Property Description

Pennsylvania Germanic Farmhouse Circa 1806. Built by Emanuel Herr, the great-grandson of Hans Herr, who was an important figure in Pennsylvania history. Descendants of the Herr family continually owned the property until 1943. The house was owned by only two other families before being purchased by the current owners in 1997. A comprehensive History of 27 Bentley Lane was researched and prepared in 2005 by historian John Bennawit and can be found in the documents tab. This two-and-a-half story dwelling is built in the Georgian style and constructed with local fieldstone and wood clapboard siding. The home is situated on a picturesque double lot surrounded by mature trees and professional landscaping. There is an underground Spring, that originates on the property, and is used for irrigation and to fill the swimming pool. Included on the property is a large Barn, a 2 bay "Horse Barn" and an in-ground pool with gazebo and waterfall. The 1 ½ story barn was refurbished and painted in 2020, has 2 parking Bays and a loft. The 2-Bay horse barn was built and placed on the property in 2015. It is outfitted with electric service and plumbing for running water and is used for and is currently used for gardening supplies and lawn-care equipment. The stunning in-ground pool features a soothing waterfall, stamped concrete decking, a retractable awning, a pool house and screened Gazebo. The spacious Gazebo has ample seating, a large round table that converts to a firepit, and electric service, making this an ideal space for entertaining. The house has been meticulously and lovingly maintained with many of the original features preserved. Original wide plank floors are featured throughout the home, as well as exposed wood ceiling beams dating back to the 1800's. Several additions and many recent upgrades were made to the home over the years, seamlessly blending its splendid history with modern comfort.
