Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Upper Black Eddy - Raspberry Hill

3 Bedroom 2 And 1/2 Bath Home On Completely Private Wooded Setting

FROM PHILADELPHIA MAGAZINE, NOVEMBER 2014:

'Two cultural VIPs (from the Curtis Institute and Kimmel Center) bought this roomy log cabin in 2012 as an escape from city life. Then they gave it an overhaul, adding the perfect mix of vintage elements (an enameled wood stove from Norway) and new stuff (spa-like bathrooms, a private suite) for a gorgeous upscale-yet-cozy look. Lucky for you they're willing to share. Drive 20 minutes and you'll find Lake Nockamixon, antiques shops, and quaint enclaves like Frenchtown.'

***New for 2015 - Handscraped Hardwood Floors in the Private Suite***

Wonderful dense and soft carpeting in the main house bedrooms - 20 foot deck off the private suite apartment - Enameled Norwegian wood stove with masonry wall in the dining room - Two sink vanity with granite counter and under-mount sinks in the main house bathroom - Great new games in the living room!

Just furnished and completely refreshed in 2013, this log home has a chef's kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances and granite counters. The original handmade cabinets and built-ins have been retained.

The main bathroom is very large, with a claw foot tub and shower. There is a complete collection of bath salts and other skin products providing a spa experience.

While the whole home is newly furnished, unique antique pieces fill the property with character. The huge dining room seats 12, and adjoins the living room for perfect entertaining.

There are two bedrooms and a bath on the 2nd floor, a powder room in the kitchen and a private apartment accessed from back of the house.

The apartment has a large living room, bedroom and bath. There are queen size sofa beds in the living rooms of both the main house and the apartment.

Large flat screens are in the living room, two bedrooms and the living of the private suite. There is Wi-Fi service. A complete package of premium channels, sports and children's programming provides all guests with multiple choices for TV viewing. A Blu-ray player and a wireless printer for convenient printing of local destinations and directions caps off a most technologically sophisticated package tucked in a country log home environment.

Outdoors is landscaped and beautiful from all four sides of the house. The front yard is long, wide and rolling, with a park-like atmosphere. One side of the house has a raised garden, and the other a large deck with two tables and 8 chairs. There is a 5 burner gas grill on the deck. The back yard is wide and flat, with many visits by deer and a large variety of birds.

Extra features include a full size second refrigerator, and two pop-up picnic tables with built-in seating that each seat 4.

About Chuck Finch

I live in downtown Philadelphia in a 4 story townhouse built in 1803. I grew up in a family that developed property for over 100 years, so my love of interesting architecture and restoring houses is in my blood.

Chuck Finch purchased this house in 2012

Why Chuck Finch chose Upper Black Eddy

There is no type of property that offers such a distinctly warm and welcoming appeal as a log home. By updating the house without making it too contemporary, I think that Raspberry Hill has a unique combination of sophistication and rustic charm.

What makes this house unique

The outdoor property is vey private and quite beautiful. Although a log house, all of the technology you could ever want is available.

A++ place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
There is no better getaway for us then to have that feeling of being home but on a vacation at the same time. It has that cozy relaxed feeling of being in a home ,not a timeshare, which makes it easy to settle in and enjoy from the second you arrive! It's invitable just as much for a family getaway as it is for a couples retreat. Nothing was held back when it comes to the decor and spa like treatment you can enjoy as you pick from numerous bath salts and soak in the garden tub while you enjoy a beautiful view of the landscape. The area is full of sights and history with Inns around every corner that gives you lots of choices for dining or just stay home and prepare a family dinner and sit at the grand dining room table and eat on the China and antique silverware. We can't wait to return and bring the entire family!!!

Wonderful family gathering

  • 5 out of 5
Our family gathered to celebrate October birthdays at this wonderful house. Everything was perfect. The pictures are very accurate, but still can't convey how lovely the house is. The owner was very helpful with dining suggestions and answering any question we had. The yard is huge and was a wonderful play area for our granddaughter and our dog. We truly had a fantastic time.

GREAT!!!

  • 5 out of 5
The property was GREAT. The house was cleverly decorated, very clean and had all the amenities listed. The landscape was SUPER, lots of tall trees, flowers, birds, small animals and paths to walk on. The separate living space allowed family closeness and private space. The owner was VERY helpful before, during and after our visit, as one guest lost a hearing aide during the stay and upon contacting owner, the cleaning crew was contacted. I would highly recommend the property and owner. All the guests from 88 years old to 14 years old were very complimentary. We all had a great time and are ready to visit again.

Wedding weekend

  • 5 out of 5
The photos don't do justice to this wonderful retreat in the country. Looks like it was decorated by Martha Stewart and is more than fully stocked in every regard. The owner was so very friendly and available for questions, etc. The house and grounds were very clean and we were even invited to pick vegetables from the garden! Deer in backyard, as well as a plethora of birds at the feeders. Warm, inviting and we want to go back!!

This place was fantastic! A wonderful setting in Upper Black Eddy. Surrounded by lovely farms and lands. Great amenities! Chuck was great to work with for our stay. My family stayed here for my wedding and it was so convenient. Great for our dogs as well! Looking forward to our next stay!

In a word - AMAZING

  • 5 out of 5
This property is really something extraordinarily special. Located in beautiful Buck's County PA, near a scenic stretch of the Delaware River, it is one of the most serene and beautiful properties I've ever visited. From the expansive Eden-like outside lawn and gardens to the comfortable and tastefully decorated log cabin, the owners have not missed a beat. If you're looking for a place to unwind and soak up the quiet life in an idyllic location, this should definitely be on your "A" list. Enjoy!!!

Nestled on several acres of landscaped property, and surrounded by hundreds of acres of woodland and fields, your only neighbors are 2 horses and a red barn. Not visible from the road, the house is completely private, but minutes from wonderful antique stores, restaurants and state parks.
