Civil war era farmhouse, with barn, out buildings and tillable acreage, woods and perennial (always-flowing) stream through the property.
The house sits high, overlooking a large, nicely landscaped, white fenced yard with gorgeous views of the lush, productive fields (currently being leased) and a neighboring 18 hole golf course, with mountains in the distance.
In the family home there are 4 large bedrooms and 3 ½ baths (1 full, 2 three-quarter, and 1 half-bath), a spacious eat-in kitchen adjoining a large formal dining room, a large living room, and a bright, cozy sitting room with a beautiful stone fireplace and a half bath.
The full, finished, walk-out basement includes a large family/tv/game room with a brick fireplace and lots of storage (including a closet where laundry drops through a chute from the bedroom level), a small greenhouse, an additional guest bedroom or office, a three piece bathroom, a large laundry room with ample storage, a furnace room, a workshop, and a cold cellar.
There is an insulated and finished bonus room above the attached 2.5 car garage that could be used as an additional playroom, office or craft area and has storage space under the eaves.
The lower level of the 30 X 60 bank barn has double barn doors on each end, 2 standing stalls, 3 pens, and a large open area that could be enclosed (with full length, cement feeding troughs along both sides). The barn’s large, open, upper level, with curved laminated rafters, also has a set of two, wide barn doors, accessed from the uphill side of the barn. There are stairs that can also be used as a hay bale chute.
There is a full length workshop by the barn, with a covered area between the two, and overhead garage doors on each end of the workshop.
The outbuildings include 2 large and 1 smaller pole buildings and a detached garage with an attic shop area, all near the barn. There is also a large pole building in the meadow, near a stream that runs through the entire property.
The farm is located just outside Milton, PA, in Northumberland County. It is in close proximity to Bucknell University and under an hour and a half drive to Penn State University. Evangelical Community Hospital is just under 7 miles away and Geisinger Medical Center is just over 15 miles away. It is also just a few hours from New York, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., with easy access to route I-80.
