Edgewater Park, New Jersey, is an exclusive enclave located along the Delaware River, across the water from Philadelphia. From the quiet residential area of Edgewater Park to the thriving town center of Philadelphia is an easy 30-minute commute, making it the perfect place for those looking to live somewhere safe and spacious with easy access to the big city.

Edgewater Park’s waterfront setting makes it one of the prettier locations to own a home in New Jersey. With massive estate-like homes and numerous areas perfect for strolls along the river, Edgewater Park is a dream for residents looking to leave behind the city lifestyle. It has a crime rate far below the national average, a tight-knit community, and great schools. It is a perfect place to raise a family.

Many of the homes in Edgewater Park are stunning, but 415 Cottage Avenue, also known as Stanhame, stands out as an incredible option currently on the market. This elegant and historic Italianate home is a private, spacious waterfront property with extensive grounds and incredible core features.

Stanhame was originally built in 1854 as a summer retreat for wealthy Philadelphia residents, giving the home a unique history. While there are remnants of the home’s past throughout the house, a two-year, full-scale restoration modernized the house.

Still, you can’t replace the elegance of the past, and that elegance is evident throughout the home. Intricate paneling, wood finishes, gorgeous flooring, and dangling lighting give this home a stately look, as does the exposed brick throughout. There is an old-Italian feel to the home that is present in areas like the massive kitchen, cozy living room, and natural-light-filled dining room.

The home is a spacious one. There are seven bedrooms and six bathrooms inside the primary property, room for a family of any size. The bedrooms are extensive and roomy, and the primary one includes a gigantic walk-in closet that can accommodate a wardrobe of any size. From many of the bedrooms, window views gaze out at the waterfront setting, and throughout the home, you’ll find high windows that look onto the great natural scenery.

Stanhame sits on over five acres of land. There is a gorgeous attached pool, a greenhouse for the gardeners among us, and walkable grounds with gardens and a fountain, straight from the pages of a 19th-century novel. The waterfront setting makes for great spots for a picnic, and you might even catch views of the bald eagles known for frequenting the area.

Some of the home’s additional features include a climate-controlled six-car garage, a game room with a bar, and an additional separate residence with a one-bedroom, full kitchen, and a living room.

The home is a rare opportunity for the right buyer, currently listed at $3,250,000. It is a stunning residence in a beautiful waterfront area, with a rich history and easy proximity to Philadelphia.

“As one of the most exceptional properties in the entire region, “Stanhame” is truly a once-in-a-lifetime offering, rivaled by no other,” says Grant Wagner, the home’s listing agent.
