Tell me all about it: Pennsbury Mill was totally renovated in 2013. Among the thoughtful new details is a custom kitchen with high-end appliances, a broad island and lots of natural light. The rest of the house isn’t bad either. We love the master suite with its walk-in closets and en-suite bath with soaking tub. The property also includes a guest cottage, so there will be plenty of space for crashers to the holiday prep party.
