Learn with Peace of Mind

Access to outstanding educational facilities in a low crime environment can provide an excellent foundation for children, as well as insurance on your real estate investment.

Moving to Bucks County Means Enjoying Nature in the Great Outdoors

Categories: Bucks County Homes, Highfield Estates, Things to do in Bucks County | Posted: January 31, 2018

If you’re planning to move to Bucks County and you cherish an active lifestyle, consider a new home community built by Hallmark Homes Group.

Residents of these beautiful new homes enjoy exciting wintertime activities designed to build character and enrich community. After all, there’s much more to the Pennsylvania winters than just hanging out indoors and staying cozy.

Country Ridge in Perkasie, PA and Highfield Estates in Chalfont, PA are both situated near the Peace Valley Nature Center where brisk adventures await including naturalist walks, full moon campfires, bluebird workshops, Maple Syrup Day and more.

Witness Nature’s Splendor

Every Wednesday in January and February, 14 miles of trails in the Peace Valley Nature Center await the soles of your sturdy winter boots. Around 1:30 pm weather permitting, family and friends are invited to participate in Winter Naturalist Walks and absorb the visual spectacle of wintertime in nature.

Discover a landscape transformed, complete with snow-laden trees, partially frozen streams and curvy snowdrifts. Watch the blue jays, finches and woodpeckers buzz about the branches and trace the fresh paw prints from resident chipmunks, hares and long-tailed weasels.

Basque in the Bucks County Moonlight

Once a month, mid-winter evenings present an opportunity to admire the frosty scenery of Peace Valley Nature Center beneath the glow of the full moon. From 5:30 until 7:30 PM, family and friends can stay warm along side a roaring campfire while taking in the beauty of a naturally lit nighttime winter landscape.

To maintain an intimate, serene setting, these events have limited attendance. This experience is definitely an event to plan ahead for, so be sure to mark your calendars for the next full moon.

Help the Bluebirds

Bluebird Workshops are educational afternoons dedicated to teaching the ecology and biology of a once-endangered bird. Participants learn a new wintertime craft while becoming an active participant in the comeback of a beloved winged species.

Join these creative group workshops and enjoy building a custom-made birdhouse that you can hang outside your new home in Bucks County. Classes have limited enrollment so be sure to sign up early.

Savor the Maple Flavor

Take a brisk stroll through time and discover a tradition passed on from Native Americans to early Pennsylvania pioneers and kept alive through the centuries by organizations like the PVNC. Maple Sugar Day could perhaps be one of the sweetest indulgences you discover after moving to Bucks County.

Any lingering New Year’s resolutions to refrain from sweets will be left at the trailhead. Learn how maple sap is collected and join in on the harvest. Taste the raw sap, then watch as it is boiled down and turned into syrup. Of course, you’ll have to finish off the day with a waffle or two drowned in maple magic.

Enjoy Bucks County Year-Round

Moving to Bucks County presents a wealth of wintertime activities for those who love to stay active year-round. Contact us to learn more about Hallmark’s new communities in this beautiful region including homes in Perkasie, PA and Chalfont, PA.

Residents of New Custom Homes in Bucks County Enjoy Regional Holiday Events

Categories: Bucks County Homes, Highfield Estates, Things to do in Bucks County | Posted: December 20, 2017

Living in Bucks County, you can anticipate a holiday season bright with illumination and tradition. In addition to the area’s wide range of amenities, exciting arrays of events are just a short drive.

If you’re moving to Bucks County, whether you’re living at Highfield Estates in Chalfont, PA or at Country Ridge in Perkasie, PA, you can expect lively adventures ahead of you that will enkindle that special sense of mid-winter wonder.

Light Up the Night

Amid the snowflakes awaits Peddler’s Village, a diverse complex of specialty shops, distinctive eateries and cozy lodging accommodations. Every year in mid-November, Santa and Mrs. Claus kick off the Grand Illumination Celebration by switching on one million jewel-colored lights.

The village is transformed into a nighttime wonderland, and as a guest you can enjoy roasted marshmallows, warm apple cider and extended shopping hours until 10:00 pm. Pose for a family photo with Santa at Giggleberry Fair or sing along to holiday favorites performed by local musicians and area school choirs.

Climb Aboard

A wintertime adventure awaits you with the New Hope and Ivyland Railroad, featuring the return of the historic #40 Steam Locomotive. In the very presence of Santa and Mrs. Claus, you and your family will travel from New Hope Station through the Bucks County countryside, all the way to the North Pole and back again.

