48 Acre Lehigh County Farm
New Listing

Circa 1770 Stone End Log House - Beautiful Stone Bank Barn – Large Pond
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.

Price: $950,000
