This amazing and unique stone home is nestled in a private, partially wooded setting on the banks of the Susquehanna River. With 16 exquisite acres of river frontage, the secluded, natural setting offers gorgeous views with the convenience of a location just ten minutes from Harrisburg. Exact age of home is unknown but tax records show age as1930. It appears the east side of the home might have been built before 1900 because of the stone foundation. The west side has a block foundation. Either way, this home is graced by many features that hearken back to yesteryear featuring wood floors, deep windowsills and wide moldings, alcoves, some arched doorways, plus a picture-book perfect covered front porch for soaking in the sights. The kitchen features recessed lighting, built-in desk and a pantry, while the living room is accented by a mammoth brick hearth with woodstove. Paint colors infuse soft, airy hues and pastels. You'll even find a convenient first floor laundry room with slate floor. Some cosmetic updates are needed, but you will be hard pressed to find another location that offers 16 private acres with a view and location as spectacular this. And the historic integrity of this property resonates from room to room, top to bottom. The house is situated on the Old Penn Canal. Local legend has it that the property had a boarding house and stables as an over night stop on the Canal. The Inn burned down and a heavy snow and flood demolished the stables. A horse drawn carriage could be rented to view the country side or travel to Harrisburg. A variety of kousa, white, and pink dogwoods, century old red maple trees, sweet chestnut and gum trees, a row of century old red bud trees, and a blueberry orchard shade the grounds, adding to the sheltered location and enhancing the idyllic river views. So whether you enjoy hiking, fishing, boating, gardening, outdoor activities, or nature itself, you owe it to yourself to view this truly remarkable property.
