2 Beautiful, historic houses, plus a spring house, and a 3 car garage on nearly 4 acres. These houses are filled with fascinating character! You’ll love the 2 ft thick fieldstone walls. In the 2762 sq. ft. house, you’ll find 1700’s architecture, a rustic but inviting living room, cozy fireplaces, the bubble glass, 2 staircases. The unique slate roof was recently serviced. The 2005 sq. ft. house has a bright welcoming living room with cathedral ceilings and open timbers. The large modern kitchen has wide plank chestnut wood floors and Corian countertops. 1st floor bedroom, bath and laundry. Wide doorways and a ramp to the front door for accessibility. Despite extensive renovations, the entertaining, historic architecture remains intact. The piping and wiring were updated throughout and the standing seam metal roof should last a lifetime. New wood stove. This home was a distillery before prohibition. Both homes have geothermal heating and central AC. New constant variable speed pump. If you want more space beyond that of the 2 houses, a lovely spring house has piping for radiant floor heat and a fireplace. The water for the property comes from a 100 gal. per minute artesian well that flows to a pond which is cold enough for trout to thrive. A pasture with wire mesh fencing has several run-in sheds, so bring the horses and cattle. Gorgeous perennial flower beds. In the springtime, daffodils cover the hillside. You have the potential for lower taxes through if you apply with Clean and Green. There is a large private grass field and forest land with mature walnut, cherry and locust trees. It has abundant, diverse wildlife. Deer, turkeys, hummingbirds, owls, and hawks frequent this property. Located on a quiet road just minutes from the Northwest River Trail, route 30, shopping and restaurants. It is in mostly Penn Manor school district but partly in Hempfield.
