Thomas Bull House, also known as Robert's Plantation, Redding Plantation, and Mt. Pleasant, is a historic home located in East Nantmeal Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. The house is in three parts. The oldest section was built about 1715. It is part of the two-story, four bay eastern section of the stone dwelling. The two-story, three bay, third section was probably built between 1783 and 1796. The interior of the older part features a circular staircase that wraps around the chimney. It is an example of late Georgian / early Federal architecture.[2]

The farm was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
