Lovely Georgian Colonial. Built-in 1750 this magnificent stone home is located on over 5 acres in the pleasant country setting of Bernville in Berks County. It is rare to find a historical home that has been remarkably maintained and thoughtfully updated. Retaining many of its desirable original features the home offers 9 ft ceilings, classic crown moldings and wainscoting, beam ceilings, wide plank hardwood and pine flooring, two brick wood burning fireplaces, and deep window sills. The center hall graciously welcomes you to the home and leads to a large open living room to entertain guests or for relaxation. Now add an incredible 5-star kitchen with gleaming built-in stainless-steel appliances including double ovens, built in dishwasher, granite counter tops and a butcher block workstation. A large eat-in area with a fireplace makes the kitchen an inviting space to gather for meals. The huge formal dining room has a gorgeous center brick fireplace and impressive carved mantle. Laundry will not be a chore in the first-floor laundry brightened with a wall of windows overlooking the inground pool. A generous master suite has a fabulous 21st-century en-suite with a contemporary double vanity. There are three more bedrooms on the second level and two more on the third level. Plus, there are another two completely updated full bathrooms. Adjoining the main home is a renovated smokehouse that is the perfect accompaniment for pool parties with a full bar and wood burning stove. For multi-generational living or an overnight guest, there is a full apartment over the three-car garage! All of this on professionally landscaped land with beautiful level lawns that are partially fenced. This home is a must see!
