Most Unusual Rental: Room at the Top of a 38-Foot Silo in Upper Bucks

The folks at Mimosa Tree Bed and Breakfast is looking for a caretaker for its animals: a guinea hen, a swan, a potbellied pig, two ducks and two peacocks). In return for two shifts of care, each of which is 15 to 20 minutes, there’s a rental in the top two floors of a renovated silo that’s 9 feet around (speaking of “cozy”) and has a 14-foot ceiling. The first level has a lovely black marble topped-sink and a claw foot tub (with a shower) and a medium-sized refrigerator. The second level has an air conditioner and a double bed with a view of the farmland’s 20 acres.

“It is a very small private space,” says the listing, and at a total of 127 square feet, that seems a fair statement. But what a unique experience this would be, particularly as the apartment is accessed by a staircase on the outside of the silo.
