicated space ideal as a study, office. Adjacent, a gorgeous sitting room with cedar walls and floors let you takes the outside in. .This beyond gourmet kitchen is sure to please the most discriminating chef; with premier appliances: 6 burners gaggenau cook top, Fisher Paykel built in professional oven, double sink, expansive center island and walls of cabinets. The original cistern, showcased by a see-through panel, is sure to become a conversation piece. Adjacent, the sun-drenched breakfast room with walls of windows and cathedral ceilings offer four seasons stunning views of the gardens. The second floor preserves its period, timeless details: original floors, imposing windows and intricate details abound. The master bedroom features the original marble mantel fireplace. Two additional bedrooms with 2 baths with private second staircase complete the second floor. The expansive third floor will surprise you with its classic cherry wood built-in bookcases library, a large bedroom with marble mantel fireplace. A sewing room with large cedar closets and a full bath complete the third floor. The basement has been waterproof certified and fully repainted. A Generac whole house generator was recently installed. It also features wine racks to accommodate your wine collection.The Carriage house, historically used as the barn, now comprises of a 4 car garage, an impressive, fully equipped apartment with 1 bedroom suite and bathroom, open floor plan kitchen and feature large windows, cathedral ceilings, air conditioning and a canal side balcony.

This unique separate apartment is the ultimate space for multigeneration applications, your extended family, caretaker, or additional guests. The barn has been meticulously renovated with historically correct durable and treated cedar siding.
