With a name like Pumpkin Seed and a pedigree to match, this enchanting cottage along the Delaware Canal in New Hope, Pennsylvania demands your attention. The 1860-built home of Impressionist painter Mary Elizabeth Price until her death in 1965, the 2,000-square-foot three bedroom has been newly renovated while retaining much of its original charm.

With hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, a double-height kitchen with fireplace, three ensuite bedrooms—two with dramatic, vaulted ceilings—as well as wood paneling, custom built-ins, an expansive deck, and windows (some with window seats!) all around, Pumpkin Seed offers bucolic living amid views of the Delaware River Valley.

The artist, known for floral still life paintings, undoubtedly drew much of her inspiration from this canal-side property, which, located at 2472 River Road, seeks $895,000. Saunter along the canal path below.
