Circa 1835, a post-Colonial original, stone and planked Homestead feels plucked from the past, edged by split rail fence, woods and fields. Farmette-style living conjures up photo moments of growing up and gathering farm-to-table edibles from 4-square gardens. Imagine favorite pets, free-range eggs, homemade pies and growing the legendary Three Sisters: squash, corn, beans. Enhance the natural aura by adding heritage flowers and plantings, as in yesteryear. This Home is ideal for making memories. Modernized for today~s conveniences, Chef~s Kitchen awaits culinary harvests with upscale appliances such as Thermador convection oven, microwave & refrigerator hiding in cabinets, hanging rack, exquisite period design cabinetry, pantry, breakfast nook and bar, custom farm sink and soapstone counter tops. Wash up with a double drawer Fisher Paykel dishwasher. Spacious Great Room adjacent to Dining Room enhances family time entertaining and friends stopping by for fellowship. Formal Dining Room with new pine wood ceiling and first floor Parlor room for library, crafts or games. Interior charms, with abundance of natural light, showcase Master bedroom plus 3 additional bedrooms including ensuite 5th bedroom, 2 full baths, and unique window bed overlooking the grounds. Among its federal mystique are front and back stairways, original random width pine boards, chair rails, crown molding, transom lites, cross&bible doors, strap latches, iron locks, deep window sills, replica 9X6 & 6X6 panes, and awesome original built-in wall cupboards, including original floor-to-ceiling corner cupboard with skeleton key. Meander outside to several covered porches, explore pathways, watch deer peaking from woods, birds singing at dusk and dawn; relax by a cozy slate patio and fire pit, breath nature~s fragrances & fresh air, moon-watch, be mesmerized by lightning bugs, fire cracklings and eat s~mores! Large newly paved parking area and workshop. Community conveniences and major highways are easy access. Washington Boro, Susquehanna River access and the hill called Turkey are minutes away. Make a dream come true; just click your heels 3 times and you~ll be Home!
