Welcome to the sought-after low taxes of Spring-Ford Area School District and a farm house property which offers the best of both worlds; high convenience and privacy. Federal-style architecture was highly popular just about the time our 1830's 3-story/no basement farmhouse was built. Mounted on .54-acres and modernized over the years, the property still holds much of its old-world character like; 7'x26' covered front porch, deep window sills, thick curved masonry walls, solid wood doors, hallway built-in, a 12'x20' concrete main floor walk-in root cellar off the living room, large country eat-in kitchen, original pine hardwood floors, built-in closets/shelving throughout, yard access from the main floor laundry room, stone terrace access to the upper level owner's bedroom and terrace garden hardscaping. The intelligent construction and design of the home; slightly built into a hill, thick masonry walls, room/window/door sizes and construction materials, provide a sustainable, green lifestyle. The property maintains a comfortable year-round temperature all while utility bills stay very low. NO BASEMENT in the farm house means no basement/foundation/radon issues and a main floor laundry. There is a plethora of storage throughout the main and carriage houses. The original carriage house was added on to in the 1930's fitting it for motor vehicles and full living quarters above. It also includes an extensive radon reduction system installed by specialist S.J. Watras Inc. and a new heating system like the farm house as of 2015.
