Welcome to the former Cat & Fiddle Inn: A one-of-a-kind property with over 600 feet of water frontage along the historic Delaware canal and 6 acres spanning scenic River Road. Remnants of an old waterwheel highlight the backyard oasis which is framed by extensive stone piled walls and walking trails leading to an original stone fireplace used by "canallers" in the 1800's. When watered, the canal provides a million-dollar water feature that will serenade you with its waters rushing down into the waterwheel's spillway. Patios, decking, and special garden rooms accentate outdoor living. The Elizabethan, half-timber style home, and property evoke all the charm of the English countryside. The Inn, operated between the 1930s through the 1950s, boasted such guests as Doris Day (guest books, original signs, and memorabilia adorn the great room). The sprawling, spacious property is ideal for entertaining and provides ample room for guest parking. Every room in the home is truly unique: the current owners have retained original features of the Inn including its whimsical stone fireplace, rustic living/dining room featuring post and beams, an "All-nighter" log burner, and tremendous screened porch to take in all the sights including winter views of the Delaware River. The refreshed kitchen is replete with the Inn's original dumbwaiter and the great room includes original built ins and reclaimed phone booth. The second floor offers 5 bedrooms (one is currently outfitted as a wardrobe) along with a second large screened in porch. The unfinished lower level (originating in 1885 as a bank barn), features windows and doors leading directly out onto the backyard. This level provides almost 2,000 additional square feet and is currently used as a shop space and storage. It also includes the Inn's former men's and women's restrooms and shower (not currently functional). Enjoy walking and biking along the canal towpath, tubing and kayaking on the Delaware River, and bird and wildlife watching in your own yard! Very low taxes and exceptional offering price for this one-of-a -kind property and location! See Agent remarks regarding septic.
