now that my gardening is done, I think I'll take a dip in the pool
and then relax with a book on the loggia.
Oh, wait, this isn't my house. Shucks.
This beautiful home and garden belongs to Sue Wert and her husband Mike. Named Tarp Farm, it's 14 acres in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, not far from where I grew up. According to Traditional Home magazine who featured this home and garden, Mike and Sue Wert’s goal when they acquired Tarp Farm in 1996 was to create a practical environment for outdoor living that family and friends could enjoy and also a place that would be spacious enough to host major social events for the local charitable organizations that the couple supports. I'd say they achieved their goal... and more. Isn't is lovely.
