16 Park Drive East, Ottsville, Pa.

The Ottsville property at 16 Park Drive East has all the essentials of a bucolic Bucks County life, perfect for a city slicker from any metropolitan area to ditch it all, get his or her hands dirty, and make a go of an agribusiness. And all that opportunity comes without an inept handyman; a dim set of onsite contractors; an unethical, interfering real estate peddler; and a muddled county agricultural agent.

This fourth-generation operating farm occupies two parcels, totaling more than 80 green acres.

The farmhouse has a modernized living room that is absent a television-watching pig hogging the set.

The kitchen — one of two in the home — is well equipped for making, serving, and eating favorites like “hots cakes” for breakfast.

Although the property fits someone who has left a high-profile legal career in Manhattan for a simpler life, the floor plan includes a home office. It is nonetheless perfectly suited for tallying egg sales, projecting crop yields, and browsing seed catalogs.

But it’s the farmland that is this property’s biggest asset. Easy to imagine a new owner astride a chugging tractor, navigating the fields in a buttoned-down, tweed suit.

16 Park Drive East, Ottsville, head and shoulders above its ramshackle sitcom forebear, lists for $1,200,000.
