Just Listed: Log House Near Schwenksville
Looking for a place where you can "rough it" without really roughing it? This lodge-like house should fill the bill.
Hunters, fishermen and visitors to many of America’s national parks often spend their idle hours in grand lodges built from logs. These places offer all the modern creature comforts yet have the air of the outdoors about them thanks to their construction.
Those who want to experience that feeling every day will want to pay this house for sale outside Schwenksville a visit.
It has the look and feel of those grand old lodges, yet it dates only to 1978.
The grandest of the grand-lodge spaces in this rambling log house is its open main-floor great room.
At one end of the room you will find a high vaulted ceiling with skylights and a full-height stone fireplace.
At the other, beneath a bedroom with balcony overlook, lies the house’s fully outfitted eat-in kitchen.
In between are two more dining areas, though the space they occupy could be reconfigured to accommodate whatever use you wanted. Front and side porches let you entertain your guests inside and out.
A master bedroom suite with a private deck in the main floor’s other wing allows for one-floor living. The second floor contains the other two bedrooms.
On its three-acre wooded lot you will also find a stone grill, a cabin and a huge 40-foot by 26-foot detached garage with three bays that can hold more than three cars.
This rustic retreat is also a short drive from Limerick, where you will find great outlet shopping. Collegeville, Graterford and Trappe are also close by, and Route 422 can take you to King of Prussia and other destinations.
