    Description

    This amazing and unique 16-acre property with two spring-fed ponds has a 2-bedroom historic home, a workshop/artist studio plus a 1-bedroom apartment over the new 3 car garage. This peaceful retreat is internet & cable ready for those working from home. The cool mountain air is an escape from the heat and humidity - DC and Baltimore are 1 1/2 hours away, Gettysburg, PA and Frederick, MD are less than 30 minutes away, Waynesboro, PA is 15 minutes away._______________History tells us that General Robert E. Lee stopped at this farm on his retreat from Gettysburg in 1863. The property was originally settled by a Benchoff in the late 1700's._______________As one approaches through manicured, professionally landscaped grounds, the house is down a private driveway, through a small wooded area that opens to reveal the expansive secluded estate, with a gorgeous storybook restored stone house, numerous log out-buildings and two spring-fed ponds with cascading falls. Further down the driveway & past the house, is a large over-sized 3 car garage built on the footprint of the old barn, with a spacious, 2 story studio/workshop & a one-bedroom, apartment perfect for the craftsman, artist, or woodworker. This workshop & apartment area could be redesigned as a traditional home &the stone house could be a B & B or guest house. The property's versatility is unmatched with so many potential uses._______________The current owners have taken pride in their ownership tenure, preserving the home~s historic detailing, including the original heart of pine wood floors, hand hewed ceiling chestnut logs, & 2 story porches with amazing restful views, while tastefully upgrading its modern amenities that include a charming country kitchen, custom bookcases, & a finished family room in the walkout basement. The log spring house is constructed with wooded pegs and is a play house with loft._______________There are beautifully maintained trails that meander through the estates wooded areas that are rich with wildlife, including deer, wild turkey & a full complement of birds & plant life. The grounds are ideal for the avid gardener & for the outdoor enthusiast. The house features 2 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, while above the garage, the apartment features 1 bedroom, a full bathroom and kitchenette. The heating systems have been updated._______________For winter distraction, this property is just minutes away from Ski Liberty Resort and 40 minutes from Whitetail Ski resort, two of the east coasts premiere winter sports destinations. Fine restaurants & shopping are close by . . . yet a world away.
