48 Acre Lehigh County Farm
Circa 1770 Stone End Log House - Beautiful Stone Bank Barn –
Long Private Driveway - Phenomenal Storybook
Setting - Exceptional Views
This very rare stone
end/log farm house nestled in the middle of 48 beautiful
acres was most likely constructed while Pennsylvania was
still an English colony and Lehigh County was part of Bucks
County. It is a wonderful example of an early historic
Pennsylvania farmstead. Enter into the beautiful storybook
setting by driving down the long, 1,200 foot private
driveway passing fruit trees and a large, tranquil pond on
the way to the charming farm house. The oldest log/stone
portion of the house probably dates to around 1770. A
wonderful example of this early form of architecture is
pictured in the recent book, “Bucks County Farmhouses” by
Jeffery L. Marshall. This type of construction is often
referred to as a stone end log house because the end where
the fireplace is located is constructed entirely of stone.
The other 3 sides of the main house are log construction.
Attached to the rear of the main house is a circa 1860
addition. A third high quality recent addition to the side
of the 1860 addition completes the house. The house features
an original stone fireplace with stove insert, exposed
original logs, open ceiling beams throughout, living room
with staircase, family room with large windows,
kitchen/dining room, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 1st floor
laundry, and pie stairs to the attic in the original section
of the house. There is a full basement under the original
house and the 1860 addition along with a crawl space under
the newest addition. Every window in the house affords
beautiful views. Sit on the covered front porch which
overlooks an original stone springhouse and take in the
breathtaking vistas of the Lower Milford countryside. The
magnificent Pennsylvania stone bank barn is in excellent
condition and looks like a scene from a Wyeth painting.
Other buildings include a 36x40 Morton pole building which
is used as a garage and for machine storage. There is also
an 18x26 workshop. This phenomenal 48 acre tract of land has
a pleasing mix of approximately 2/3 tillable ground and
about 1/3 of the property is wooded. This is an exceptional,
preserved southern Lehigh County farm; ideal for horses or
fine country living. It is nearly impossible to find a
historic farm with this type of storybook setting. Located
in Lower Milford Township, this property is close to
Zionsville, Limeport, Coopersburg, and a short commute to
Allentown or Philadelphia.
