We've seen our share of patriotic houses, but this Revolutionary-era farmhouse in Pennsylvania's very beautiful, very historic Bucks County is somethin' else. Beyond the prevalence of American flags large and small, the home currently contains what the listing calls a "museum-like collection of early Americana." Underneath this impressive collection of colonial baskets, toys, quilts, watering cans, and more (which the listing does not indicate will be included), the bones of the house are rather nice, with open beams, pine floors, hand-forged hardware, and deep-set windows throughout. Called Pheasant Hill Farm, the property dates back to the early 1700s and has been expanded several times over the years and restored by current owners.

Waiting at the end of a long private lane cutting through dense woods, the secluded estate of 47 acres includes the main four-bedroom fieldstone barn, a charming two-story guesthouse overlooking a pool, a separate garage, and an "authentic Amish-build greenhouse" per the listing. The main residence is also surrounded by lovely gardens and lawns.
