This quintessential Pennsylvania farmhouse, built in 1830, still retains much of its original Post-Revolutionary War-era detailing and awaits its transformation into a distinguished historic home! The handsome stone house and its attendant outbuildings sit on 7 acres and date back to the early 19th Century, when former blacksmith and merchant, Jacob Hause opened a general store, which still stands on the property. Spanning the front of the house, a restored wooden porch is an inviting place to relax and take in the surrounding countryside. Inside the home are notable period details: a decorative columned fireplace in the entry/parlor room; a Greek Revival-style fireplace, traditional side-wall moulding, and wide-plank floors in the dining room; and a large, working brick fireplace, which could be the centerpiece of a very cozy, colonial-style living room. Up the half-turn staircase are 4 bedrooms and a full bath adorned with vintage black and white tile. Hardwood floors and traditional moulding continue throughout the 2nd floor. A lovely, two-story sunroom was added to the southern side of the house, as was a screened side porch and a small back addition. So much to fall in love with here — could this be your historic home renovation adventure?
