The grounds include 148 feet of river frontage on 1.4 acres with a full bulkhead and a boardwalk. 180 feet of riparian rights affords the ability to build a sizable dock to support large yachts and water toys. Zipping between the many boat clubs found along the Delaware River waterfront, unlimited activities are found on both the New Jersey and Pennsylvania sides. Pack up your canoe and paddle across the way to Neshaminy State Park or hop on your wave runner for a bit of river fun! Through the years, “Waterview” has taken on different identities…during her long life she has been a private residence, boating club and at another time she served as a gentlemen’s hunting club and retreat. Members came from the Mainline in Pennsylvania to enjoy hunting pheasant, geese and wild turkey; fishing for golden carp and shad…meals were cooked to perfection…after dinner it was time for a toast, dessert, coffee, cigars, card games, darts, a game of pool or a walk along the picturesque riverbank. From the multiple terraces, step inside the large center hall that spans front to back with its massive doors and views of the river, setting the stage for dramatic formal rooms and cozy informal spaces. Six original fireplaces are found throughout “Waterview”; two identical marble fireplaces anchor the expansive double sized living room; three stately Bedrooms and the Library each have their own. The owners of 50+ years are lovers of art and it shows. Easy access by car to Center City Philadelphia, New York City and the Trenton/Princeton area. The NJ Light-rail system is an available option that connects travelers and visitors to all. Property is offered AS-IS.
