Ornate gingerbread trim on the covered front porch is the first clue that something special awaits within this stone house. Built in 1840 on farmland bordering Bath Pike, the home was moved in 1993 to its current location in the desirable Pointe North neighborhood of Bethlehem. Lovingly preserved and updated in equal measure, the Henry Goetz House is a historic beauty ready for new stewardship.
Sixteen-inch thick stone walls, deep silled windows, and random width pine floors define much of the home’s interior. The foyer is gracious and flows easily into the formal dining room. Beyond, the updated kitchen features granite countertops and a Travertine tile backsplash, along with stainless appliances and plenty of prep and storage space. A sunroom, half bath and office are newer additions, and lead to the screened in porch. The centerpiece of the cozy living room is the original walk-in fireplace, while the family room offers reclaimed barnwood-paneled walls and a cast iron Franklin stove.
Both the first and second floors boast ceiling heights over 9’. Upstairs, three bedrooms and a hall bath complement the primary suite, which has abundant windows, multiple closets, and an ensuite bath. The backyard is lush with mature landscaping and includes a bluestone patio perfect for enjoying seasonal views of the woodlands maintained by Wildlands Conservancy. This unique piece of history is only a mile from the Hanover Township park and community center, and main commuter routes are easily accessible.
