Nestled in southern Lancaster County, this 18th century English-style 2 ½ story stone farmhouse offers panoramic views of the Susquehanna River Valley in Drumore Township. Surrounded by Amish farms and Susquehannock State Park, this 11.3 acre farmette features a 3 bay, 3384 square foot home with 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 2 half baths, 6 Fireplaces, a double-decker stone bank barn, detached summer kitchen, which now serves as a workshop, and a stone smokehouse which could have multiple uses presently serving as a garden house. Physical evidence on the house, per the current owners, supports an early date (1730-1770) with its style of masonry, eaves and segmental arches. Oral history places the date of the earliest construction at 1767.
The home retains beautifully restored and preserved original architectural features including 6 fireplaces, with the cooking hearth in the kitchen and its flanking cupboards. The living room has its original floor to ceiling corner cupboard and a unique family bible cupboard recessed into the stone wall. Original oak and pine hardwood floors, chair rail and peg rail abound throughout the home. The conveniences of modern living have been creatively integrated into the home to provide the ease and comfort of 21st century life while maintaining the original feel of a colonial home. The spacious master bedroom and en suite features a ceramic tile bath with radiant heat, his and her vanities, a walk-in shower and a beautiful interior exposed stone wall.
The property, featured in Early American Life in 2013, is enhanced with mature trees, perennial gardens, a water garden, four square kitchen garden, walls and walkways, a north enclosed porch and a south open porch. This gorgeous estate could have future uses as a horse farm, possible B&B, a wedding location or simply a stunning view. This authentically restored and preserved home, barn and outbuildings is a MUST SEE !!
