    Description

    Oley Historic Stone, Creek & Guest Cottage Tucked away in the privacy seclusion of a sprawling 6.05-acre property beautified by impressive evergreens, a babbling creek, and the protected farmland all around is a historic treasure, built during the Civil War. Venture down the winding driveway, up the covered front patio, and through the front door to find beautiful random-width, hardwood flooring flowing throughout the main level and into the spacious living and dining rooms with an elegant crown molding touch. The kitchen is highlighted by a wood ceiling with exposed beams, solid wood cabinets, and a breakfast area overlooking the backyard, while off the kitchen is a nice-sized laundry with built-in storage cabinets. The family room boasts more hardwood flooring with wood ceilings, and an oversized, walk-in stone fireplace and chimney, both which were replaced and updated. An old fashion warming shelf and wood stove are quick to catch your eye, while the sunroom enjoys a wood ceiling, views from every angle, its own charcoal, brick stove, and access to another walk-in fireplace and brick oven. Choose to make your way upstairs by the curved staircase in the foyer or the secondary staircase off of the family room where the spacious four bedrooms and bonus room, each with wood details, share two full bathrooms. The main bedroom offers a hidden wall vault as well. A detached, 3-bay garage has cedar siding and high ceilings, plus an attached finished area with heat and AC, a full bath, and hot tub, offering potential as an exercise area or separate office space. The unique antiquity of this home is only to be outdone by the property+GGs historically restored carriage house, believed to be one of the oldest buildings in Oley. The matching stone exterior and shake, clay roof exude plenty of charming character, while an extra storage shed, separate electric and water service make it an ideal rental opportunity. Inside, you+GGll discover more of the random-width hardwood floors, exposed beams, and Mount Mary+GGs rock embellishing the main home.. Other features include unique, built-in shelving in the living room and vaulted ceilings in the two, second level bedroom options. Nestled amongst the trees, both the covered front porch and the spacious, slate patio offer the perfect place to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and listen to the following waters of the creek.
