Car: Necessary

Nestled just outside 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 wined through award winning fields of native and curated grasses alive with birds. 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. 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 provide a serene quite place to rest or reflect. The lovely and unique neighboring community, Bryn Athyn, boasts a magnificent Gothic style Cathedral and other Historical Landmarks. The quaint borough offers a world class museum and historical tours to the public year round. Every Saturday in the summer and early fall months, a community founded farmers market offers up an abundance of delicacies, crafts and music. This area is beautiful and serene with a gentle and inviting feel.
