An Adams County treasure on the National Register of Historic Places. Classic center hall Federal style triple brick home built 1819 by Alexander Horner. The home features 9 foot ceilings on main level , some rooms with wood plank flooring and 9 over 6 original windows on main level with 6 over 6 windows on second floor. There are 4 functional fireplaces. Fifth generation 200 year family farm of 121.8 acres with frontage on Marsh Creek and containing the Bush-Horner Branch listed on the National Geodetic Survey. The farm was included within the Manor of Maske , the original land grant from William Penn to his heirs. Approximately 100 tillable acres and 15 acres woodlands with gently rolling terrain and scenic pastoral views. The 100′ 6″ Pennsylvania Bank Barn was built 1840 and is suitable for cattle. There is an equipment barn 30′ X 22′ built c. 1916. The 3 car detached garage building (24′ X 48′) includes a shop heated with oil furnace. The original summer kitchen (14′ X 16′) is ideal for a quiet getaway with electric, wood plank flooring and fireplace with pellet stove. Located in a predominantly agricultural area of southern Adams County, yet just a few minutes to Rt 15 access to Maryland/Washington DC metro areas and to the Links of Gettysburg. The property is under the Agricultural Conservation Easement to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in perpetuity , within the Cumberland Township Agricultural Security Area and Clean & Green Tax Assessment reduction program. There is a 5 acre tract within the farm which is not included in the Conservation Easement and could possibly become a residential building site. This is a grand property with a bountiful history just waiting for a new generation to carry on the tradition. The home is very livable but is a prime candidate for a period restoration. It retains interior window and door mouldings, wood plank flooring and many original windows.
