Description

Ha~Penny Farm, a notable Georgian manor house and farmstead located in the scenic Oley Valley, offers an opportunity to become the steward of one of Pennsylvania’s truly notable historic farms with multiple, beautifully preserved 18th and 19th century outbuildings including a renowned, recently restored, late 18th Century barn. Originally part of the Abraham Knabb farmstead, the property’s 8-acre setting is flanked by forested hills and Oley picturesque agricultural landscape. Oley Township, where the farm lies, is well known for its rural landscapes, multiple well preserved buildings and Pennsylvania Dutch farms, and is famously one of the towns first listed in the National Registry of Historic Places. Beginning in 2016, a comprehensive renovation of the house and entire farmstead was begun, with the main and auxiliary barns being completed in 2018. Careful historic research and professional architectural oversight resulted in an award-winning, multiple six figure restoration to a very high standard. The main Pennsylvania German bank barn was described by one awarding judge as a ~jewel~, and both barns are now suitable for entertaining and enjoyment of ownership. Other outbuildings include the original, pioneer German, red clay tile roofed stone home dwelling, spring house and bake oven, as well as a charming hillside stone root cellar. The farm is set back from a quiet country road. A pleasant driveway leads to the beautiful 1817 stone house’s formal entrance. A large architecturally matching addition to the house was added relatively recently by previous owners, mostly for the purpose of more living and entertaining space. Originally built by a wealthy farmer, Abraham Knabb, the home~s architecture is classically Georgian with a gabled roof, chimneys on each end and an elaborately decorated front door. Inside, the floor plan features sizable formal living and dining rooms, a kitchen and great room. A gracious staircase leads to two upper floors with five bedrooms and four full baths. There are two half baths on the main and lower levels. The lower level also contains a large wine cellar. Note the home’s many original features and details: excellent natural light throughout, high ceilings, wide doorways, exposed-stone walls, random-width hardwood floors, deep-set windows, beamed ceilings, built-in corner cabinetry and bookcases, original hardware and the original, large, open hearth and several other working fireplaces. A later great-room addition with cathedral ceiling and fireplace is drenched in sunlight with French doors opening to an expansive flagstone terrace. From the terrace, admire the formal courtyard-style garden, stone walls and long-distance views that include a stream and charming spring house. Completing the farmstead view is a bake house with an original German-style tile roof and even a large spring-fed swimming pool. A restoration process with the same attention to detail and quality given to the barns has been started with the house. Choose your kitchen, bathroom and laundry room finishes and fixtures and enjoy this picturesque combination of historical detail with 21st-century conveniences. Take this opportunity to become the next owner of Ha~Penny Farm and put your signature on it. It’s a property rich in history and beauty with a clear path and vision to ready it for the next 200 years.
