Some five years ago, Julia Altman purchased a farm property in Unionville, Chester County. The site, it appears, was meant to be her personal residence, but as she explains in a 6ABC feature from earlier this year, it quickly morphed into something so much more than a home after she took in a couple of dogs: “It grew and grew and eventually, we built this kennel here and now it’s kind of busting out.”

Oh, don’t worry. With the help of several volunteers and more than six acres at its disposal, Greenmore Farm (or Greenmore Farm Animal Rescue as it’s known ’round those parts), has served as a safe haven for pets and farm animals without a home to call their own. And while Altman is only relocating the rescue, let’s hope cuties like Brodie, HazelRemy, and Gus and Guthrie, to name a few, get adopted soon enough!

All that being said, wouldn’t it be great if the property’s next owners continue the operation Altman has going? It’s already set up to host dogs, horses, and birds (there are numerous paddocks, most with sheds, and several outbuildings), after all, so it’s not too farfetched to imagine another animal rescue thriving at the spot. In any case, the residential part of the property exists over a six-stall barn and has cathedral ceilings, mortise and tenon joinery, and a new gourmet kitchen and bathroom. Check out the specs and photos below.
