Property Sub TypeDetached
Showings Start Friday, May 19th................Welcome to 1606 S. Keim Street! A beautiful 3 story stone farm house built in 1850 that sits upon 10+ acres in East Coventry Township. Complete with 7 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a modern kitchen, and the addition of an amazing great room with a wraparound porch!
Imagine this, from the side porch you enter the great room, and great it is! The great room is sheathed and trimmed in old barn wood that was salvaged from the framing and exterior of an extension of the German-style barn previously on the property. Grand in size and with scenic views via the walls of windows, skylights and wood beamed ceilings. Look carefully and you can see Roman numerals carved into some of the collar ties! A wood burning stove warms this room in the winter. And if it's snowing, you'll think you're inside of a snow globe! The kitchen has been modernized with granite counters, tiled backsplash, recessed lighting, new flooring, and the original birch cabinets have been preserved. A window with a deep sill overlooks the side yard. These windows are throughout the home. Carry on into the dining room that features beautiful original wood flooring of different widths! These too are throughout the home. Adjacent is the living room, and at its center is a stone fireplace with a wood burning insert, bull-nosed corner walls and the front door has the original 1800's sliding lock. Completing this level is a full bath off the great room with outside access to the wraparound porch. Great for cleaning up after gardening or a dip in the pond.
Bright sunlight beams through the leaded transom window as you take the turned staircase to the 2nd level. Once at the wide landing, there are 3 generously sized bedrooms with beautiful flooring and windows with interior louvered shutters. The main bedroom has a sitting area and double closets with organizers. Completing this level is the hall bath with a relaxing jetted soaking tub and a separate walk-in shower.
Climb the next turned staircase to the 3rd level and you will find 4 additional bedrooms, one which is currently used as an office, and a modern hall bath with a shower/tub combination. Visions of a bed and breakfast!
The grounds are a dream! Some are partially fenced for play and recreation. Grow your own veggies in the gardens. Relax on the dock of the 2-acre man-made pond. Boat, fish or take a swim in it! Walk the trail around the pond to enjoy all nature has to offer. The 2-story barn was originally used as a dairy barn; however the lower level has been converted with 9 box stalls to accommodate horses and other types of livestock. The upper level of the barn is a great place to store hay & straw for horses or with a little love, the possibilities are endless. Additionally, on the property there are 2 spring houses, a one-car garage near the house and a large two-car garage attached to the barn. There is so much history, love, and detail to this property, it must be seen to truly be appreciated.
