    Property Details

    Calling all of those old-home enthusiasts who love to restore historic-era homes to their past glory! Built somewhere between 1820 and 1840, this charming stone farmhouse is the pallet you have been looking for where you can create your masterpiece. The home is situated on a stunning 4.96 lot that is partially open, where fruit trees were a few short years ago producing bushels of fresh peaches and apples, while the rest of the lot is a gorgeous wooded paradise where deer, turkey and other wildlife call home. The Little Manatawny Creek even briefly crosses across the lot on its northernmost corner. The original 35'6 X 22' footprint of the home features a gorgeous field-stone exterior that was professionally re-pointed just last year at the cost of $14,000. The window wells are almost two feet deep adding to the that original farm-house feel. The Summer Kitchen lay to the rear of the home and still includes the large fireplace where meals were once prepared over an open fire, and the bake oven is still accessible in the back of the fireplace. In this room, it is easy to envision a tree adorned for the holidays with its twinkling lights providing a classic ambiance guaranteed to enhance the spirit from within. At one point a breezeway was constructed to connect the two original sections of the home together. During the early ownership of the current seller, an additional room was added for the current owner's print shop. Local artist Alan Boyer created note cards, calendars and prints of his paintings of local historic buildings and covered bridges. Those floors are heavily reinforced to accommodate the heavy printer and cutter that once occupied the room. This space has plenty of windows and would make a great home office, hobby room, or playroom. Back to the main home, there is a spacious Living Room that has a stone fireplace that was converted to be fueled by propane gas. French doors lead into the Dining Area and Kitchen where an abundance of cabinet and counter space can be found. Here, frequent Oley Fair Baking champion Anna Boyer created pies, cakes, cookies and other confections that landed her many red, blue and yellow ribbons for her baking excellence. As you venture upstairs, you will find three generously sized bedrooms and a modern bath. Attic storage is provided above. Ruscombmanor Township is situated in the much desired Oley Valley School District, and the Oley Valley locale is nationally recognized as one of the most historically preserved rural areas in the country, teeming with beautiful farmlands and well preserved farm houses. This home is looking for that special new owner who has the vision and desire to restore it to its former period feel...is that you?
