The Leap Year Barn – a Storybook Masterpiece

Homes For Sale Real Estate Storybook Cottages

I loved The Leap Year Barn at first sight and am excited to share it with you. It is the kind of old world storybook home that melts hearts and you know you’re home. I wish we could all have this kind of house to live in if we wanted. I think this is why cottage style homes and decor are so popular today.

The house resembles cottages in Carmel, CA that I often share, but the Leap Year Barn is nestled on a quaint road in Doylestown, PA

The Leap Year Barn listing says it is “considered one of the oldest stone bank barns in the America’s, circa 1752. It was featured on HGTV and in many publications.” Reportedly the house is called The Leap Year Barn because it was built in a leap year (so it’s not that old or is it) and not because it has anything to do with the movie “Leap Year.

Grab your favorite drink and get ready for a ride through enchanted living.
