          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2010

          About the owner: We are the Karafa Family. Gettysburg is our home away from home. We love civil war reenacting and the peacefulness yet energetic feel that the town and battlefield have to offer.

          Why the Owner Chose Gettysburg:
          We chose this property because we fell in love with the home, history, and area. The house has a rich history. Overall, the property chose us. We would love to share this land and home with others.

          The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
          The home has many different yet unique features. The Victorian style brick farmhouse sits on green, luscious land with the original dutch barn next door. The history is intriguing, as the house was built in 1845 and the barn a few years later. The home offers a very welcoming, peaceful feeling.
