We know that New Hope is home to many stunning, one-of-a-kind properties, but rarely ever do we find one that sits on 92.7 acres of land. Tucked at the end of a winding driveway, this gated estate will have you in awe.

Cross Creek Farm, as the estate is known, sits in the scenic Aquetong Valley in Solebury Township, the municipality that surrounds New Hope and shares its acclaimed school district with it. The magnificent home at the center of the estate was built in 1992, but it has that timeless character of a classic center-hall Colonial.

The interior of the home is just as impressive as the land it sits on. Highlights of the main floor include a butterfly staircase in the foyer, two islands with bar seating in the kitchen, beautiful views in the breakfast room, and built-ins in the study. Formal dining and living rooms, a conservatory, and a laundry room finish off this floor. Read more »

Swooning Crowd Gets “Promposals” Banned at Bucks High School

Pennsbury – a Bucks County high school known for its elaborate proms – has reportedly banned “promposals.”

When opportunity knocks, you answer the door.

This seems to be the motto for the team at Northeast Philly-based Century 21 Advantage Gold, the number one Century 21 franchise in Pennsylvania, which expanded its presence to Yardley this April after acquiring a former RE/MAX Advantage office. The acquisition gives the company its tenth location in the Philadelphia metropolitan area and its third in Bucks County.

Century 21 Advantage Gold CEO Bill Lublin believes that in the digital age, consumers still like to see a company’s physical presence in an area. Accordingly, this acquisition will allow him and his team to dive deeper into Bucks County and connect with more clients.

“The Yardley-Newtown area is a very busy marketplace,” Lublin says. “[The acquisition] makes it very easy for us to service Central and Upper Bucks because we’re much closer.” Read more »

Hockey Dad Calls Late-Game Fight “Assault”

Last week, Central Bucks West and Ridley met in a Flyers Cup semifinal. C.B. West dominated the game, leading 7-1 in the third period. That’s when things got actually ugly.

As shown in videos posted to social media, a fight broke out with about seven minutes left in the game. People in the crowd were shouting “Fuck him up!” The brawl continued for a while, with one Ridley player even coming from off the ice to join.

The game was called at that point, and C.B. West was given the 7-1 win. A parent wrote on Facebook decrying the Ridley team: “Since he couldn’t win the game, he tried to sabotage our season!”

Now another parent of a C.B. West teen who was injured during the fight is calling it an assault. Read more »
