The Old Homestead built by the Apple Family in 1808, consists of the stone house, a fabulous Circa 1859 barn, spring house that once had a water wheel, an ice house and wagon shed. The farmhouse is in need of a full renovation but the potential is there!! Made mostly of stone with incredibly high ceilings for the time dictate that this was more of a manor home. The second floor also has high ceilings and the walk up attic is floored with gorgeous wide wood floors which could make a fabulous guest suite or whatever your imagination dreams of! The Pennsylvania Dutch Barn, also known as "forebay and bank" barn, is a true treasure. It's possible that the original barn was also built in 1808 but was mostly destroyed by fire. So, in 1859, the new barn that exists today was constructed. The dates written on the barn wood take it back to 1859. The current owner determined the approximate age of the barn due to it being part stone and partly wood. In the 1840s and 50s, sawmills became plentiful so lumber was used more than stone thus the added knowledge of the age of the FOUR story high barn! Along with its HEX signs, the barn is rich with history and is awaiting its next steward. There are also other potential uses but you'd have to check with zoning.... This property is a true treasure to restore! (Please note: the barn is in Northampton County and the Farm house is in Lehigh County. The approximately 50 acres BEHIND this 3 plus acre parcel has been sold off)
