Lancaster house description

Sylvan Retreat

Retreat back into time in this 1867 vintage schoolhouse. Having all the amenities of home, it is nestled in 3.5 acres of woodland and meadow. Sit on a rocker on the front porch and take in the view of the valley, or walk the trail and see nature firsthand. Kids will like their own special area in the pine grove.

The house has an open layout with the living room, dining room, and kitchen all part of a common area. Two bedrooms are off of this room, one with a large sleigh king bed, the other with a queen bed and view of the meadow. A full bath is on this first floor, as well as a laundry room. The kitchen is fully equipped, should you wish to cook.

The second floor is another large room with old-style knotty pine paneling and wall-to-wall new shag carpeting. With a built-in queen bed, single bed, and bunk beds, it sleeps 5. There is a full bath on this second floor as well. Each of the 3 bedrooms has its own TV/DVD. Has Wifi.

Although our Sylvan Retreat has a secluded feel, it is only 2 minutes from nearby Rte. 30, the gateway to such attractions as Amish Country (20 min. drive), the Gettysburg battlefield (1 hr., 20 min.), and Hershey Amusement Park (30 min). The nearby small towns of Columbia and Wrightsville lie on opposite sides of the Susquehanna River and have numerous attractions for the day traveler.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: This property has been in the Holzinger family for 60 years. As the owner, I bought the property 2 years ago from my uncle and aunt. They initially bought the property in 1948 and had it converted from a schoolhouse into a residence.

                      Why the Owner Chose Lancaster:
                      I purchased this home from my uncle and aunt, who lived there for 58 years.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      You are close to nature in this setting. The house is very cozy, with a fireplace and large windows to look out. The second floor "bunk room" has new wall to wall carpeting and real knotty pine walls. A hiking trail runs through the property.
