Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

Step back in time - more than 250 years or more - to the farm that is the namesake of Hunter Forge Road in Hereford Township, Berks County. This 32 Acre Horse Farm will impress even a discerning equestrian. Traveling up the paved driveway, flanked by apple trees, you're quick to notice the prominent and well-maintained stone bank barn. Its 6,400 sq ft divided into two levels has a lower level stable area that can accommodate up to 12 stalls with a horse-friendly earth floor. The upper level - with newer wood flooring replaced iin the last 2 years, replacement windows, newer siding, gutters, downspouts and re-pointed stonework - has hosted weddings with up to 125 in attendance. There is convenient direct roadway access with adjacent field parking for guests, too. The land has fenced Horse Pastures, open Hay Fields, wooded riding trails and two Streams. A Training Pen is near the barn and there's a Riding Arena located farther down the field. The Stone/Stucco Farm House demonstrates the substantial construction techniques employed during the 18th Century. There are 7 Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths (one on each floor), and laminated replacement windows throughout. The home is heated with multiple fuel sources. A wood and coal stove in the basement is enough, but it can be supplemented with an oil-fired furnace as well. Two 275-gallon oil tanks ensure one fill-up is all that's needed each summer (when the price is lowest). Pumpkin Pine Flooring is present throughout the home. Its a center-hall design with deep window sills that surround the replacement windows. The rounded plaster walls extend up to 9-feet on each floor. An over-sized living room is outfitted with a wood stove in the first floor fireplace. The first floor full bathroom includes a claw foot tub and shower. In the kitchen, you can prepare meals on the center island electric cooktop that has is down-draft vented. If you're baking, the stainless double wall oven will be an asset. A stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher are also modern conveniences. Adjacent to the kitchen is a very large dining room that has been recently painted. Up the stairs to the generously-sized master bedroom and you'll find the second fireplace hidden behind a wooden surround. Across this room is an entire wall of closets. There are two more bedrooms on this level as well as a tiled full bathroom. This bathroom has a custom double sink vanity and a high-tech multi-function shower enclosure. The tile flooring is highlighted with an intricate inlay. Up to the 3rd floor and you'll find another four bedrooms and the third full bathroom with a soaking tub and shower. One bedroom has a wall of closets that reuse the old barn flooring reclaimed when that was recently replaced. There are multiple out-buildings, including a Summer Kitchen (with a new roof) that serves as a separate self-contained residence - just right for an Au Pair or In-Law arrangement. The 2 car garage can be configured for another vehicle if needed and offers additional storage, too. A pump house is near-by and there's another building used as a pool house for the above-ground salt water pool. A separate Recreational Building is across Hunter Forge Road. A full-feature Bar, Music Stage and room for the Pool Table is an updated use for the building once used by Charles H. Hunter, the last blacksmith in Hereford Township. The Historical Forge is still in place. The property was once the residence of David G. Siesholtz (1836-1918) and his wife, Sarah.
