DR. COOPER'S COTTAGE. Experience village life in this quaint Bucks County stone & frame Victorian house perched high in the center of the river hamlet of Point Pleasant, once known as Lower Black's Eddy. Built in the 19th century by Doctor Cooper,a prominent area physician, this adorable cottage served as his home and office for many decades. At once rustic and formal, this true vintage gem possesses many charming, authentic features like the original Victorian formal double-door entry, 9' ceilings, exposed stone walls, wide plank floors. The gas-fired "woodstove" adds charm and warmth, especially as the chilly weather approaches. New stove and sink grace the country kitchen which, along with the rest of the interior, has been freshly painted. The picturesque wrap-around porch, features a delightful 2-person porch swing that brings to mind the rich history of the home and area. The large stone patio and garden areas, plus seasonal water views will fill the senses. There's also a back porch-turned-potting shed for those with a green thumb.
