The Bensalem estate has stood in Bucks County since 1794.

One of the most well-known estates in nearby Bucks County is regarded as one of the most unique buildings in the Philadelphia region. Staff writers at WGAL News 8 wrote about the estate.

The Andalusia Historic House, Gardens and Arboretum, located at 1237 State Road in Andalusia, an area of Bensalem, is widely regarded as one of the most eloquent property in both Bucks County and the Philadelphia area.

The original house was built in 1794 by John Craig, who named it after the Andalusia region of Spain. Craig hired architect Benjamin Latrobe to expand the house in 1806 in a Greek Revival style.

“The Bucks County riverfront property is a National Historic Landmark just 13 miles from Center City, Philadelphia, and features some of the most pristine antiquities in the nation inside its Historical House, complemented by dazzling gardens, wooded paths, and the scenic Delaware riverbank,” the estate said in a promotional posting.
