"I knew the moment I entered that house it was the right one. The house itself is beautiful in its simplicity and its lines. It is a French house, more than a century old..." - Pearl S. Buck, Nobel Prize Winner Built in 1860 in the Federal Style and later recast in the Beaux Arts style, with a magnificent limestone façade, by the Philadelphia architectural firm of DeArmond, Ashmead & Bickley. The home was purchased in 1964 as the home of Pearl Buck and the Pearl S. Buck foundation. It was in this Center City house where Nobel prize winner, Ms. Buck, the women's right crusader, philanthropist, humanitarian and author compiled her 1972 short story collection, "Once upon a Christmas" among others. One enters the home to a magnificent entrance hall/reception area. There is a sweeping staircase, a huge eat- in kitchen that seats eight and two islands, one butcher block, and one granite.
