Property Description

This is a rare opportunity to own an absolute gem in southern Berks county. Downsizing is the only reason this property, that has been lovingly cared for, by the current owners, for 46+ years, is hitting the market. This stone farm house has a storied history. It was the main house of the Noble Dairy Farm and, as such, sits a good distance away from the road, unlike many homes of this age, providing quite a bit of privacy. It has been upgraded in just about every way and is a perfect blend of original themes and modern amenities, as you will see. Legend also has it that a very famous musician of the 40’s and 50’s would throw lavish parties after performing at the Sunny Brook Ballroom. House: This home is 3 stories of living space above the basement and provides 5 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The 2nd and 3rd floors are the original Chestnut floors. The first floor is an entertainer’s paradise featuring an updated eat-in kitchen with Stainless Steel appliances, dining room with floor to ceiling wood burning fireplace, that is used on holidays and special occasions, a huge living room with Georgian Pine floor and an office with glass double doors. There is also a heated mud room that leads directly to the kitchen. This is a great spot to place your wet or muddy shoes and clothing before entering the home. This level also has a covered patio area, to move your party to in the event of rain. The walk out lower level contains the workshop area currently being used for crafting and furniture renovation. Grounds: The property is 2.616 acres that was originally 2 deeds and is meticulously maintained, with park like setting vibes. A small stream meanders through the property attracting all types of wildlife. The 30x60 sand filter, inground pool with multiple entertaining areas and a decorative Koi Pond. The former barn is an oversized 2 car detached garage with a separate area for lawn equipment storage and replacement automatic doors and openers. There is a large loft area that could be used for additional storage or could be converted into usable space for art studio, gym etc. The garage is also home to the fully owned solar panel system, negating an electric bill or in some cases providing a credit. The Guest house, which was originally the smoke house for the farm, has one loft bedroom and is perfect for an in-law suite or private space for visiting family and friends. Location: This one of kind property is located in a quiet, rural area, on a low traffic street, within a 1 hour drive from Philadelphia and 2 minute drive to a local golf course and 10 minutes to all major amenities. The possibilities for an Air BNB is something to consider. You don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to own a piece of history.
