Tucked away in rural Eastern Berks County Pennsylvania, is this precious farm that dates back to the 1790’s.

Old Hickory Farm has been owned and loved by the same artistic and conscientious couple for over 20 years. It is time for them to move on and sell this bucolic piece of paradise. So have a look at this amazingly humble spread…

The main stone farmhouse was built in 1840 but several of the out-buildings date to an earlier Revolutionary era homestead.

The idyllic property includes a large pond, a pool, a barn, a blacksmith shop, and a spring house.

Let’s take a peek inside the vintage main house – shall we?

You enter into this quaint mudroom:

There is tons of charm packed into the tiny kitchen:

Re-purposed antique flooring, doors, panels and hardware in combination with contemporary artists’ metal work and decorative panels create a perfect blend of old and new with both humor and taste.

Much of the house has been renovated but it retains many original features such as the hand-hewn beams and exposed stone walls.

I adore how the house has many traditional touches but they are nicely balanced with fun, eclectic pieces.

My favorite room in the entire house is the master bedroom suite:

Hidden in that closet structure in the center of the room is a shower!

In total, the house has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.

Outside, there is a refurbished barn that was once used as a tasting room for a winery.
