A beautiful, scenic farmstead completely renovated while keeping its Lancaster County charm. Original restored chestnut wood throughout the home, and the new addition seamlessly blends in, featuring huge Living/Dining and Recreation Rooms that look out on the property's soccer/riding field, woods, pastures and play areas. Perfectly located out in the country in Lancaster but yet conveniently located within 8 min of Rt 30, 283, 222 and Amtrak train station on Harrisburg/ Philadelphia route. Conveniently located in West Hempfield Township stands this eye catching updated farmhouse built-in 1874 that features 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and over 4000 sq ft that has been renovated from top to bottom but still keeps its country charm. Set on 4.6 acres of pure tranquility, this property features a 2-story farm house, a 2-story barn with 5 horse stalls, and an inside wash stall and a large garage area. The backyard features an extensive flat play area including soccer field/riding area and playhouse. The property also includes multiple fenced-in pastures, and it backs up to beautiful Grubb Lake. The farmstead has been extensively renovated inside and out with new Pella and Anderson Windows, new flooring, eco-friendly and energy efficient utilities including central AC unit and dual heating systems (heat pump and oil), to minimize utility costs. A wrap-around covered front porch has entries to the kitchen or mudroom. The mudroom has bench seating with ample storage, multiple racks for hanging coats as well as a half bath for conveniently washing up. The interior boasts an open floor plan, large windows that let in lots of natural light, and pocket doors. As you enter you will feel an immediate sense of coziness and warmth. The welcoming great room boasts lots of open space, a corner stone gas fireplace, 10.5' ceilings, and large windows that overlook the scenic pastures and backyard. With the amazing opportunity for convenient 1st floor living, it hosts an oversized bedroom and full owner's bath which contains dual vanities, an oversized walk-in shower, and an antique clawfoot tub. The kitchen is stunning with an oversized center island featuring a built-in Jenn-Air oven with grill, convection oven, and electric cooktop. Cooking is a breeze with plenty of counter and cabinet storage space. Also on the main level is a craft room, pantry and full laundry area. The upper level hosts 3 bedrooms, a full bath, and a relaxing porch that overlooks the front of the property. A door in the bath leads to the walk-in attic which allows for easy access to ample storage. The finished lower level is over 1,500 sq ft with a full wall of oversize windows overlooking the backyard. This wide open space contains a recreation area with pool and air hockey tables, entertainment center, fitness area, extensive hobby area and separate workshop/tool room with an outside entrance. The exterior is simply outstanding with a multi-tier deck, pergola, and a Coleman 8-person hot tub with peaceful pasture views. The property features easy-care perennial flower gardens, a mature fruit and vegetable garden, and two paved 4-car driveway areas including a basketball court. For the horse or livestock enthusiast, the 2-story 30' x 70' barn comes equipped with 5 horse stalls, inside wash stall, a tack room, workshop, and a garage area with large electric door. The hayloft can hold up to 2 tons of small hay bales, and has significant additional storage. There is ample parking as well for about 8 cars. There are 3 separate horse pastures to facilitate rotation. These include automatic Nelson waterers, electric fences, water faucets and lights. A large lean-to includes a spate hay storage stall, and can be set to keep each horse separate or facilitate rotation. The property line backs to Grubb Lake Park, a 55 acre park featuring a one-mile walking trail around a beautiful, serene lake and children's playground. This is truly a unique property.
