Welcome to the “Meetch House!” Built in 1801, this beautifully crafted stone farmhouse is classy country living at its best, with many major updates and renovations in the past year, yet still overflowing with rich history (once the site of a stone and clover mill, a tollhouse, and an inn!). Offering 3/4 Bedrooms, 1.5 baths, totaling 3,179 square feet, situated on 4.28 acres in Halifax, PA, the Meetch House is surrounded by farms and hills, just 25 minutes from downtown Harrisburg. The property is approximately half cleared lawn, and half wooded. Chestnut, maple, cherry, white pine, hemlock, cedar, spruce, and tamarack trees can be found on the property, along with several well-established grapevines that produce enough crop to make several gallons of wine each year, blueberry bushes, and apple and pear trees. The home showcases many unique and original features such as wide-plank floors (many recently refinished!), multiple fireplaces (including the original “oven” fireplace in the summer kitchen), stunning stonework, and much more of that old beauty that highlights the early 19th century character, while many recent renovations and updates make the home functional for the family in 2020. A “secret room” above the laundry/summer kitchen is accessible by a unique hidden staircase, and while currently unfinished, could be an additional bedroom in the future. A full walkup attic provides plenty of storage, or future additional living space. The wraparound driveway provides two means to enter/exit the property, and there is plenty of covered and uncovered parking.
