Few homes enjoy a setting as serene as this historic early 1800’s brick farmhouse. Tucked away on one of the most picturesque roads in Tinicum Township, you will surely find your Zen here. This was the home and studio where John Graham, Director of Design for NBC, created the original NBC Peacock. It will surely serve as an inspiration for future owners as well. Enter the drive and hear the rippling of the stream that runs the length of the property. Walk the brick path to enter the home through the antique door, into the light filled living room that boasts wide plank wood floors, open beams and deep window sills featuring Mercer tiles. The grand fireplace accented with antique Delft tiles sets the tone for cozy evenings, and the many nooks and built-ins allow you to add your own decorator flair. The kitchen, with leaded glass windows and brick flooring is reminiscent of a European cottage, and will be the setting for either quiet candle lit dinners or gatherings with friends and family. Through the glass door is a separate dining room that opens to gardens which could also serve as a study or library-the choice is yours with this flexible floorplan. The Master Suite includes a bedroom with skylight, a dressing/sitting room and full bath. Two additional bedrooms and a full bath accommodate family or guests. Up the second staircase is a bonus attic room. Visualize this room as an escape to read a book, pen your memoirs, or simply gaze out the dormer windows at the beautiful scenery. Importantly, the property is surrounded by woodlands and fields protected by conservation easements so views are forever secured. The original 2 story barn has open space on the first floor and 3 rooms on the upper floor. There is a 2nd floor deck that overlooks the property, where you can enjoy a morning coffee or evening cocktail, embracing the serenity of the nature that surrounds you. The barn space is perfect for a studio, an office?or both. A wooden footbridge spans the creek from the road onto the property with walking paths that travel through the woods, allowing you to enjoy your environment in all seasons. A short walk will take you to the Delaware Canal Towpath for biking or long walks, or to Tinicum Park to enjoy watching a game of Polo. The River Valley is not just a place to live, it’s a lifestyle! Ideal for a full time residence or weekend retreat, The Peacock House is sure to please all of your senses and be your escape, whether on a full or part time basis.
