Dutch Country estate description

Enter through the private gate to your own world of relaxation and enjoyment. Three quarter miles of private roads leading to the 7500sf main house with all of the necessary amenities. There are several historic building on the property dating to the 1700's and two cemeteries one on the historic registry. As well as a hunting cabin with panoramic views of the Susquehanna River. One half mile of river frontage. Enjoy hiking the six plus miles of meadows and wooded trails,fishing in the mile wide river or the stream wrapping the property, go boating, canoeing, play volleyball or badminton , ride or swim in your private pool.
This is the most livable home away from home for large family gatherings or a private getaway for two.
There are unlimited day trips to Lancaster, Baltimore, MD, Wilmington, DE ,York, PA and Philadelphia. Longwood Gardens, visiting Museums, antiquing, horse races, country fairs, visiting Amish country, holiday celebrations or simply dining along the Susquehanna River, leaves plenty to do and see.

Three finished levels, with ample space, make the house ideal for entertaining. Whether it’s dining in the gourmet kitchen, relaxing on the large porch overlooking the fields and pool, or enjoying company in the downstairs game room. There’s even an upstairs loft area, that’s a perfect hideaway for guests. No matter where you are, you can be sure each room looks out to beautiful scenery.

This property is secluded, and peaceful. At night the only sound to break the quiet is the rumble of the on coming train across the river and the whistle as it approaches a small town or tunnel.

Also, available for separate rental is a cabin nestled in the woods that overlooks the river. Enjoy sitting on it's large front porch or swinging in the hammock. The cabin has two bedrooms and two lofts, sleeps eight. This is a rustic cabin, with 12v solar electricity, rain collected water, wood stove, gas grill, a composting toilet , propane refrigerator and ceiling fan.

              Year Purchased: 1990

              About: Our love of old building has lead us to a career of restoring old buildings making them functional without losing their character,

              Why Dutch Country:
              We are the second owners since William Penn and Lord Baltimore. It was in the Cooper family for over 200 years, the original owner came over to America in 1734 and is buried in the cemetery here on the farm as well as some Civil War Veterans of the family. The terrain here is lovely and rolling, with beautiful views. Although it was in deplorable condition when we bought it, we fell in love with it on first sight. It has been a labor of love ever since.

              The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
              The main house we built in 2004. It is comfortable for the two of us but also great for when the family comes to visit for reunions and holidays.
