Hidden on 12 acres in historic Bucks County, PA, the Prancing Peacock Farm and Gardens rests on an original land-grant from William Penn. An idyllic combination of open grasslands, fresh water, and maintained woodland paths highlight all four seasons of natural, northeast beauty. The property’s original stone farmhouse was built in 1683 and is nestled at the end of the 1/4 mile country lane driveway, as well as a modern yoga studio, historic red barn, quaint cottage, and signature red shed. The standout, two acre pond features a small dock with two adirondack chairs, as well as two benches resting alongside the accompanying cattails. An adjacent stream winds under the property’s numerous willow trees and includes a wrought iron bench for picturesque crossing. A rustic, wisteria and grape vine covered pergola, in addition to a gated, sixteen bed summer garden add to the whimsical atmosphere. Teal beehives are tucked along a narrow creek just past the historic red barn, that features a cedar shingle roof and artisan stonework. Eclectically colored benches and adirondack chairs are found in thoughtful locations across the grounds, along with unique bridges and various flower beds. Attractive animals enclosures, coups, and a signature red shed are home to the property’s peacocks, chickens, guniea hens, and goats. In addition to domestic animals, the property is home to deer, groundhogs, Canadian geese, blue herons, mallard ducks, and various species of turtles. Even within the enclosure of its surrounding trees, the property receives excellent morning, noon, magic hour, and evening natural light. All this available for outdoor shooting.
For interior shoots, the primary structure on the property is a modernly renovated yoga and meditation studio, originally built in the 1940s. The studio features two practice rooms with cherry hardwood floors, a deep palate of colors, a stone fireplace, and a wrought iron spiral staircase. Numerous windows provide natural light throughout the day, and overhead and floor lighting with controlled dimmers are available. Two half baths and a tiled boutique provide additional space. Climate control, multiple electrical outlets, filtered water dispenser and cups, and complimentary tea are also readily available.
