A cluster of historic cottages for sale in Pennsylvania



This 2 acre compound in eastern Pennsylvania caught my eye last week. It features three historic cottages from the 1920’s and teens. (One historic cottage is great… but three are phenomenal!)

Set in the lush woodlands near a river, these cottages are currently on the market for the 3-for-1 price of $549,000.

One of them is technically an old cabin and each one has a separate well and septic system. There is also a “natural koi pond on the property with artesian well.”

Let’s have a look:

Sweet right?

This is the living room of cottage #1 … decorated with period antiques:

Here is the cottage kitchen:

And this is the peaceful green bedroom (look at that bed!)…

Moving on to cottage #2…

Is it just me or is this one reminiscent of cabins at summer camp?

Or, Baby’s cabin in the movie Dirty Dancing?

Look at that gorgeous stone fireplace!

There is a lot of wood paneling to be sure, but I think it is appropriate for a rustic cottage.

And back inside, this is cottage #2’s kitchen:

And the teal green dining room…

Lovely stained glass window!

Are you ready for cottage #3?

This is the “cabin” of the three – I guess because it has log siding, and is a tad more rustic than the first two.

I love it just the same.

Although… those “horn-chairs” are not my taste. Maybe they are tusks? I can’t tell.

Here is the very tiny kitchenette in cabin #3:

An equally cozy bedroom:

This property would be an excellent vacation rental… or a compound for the family that likes to have their own separate spaces!
