The Umpleby House

New Hope, PA   Offered for sale at $2,295,000

Named as one of “America’s Favorite Towns” by Travel and Leisure magazine, New Hope Pennsylvania is a beautiful village with a long and storied history. Located just an hour from Philadelphia, 90 minutes to NYC and half an hour from Princeton, New Hope is a wonderful location for those that like the convenience of being able to walk into a vibrant hub of shopping, restaurants and galleries but retain the relaxing feel of village life. The Umpleby house, named after William Umpleby, a local mill owner, is an elegantly refined building built on a pre-war foundation and served as headquarters for General Washington’s Army for six years. A Victorian-era addition was added to the rear in the late 1880s by owner Colonel Buckley. The current owners purchased and renovated Umpleby House in 1985, converting it to the eight suite upscale, luxury inn that it is now. They also added the fanciful three-tier Victorian porches in 2001. A classic front entry welcomes you to the eight guest suites of the manor home each with ensuite baths, climate control and freestanding fireplaces for an extra cozy atmosphere. All of the historic craftmanship desired by the discerning clientele is evident, nine foot ceilings, deep handcrafted moldings, random width hardwood floors, refitted antique lighting fixtures, tall double hung windows with deep window wells and other historic details. Beautifully decorated by the talented owner and local artists, the guest suites combine elegance with homey touches that keep guests returning year after year. The country style kitchen is expansive and fully functional and a caretakers apartment in the basement assures 24 hour attention to the property’s needs. Just a few steps away is the 523 Square Foot Carriage House which overlooks the beautiful rear yard. This popular suite features a main floor living area with woodstove and a full bath and a second floor bedroom with large balcony. An attractive two car detached barn/garage is perfect for the company vehicle as well as storage or a possible workshop. The meticulously tended grounds provide a wonderful place to relax or a photogenic backdrop for a variety of events such as family reunions, weddings or corporate gatherings. With its prime location, great ambience, historic significance and successful business history, the Umpleby House is an unbeatable opportunity for the B&B buyer.
