Bed, Breakfast, and Beyond
This four bedroom, five bathroom home is one of the most versatile around! Listed by Bob Sooy of Action Real Estate for $275,000 this structure is fully furnished on one acre of property and is ready to have another family to love it.
Zoned as residential and/or commercial this home is located just outside of Palmerton in the tiny village of Little Gap, this home is only a short jaunt to historical Jim Thorpe and Penn’s Peak concert venue that’s sure to put rhythm in any blues you may have. Blue Mountain Ski Resort is only about one mile away, along with everything they have to offer year round! Whether you decide to cash in and use the home as a bed and breakfast or keep all 2,400 square feet of space for yourself, this 1825 beauty has all the modern flairs to make this your new home sweet home.
Although this home already has a 200 plus year history, the foundation has been reinforced along with the creek side wall in the backyard. There’s no reason you, your family and future generations can’t continue to make history in it for another 200 years either continuing as a bed and breakfast or family home. It also has 200 amp wiring and is heated by natural gas.
As if that is not enticing enough you haven’t even entered the front door. You can either park across the road in your own lot, or in the oversized one-stall garage. No matter where you decide to park you will instantly fall in love with its front, side and back porches that have quintessential country charm that continues throughout the interior.
Upon entering through the front door, you’re greeted by a familiar smell that mimics that of a Sunday morning at grandma’s house, a fully operational potbelly stove and the 29×17 formal living room. A half bath is located just off of the living room, and continuing past that is the 16×12 kitchen that has enough space to harbor a table, chairs, dishwasher, and still has room to cook! Continuing on is an oversized16x9 pantry that has a door leading out to the quiet, quaint and classically decorated back porch that has a creek side view. Past the kitchen is the 27×15 formal dining room with plush cranberry colored carpeting and plenty of windows.
Heading upstairs and to the right is the 13×10 Beau Monde bedroom that has a cheery color scheme and brightly decorated 15×8 full private bathroom. Straight ahead of the stairs is the “Country Quilt” bedroom that has accoutrements that embody its namesake. A rocking chair along with other knickknacks make this room cozy without being overdone. A full private bath is also just off of this bedroom. Saving the best room on this level for last is the 16×14 Roth Suite. This room has a cedar wardrobe (minus a lion and a witch) , windows that overlook the creek and a covered bridge in the near distance and a private bathroom is nearby. Oh, and there’s a Jacuzzi in the corner of the bedroom that is perfect for a romantic rendezvous or relaxing after a hectic workday. What more could you possibly want or need?
Headed to the top level of the home is the Southwest Room that is perfect for the bed and breakfast owner or any other occupant due to its space and seclusion. The 20×14 room has a lovely side nook that could serve as a library or additional lounging space. Naturally there is a private full bathroom on this level, and of course is immaculately decorated. This iconic home has been a fixture in Little Gap for centuries and needs a loving family to keep it that way!
