About Pennsylvania


Philadelphia is known for its Revolutionary War-era historical sites like Valley Forge, its large cities like Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, its farming regions, some occupied by the Amish, and a once-strong industrial history.

With equally large swaths of cities and towns as fields and mountains, Pennsylvania is a rich and varied state, as well as a worthy travel destination. Pennsylvania is bordered by the states of New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, and Ohio.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is a geographically diverse state with a Great Lake on one shore and a major seaport on the other. The climate of Pennsylvania is pleasant, with cold, often snowy winters, mild to hot, humid summers, gorgeous green spring times, and most notably, spectacular displays of colorful autumn foliage.

Magnificent waterfront updated 1800's Farmhouse along the Yellow Breeches Creek

Mechanicsburg, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania

With the hectic pace of today, wouldn’t you love to know that you can come home to peace & tranquility? Well, you can here! Whether this is your private residence or a “get away from it all additional home”, relaxing is just the start of stress relief! Fishing? This updated 7 acre, 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home resides along the Yellow Breeches Creek which is one of the famous limestone trout streams of the Cumberland Valley in south-central Pennsylvania. Rafting & Kayaking? With the creek in your own back yard, you can raft, kayak and tube! Horses? With the small horse barn/garage that is on the property your horses have a home of their own too! Skiing? Roundtop Mountain Top Resort is about 20 minutes away! Puttering in the yard? Absolutely! With the professionally landscaped yard designed to capture nature at its best, you can putter away! Relaxing & Entertaining? You bet! From the inside out, this home has options. Movie night in the current “living room” was used as the Theater room with light blocking curtains and an area on the ceiling for the projector - lights, camera and action! Entertaining is easy with the open floor plan and ease of access to the kitchen and Butler pantry. Enjoy the fireplace in the family room on a winter’s night, coffee in the morning in the Breakfast area or on one of the many areas of the deck. With 2 masters – one on the first floor and the second floor, you can choose which room you want to make your own. The first-floor master is a private suite that was carefully planned with entrances from both the interior of the home as well as two separate entrances from the outside. The hot tub is right outside for a quick dip to soak away and relax and then cozy up to a fire in your own master bedroom fire place. Who else can boast that they have a pool where a creek runs under and around it? You can!! This pool has been engineered and built where an old mill once stood! There are still some of the mechanisms of the old sluice gate that can still be seen, along with some of the bridgework that still exists. The pool is great for entertaining with its own pool house and wet bar. The water line to the wet bar has been capped and the new owner would be responsible for re-installing. There is so much more that you will need to come and explore! Zip line, tree house, storage, horse barn with large garage, campfires, the list goes on and on. The property line extends to the soil at the midpoint under the creek.
