                      This 4 bedroom stone farmhouse is located in the serene countryside of east York County near the Susquehanna River within an easy distance of York Fairgrounds or Lancaster county sightseeing and outlet shopping. Perfect for that weekend getaway or business travelers to Harley Davidson or other local businesses. 20 minutes to Dutch Wonderland, an hour to Hershey Park or Gettysburg, the farmhouse provides a convenient, yet private home base from which to enjoy the delights of the Amish country and York County countryside. The FarmHouse is also a place to just relax, on the back porch with your favorite beverage or take chair to one of the many private views and read a book while listening to nature around you. Many families enjoy bringing the extended family together in the comfort of a house large enough that you can always find a private spot.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      Why the Owner Chose York:
                      This stone house is larger than the typical stone farmhouse in the countryside. It has a unique and private setting away from the road near the quarry where the building stone was extracted. Most stone homes we surveyed were located on busy streets or in downtown areas. We like the private setting within an easy distance of Rt. 30, approximately one (1) mile away.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      Sitting on the back porch at night with a glass of wine, listening to the crickets is just - relaxing. We enjoy wandering around the yard looking at the flower gardens which are interesting in all seasons.
