22 Acre Lehigh County Farm Sold!

Historic Circa 1770 Log/stone Farmhouse - Rare Circa 1770 Log Bank Barn
Nice Mix of Fields and Woodland - Park Like Setting - Beautiful Views

Situated on 22 beautiful acres in Weisenberg Township, Lehigh County, this charming circa 1770 log farmhouse was most likely constructed while Pennsylvania was still an English colony. It is a wonderful example of an early historic Pennsylvania farmstead including a rare 18th century log barn. Both the house and the barn were evaluated by Dr. Robert F. Ensminger, the nationally known architectural historian and author. A long, well maintained stone driveway leads to the house and buildings which are nicely set back from the road. The home was built in 3 sections- the original log house, a circa 1810 stone addition, and a recent addition. The house features a living room with a pellet stove and open beam ceiling, modern eat in kitchen, family room with pellet stove and cathedral ceiling, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and first floor laundry. The master bedroom features an exposed log wall and the other 2 bedrooms have original random width floors. The house has been completely upgraded and is move-in ready. Other amenities surrounding the house include a large deck, paver patio with beautiful retaining walls, potting shed, many gardens with flowering plants, and a new septic system. Next to the house is an 18x20 summer kitchen which can be used as a spa room. There is a 23x18 building currently used as a home office that would have many other uses such as an art studio or music room. A 17x25 garage serves as a use for cars and additional storage. The magnificent Pennsylvania bank barn is in excellent condition and looks like a scene from a Wyeth painting. The original 24x32 barn is a Swiss double log crib bank barn with forebay. The barn was later enlarged to its current size of 64x50. A lane leads through a wooded area to the upper fields which have magnificent views of surrounding countryside. The farm is ideal for horses and is enrolled in PA Act 319. The property has been preserved with Weisenberg Township to insure its open space. Located in Nortwestern Lehigh School District, the property is a short drive to the Lehigh Valley via I-78 and is just west of Fogelsville. This well maintained property is a fine example of a classic, historic farm situated in a peaceful storybook setting in the picturesque Pennsylvania countryside.
