          Car: Necessary

          Nestled in the beautiful community of Bryn Athyn, our home is located in the middle of a 1000 acre Pennypack Trust nature conservancy with miles of hiking trails that ramble through award winning field of native and curated grasses alive with birds. The community boasts a magnificent European style Bryn Athyn Cathedral. Its quaint town offers restaurants and a community based farmers market on Saturdays in the Summer months. We call our home 'The Creek' as the Pennypack Creek passes through the property. We enjoy hours walking along this watershed - one of the oldest and most important in the area. Ancient rock formations line the creek bed and serve as sitting posts and stair steps for us. Our property is part of a small community of homes originally established by one of the leading Pennsylvania Impressionists Joseph Pearson III of the early 1900's. Indeed, we feel as if we are living in one of his beautiful paintings as he crafted the landscape and the stone walls, all constructed from creek rock. It is a beautiful and serene place with a gentle and inviting attitude.
