Bucks County Designer House 2017

Be part of the excitement and tour Hill Crest Manor to see how an experienced team of design experts transformed this gracious Victorian farmhouse, dating back to 1808. Your support will help ensure the best heart and vascular care for our community.

The Cause

Taking part in the 2017 Bucks County Designer House & Gardens Designer House, whether enjoying the preview gala, learning something new at a wellness event or just relaxing in a beautiful setting with friends, helps Doylestown Health meet the needs of our community.

The annual event is the largest fundraiser held by the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown (VIA), a non-profit women's organization that founded and continues to participate in the governance of Doylestown Hospital.

The VIA held the first Bucks County Designer House at Wheelbarrow Hill in Holicong in 1971. This year's Designer House continues a tradition of community service by directing proceeds to benefit the local community. Over the years these proceeds helped fund the construction of Doylestown Health's new Emergency Department in 2010, provided $1 million for the renovations of the VIA Maternity Center in 2013, and provided scholarships and helped hundreds of families, women in post-secondary education programs and community-interest groups who were in need of financial and other assistance.

The 2017 Designer House will help fund capital and equipment needs for the new Endovascular Surgery Suite and build necessary facilities commensurate with the high level of care provided by Doylestown Health physicians and nurses to stay at the forefront of healthcare delivery.

The House

Hill Crest Manor is located at 3690 Burnt House Hill Road in Doylestown, and house tours are available April 30 – May 28. Dozens of designers, landscapers, and artists have worked their magic on this Victorian farmhouse, sitting on five acres. Remnants of 19th-century life remain, with a hand-pulled doorbell and a 'cash window' where field hands collected their pay.

Other highlights of the house are Mercer tile accents inlaid in kitchen and pantry brick floors and over the dining room fireplace mantle. Be sure to check out and shop at the boutiques set up on the grounds, and enjoy a light snack or lunch at the Hill Crest Café, before or after the tour.
