This stone house on 16 beautiful acres with manicured, professionally landscaped grounds & lush forest is located on Blue Ridge Summit in Pennsylvania just one mile from the Maryland line.~History tells us that General Robert E. Lee stopped at this farm on his retreat from Gettysburg in 1863.One approaches the house 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 2 spring-fed ponds with cascading falls. Further down the driveway & past the house, is a large over-sized 3 car garage with a spacious, 2 story studio/workshop and a one bedroom apartment - perfect for the craftsman, artist or woodworker.---------The current owners have taken pride in their ownership tenure, preserving the home~s historic detailing, including the original heart of pine wood floors & 2 story porches, while tastefully enhancing its modern amenities that include a charming country kitchen, a finished family room in the walkout basement & a new over-size garage constructed on the original footprint of the old barn. The house features 2 bedrooms & 1.5 bathrooms, while the garage features 1 bedroom, a kitchenette & a full bathroom. The heating systems have been updated and the property is cable ready.-------The landscaping has been thoughtfully designed and the grounds are ideal for the avid gardener and for the outdoor enthusiast. There are beautifully maintained trails that meander through the estate's wooded areas that are rich with wildlife, including deer, wild turkey & a full complement of birds and plant life.-------This beautifully restored historic stone home is truly unique in the marketplace. The property~s versatility is unmatched and its uses may include a wonderful weekend retreat, B&B, or perhaps simply a beautiful, restful private estate~where the owner can enjoy the many South Mountain hiking trails and Civil War historic sites, like Gettysburg (only 20 minutes by car). For winter distraction, this property is just minutes from Ski Liberty Resort & 40 minutes from Whitetail Ski Resort, two of the east coast~s premiere winter sport~s destinations. Fine restaurants & shopping can be found 30 minutes away in Hagerstown and Frederick.------This is a historic estate of rare and beautiful distinction, close to DC and Baltimore, yet a world away.
