97 ACRE FARM
LOCATED BETWEEN ALLENTOWN & READING
WITH POTENTIAL FOR 1600’ AIR STRIP

This tract has a beautiful setting along a wooded mountain in eastern Berks County, Longswamp Township. The farm includes 50 acres of mature timber, a 2 acre lake, an ever flowing stream and string, and over 35 acres of cropland. The improvements consist of a 60 x 80 hanger building with an attached modest 3 bedroom apartment, garage, and workshop. The farm offers a tranquil setting with many ideal sites for a home or several homes, wooded sites, sites near the mountain with a countryside view, lots with view of the lake or next to the stream with the sound of the running water. The tract is just minutes from both Allentown and Reading as well as being convenient to many major highways such as I-78 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

There is an additional bonus of a potential for a private airstrip on the property. The farm had formerly been used as an airstrip from around 1950 until just a few years ago; however, it was never licenses as an airstrip because its use pre-dates any licensing regulations. It is believed it can be licensed as a private use airport with some minor repairs to the runway and an inspection by the Pennsylvania Bureau of Aviation. The zoning regulations permit private use air strips as a special exception in this area.

Price: $565,000.
