Take a step back in time as you approach this historic farm house built in 1795. Located in the charming boro of Parkesburg, this diamond in the rough was the first public school house for an established, small town community that predates the Civil War. The main entrance features an antechamber and front to back hallway. The foyer walls are adorned with old newspaper clippings from the Phoenixville Gazette, circa 1860, featuring an advertisement for Abraham Lincoln for President, along with vintage area maps that were discovered in the attic. The entrance is flanked by the great room to the left, featuring lots of natural light and a wood burning stove with slate hearth that lends to the ambiance and character of this room. The renovated and spacious kitchen is to the right, with separate eating area, hardwood floors and ample island seating ,while the deep window sills just beckon for a loaf of freshly baked bread. The upper level has 2 bedrooms, and a full bath. The 2nd bedroom is currently used as a second floor laundry with original, wide-plank hardwood flooring. The finished attic presently is used as home office, but the possibilites are endless. A renovation in 2009 added a separate apartment within the residence, with 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, separate parking area and private entrance for a rental income of over $19,000 a year. This property is situated on 2.4 acres, overlooking a grassy hillside that fronts Main St. and panaramic vistas. Mature landscaping and spacious gardens make this a haven for gardeners. Bring your vision and love of unique homes to purchase your own piece of history.
