Bucks County can be a get-away paradise, serving as a retreat for restless Philadelphians tired of empty fast food bags bumping along city streets like urban tumbleweeds. The exhaust from the cars, the honking, the raised middle finger—a trip to 608 square miles of peace and quiet can be rather relaxing.
And there’s little Bucks County does better than farmhouse estates. This classic 1820s example on 25 acres “sits high on a South facing hillside overlooking rolling meadows, a pond and picturesque countryside”—which is basically the eau de parfum de Bucks. The 6 bedroom home listed at $1,695,000 has trappings of ye olde farme existence, including the very desirable random-width floors and four fireplaces, and if you don’t decide to put a kettle on in one of the fireplaces, you’re just not thinking straight.
Like the little Winterthur (aka Min Win, not to be confused with a Min Pin), this property also has room for visitors, namely a 1 bedroom guest cottage. Guests can bring a car (there’s a three-car garage) or horses (there’s a bank barn with numerous horse stalls) and enjoy a cooling dip in the pool.
