Earl Jamison’s custom-built home in Solebury Township is for sale, and it’s as spectacular as you’re imagining.
The estate, which has been dubbed Peaceful Grazing Farm, was built to the Peddler’s Village founder’s specifications – you’ll notice a notice a lot of similarities with the village’s architecture – in 1978. It resides on 38 picturesque acres along Pidcock Creek Road that encompass vast manicured pastures and a large pond. The main home – a reproduction farmhouse – and the many outbuildings have undergone an extensive renovation in recent years.
In the main home, the rustic exterior carries over to the interior, with lots of raw wood, exposed beams, and stone walls. But much of the space is also wide-open, giving it a distinctly modern feel.
White oak floors run throughout the first floor, which includes a massive fieldstone fireplace – one of three in the home – a dining room that can accommodate a 10-foot-long table and offers floor-to-ceiling views of the surrounding property, and a kitchen that features commercial-grade appliances, concrete counters, and a walk-in pantry. There’s also a study with access to a screened-in porch and another living room with another fireplace.
A raw wood staircase with custom iron balusters leads upstairs, to the immense, raised-ceiling master suite, which includes double walk-in closets, his and her bathrooms with radiant heat floors, and yet another fireplace. The other two bedrooms also have their own bathrooms.
Directly next door, there’s a three-bedroom guest home. Each of those bedrooms has its own bathroom. And walk-in closet. A gas fireplace anchors the living room, which flows seamlessly into a large kitchen and dining space.
Nearby, an old springhouse has been repurposed as a cottage. A working barn includes a hay loft, extensive storage space, and five large stalls. Across a field, there are paddocks with run-in sheds, ample room for horses and sheep, and two newly built arenas for riding.
A short walk away – lit brick and natural stone paths connect the different aspects of the property – a heated saltwater pool is nestled among some landscaping. The pool house has an outdoor shower and a powder room.
