You know the old saying, “a penny for your thoughts,” that’s used to ask someone what exactly they’re thinking about? Well, we don’t need to ask you what you’re thinking as you look at these pictures because we think we already know: You’re in love. With Penny Pot Farm, that is.

Located in Upper Makefield Township, this 25.7-acre farm and abode is settled in the dreamy countryside of Bucks County, with lush green views surrounding you. But perhaps what makes this property so characteristically lovable is the history it holds. Built in two parts in 1807 and 1833, the historic Wiggins double bank barn provides full stable facilities for seven as well as a workshop, allowing those with a horse-loving spirit to cultivate their passion on this large property.

The main farmhouse is a stone- and cedar-sided reproduction, but it has that authentic Pennsylvania farmhouse style, and the owner has invested more than $1.5 million into bringing it up to modern standards of luxury and comfort.

Just inside the front door, you’ll find a foyer with stone floors. To your right as you enter the foyer is the living room, a classic space adorned with a large wood-burning fireplace (one of three in the home), and windows overlooking the front of the property; you’ll be feeling at home in no time in this cozy area. Behind the living room is a sunny breakfast room with views of the greenery and outdoor access through a pair of sliding glass doors. Next to the breakfast room is a gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and cherry cabinetry that provides ample space for cooking.

On the other side of the kitchen, a door leads you into the great room. With an incredible stone and wood fireplace, beamed ceiling, and bay window overlooking the front yard, this space defines country living. The great room is completely open to the adjacent dining room, whose glass solarium rear wall floods the entire space with light.

Rounding out the main floor are a laundry room as well as a wood-paneled library with built-in bookshelves, desk and a sweet window seat that can be used to study on, or just enjoy a good book for pleasure.

Upstairs, a master bedroom with exposed wood beams, hardwood floors, and an electric fireplace makes for an intimate setting. The master suite also includes an additional sitting room as well as a master bath with fine touches. You’ll also find three additional bedrooms on this floor, all nicely sized with plenty of windows.

Downstairs, in the partially finished walk-out basement, you have a full bath and room for an in-law suite as well, with the potential for space for both you and your guests.

With all these outstanding features, you are sure to find that Penny Pot Farm is really the gold-filled pot at the end of a luxurious rainbow.
