We have received the honor of listing a very unique property and wanted to share some insight on the home and just a few of its features.
This 1925 old colonial home is like no other. The current homeowners John and Jennifer have spent over 30 years remodeling and loving this gem—and the home has won several York County Builders Association awards over the past years. It is truly a masterpiece throughout. The home features 2,424 square feet of living space and has 3 bedrooms and 2 and a half baths.
Beautifully Designed Interior
Some interior features include a grand living room designed by Frank Auspitz, who was a self-educated expert in 18th-century furniture and architecture. He specialized in designing reproductions of period homes. His design was brought to life by local builder Edward Nace Inc out of Glenville. This living room features chestnut floors and a gorgeous stone wood burning fireplace.
Serene and Expansive Outdoor Space
The home is situated on a very quiet back road with 22.68 acres. The property offers so much. You could hunt, fish for some trout, hike, rock climb or even swim in the inground pool. The current homeowner Jennifer believes the property brings to life many of her favorite poems. Her most favorite being the British poet, William Wordsworth. His poem, I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud, talks of the dancing daffodils and she sees this come to life on those spring days while looking out her large dining room picture window at all the dancing daffodils along the creek bed.
The family has even hosted a croquet tournament on the land for 20 plus years and was featured in a local Lancaster magazine for one of the year’s tournaments.
Unique and Historic Features
A summer kitchen was very common in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The origins of these little structures came about during the summer months when it was much too hot to heat the home while doing your daily cooking, so along came the summer kitchen a separate structure to be used for the “summer” cooking to keep the home cool. This property features a lovely summer kitchen with a vaulted open beam ceiling and a wood burning wood stove. This would be a great home office or studio.
Talk about a home that has it all: it is ready for work, fun and everyday life.
