Live your Country Dream on this gorgeous historic farm property. Almost 13 acres complete with beautifully restored 1850 farmhouse built from Oley Valley stone and original 1735 German post and beam bank barn. The property is a gardener's delight. Spectacular professionally-designed and lovingly-tended gardens frame the home, containing heirloom plants such as hydrangea, yarrow, holly, boxwood, iris, winterberry, witch hazel, bittersweet, just to name a few. Acres of open meadows, containing native species of wildflowers and other plants, are naturally organic, and perfect for organic farming, free-range chickens or as pasture for the grazing enjoyment of your goats, sheep, horses, cows or other livestock. You will also enjoy the fabulous forest where wildlife abounds and peace and seclusion can be found. The large farmhouse kitchen, sunny and bright with rich hickory cabinets, is a perfect place to prepare gourmet meals from your gardens outside. Enter the kitchen from the side porch with baskets full of your own fresh produce and start chopping on the granite counter tops, while the oil sizzles in the pan. Make another trip outside to gather fresh flowers to arrange throughout the home, scenting the area and pleasing the eye. The gorgeous plank flooring, original large stone fireplace, deep farmhouse windowsills, open beams, and clean, white-washed pine board walls all reflect the historic character of this home. The outstanding original post and beam Bank Barn is a perfect specimen of the craftsmanship of the Germans from centuries ago. The first level is large enough for three horse stalls and a drive-in second level is perfect for hay and/or equipment storage. This charming property also contains an historic smokehouse/summer kitchen with a walk-in fireplace and a gardening shed perfect for drying and arranging your plants and flowers. Two stone parking areas and a new oversized three-car garage provides for plenty of parking for your family and friends who will come to visit you at your lovely new Country Home.
