274 CHARMING FORGE RD, Womelsdorf, PA 19567  

Arguably the finest "country" house in the early days of our state, the Charming Forge Mansion (1784) features "Philadelphia" quality woodwork in every room. The early wing (1749) is nearly intact from the colonial days when "Baron" Stiegel of Manheim, the original iron master, found the setting "charming". It remains so with the surroundings along the Tulpehocken Creek protected by a local land trust. A museum quality restoration began in 1994, modern amenities were installed with remarkable care and sensitivity. This is a fine antique house for a modern lifestyle, w/designer kitchen, 7 bed chambers, 7 working fireplaces, 4 full baths, radiant heat, central air, stocked trout stream, etc. Outbuildings received the same careful attention: a carriage barn large enough for four cars, a privy housing a generator, a summer kitchen, bake oven and an ancillary stone dwelling. In the early 19th century, the Union Canal was built in front of the property. The towpath and canal bed remain along with the stone arch tunnel and a lock further downstream.
