            There are 2 houses on this exceptional farm in the scenic, quiet area of West Penn Township, Schuylkill County.  The modern 1,800 square foot custom built ranch home has a brick and siding exterior with 3 bedrooms with double closets, huge open living room/family room, spacious kitchen with large center island/eating area and modern appliances including a ceramic cook-top range, formal dining room with large picture window, completely tiled full bath, bath, laundry room and a 2-car oversized garage.  The home features lots of lovely hardwood oak floors and solid white pine 6-panel interior doors.  With its exterior entrance, the finished, heated basement boasts a home office, hobby room, and large multi-purpose space.  There are other unfinished areas of the basement that can be used for storage. The attic has drop-down stairs and offers additional storage.  The home has R-30 insulation in the ceilings and R-19 insulation in the walls, and triple-glazed Anderson windows, making it very comfortable year-round.  Other important features include 200 amp service, hot water baseboard heat driven by a very economical to operate combination EFM  coal stoker/oil burner furnace, a separate central air conditioning system and two whole-house attic fans, water conditioning/softening system and a radon remediation system.  Utilities on this property include cable and satellite, as well as a long range TV/FM antenna. All utilities are underground. There are excellent locations on the property for a wind turbine. A new roof with architectural shingles was installed in 2005.  The property has been professionally landscaped with mature trees and blooming shrubs.

            The 1,200 square foot second home features three 11x10 rooms, a 19x11 kitchen and dining area, a 9x11 sitting room, a 10x29 living room,  full bath and storage room. The second home could be a residential rental or used as professional offices.  The building has electric heat and Anderson windows with additional storm windows, 2 levels of ceiling insulation giving it R-36++ and 3 levels of sidewall insulation, 200 amp electric service and a 58 gallon electric hot water heater. In June 2009, a new architectural shingled roof was installed.

            In late 2008, a new 30 x 32 fully insulated Conestoga building was constructed.  Situated near the main home, it is currently used as a woodworking shop.  The building has R-36 insulation in the ceiling and R-20 insulation in the walls. Other amenities of this building include a concrete floor, dual pane windows, wood lined painted walls, metal ceiling, and 200 amp electric.  It has an overhead door and a pedestrian door. 

            The property is enrolled in the “Clean and Green” Act 319 Program, a program which owners can receive tax abatement for farmland property.  A very unique advantage of owning this property comes as a result of a grant from local businessman and philanthropist John Morgan.  This program offers the first two years of college absolutely free to any Tamaqua Area School District High School Senior with appropriate grade point average.

            The 70 x 36 concrete block horse barn has thirteen 12x10 stalls.  Seven 10 x 12 stalls have private galvanized pipe 10 x 22 turn out runs.  The 6 stalls on the other side of the wide 12 foot aisle have removable partitions to convert them into three 20 x 12 stalls.  All 13 custom stalls have beautiful tongue-and-groove stall fronts, large doors, and metal hardware.  Attached to this barn is a 10 x 70 outside covered loafing area with Southern exposure.  Other amenities of the barn include 200 amp electric service, individual stall lights on a timer system, all wiring in conduit, and an Elk architectural shingle roof installed in 2002.

            A 54 x 72 Morton pole barn is attached to the main barn.  The main door is 15 feet high.  It also has an 18 x 36 insulated shop/office/tack or storage room with windows and concrete floor. This building can be used for hay and bedding storage, exercise area, additional portable or permanent stalls, wash area or machine storage.   

            Twelve acres of this 20.9 acre property are fenced.  An approximately 2 acre paddock features a block run-in shed with Southern exposure.  There are spectacular must see long range views of the Mahoning Valley and the Blue Mountain from either residence.  This well-planned, efficient facility has a great location with easy access to State Rte. 309, I-81, I-78, and the Pennsylvania Turnpike. It is located just 35 minutes northwest of the Allentown area. This versatile property would be an excellent candidate for a 4-H family, breeding or training facility, racehorses, or for any type of livestock activity - horses, beef cattle, sheep, llamas or goats.  The excellent buildings can also serve many other uses. It is an exceptional farm in superb condition and a great value with all of its extensive amenities.
