The newly updated Hopewood Farm, with main residence, a cabana plus art studio has been awakened from a long slumber by a just-completed renovation that has added an expansive, open kitchen and all-new bathrooms to the main residence among many other upgrades. Its best historical features, including exposed, repointed stone, pumpkin pine wide plank and other wood floors, a stone fireplace and exposed beam ceilings, were preserved whilst adding the conveniences that come with updated systems and mechanicals. At its heart is an expansive family room/kitchen/dining area with new gas fireplace, sure to be everyone's hangout space. White subway tile, stainless Viking, Kitchen Aid and GE Caf Series appliances and new lighting complement the white cabinetry, with all topped by soapstone counters and a farmhouse-style soapstone sink. The island seats five and also features well-designed storage. For those who entertain or simply want a beautiful space for everyday dining, take your pick. There is an area with a bay window off the kitchen or a second-story sunroom with skylights, picturesque views and a pass-through from the kitchen. Off the sunroom is a patio with views down to the just-updated in-ground pool with the cabana and art studio just steps away. The remainder of the first floor provides a living room with stone, wood-burning fireplace, bay window (possibly a toll-taker's window once upon a time), a closet (in case someone needs to use this as a first-floor bedroom) and French doors opening to the greenhouse room that runs on two sides of the house. This all-season, glass-enclosed space has a durable brick floor, ceiling fans and enough sun to keep your herbs and citrus plants happy through the winter. A powder room with oval porthole window and a laundry room complete this level. Private quarters upstairs provide a vaulted-ceiling main suite with four closets, new oak hardwood floors, an all-new bath with rainfall shower and two marble-topped vanities; a guest bedroom; and a new hall bath with tub/shower and marble-topped vanity. The third floor also has a bedroom with bath with new stall shower. On the lower level accessible from outside is an potential wine cellar or potting room, wired for a television and plumbed for a wet bar. The charming cabana has a new Dutch door entry and includes a full bath on the first floor, open spaces upstairs with a lovely sunning deck overlooking the pool and a changing room. The art studio includes a garage, new Dutch door entry, expansive natural light and also a deck for painting or relaxing. Spacious and open with an abundance of natural light , ideal for the work at home professional, artist complete with a full bath.The Paunacussing Creek winds through the lower part of the property, almost two acres so enough space for chickens or a few goats. Garden as much or as little as you like. Walk to the center of Carversville village to the gourmet general store or the tavern. Enjoy the many historical houses along the way, or head up a tiny back road toward Plumstead Township for a country byway stroll. As a family retreat or place to entertain, the re-enlivened Hopewood Farm is ready for you.
