Gorgeous Early Stone Farmhouse, circa 1740, features 6 Bedrooms and 5.2 Bathrooms set on just under 23 acres on a quiet county road in Oley. The intact period Farmstead also includes a Stone-End Bank Barn, Corn-crib, Spring-house with Pond, Piggery and a beautiful walled Garden.

Architectural details abound throughout with ornate fireplace mantles, crown molding and wainscoting. The house is perfect for entertaining with a large formal Dining Room, and spacious Gourmet Kitchen featuring a generous Pantry and Butler's Pantry. The Kitchen is a beautiful bright space with a Fireplace and room for a sitting area, as well as a dining table. The Fireplace features a reclaimed mantle and custom hand-painted tiles from Wales.
