Superb mainly level & open building site of 9 acres with a charming large bank barn, 4 outbuildings, 40x20 in-ground pool & basketball court. Loafing area for horses or other livestock attached to barn and spacious stall. Fantastic amenities already in place, waiting for dream home & utility installation.
The land is predominantly level & then gently slopes toward its southern boundary where it drops down along the contours of Indian Creek which is stocked with trout yearly.
8.4 miles west of Lehigh Valley International Airport, 9.2 miles north of Route 22 at the Lehigh Valley Mall, and 8.3 miles south of Blue Mountain Ski Area and an Appalachian Trail trailhead, the property is centrally located with easy access to popular cultural and recreational destinations in the Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton area. The original bank barn was constructed in the mid-19th century with subsequent additions expanding the space. The lower level of the barn originally had four stalls. Thermal windows were installed and the space renovated for parties, family gatherings and a workout room; the upper level is used for storage. A two-story addition joined by a breezeway and catwalk is used as a sitting/party room. Other improvements on the property include a garage in the barn with a work bench as well as a standalone garage with work bench and storage, a large carriage shed with storage, pool changing/storage building and a corn crib. All buildings were repainted in 2009 in a deep, rich burgundy, and many have said it is now the nicest looking barn in Northampton County. Built in 1987 by Lehigh Valley Pools, the 40x20 in-ground pool is surrounded by a wood fence and chain link fence (to allow for the beautiful southern view). The pools liner was replaced in 2008. A large concrete pad provides a generous, sunny entertainment space next to the pool. A large macadam tennis court/basketball court just outside barn yard area is a good space for parking or play.
