Pristine, Historic Stone with Outbuildings Nestled remarkably on a gorgeous 5.11 acres for the last two centuries is a pristine, Mauer-built farmhouse with unquestionable character and distinction. Registered in the Pennsylvania Historical Society, this incredible property boasts meticulous landscaping and lush greenery, multiple outbuildings, a Schuylkill River canal, trails and more. Up the brick walkway to stone paver stairs at the entry of the house, you’re greeted by a lovely stone facade with wood shutters and a shaded slate patio. Inside, you’ll immediately notice the main level’s high ceilings, old hardwood floors, original doors and trim, and deep-set windows with wavy glass adorned throughout. The awesome living room has a lovely brick fireplace with wood trim and a corner, glass-front built-in, plus crown, chair rail, and accent molding. Through to the spacious den, the stage is set for productivity with a built-in bookshelf and cabinets, corner built-ins, as well as pumpkin pine hardwood and chair rail molding. Enjoy dinner in the one-of-a-kind dining room by a huge walk-in, brick fireplace with wood mantle and closed brick oven, elevated by wainscoting, chair rail molding, beamed ceilings, and an exterior door. And relax and digest by the brick fireplace with decorative wood surround in the bright family room with an original graved door to the covered back porch. The idyllic farmhouse kitchen has exposed beams, wood countertops, and double swanstone sink with brass faucet, as well as a built-in microwave, dishwasher, wall oven, and pantry, while the fantastic breakfast room features a walk-in brick fireplace and direct access to one of the two slate paver patios. The second level of the original 1820-built house has two bedrooms enjoying random-width plank flooring and a large walk-in closet. The first has a lovely brick fireplace, hardwood floors, corner built-in, and chair rail molding, while the Master bedroom is elevated by hardwood floors and chair rail molding with a beautiful private tile bath with step-in shower with glass door and center shelf, and glass-top vanity. The finished, walk-up third floor is a perfect rec room with wood floors, a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, and eyeball lighting. The home’s 1840s addition adds another three potential bedrooms with hardwood floors, one with a walk-up attic door and French door closet, and a full hall bathroom with large tile tub/shower, chair rail molding, and built-in cabinet. The basement hosts the laundry room with a walk out to the backyard. Also on the sprawling property is a beautiful brick butcher house and a smokehouse, both with metal roofing, while a shake roof tops the neighboring outhouse. Take advantage of the ample storage of a 2-car detached garage with metal roof, snowbirds, wood siding, and walk-up storage.
