Historic House Listings

Over three acres in Pennsylvania. Circa 1859. Love the exposed beams! $375,000

Would love to know the history of this one! This house was built in 1859. It is located on 3.3 acres in Quarryville, Pennsylvania. Love the exposed beams and the wide plank hardwood floors. The home has an original stone well on the front porch. The property has a modern drilled well for daily use. That curved staircase reminds me of mine at the Sunshine Cottage! House looks bigger than the square footage they have listed. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,664 square feet. $375,000

From the Zillow listing:


Your journey to peace and tranquility begins as you drive through the country side and even pass through a covered bridge on your way home to this centuries old Colonial Stone Farmhouse. As soon as you open the door you are greeted with old world charm including hardwood floors and exposed beams. The home features a first floor office space that with the addition of a closet could be used as an additional bedroom. The original curved staircase leads you to the upper level where you’ll find a powder room and a spacious master bedroom with two closets. The third bedroom does have a privacy violation. You will enjoy the mature landscape and a seasonal creek in the front of the property. You will feel like you have stepped back in time but be able to enjoy modern conveniences with none of the headaches of owning an old home. The home has been completely updated including colonial style replacement windows. This is a Hall and Parlor House (see documents for a description and meaning). This stunning home would allow you to own a piece of Lancaster County history!
