I like this chestnut log home! The price doesn’t seem bad considering the acreage. This home was built in 1920. It is located on roughly 13 acres in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. The home features a covered front porch, stone chimney, hardwood floors, exposed beams and some log walls. The property has a circular driveway and a detached garage. Five bedrooms, three bathrooms and 2,517 square feet. $399,500
