ANNVILLE, Pennsylvania, 17003 $249,900
Idyllic 5-acre residential lot in Annville-Cleona school district with a rolling trout stream offers the convenience of location (3 minutes from elementary/middle/high schools, 17 min from Hershey Med) and safety of nearby neighbors without sacrificing the privacy and luxuriousness of an estate lot. Truly the best of both worlds, this last remaining lot of Behney Estates is fully equipped with public sewer, public water, natural gas, electric, telephone and cable TV. Step away from modern troubles and walk along its limestone walls & bridge (built by owners and their ancestors), rest your eyes on the scenery of a rustic farm, and allow your mind to be calmed by the dancing stream. The property has 100 yards of frontage along Bachman Run, a PA-approved trout stream. Imagine yourself entering safely through Olde South Crossing and onto your private 50-foot wide access lined with spruce trees. Get lost among the foliage and sounds of nature, spend a few hours on the tree stand observing or archery hunting, then walk down to your private stream to catch trout for dinner. There's room for a barn and an enclosure for horse lovers. This lot serves as a conduit for whitetail dear traveling through the area, as well as other wildlife such as foxes, heron, and Pennsylvania's rich variety of resident birds. Though easily accessible to the neighborhood's walking trail, sidewalks, and soft lights, this lot is not associated with the HOA. The 2 equipment sheds currently on the lot house tractors and machines to maintain the property and are negotiable. Sheds can be sold to local farmers for a substantial return. Owner was also offered a healthy sum for the black walnut trees hand-planted by the owner many years ago if you would like to have some cut down and sold. Active plans for the lot include installing stakes and blue spruce trees to delineate the entrance, and clearing some of the foliage on the land to give you a better idea of the landscape. More photos forthcoming! Owners have fond memories of carefree childhood days, courtship, and raising their family on this beautiful section of Central Pennsylvania, all which was farmland back in the day. It was a difficult choice to forgo building their dream home on this lot, but they have made the choice to move halfway across the country to be close to their children and grandchildren. The lovely owners hope the richness this land imbued for decades of their lives will carry onto the next family---it is truly a magical place to make your dreams come true.
