This custom 7000 sq.ft. exquisite home is located on River Road just 1.5 miles from New Hope with canal/ tow path access for biking or walking. Six bedrooms/ 4.5 bath with an air bath, 3FP and romantic views. A chefs paradise...Exquisite entertaining options.

The space

Contemporary modern design, meets Bucks County historic charm with 'Earth kind', green building techniques and concepts. State of the art appliances and fixtures help set the stage for an enchanting taste of what is possible in a presentation of well done European minimalist luxury.

Sun soaked rooms, most with nature views, invite the outside in from mostly uncovered large windows. Continuous refreshed room painting, modern art, area rugs and select precious Italian furnishings keep the edge on embraced excellence in this one of a kind beautiful modern canal mansion. I will be releasing new dramatic pictures with the many upgrades and changes in fall of 2016.

My friends and I have stayed at Aura's place a number of times, and it never disappoints! The house is beautiful and impeccably furnished. It's a great escape from the city and we will hopefully be back again soon!

It doesn't get any better than this. I pity the poor folks who get stuck at the Ritz Carlton. Aura is outstanding in every respect. We stayed for a long weekend for our son's weekend. 100% positive experience.

Aura's place is spacious, clean, and with all the modern amenities you could only dream of! The pictures on the Airbnb site really don't do this place justice. My friends and I stayed for a night to celebrate my sister. The house was close enough to town to walk/ride bikes (we had the option of using 6 bikes from the property) along the canal, or take a quick cab ride. Although it was close to town, you felt worlds away. We were greeted by Aura's sweet friend, Sharon, who showed us the house. Sharon was available to us via phone for any questions we had. There were more than enough places for us to sleep, and enough bathrooms for 14 women to get ready in! Would highly recommend Aura's place to anyone looking for some luxurious peace and quiet.

We stayed at Aura's glass and marble "palace" on a hot summer weekend for a family gathering for my moms 85th birthday. (Ok, idk if there's marble- certainly granite, bamboo, tile... regardless, the place is off the charts gorgeous!) we used the kitchen a lot- the gas range is professional grade with an inside grill. It's outfitted with excellent knives, cookery, etc. Bring your own food and condiments. We brought fresh herbs from our own gardens- she also has some potted herbs on the patio, which we didn't use. There are multiple eating spots- counter with 4 stools, a table in the kitchen (set for 6 but expands), the patio off the kitchen, or you can carry everything to the grande dinning room a few rooms away which we did for evening meals. The first floor bedrooms are suitable for older guests so they don't have to do stairs. Mom uses a cane. We brought a bedside commode and were glad for it for two reasons. The master bedroom is massive and Mom would have been disoriented in the middle of the night finding her way to a toilet. It was an added bonus for the shower- which is so large I was able to place the commode in there as a bathing chair. The hand shower allowed her to bathe independently. She was thrilled that she could enjoy that pretty stone shower and all the glorious light streaming in, despite her mobility challenges. That bathroom has a door to the outside where I could easily set the commode for drying out in the open air and sunlight. Another tip if you travel with someone who needs to wear compression socks- bring clean "indoor" shoes. Aura graciously made an exception to the "no shoes" policy for Mom. The floors would have been very slippery for stocking feet. They feel **wonderful** to your bare feet and the rest of us happily complied with the policy. Lots of windows and outdoor seating areas to observe nature make this place feel remote. But it's just 2 minutes (driving) to the cute market in Stockton and about 8 min to New Hope. We wanted to go for a bike ride, but didn't fit it in- very nice to have the bike option tho. We had a fabulous time. Aura was very responsive with questions. Our only regret is it was all over too soon.
