c. 1787 Farmhouse

1868 Shenkel Road
Pottstown, Pennsylvania 19465

Steeped in History

Historic circa 1787 +/- stone farmhouse on exceptional 27 +/- acre parcel of farm fields and pristine woodland! This northern-facing gradual hillside property offers incredible views of pastoral farmland, tall woodlands, and a distant horizon of hills of Berks County.

Located on a country road and steeped in history as part of the Free Love Valley of the 1800s, the 234 +/- year-old stone farmhouse includes a large enclosed porch and attached summer kitchen with walk-in fireplace and bake oven. The home itself is in need of extensive updating and renovations. The property is being sold in "AS IS" condition.

Whether you restore and/or expand the farmhouse or construct a new home to take advantage of the awesome views, this property poses a great opportunity for the buyer looking for a prime country setting in scenic Chester County. Property is currently in Act 319 resulting in very low taxes. Recent surveying, engineering and preliminary subdivision work may be beneficial based on Buyers plans. Properties such as this only come along once in a great while.
