1458 OLD BERNVILLE RD, Leesport, PA 19533  

The "Loom Room" is situated along the original Bernville Road before Route 183 was built. Saying this is a one of a kind property is a bit of an understatement. The keystone atop the right side elevation indicates a nineteenth century year of 1842, representing artisans and builders from a time honored era. A log cabin was moved to this location during the former ownership and attached to the main farmhouse combining two treasured and unique styles. Care was taken to incorporate the two buildings into a uncompromised and comfortable fit. Highlighting that fact are two first floor kitchens, two living rooms and even double laundry areas. There are a total of five generous sized bedrooms with high ceilings, wide decorative moldings, foot and a half windowsills and random width floorings. While the outside of the structures have been meticulously cared for with fresh paint, the inside rooms provide a blank canvas for the imaginative owner~to add their personal touches. Four "cosmetic"~fireplaces (NOT UP TO CURRENT BUILDING CODES) take you back to the time when they were the sole source of heat providing the occupants of the home the comfort necessary to survive the cool falls and harsh winters. The summer kitchen fireplace was the perfect area to tell stories of the day with friends. The property~had served as~a quaint bed and breakfast in a natural yet beautiful setting. There are gardens for all seasons, a gazebo and fish pond, a storage shed~and a~compact greenhouse to provide vegetables year round. Beyond the trails, flowers and deciduous majestic trees is an open area to the rear of the property for holding a~tented celebration, badminton and volleyball tournaments and large gatherings for cookouts. Adding to the uniqueness of the main farmhouse is a solar powered electric system that generates enough power to reduce the charges by the supplier and even allows crediting into the electric grid. There is an oil fired heating system, 220 Volt, 200 Amp electric servic
