Gentleman’s Estate Perfect for “Geep” Cultivation
Have you met Butterfly yet? The adorable goat-sheep hybrid (otherwise known as a “geep”) was born in an Arizona petting zoo on Sunday, and, suffice it to say, has stolen our hearts. When we saw a photo of this Fieldstone farmhouse with sheep grazing in a pasture, we immediately thought about it would be the perfect place to raise more geeps. Or pygmy goats. Or lambs. (Or any baby animal, really.)
The gentleman’s estate, which has appeared in Bucks County Magazine, Traditional Home, and on the Bucks County Home and Garden tour, sits on 10 acres that include gardens, creek, ponds, stone spring house, and a three-story restored stone-and-frame bank barn with an apartment. There are also flagstone patios and a tennis court.
Built in 1790, the home boasts new heating and A/C systems, remodeled kitchen, and family room with 25-foot ceilings. Windows with stone sills and floors made of limestone and hardwood can be found throughout, and bedrooms are outfitted with walk-in closets and built-ins. Parking features include a new driveway with lighting and garage with storage.
