Feasterville-Trevose, Pennsylvania: Residential Community in Bucks County Near Historic Estates and Antique Shops
Farmlands and historic estates dot the countryside of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, a region about a half-hour outside Philadelphia. The quiet town of Feasterville-Trevose sits near the banks of the Delaware River and features one such estate: the Cairnwood, a Beaux Art-style mansion built in 1892 with formal gardens and elaborate stonewalls.
Around Feasterville, you’ll also find relics of the Gilded Age in antique shops—the town is home to the Brownsville Antique Centre, and Peddler’s Village offers more than 70 specialty shops about 15 miles north. Another spot worthy of a day trip is New Hope, Pennsylvania, a former milling town-turned-artists'-colony whose cobblestone streets are lined with curio shops, art galleries, and farm-to-table restaurants.
