c. 1820 Colonial Farmhouse

Macungie, Pennsylvania 18062

Peacefully situated at the end of a tree-lined drive this 1820 stone farmhouse has been meticulously restored by the retiring owners. Offering all the character and charm of an historic home the original structure features interior stone walls, wide plank antique flooring, deep windowsills, beamed ceilings and original built-ins.

A well-designed, quality-crafted late 1980's addition tastefully marries the past to the present with great attention to detail going into the expansion. Providing good-sized rooms throughout the property features an enclosed breezeway which the current owners refer to as The Music Room.

The dining room (Tavern Room), living room (Keeping Room), and Summer Kitchen are all true to period. A front hall and rear staircase both lead to the inviting kitchen with Kennebec custom cabinetry and beautiful soapstone counters. A powder room and laundry complete the first floor. Upstairs find three spacious, light-filled bedrooms, all with views of the private acre+ lot with extensive gardens.

The brick and stone patio with outdoor kitchen are tucked inside the perennial-lined picket fenced area of the backyard, complete with log potting shed. The raised bed vegetable gardens grow next to the 18x18 guest house/cottage, constructed from an 1820's log home using stone from a Berks County farmhouse to build the fireplace.

Truly a 45 year labor of love and a remarkable story of one couple's vision, this very special property is one of those once-in-a-lifetime finds.
