$400,000 1494 GREEN HILLS ROAD, BIRDSBORO, PA 19508
**Open House is Canceled for Sunday 2/14.** Take a step back in time. This 1700s stone home has been lovingly restored to its original historic charm while incorporating many modern amenities and upgrades. Built with stone from the nearby quarry, it sits among multiple forges in the quiet hills of Berks County. Featuring a rare central chimney and box winder staircase indicative of the "Hall-Parlor" home-style of English and Welsh Quaker settlers, the 3-story home boasts 3 large bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and over 3000 square feet of wood, slate, and stone. Upon entering the home, on your left, you will be immediately drawn to the "Hearth Room" with its magnificent stone walk-in fireplace, slate floors, and original exposed wooden beams. On your right is the updated modern eat-in kitchen and the other side of the stone fireplace. Beyond the kitchen is a pantry, storage closet, and laundry room. Venture up the box winder staircase and into the "Parlor Room." This room has large windows that allow natural sunlight to brighten the home throughout the day and 9+ foot ceilings that make the room feel even grander. The Parlor showcases a brick fireplace with a wooden mantel and sits next to the staircase to the third floor. On the left of the fireplace is the hallway to the Owner’s Bedchamber, which consists of a bedroom, a full bathroom with a tiled spa shower and stone vessel sink, and an art gallery/library and sitting area. A door to the outside yard provides access to the garden. The third level of the home has 2 large bedrooms with skylights, big closets, and a full tub shower bathroom. Outside, next to the garden, stands a stone and timber-framed pavilion with a corner fire pit and an open patio with views of the creek. In the backyard, 2 sets of stairs lead up to large clearings surrounded by trees that provide natural privacy and an ideal view that complements the unique beauty and appeal of this historic home. There is a carport with storage area to the right of the house. In the backyard is a 6x16 foot storage, ride-in shed. **See attached list of upgrades. This home is being featured in Haven, the lifestyle magazine, in March 2021.**
