The country… rich, relaxed,
fresh, and unhurried… where forested hills, soft green
pastures and proud, fertile farmlands artfully combine to
paint portraits of ever changing pageantry of nature.
Journey into this timeless haven and find sanctuary in its
delights. This is just a brief description of this beautiful
163 acre Albany Township farm. It is a phenomenal piece of
ground with a combination of tillable fields interspersed
with wood lots abounding with unparalled natural beauty
along with truly amazing views. Located in a unique valley
in Albany Township, Berks County, the valley is surrounded
on 3 sides by the Great Bend of the Kittatinny Ridge of the
Blue Mountain with fantastic views of The Pinnacle and
world-famous Hawk Mountain.
The long private drive leads
to a sequestered 4 bedroom 19th century farmhouse just
waiting for a restoration. The Pennsylvania German bank barn
was completely rebuilt on its 19th century stone foundation
in 1915 by skilled workmen who employed old world barn
construction techniques including mortise and tendon joints
with wood dowels. The lower level of the barn could provide
box stalls for horses while the upper level serves as hay
The farm is an ideal country retreat
abounding with all types of game including trophy white tail
deer, wild turkey, ruffed grouse, and small game. It is
sheer joy to be able to walk for an hour or two around this
farm through woods and meadows while enjoying the
breathtaking vistas and still be at home, on your own land,
your own property, alone in the total quiet and peace of
nature. Build the estate house of your dreams in the middle
of your totally private 163 acres. The farm is ideal for
horses, cattle, or a private hunting preserve with some of
the prettiest landscapes in Pennsylvania. The land offers
endless enjoyment for the farmer, equestrian, hunter or
nature enthusiast. Enjoy recreational activities such as
cross-country skiing, snow mobiling, and mountain biking. On
a warm summer evening, it is an unparalled treat to spot a
red fox drinking from the pond or look overhead at the
abundance of wonderful migratory birds and raptors. One can
not resist the peaceful charm and calmness emanating from
this land. This is truly Pennsylvania at its finest.
The farm is located just west of the quaint, picturesque
village of Kempton. To the west of the farm, you can see the
world-famous Hawk Mountain Bird Sanctuary and to the south
west, the highly acclaimed Pinnacle. The Pinnacle has the
reputation of having the most beautiful views on the entire
Pennsylvania stretch of the Appalachian Trail. Hawk Mountain
is the world’s first refuge for birds of prey and has over 8
miles of walking and hiking trails for observation of the
large numbers of hawks, eagles, and falcons as they migrate
past the lookouts. The sanctuary has over 2,600 acres and an
additional 13,000 acres of private and public land. It is
one of the largest protected tracts of contiguous forest in
Southeastern Pennsylvania. The Appalachian Trail is the
nation’s longest marked footpath consisting of 2,179 miles,
passing through 14 states, and 8 national forests.
The farm is a one of a kind property and provides the
perfect refuge from the outside world, yet close to I-78,
the Pennsylvania Turnpike, and an easy commute to New York
City and Philadelphia.
