Julia Broder -- Greetings from The Riverside Realty Group in beautiful Westport, CT! I am so enjoying my first week working as an affiliate agent with this great group of luxury property professionals.
Love to Look? Luxe Property Lovers . . . for weeks I've been helping you indulge your hidden House Desires. You love to look in on great properties, don't you? Well . . . who doesn't?!
My Luxe Properties column is your showcase for a new, special luxe property every week . . . luxury listings from the best independent boutique firms, of course! Learn all about luxe areas and beautiful residences that are for sale . . . ready for a wonderful buyer like you . . . then give me a call and we'll have fun shopping for your new home together.
Horse and House Country! Luxe Lovers, I'm taking you to the country, but it's "convenient" country, close to all the happening city life you crave . . . Bucks County, Pennsylvania!!! It's easily accessible by all modes of transportation . . . and my spies and I have scoped it out . . . just for you!
Get Away or Get Close! Looking for another luxe property getaway? Or perhaps you want to move and get closer to city action, with a convenient pull-back option each night or on the weekends. Look no further than lovely Bucks County, PA . . . driving distance from Philadelphia and New York Airports. If you're in NYC, you've got a closer commute than the Catskills, Berkshires, or Hamptons!
A Favorite Escape . . . Bucks County has been a favorite escape for many of the most exclusive and successful families. A Who's Who volume could be written about past and current notables, like . . . not to drop any names, but . . . Margaret Mead, Pearl S. Buck, Stephen Sondheim, Moss Hart and Kitty Carlisle Hart, James Michener, Oscar Hammerstein II (he and Michener buddied-up on the amazing musical South Pacific), Dorothy Parker, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Sally Jesse Raphael, James McBride, and furniture legend George Nakashima.
Always a Hub! This famed county is a hub for artists, novelists, screenplay writers, documentary and film producers, equestrian trainers, farmers, vintners, small retailers, and everyday people! The vibe is relaxed, people are friendly . . . and respectful of privacy . . . and the Pennsylvania taxes are low and attractive . . . think way less than New Jersey and far-far-far less than New York!
In Bucks, you'll find one amazing property after another! Want that special weekend and summer escape? As the top agent in the area says . . . "Here you will find seclusion and relaxation in a setting awash with both character and culture.” Well, let's go!
Never a Dull Moment: Bucks County is known for its quaint small towns and charm-filled villages like New Hope, Quakertown, Yardley, Newtown, and Bristol. Catch an art film at the County Theater in historic Doylestown, the Bucks County seat. Go trolling for antiques and fine art at the many shops, auction houses, and galleries in the area. You're a short drive to the giant King of Prussia Mall and many, many other outlet and shopping centers. Wineries, legitimate theaters, and winding country roads . . . with views of beautiful rolling hills . . . horses grazing in meadows . . . acres and acres of peonies . . . gardens you only dream about . . . all make for heavenly residential bliss.
With more than 100 top attractions to keep you entertained, the most-visited sites include Sesame Place, Washington Crossing Historic Park (yes, George Washington crossed the Delware River from Bucks County!), Peddler’s Village (outlet and specialty shops galore), The James A. Michener Art Museum, Pearl S. Buck House, The Crayola Factory, and The Mercer Mile -- amazing historic buildings and exhibits including The Mercer Museum, Fonthill mansion -- looking lovely in our photo above -- and the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works.
Action, Anyone? Great outdoor recreation abounds in the wonderful parks, as well as along the Delaware River and at Lake Nockamixon. Fabulolus for the outdoor enthusiast with canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding, rock climbing, hiking, camping, fishing, ballooning, and cross-country skiing! You're also a short drive from the groovy skiing in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains!
Everything . . . In One Place! Bucks County is ideal for romantic luxe hideaways . . . wonderful intimate restaurants . . . cabaret evenings . . . breakfasts at country inns and luxurious hotels which form your home base while you scout with your Realtor for that unbelievable great property to escape to! This is a destination for the rich and affluent . . . for any individual, couple, or family who want it all. There’s so much to do in Bucks County . . . or just do nothing and enjoy your fab luxe estate!
