Village Bridge Farm is a wonderful example of classic Bucks County Stone Farmhouse. This Circa 1850's home sits at the edge of the sleepy river village of Erwinna, Pennsylvania. This was an overnight stop for the mule drawn barges that ran 60 miles of canal and towpath, bringing anthracite coal from Easton to Philadelphia. The last lock toll was paid in 1931, almost 86 years ago, and the tow path and canal are now part of the Delaware River Park System. At one time Erwinna provided shelter and food for the weary canal workers. Today Erwinna provides a refuge for those seeking a kinder, laid back lifestyle, and the opportunity to recharge and renew. Handsome home sits on a lovely 8 acre parcel and overlooks another Bucks County Treasure, The Erwinna Covered Bridge. This bridge is one of the remaining 11 covered bridges that still stands in Bucks County today. The bridge, the stream and this lovely home have been the inspiration of many Bucks County Artists as the personification of what "Bucks County" is all about. The home itself is over 2400 square feet and combine the unique architectural details that represent the quality of 18th Century construction practices along with a sense of style and sophistication that is most inviting. It is a wonderful blend that is perfect for entertaining. The rooms throughout are quite large and sun filled. The spacious eat in kitchen has a walk in fireplace as the focal point of the room. Doors lead from the kitchen to the rear terrace and a spiral rear staircase takes you to the Master Suite. Adjacent Formal Dining Room will accomodate large dinner parties.

There is ample room for storage in both the attic and the basement. The screened front porch overlooks the stream and covered bridge while the patio offers a more private setting.
