Description

This lovely E. Lampeter farmette dates back to William Penn who bought it from London Company when it was then part of a 300+ acre parcel (Per the seller who has a copy of that deed). The current tax card indicates the home was built in the 19th century, however a carved date above the springhouse entrance reflects a date of 1729. The home now sits on 8.6 acres with over 3000+ square foot main home plus 5 outbuildings! The highlight exterior feature is the picturesque spring-fed pond with dock and island, perfect for summer entertaining or even a possible wedding venue! See the fly-over video attached for a better idea! The current owners bought the home from an Amish family and then, via sales and auctions, painstakingly restored much of its original character. The main house has a very flexible floor plan and features wide plank pine flooring, double staircases, grand Living Room with custom brick hearth fireplace, huge main Kitchen with Dining Area. Additionally, theres a Dining Room, 2nd kitchen area, Sunroom and first floor full bath as well. Upstairs there are 5 nice sized bedrooms, full bath and huge third floor attic with cedar closet and tons of space. Outside there’s a 2 car garage attached as well as a 2500SF Bank Barn, 240SF Implement Shed, 1350SF Tobacco Barn and 2 additional storage sheds and springhouse.
