Property description

The McDowell Farm is rich with productive soils and fertile green fields. The home is a classic 18th century brick farmhouse situated on 73.1 acres. The property has a tree-lined drive leading to the home, with a unique walkway made of large mill stones providing access to a screened-in porch.

The country kitchen has an adjoining office area, and the dining room features a brick hearth fireplace. The living room has original built-in cabinetry, and there is a mudroom with a washer and dryer for added convenience. There are a total of five bedrooms in the house, with the main floor bedroom suite having a full bath. The beautiful hardwood floors provide warmth and historic charm throughout the home.

In addition to the home, the property includes a large bank barn that was used for a family dairy operation, and in recent years for farm equipment and hay storage in its expansive upper loft. It retains its barn-beam structure, including a large concrete silo that is reminiscent of classic farm life. There is also an additional garage shed and large tractor shed for equipment storage or hobbies.

The farm is actively farmed and is under an agricultural easement with 45 tillable acres, 12 acres of pasture, and the remainder in woods. A small portion of the West Branch of the White Clay Creek runs along the edge of the property.

Conveniently located in the award-winning Avon Grove School District, the property is under Act 319 for very low taxes. The property has been respectfully maintained and enjoyed by the current family for over 55 years and is now ready for its next stewards to provide their updates and enjoy the farm and country life.
