            This beautiful 3.6 acre country property is located in tranquil West Penn Township, Schuylkill County, just 35 minutes northwest of Allentown. A long, paved, circular driveway leads across your own private trout stream to the 3,600 square foot two story colonial nestled against a quiet backdrop of woodland. 

              The first floor of the home features a formal living room, which overlooks the stream, and has French doors leading into the formal dining room. The modern kitchen has a butcher block center island, 2 stove tops, a large double basin stainless steel sink, and ample cupboard space. Off of the kitchen is a breakfast eating area, which leads to the expansive family room featuring a floor to ceiling stone fireplace and custom wet bar.  Also included on the first floor are a powder room and a laundry room that leads to the side deck next to the pool.  The French doors from the breakfast area enable you to access the bright, large, heated sun room. This room is ideal for use as a home gym or game room, and it overlooks the pool.

            The second floor of the home includes the master bedroom with cedar-lined walk-in closet and master bath including a two person Whirlpool tub. There are three large additional bedrooms, some with double closets, and a second full bathroom with a double sink. There are also pull down stairs that lead to attic storage.

            The lower level of the home features a complete in-law apartment. The apartment includes a 10x10 kitchen, 21x13 living room, 14x11 bedroom, full bathroom, and a large foyer area. There is also a one car garage with workshop.

            Recent improvements to the home include an EFM hot water furnace with four zone heat, new windows, new central air conditioning, and a new 200 amp circuit breaker box. There is also a security system with motion detectors and hardwired smoke and fire alarms.

            The property features a luxurious 16x32 in ground swimming pool with patio area and pool house.  There is a new auxiliary outdoor wood boiler furnace that can heat the entire house and hot water system.  There is no need to burn fuel oil if you are using this furnace. Also included are a 16x24 mini-barn that is ideal for storage or as an ancillary garage and an 11x22 garden shed behind the house.

            Natural amenities include a high water quality trout stream, which contains native brook and brown trout that reproduce in the stream and can be seen in the many pond areas and by the waterfall. The four hundred eighty feet of the trout stream underwent a stream reclamation improvement project, contributing to its natural beauty. The property is mostly wooded with open areas along the trout stream, which are ideal for picnics and recreation, along with an abundance of white tailed deer and wildlife.  A truly rare, unique and one of a kind property! Price: $399,000

An adjacent 23 acre wooded parcel can also be purchased. Call for details.
