“Don’t judge a farmhouse by its cover.” That’s the old saying, right? If not, it would definitely apply to this week’s featured home. On the outside, it’s pretty modest compared to some of the other houses that we highlight. Inside, however, it is a unique and modern space.

Of course, any conversation about this home starts with the silo. We talk about farmhouses every week, but most of them don’t have this most farmhouse-y of features. Like the rest of the house, though, what’s inside may surprise you.  Read more »

Farmhouses can be a fickle game. There are a lot of legit farmhouses in our area, but many of them are 200 years old and look like it. They just aren’t really livable in today’s day and age. On the other hand, there are some houses that attempt to look like farmhouses, but really end up just being standard homes with maybe a little bit of stone on the outside. This house in Old Wyndmoor strikes the delicate balance between the two. Read more »

Let’s begin Farmhouse Friday with a fun fact: this house was once owned by the family of famous American painter Mary Cassatt. And let us say, it really is a work of art. (Please excuse that terrible joke. We just couldn’t resist.)

With this week’s farmhouse, it’s pretty clear why it’s being featured—that beautiful stone exterior. This isn’t just a doorway or a small portion of the house that’s stone…it’s the entire thing, and it looks pristine. Read more »

The long driveway sets the tone for this secluded farmhouse on Tinicum’s Crowhaven Farm. With large expanses of grass on either side of it, one of the best features of this home is highlighted—the land that it comes with. The house has three bedrooms and three bathrooms and is 3,420 square feet, but it has 5.49 verdant acres of land. Read more »

This West Grove farmhouse is perfect for the horse lovers out there. As we’ve discussed before, we love it when our featured farmhouses have a bit of authenticity. This week’s has just that. For starters, there are over 37 acres of open land, woods and walking trails. There’s also a stream and two ponds on the property. On top of all this, there’s a 16-stall barn and a six-unit free walker. If you’re going to get the most out of this property, you better be ready to invest in the equestrian lifestyle.

Farmhouse Friday: A Legit Farmhouse Lives in New Hope

Some of the houses that we feature for Farmhouse Friday are essentially farmhouses in name only. They look like a farmhouse, and a lot of the time they’ll have a big yard, but there was never actually any intent to…well, you know, farm.

That’s not the case this week, and we’ve got proof.

Some of the photos that come with this quaint listing in New Hope are vintage pictures from 1935. One of them is of the house that still stands today, complete with a Depression-era automobile in the driveway. The other is of the barn that comes with the house. On the side of the barn in large block letters: “ALNA POULTRY FARM.” So, yeah. Legit.

Farmhouse Friday: Sit Through the Snowstorm In This Revived Quakertown Home

With Winter Storm Jonas descending upon the Philadelphia area this weekend, this week’s Farmhouse Friday entry looks like a perfect place to wait out a blizzard. Built in 1790, the revived 3,670 square foot home in Quakertown has definitely seen its fair share of nor’easters before.

This house really embraces the farmhouse aesthetic, with hardwood floors, doors, staircases and cabinets throughout. Currently on sale for $1,695,000, it has four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.

What stands out to us, though, and anybody else braving that Bucks County winter, are the fireplaces. There’s the original stone walk-in fireplace in the great room that serves as the center of the home, and there’s also a fireplace in the master bedroom.

Seriously, is there anything better than a fireplace in your bedroom? The answer is no.
