About Pennsylvania

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.

Nestled in the rolling hills of beautiful Central PA is a 50 - acre farm Sanctuary

Lewisberry, York County, Pennsylvania


Nestled in the rolling hills of beautiful Central Pennsylvania is a 50-acre farm sanctuary. Here is a magical property 75 minutes from Baltimore, two hours from Washington and Philadelphia, and three from New York. The three-story 1812 York stone Farmhouse maintains many original elements such as thick stone walls, wide wooden floorboards, a walk-in kitchen fireplace and exposed beams. The stunning two story addition, designed and built by the Norwegian architect owner and his son in 1994, is Pennsylvania Dutch post and beam construction with soaring ceilings, skylights, and large windows overlooking a meadow, pond and extensive patio. The house, barn and four additional outbuildings, mostly of stone, are secluded by lush trees, and enhanced by stone walls and a serene, professionally landscaped garden wrapping around the addition. There are stalls in the barn and an area that could be turned into a horse pasture. Beyond are open farmable fields and, at the top of a gentle hill, several acres of forest. Both the original house and the addition have large, light-filled living rooms (one with a wood-burning fireplace), and there are three full bathrooms, one with a jacuzzi, another with a sauna. Five other rooms can serve as bedrooms, including one designed to be a meditation room. A separate front entrance to the addition makes it a perfect guest or in-law annex.

It's 20 minutes to the capital, Harrisburg, and to the town of York. Gettysburg and Amish Lancaster County are less than an hour away. Come take a look at this gem of a farm and you're likely to agree that it doesn't get much better than this.
