Property Description

Here is your chance to own a piece of history! This home was built in 1840 for the manager of the historically preserved and operating Bowmansville Roller Mill. This home is unique because the mill race for the mill goes directly under a portion of the home and joins up downstream with the neighboring creek. Many of the homes original features are still intact such as the wood doors, iron door hardware, 24" deep window sills, stone bread oven (non-operating), exposed stone and wood beams. Appliances have been updated, central air was installed 2 years ago and the furnace is only 3 years old. There is a bank barn and storage barn and have possibilities for endless storage, housing for animals or use your imagination! This 4.4 acre property includes pasture, a stream and mill race, large PA Dutch bank barn and additional storage barn. In-law quarters, multiple flexible room possibilities and updated baths make this property a rare find.
