Here is your chance to own a beautiful piece of the past. This lovely gentleman's farm lies peacefully in fertile Lancaster County farmland. Enter using the tree-lined paved driveway. Upon arrival you see the original stone farmhouse built in the 1700s. Exposed wood beams and stone walls, deep window sills and wood flooring, 4 fireplaces and original mantles, chair railing and wide trim throughout the house beckon you to earlier times. But the modern kitchen and bathrooms, updated lighting, new insulation, central heating and air conditioning allow you to live comfortable 21st century lives. You'll love the high ceilings, open staircase and all the windows that bring in the natural light and stunning views. Lots of space for work, play and home life. With 7 bedrooms, you can entertain extended family or host a bed and breakfast. Outdoors enjoy the retreat setting featuring porches, a brick patio, pond, mature trees, a sprawling lawn and pastures. There is a detached 5-car garage next to the house. Across the way is a large post & beam bank barn. The barn and paddock open to 10-acres of land. A small orchard, fenced garden and hen house complete this homesteading paradise. Close to downtown Mount Joy businesses and the train station for commuting, or just stay home, tend the farm and prop up your feet at the end of a hard day's work.
