Be a part of the history of this rambling and cozy stone farmhouse in the country! Located in still rural Salford Township but with the award-winning Souderton School District, the house sits on 6 grassy and wooded private acres surrounded by hundreds of acres of undevelopable forest and fields. It is a dream for gardeners, nature lovers, history buffs, DIYers, or those who seek a more tranquil life - without sacrificing close proximity to social amenities. Living in this house affords owners easy access to country roads right outside the door as well as public parks and lands with opportunities for hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking, cross country skiing, and other outdoor pursuits. There are 3 major grocery stores within a 5-10 minute drive and plenty of restaurants offering a variety of cuisines. Center City Philadelphia, Allentown, Manhattan, the Poconos, Jersey Shore, and even Washington DC are an easy drive or train/bus ride. Philadelphia, Newark, and JFK airports are very accessible. There is plenty of storage in the 3600 square feet of house that includes an attic and walk-out basement, as well as in the large bank barn and smaller barn. There is room to park up to 5-6 cars in the covered carport. To fully take advantage of what nature has to offer, the house has a wraparound front porch, and screened in back porch and outside deck overlooking the secluded backyard. There are culinary, medicinal, herb, vegetable, and flower gardens, as well as a grapevine and cherry trees, while wild berries grow all summer near the walking trails that cover the property. The first level of the house was renovated by the owners including a fabulous farmhouse kitchen with exposed stone walls and beams, original hardwood floors, and a large island covered with original barn wood. The living room and renovated second floor bathroom also have an exposed stone wall. The “gear room” was designed to store sporting equipment and has room for workout equipment. Central AC provides comfort in stuffy summers, and a gorgeous pellet stove in the dining room provides an additional heating source to the oil burner and radiators. Six amply sized rooms (and two bathrooms) on the second floor could all be made into bedrooms, or one or more home offices or yoga/crafting room. The attic and basement have ample storage space; the washer and dryer are in the basement, included in the sale. The history of the house, researched by historians who lived here in the 1970s is provided. You can be part of the history of this lovely idyllic property too!