As you take in the scenery, you can enjoy hot cocoa and snacks amid the festive decorations adorning the railway cars. Each child receives a special sleigh bell gift from St. Nick himself while roaming musicians perform carols throughout the evening.

Head Out to the Farm

For 100 years and four generations, Shady Brook Farms has championed the agricultural way of life. Every winter season, you can explore several acres of these farmlands during the Holiday Light Show. Imagine slowly cruising past three million lights arranged around a collection of familiar holiday characters and whimsical displays.

Take it all in from the comfort of your own vehicle or, weather permitting, from an authentic perch in an open-air wagon. Visitors are encouraged to warm up by the fireside with hot chocolate and s’mores and pick out the perfect locally grown Christmas tree.

Celebrate the Season

Tree lighting ceremonies are a Bucks County tradition that began over 100 years ago. If you’re especially fond of such events, not one but two await your attendance so that you can help give the holiday season a bright welcome. The Borough of Perkasie hosts what is officially recognized as the oldest tree lighting ceremony in the United States — started in 1909.

Not far behind in age and located nearby is the Doylestown Annual Christmas Tree Lighting — started in 1914. Both events feature appearances by Santa, festive displays and plenty of holiday cheer.

If you move to Bucks County in 2018, you’ll be able to join in on all of these holiday festivities for years to come!

Bucks County Winter Wonderland

Wintertime is the perfect season to explore the festive events near your new custom home in Bucks County. Contact us to learn more about finding your dream home here at our new communities Highfield Estates in Chalfont or Country Ridge in Perkasie.

The Suite Life is Trending for Both Owners and In-Laws

Categories: Bucks County Homes, Floor Plans, Highfield Estates, Horsham Glen, New Homes in Montgomery County | Posted: August 17, 2017

Two Suites in Your New Home

First floor owner’s suites as well as in-law suites have become increasingly popular themes in home building. More and more, families are looking for these options when searching for the ideal home and are discovering new home layouts that accommodate varying family needs while enabling privacy and efficiency.

Hallmark Homes Group offers two new home communities, Highfield Estates in Bucks County and Horsham Glen in Montgomery County with floor plans to appeal to these growing homebuyer needs.

A Homeowner’s Sanctuary

After a long day at work, it can be a welcome luxury to retreat to the first floor master suite. Owners can relax and read a book to unwind or, while the kids complete their homework at the kitchen table, parents can rest easy from the comfort of their own room being only a few yards away.

One of the many enticing features of The Harrison floor plan offered by Hallmark Homes Group is the luxurious downstairs owners’ suite. With space to spare, the suite includes a full bath, a separate tub and shower along with an oversized walk-in closet that more than satisfies today’s homebuyers.

Beyond the lavish layout, the master bedroom area in this beautiful estate home provides convenient lower-level accessibility for the homeowners and adds the ease of one floor living. An added benefit is that heating and cooling the lower sections of the house during times when the upstairs may not be in use can save on utility costs.

A Welcoming Place for Relatives

It is becoming increasingly common for parents to live with their adult children and grandchildren, and a number of new homes are specifically designed to accommodate extended family configurations. Many families are discovering the benefits of multi-generational living arrangements for financial, practical and personal reasons.

Grandparents are able to contribute to bills and watch after grandchildren while the parents pursue careers. They, in turn, can rely on their younger family members of both generations for company or care.

The Monroe floor plan available at Hallmark communities in both Bucks and Montgomery Counties, features an in-law suite on the main floor with a private full bath, garden views and a large closet. Located beyond the kitchen and adjacent to the living room, it provides accessibility to all common areas without having to negotiate stairs.

Similarly, an adult child who is home from college or in a transitional period can occupy the same space without forfeiting their sense of independence.

In addition, the owner’s suite in this beautiful new estate home boasts a sumptuous bath and two spacious walk-in-closets and are only part of what makes this suite a pampering escape. It is one of four spacious bedrooms upstairs (with an option for a fifth for larger families).

A Home for Generations

With the multigenerational community-style homes trend growing, Hallmark understands the needs of their homeowners. We will work with you every step of the way to deliver a home that you will love for generations to come.

Contact us if you are looking for a homebuilder who both understands and is willing to customize to accommodate all of your needs.
