Location: New Hope, Pa.
The Skinny: The Delaware River is steeped in American history, most famously as the site of George Washington's legendary wintertime crossing to surprise Hessian mercenaries during the Revolutionary War, but that didn't prevent a 1923 mansion from taking its architectural style from much further afield. Located just a few miles upriver from the point of Washington's crossing, this Italianate villa sits on 7.33 acres of prime waterfront, with three bedrooms, five bathrooms, a swimming pool, a pool house, and a 900-square-foot office with separate entrance. Fastidiously landscaped in the height of Tuscan style, this Italian-American estate is listed for $4.9M.
