The New Hope estate designed by Earl Jamison, Peddler’s Village founder, is again being peddled. Kennedy Rose reported the 37-acre listing for the Philadelphia Business Journal.

Jamison built the main house in 1978, after his 1962 launch and subsequent promotion of Peddler’s Village.

He imbued the residence with the 18th century architectural theming, mimicking the use of the Colonial era aesthetic to unify his retail-entertainment-dining site.

The main dwelling, with three bedrooms and five bathrooms, is a reproduction of a period farmhouse. The interior features wood walls, exposed beams, and a stone fireplace.

The plot also holds a three-bedroom guest house, pond, saltwater pool, gazebo, and trails for horseback riding.

The current owners consider their time onsite as stewardship of a significant Bucks County asset. They said they would particularly miss the home’s “immediate sense of peace, majesty, and sanctuary for both man and beast.”

More on the current availability of the former home of Earl Jamison is at the Philadelphia Business Journal.
