That basement fireplace! Almost two acres in Pennsylvania. $250,000

April 13, 2024

In love with that English basement! That cooking fireplace is so cool! They have a build date of 1890 for this house. But that basement with the cooking stove and that huge beam, makes us think it is earlier. But nothing upstairs screams it’s old. It says it was renovated in 1985. The house is located on 1.76 acres in New Cumberland, Pennsylvania. The house features a covered front porch, english basement with large cooking fireplace, hardwood floors, crown moulding, wide baseboards and built-in bookshelves. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and 1,408 square feet. $250,000
