Sometimes the best medicine is solitude. Sure, you can find quiet contemplation in the midst of the densest block of rowhomes or condo buildings, but it's easier to find your Zen away from other people. These three homes offer enough acreage that you could get far enough away that you won't risk seeing another human being, while still being right at home. The American Dream.
1315 Pineville Road, New Hope, PA
A couple of acres: This 120-acre property features a manor house, several barns and a carriage house – all situated among stone-gated pastures and riding areas. The stone and brick pathways are perfect for quiet walks spent contemplating the Bucks County countryside. A perfect four-season room in the main house offers views even if you can't be bothered to put on pants.
2830 Shady Nook Road, Slatington, PA
A couple of acres: This property features 9,300 square feet of living space situated on more than 150 acres. Which offers room enough for a giant main home and a four-bedroom guesthouse, as well as an enormous pool with patio and gazebo. This Lehigh Valley stunner has views for days and – if you play your cards right – nary another human being in sight.
140 Evans Hill Road, Sinking Spring, PA
A couple of acres: With a lot size of more than 126 acres, this property includes one historic stone manor and a horse barn with all the fixins (interior riding arena, new paddock, lighting and even groom's quarters). The home already has a private artist's studio perfect for silent creation. The barn has a gallery space to display the fruits of your therapy.
