Peppermint Farm will serve as 44th Bucks County Designer House and Gardens

Peppermint Farm, 2613 Hilltown Pike, Perkasie, has been selected as the 44th Bucks County Designer House & Gardens, the annual fundraising event held by the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown.

Dr. Sandy Homel, 2019 Designer House chairwoman, said “Due to unforeseen circumstances, a different property was needed for the 2019 event.”

Stone Ridge Farm, the original selection, in Perkasie, once owned by author Pearl S. Buck, had previously been announced as the selection for the 44th Bucks County Designer House & Gardens site.

Named for peppermint, the main crop that was grown on the property, the 30-acre Peppermint Farm includes a circa 1860 six-bedroom farmhouse, a two-car garage with a workshop, the base of a bank barn, a milk house, a former pool house and a storage shed. The farmhouse features unique built-ins, deep curved window sills, exposed beams, random-width wood floors, stone floors and two covered porches.

Bucks County Designer House & Gardens events kick off Feb. 24, with an Empty House Party. The Village Improvement Association of Doylestown will hold its Designer House Preview Gala on April 26.

Advance purchase house tour tickets are $30 through April 27, and $35 at the door from April 28 to May 26. Tickets for Seniors 62+ will be $30 at the door.

Most of the proceeds will support the Center for Heart and Vascular Care at Doylestown Health. Proceeds also will support the Central Bucks community through donations for those in need, organizational grants, teen and women scholarships and support for the James-Lorah Memorial Home in Doylestown.

Design, landscape and home décor companies are invited to participate in the event. Sponsorship and advertising opportunities are also available. For information, email or call 215-345-2191.
