Welcome to an incredible homesite opportunity in East Hempfield, conveniently located near everything life in Lancaster has to offer and directly across from the new Penn State hospital. The property of Jims Landscaping, on Harrisburg Pike, is now for sale. For those who have admired it over the years, it can now be yours. With over 3 acres of private, captivatingly designed land, the site provides the unique opportunity to create your own vision and build a traditional or contemporary single-family home or extended family compound. If you are not satisfied with living in a congested neighborhood, and would like room to breathe while still living in a central location, then this is the property you have been searching for! The parcel includes a 19th century log cottage with modern facilities - including updated appliances, a new roof, and charming outdoor patio. Currently tenant-occupied, the cottage may be used as a guest house or for income once a primary site has been constructed. 2822 Harrisburg Pike is a dream-like property, lovingly cared for over many years, featuring mature trees, a waterfall, windmill, 19th century log home, privacy fencing, and a mortise and pin barn with basic utilities. Additionally, there are two barns used as garages, making up 6 total spaces, and are excellent for car enthusiasts. One of these is a hand-crafted, post-and-beam barn with mortise and tenon joinery, constructed by renowned builder Ephraim Riehl, with HVAC, office space, and large automatic doors for heavy-duty equipment. We have designers and architects on board to help you create the final product of your dream home. Enjoy the serenity of the natural world with access to your own private, stocked pond, while rare aquatic birds visit during all seasons. By the pond there is a notable inclusion, a cupola from the roof of the 1800s Lancaster County Alms House, once an icon of the Lancaster City skyline. For almost four decades, the aesthetically thrilling property has been a staple of the community. It has served as the headquarters for the local landscape design firm, Jims Landscaping . You will find the same high-quality grounds as other sites they have designed, including areas of Bent Creek and other luxury homesites throughout Lancaster. Despite being zoned single-family residential, there is a grandfathered exception for any contractor to operate their business from this address. Complete with diverse horticulture, from the Japanese Maple found at the corner of the barn, to a native willow by the pond, and the entire nursery of water irises and lotuses between them, you will enjoy countless walks by the water and the calming sounds of the waterfall.
