BUCKS COUNTY DESIGNER HOUSE & GARDENS

Hill Crest Manor on Burnt House Hill Road in Doylestown has been selected as the 42nd Bucks County Designer House & Gardens! 

This charming Victorian farmhouse has rooms dating back to 1808. A classic representation of a historic Bucks County farmhouse, the home is complete with an original horse barn, kennel garden tool shed, five acres of gardens and five acres of fields with beautiful stone walls. 

The home will be transformed by a team of talented professionals and opened for public tours from April 30-May 28, 2017. Be sure to attend the Empty House Party on February 26 and the Preview Gala on April 29. 

One of historic rooms, at the heart of the house, is now a spacious dining room with built-in, glass fronted cabinets and Mercer tiles embedded above the fireplace mantle. Guests can enjoy a full-width porch with double entrance doors and large windows and towering trees among the many outbuildings. 

Visitors will also be able to browse through the ten-foot ceilings and tall, deep-set, elegant windows of the formal living room and casual parlor and shop several boutiques featuring home furnishings, clothing, accessories and handmade crafts. 

This annual fundraising event is held by the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown. Proceeds from the Designer House benefit Doylestown Hospital.
