Circa 1872 Historic Old Hotel For Sale Borders River on 5.7 Acres Pennsylvania. $549,000 Posted on December 29, 2022December 29, 2022 by susansboneyard Circa 1872 Historic Old Hotel For Sale Borders River on 5.7 Acres 89 Beckville Rd, Pottsville, PA 17901 $549,000 History Whether you have a large household, would like to own a bed and breakfast, maybe an air bnb, or a historic wedding venue, this might just be it. Your chance to own a piece of Schuylkill County History has arrived. Welcome to The Farmers Hotel as described in the Novel by John O’Hara. 21 rooms have been beautifully restored & are ready to bring history to life. If the home could talk, the random plank wood floors would certainly share stories of the weary farmers who came to rest. The original bar which served so many, remains in the living room & dares you to travel back to a simpler time. Throughout the renovations the walls shared their stories by providing historic finds such as original signed election documents from FDR’s Presidential campaign which remain with the home. Main Floor The generously sized wrap around porch begs you to kick off your dusty boots & enjoy a glass of refreshing lemonade. You will find an amazing juxtaposition of today’s amenities & the character of days gone by. Care was taken at every turn to keep this home true to it’s history. Even the hitching posts, once used to secure the horses (stamped from the Simon Derr Foundry formerly of Pottsville), and watering trough remain. Woodwork has been painstakingly restored both inside and out from top to bottom. The main floor boasts of a living room, dining room, family room, kitchen, bathroom, and storage room. Take a look at the property photos and you’ll see some of these rooms as they once were. (the bar, dual dining rooms, kitchen, and summer kitchen) Upstairs From the main floor, climb your choice of the front or rear steps to the second floor where you’ll find 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, laundry room, a sitting area, and what can be used as an office area. The rear steps will take you to a private sitting area and also leads to the laundry room. The beckoning staircase located near the entrance will lead you to the upper levels and all their glory. The large primary suite encompasses the entire back half of the home and once served as the living quarters for the hotel owners. On one side of the suite, you can exit to the second floor covered porch. On the other side, you’ll find a roomy en suite, complete with jacuzzi tub, and large walk in closet that leads to the laundry room. More Upstairs The second floor reveals more of what once was, as you’ll note built in closets in the office area and a beautiful exposed brick chimney in the second bedroom. Travel further into the past as you ascend to the third floor and find 6, yes 6 additional bedrooms, as well as another full bath, and access to the attic. Outside As if all of the above isn’t enough, consider the possibilities the property has to offer. With almost 6 acres the outside is just as alluring as the inside. The picturesque gazebo rests beneath the large maple tree ready to capture photographic memories of your special event. A sprawling deck leading to an above ground pool is yet another place to relax. Location The scenic Schuylkill River borders the property & with the addition of the new bridge and road work stays within it’s banks while offering a place to fish and sounds of flowing water. Worried about the road that borders the other side of the home? Plant some arborvitae’s for the ideal natural border to make a secluded hideaway close to everything. The large parking garage is currently open in the front but could easily be closed in allowing for a 4 car detached garage. More Whether you have read the novel, newspaper articles, or many historical writings about the property, nothing can compare to seeing it in person. A pre approval or proof of funds is required prior to a confirmed showing. Buyer’s & their agents may not take any additional photos or videos of the property. Schedule your tour, allow your imagination to travel into history, let your dreams guide you toward your future, then make your offer today!
