1750 Stone Farmhouse and Turnpike Tavern

Imagine history, horses, and prime location all wrapped up in one incredible package. This historic Exeter Township, Berks County farmette is all that and so much more. The original section of this 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath stone farmhouse was built circa 1750. The new addition was added in 1830, when the building served as the Ritter Tavern on the Oley Toll Road. Much has changed since the tavern and toll road days. Modern amenities have made life on the homestead much more convenient, but the charm, character, and warmth of this home and the adjoining buildings has only increased. The original front door now opens into the wood-paneled dining room. The "new" entrance leads into a welcoming center hall with open staircase. To the right is the living room/library with built-in bookcases. Beyond is the great room with a functioning brick fireplace. The spacious Quaker Maid kitchen is well designed with modern appliances and extensive cabinetry. The laundry/mud room is located immediately adjacent to the kitchen. Ascending the winding staircase to the second floor hall, one finds four spacious and bright bedrooms. The master bedroom is particularly inviting, with its own bath a functioning fireplace. The house is capped with a large, walk-up attic. Moving outdoors, this amazing property continues to impress. There is the original spring house/summer kitchen, with a huge walk-in fireplace. In addition, there is a large bank barn, wagon shed, garage, and shop, plus a spring fed stream.
