Buckshire: An estate, which has been extensively documented for its refined elegance, refuge, and historical significance, is newly available and ready to convey to its next stewardship. Buckshire has been praised by the likes of: Arts & Antiques; Nouveau;New Old House;Classic American Home; Country Living; River Towns; Bucks County Adventures; etc. The estate's history began in 1926 but was duly noted when it was acquired in 1932 by The Harvard Lampoon editor and New Hope artist, Charles Child. Mr. Child was married to the heiress Fredericka Boyles and his twin brother, Paul Child, was married to the world renown writer and French chef, Julia Child. In fact, Julia and Paul had their wedding reception on this estate in September of 1946. To date, the home still maintains the integrity of Julia's design of the kitchen, including her Wolf range, and the wrap-around garden mural in the dining room painted by Charlie. There have been so many countless embellishments over the years, especially by owners, Tim and Millena Coffey, it would be impossible to record them all.
