Considered one of the oldest stone bank barns in the Americas, "The Leap Year Barn," circa 1762, is an absolutely enchanting pre-revolutionary Sweitzer style converted barn. The residence, set in a nature preserve outside of Doylestown, PA, features a gourmet kitchen, "bakery room" with a wood-fired brick pizza oven, and master suite with a private sitting room and outdoor overlook of the grounds —the real draw of this three-bedroom home.

Featured in Curbed's recent collection of 10 gorgeous pools and grottos on the market around Philly, this one is something to behold: there is a grotto sitting area that boasts stone pillars, locally-sourced wood beams, and a stone hearth. There's of course a pool, and a sprinkling of out buildings that offer possible studio space, and a detached two-story garage and garden shed.
