About this property

Hortulus Farm, as featured in House and Garden, House Beautiful, Elle D~cor, Veranda, Town & Country, and The New York Times, is arguably one of the most spectacular private gardens on the American East Coast. Comprising 100 acres down a 1/4 mile long, tree-lined drive, this classic 18th C. Bucks County farmstead boasts absolute privacy, 5 ponds, a waterfall, and 30 acres of "world-class" gardens, including lavish Perennial and Summer Borders, a Woodland Walk, a birch Alee, French and Mediterranean Gardens, and state-of-the-art Vegetable and Herb Gardens. The main stone farmhouse (3,557 sq. ft.) has 4/5 bedrooms with 3 full baths and 2 1/2 baths, circa 1793, and looks out across Fire Creek and the largest pond, a happy home to swan, ducks, geese, and a fanciful, floating Victorian gazebo. There is an all weather porch with beautiful views across the gardens. One of the two huge 19th C. dairy barns on the property has a separate 2/3 bedroom apartment with 3 full baths and 1 1/2 bath and spectacular library/office space (3,260 sq. ft), the other storage for farm equipment and stalls for the farm's animals. As well, there's a separate 2 bedroom caretaker's home (1,394 sq. ft.) with 1 full bath, and a vintage corncrib, milk barn, aviary and chicken house. A massive circular swimming pool, the focal point and the end of the Perennial Borders, rivals most pools/fountains found in public parks. The overall property, which is in Conservancy, also allows for yet another residence with separate driveway. Hortulus Farm is an extremely rare listing that can evolve in myriad directions, The current stewards spent 40 years creating this masterpiece and now it awaits a new owner to add their own chapter to this truly one-of-a-kind piece of history and horticultural splendor.
