Property Description

Homes are built to stand the test of time, and it takes a combination of history and ingenuity to create something grand. Nestled in the woods of the Conestoga River, in the heart of Lancaster County, stands a completely private, modern, colonial brick farmhouse, built on 76.1 acres to be a home for hunting, fishing, horse riding, hosting events, and possibilities. Boasting incredible income potential, this sprawling property includes a 3850 sqft, 4 bed, 3.5 bath home with a 40’x16’ pool and a 1129 sq ft guest house. The architecture of this home is matched only by the equestrian, post and beam, bank barn made from hand-laid field stone, providing a charming and rustic venue for events, weddings, and large-scale gatherings. An additional benefit of this sprawling estate are seasonal hunting opportunities for small and big game animals such as trophy whitetail deer, wild turkey, and red foxes. An abundance of wildlife and rare birds, such as herons, ducks, and hummingbirds grace the property as well. Many of these animals have made this beautiful estate their home, grazing on food plots of clover and native plants. Marvel over the sites of newborn deer running and playing as their mothers pluck fruit from apple and peach tree orchards. There are also two fenced gardens for growing seasonal organic produce; one produces a hearty crop of blueberries annually. Built on a site which includes two spring-fed, stocked ponds, a stream, approximately 55 acres of woodlands, and 21 acres of tillable, open pasture, so many possibilities abound. This extremely private estate was built in 2009 by the current owners of this architectural landmark, a primary residence with charming features and utilitarian details. Fully furnished with tasteful décor chosen by the esteemed interior designer David Lyall, you will find superbly kept oakwood flooring throughout both the main floor and the upstairs. The Post and Beam barn situated behind the primary residence is a magnificent Equestrian Bank Barn. This hand-crafted, post and beam barn is a remarkable illustration of the highly sought craftsman, Ephraim Riehl. The barn is a stunning combination of architectural ingenuity, history, and craftsmanship, utilizing techniques from the early 1800s featuring hand-laid fieldstone and hand-hewn beams secured with mortise and tenon joints. The livestock area contains room for five horses and includes a double birthing stall, 1 inch rubber matting, automatic feeders and waterers, a tack room, and a washing stall (also a very convenient setup for butchering the deer you will hunt on the property). The second level of the barn is a massive 42x50 feet, and it is the perfect venue for ceremonies, parties, concerts, or any event you can dream up! The timber frame and mortise and tenon joints in the loft area provide the perfect, arcadian backdrop to your events. Only a 15-minute drive from Lancaster City, this estate’s remarkable size and seclusion offers a very desirable lifestyle. For investors, the property provides cash-flowing income potential. The guest house has attracted professionals for an NOI of $18,000, tillable acreage has leased for $1,100, the horse stalls lease for $24-30,000 annually, and hunting leases have been requested though never granted. Offer the beautiful estate as a Lancaster wedding venue and claim $9-10,000 per event. The homes are also an exquisite choice for a bed and breakfast. Many opportunities abound on over 70 acres with lax zoning codes. Low annual taxes of just $13,665. Schedule a tour of this exciting property today!
