A gorgeous restoration of a 4BR & 2.5BA stone home with no expense spared in Pennsylvania orchard country near Fairfield & Gettysburg, featuring beautiful wood floors & high ceilings, spacious kitchen with center island, a main level master suite and an enormous amount of character & charm. This extraordinary property has an attached 2 car garage, an additional over-sized detached 2 car garage, a vintage outbuilding set up as a workshop & the original stone spring house, as well as, mature landscaping and lush plantings...........The owners of this extraordinary home have lovingly preserved the historic detailing where possible and replicated other details where necessary, so the house has a period feel, but with the modern amenities that we have come to expect, like luxurious bathrooms, spacious bedrooms, gourmet kitchen, new plumbing, new electrical, zoned central air conditioning & heating, a large addition with over-sized garage & recreation room, an enormous amount of insulation, and so much more. The current stewards have spent their tenure bringing the James Linn House back to it~s original glorious state, while at the same time, ushering it into 21st century standards of living. They have invested far more money into this project than the offering price, but as a labor of love, they have saved this noble structure for the ages and the next steward can enjoy the benefits of the current owner~s passion for historic preservation. From the roomy front porch, one can view the massive stone wall these stewards constructed with thousands of large field stones laboriously stacked on top of each other, beginning well before the house and extending well past the house, edging the sleepy country road and defining the beautifully landscaped front yard...........With nearly 3 acres, this is a gardener~s paradise. Once a working farm with more expansive acreage, in a rural setting of farms and orchards, this property is ideal for someone with a passion for plants and gardening. There are over 100 White Pine, Douglas Fir & Spruce trees being groomed for harvest and multiple garden plots ready for the next steward~s personal touch and preferences...........Though it has not been a working farm in many years, 2 of the outbuildings have been retained and restored, a charming stone spring house and a produce packing building (now a workshop). The owners added a 28~ x 28~ pole building on a concrete slab with 2 garage-style doors and a high ceiling that is perfect for trucks, trailers, expansive storage or studio...........A dream 19th century stone home in immaculate condition with all the modern amenities, in a rural setting of farms & orchards, this is a home of rare and beautiful distinction, close to DC & Baltimore, yet a world away.
