This property originally belonged to my father's grandfather, Dr. George Morley Marshall who thought it such a beautiful countryside to paint that he called his boyhood friend and artist, William Lathrop and sold a portion of the property to Lathrop, thus began the School of Pennsylavania Impressionists here in the New Hope/ Phillips' Mill area. Soon after, Lathrop sold a few acres to Morgan Colt. who was a well known architect, painter, woodworker, and iron worker. Morgan Colt then began building this extrodinary little English Village to be his residence. We purchased this property in 1995 and in 2010 decided to make two of the cottages available to rent on VRBO (Gothic Cottage) seen here and (Herringbone Cottage) also listed on VRBO. Please ask for our brochure which has photos and discription of both of our rental Cottages here.
