Philadelphia Home: Inside Nancy Levie’s Modern Bucks County Dream Home

In the grassy hills of Buckingham Township, a couple crafts a house where modern design, rustic touches and industrial materials create cool country charm—complete with an enchanted greenhouse.

In the family room, a qu­artet of seats showcases Nancy’s varied style ins­pirations—two Eames lounges; a tufted leather sofa from Re­storation Hardware; and a “very uncomfortable” Achille Castiglioni tractor-seat stool. N­ancy made most of the throw pillows herself, including the patchwork denim ones, which are now carried exclusively at Zinc Home + Garden. An old trolley serves as a coffee table; atop it are two of her countless collections: antique staplers and paintbrushes, the latter assembled in vases made by Nancy’s ceramicist father. The wood floor—salvaged from a 120-year-old barn—is a warm counterpart to the steel fireplace frame, a focal point dreamed up on the fly by Nancy, who scrawled the idea for its design on a napkin during a meeting with her contractor.
