Throughout the month of May, visitors toured this 1791 farmhouse and grounds spanning more than 20 acres, which was redesigned by some of the area’s most prominent home designers and landscape artists. On this page, we spotlight just some of the transformed spaces that wowed.

Bucks County meets mid-Century modern
designed by Black-eyed susan | Holicong, Pa.  |  BeSusan.com
 “The living room of the ranch house had a number of interesting elements that were attractive; fabulous natural light from a large picture window being at the top of the list. The color I chose was teal, and we used this in the rug, art and accessories—the perfect balance for the deep-toned walls, ceiling and brick fireplace wall. The vaulted ceiling gave space for me to piggy-back two large sputnik style chandeliers at staggered heights, and this proved to be the main focal point of the room. The rug was a main talking point, as it is what we call a ‘performance’ rug, all synthetic and practical for family living. In the end, my goal was to put the Bucks County charm into an authentic mid-century space and come up with one of my hashtags, ‘#purestyle.’ I think we accomplished this and a new hashtag was born: #midcenturythiscentury.” – Susan Taylor, owner 

European Farmhouse dining

 “When we first visited the house we immediately were drawn to the dining room. It was a charming space with a magnificent fireplace and the room just had a great warm and intimate feeling to it. We opted to go with a refined European farmhouse look. The picture window overlooks some of the beautiful gardens at the house and we wanted to bring nature inside. The lush green landscape outside inspired the raw elements we used inside with the reclaimed cutting boards from Europe to the nature-inspired wall décor. The zinc-top table adds another element of texture with its beautifully hand-crafted base making it a focal point in the room.” – Bobby Huber Jr., Designer 

Country Porch & Wooded entry
designed by Bucks Country Gardens Doylestown, Pa. | BucksCountryGardens.com
The Country Porch: “The mood that I wanted to convey was a relaxed look. This porch was a spot that you would come to pot plants or arrange fresh cuttings from the garden. And after a long day outside you would sit and relax with a glass of wine and look out at the scenery. The teak and outdoor wicker furniture can be used as a potting bench as we have shown or a casual dining table. The basket lounge chairs are a comfy retreat from the day. The hanging buckets and galvanized planters and signs add an up-to-date feel to an old farmhouse.” – Donna Dentner, designer
Wooded Entry: “The mood I wanted to create was what I always feel on my woodland walks, a peaceful relaxing softness. I used masses of moss phlox for a sea of white when in flower, and to mimic the moss usually seen growing abundant in the woods. Pops of color are achieved with the different shrubs and planters along the walk. The planters were chosen specifically because they reflect age, have cooler tones in them, and along with all the green of the plant material, soften and contrast the house.” – Amy Sanchez-Hamilton, designer
