Property Description

This 35.6 acre farm brings with it a piece of southern York County history. The 2 ½ story farmhouse was built in 1857 as a hotel & tavern. It was built with 7 bedrooms on the second floor, but today has 4 bedrooms and a full bath upstairs. The main floor has a large living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry room & bath. A full attic and full basement top off the storage space available in this 2560 sq ft home. The exterior of the house is covered in Ironstone. This covers the original brick exterior. There is also an exterior entrance to the basement area. Full length porches grace both the front and back of the house. The house has a slate roof on the top level and metal shingles that look like slate on both porch roofs. A paved driveway provides entrance to the property. The heat is provided with a natural gas furnace that feeds water radiators with natural convection flow. This keeps the temperature even all day. The house is connected to public water and you even have a fire hydrant in the corner of the yard which helps keep insurance rates down. There is also a well on site that can be used. A new septic system was installed around 10 years ago. The bathrooms and laundry room were renovated at about the same time. Two of the bedrooms have had new carpeting installed in the last 2 years. The barn is believed to have been built around the same time as the house. It is a sturdy 38' x 50' structure that has metal siding on the walls and new windows in the peaks. The roof was replaced 2 years ago with a metal roof that should last for decades. The lower part of the barn has 3 stables that were used for cattle and 3 pens that were used for hogs. Next to the barnyard is an open area for wagon and equipment storage and a corn crib which is part of the barn. Rolling doors open to the upper level of the barn which has 2 large mows for hay or straw and plenty of storage space. Outside the doors is a concrete loading dock that makes it easy to load equipment onto a truck or wagon. There are several other outbuildings. One is a 38' x 22' cement block building built in 1962 with rolling doors. This can be used as a garage or workshop. A 40' x 38' frame garage has an overhead door that can be used as a garage or for storage. The back portion is a small chicken house. The third building is a frame 22' x 20' storage building. Part of it makes a great place to keep lawn equipment while the other half can be used for storage. There is also a small garden tool building on the property. The farm is considered to have some of the best quality soil in the county with the majority of it being Chester silt loam. Approximately 33.5 acres are tillable with the remaining acreage being where the house & outbuildings are located. The property is zoned agricultural and residential and is in the Clean & Green program to reduce taxes.
