    Description

    This custom-built 3,192 square foot, 4 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Bathroom Split-Level Home sits on top picturesque 11+ acre lot with an adjacent 10-acre (Available For Sale) with panoramic views of Appalachian and Blue Ridge Mountains located in Upper Mount Bethel Township, Northampton County. The owners purchased the original parcel as virgin land in 2008 and created the USDA Certified Organic Operation, "Spruce Ridge Farm" which provided fresh produce to Wegmans Organic Farm & Orchard Program. The original lot was strategically subdivided in 2020 to provide additional expansion opportunities with a separate address, driveway and individual parcels preserving the tax advantages of Act 319 Clean and Green Act, without the restrictions of the PA Farmland Preservation Act. The farm has a 250' deep well at 30 (GPM), livestock-quality water, excellent soils, good access to markets, and well-maintained improvements. The outbuildings include a 12+GGx30+GG garage, 30+GGx40+GG pole barn, 16+GGx46+GG hay barn, and a 12+GGx14+GG greenhouse all with concrete floors, separate electric and water supply. The six separate fenced, "paddock grazing systems" with separate water supply provide an excellent environment suitable for cattle, pigs, horses, and livestock and crates the 'closed loop' agriculture system. The drainage, soil, and topography of the tillable acreage is the ideal location for a grape vineyard, winery, equestrian, or "gentleman's Farm". Conveniently located on PA Route 611, a short drive from Delaware Water Gap National Park and New Jersey border with easy access to Interstate I-80, I-78 PA Route 33, U.S. Route 22, and Martz Trailways providing Bus Transport to New York City, Philadelphia, Lehigh Valley and other markets. Located in Upper Mount Bethel Township in Northampton County, Pennsylvania, a quiet, peaceful lifestyle in a rural setting with a lot of lands filled with farms, livestock, and native wildlife. This is an area with highly sought-after farmland minutes from The Delaware Water Gap National Park, Appalachian trail on the border of New Jersey with easy access to. As an organic farm operation, you would enjoy the benefit of deep, fertile soils, on-site access to manure, compost, and the benefit of an average annual rainfall of 49 inches and 33 inches of snow. The agronomic practice of crop rotation using winter rye as a cover crop has and improve the soil's physical properties, water holding capacity, and aggregate stability to the point where organic produce needs no other irrigation other than rainfall. The drainage, soil, and topography of the tillable acreage is the ideal location for a grape vineyard in one of Pennsylvania's 200 plus wineries. The separate adjacent Agriculture 10-acre parcel, (Available for Sale), provides an additional driveway on PA Route 611 with the tax advantage of Act 319," Clean and Green Act". This opens many more possibilities such as a winery, farm stand, wedding location, crop production, stable or horse farm. The owner recently sub-divided the original 33-acre parcel into 3 separate parcels each maintaining the PA Act 319 Assessment. The 11.59 acre - 914 S Delaware Drive is a fully functioning transferable USDA Certified Organic Farm and the adjacent 10 acre - 1000 S Delaware Drive is part of the original farmland and is zoned agricultural. This allowed for a PennDOT-approved driveway that expands the possible potential uses. The barns and fenced "paddock grazing systems" with automatic water feeds are easily convertible to horse stable and possible equestrian center. Also, the highly fertile soil is suitable for a grape vineyard as shown from the success of M & M Winery just down the road at 18 Shepherds Hill Drive, Bangor. The owner is in a position to consider owner financing for the right situation. Great opportunity for a farm, wine, or equestrian entrepreneur looking to start a rewarding lifestyle in the Lehigh Valley Region of Pennsylvania.
