We are proud to offer The Grist Mill & Manor House at Saylor Farm, to the real estate market! This is your opportunity to own a very special and prominent piece of Berks County History. The Grist Mill at Barnhardt's Dam, in Muhlenberg Township, can be found in the Historic Registry, and pre-dates the the construction of the adjacent brick manor house, Circa 1850, and was constructed flawlessly, in two different eras. This home boasts 6 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, with 11' ceilings in the main floor formal living room and solarium, and 9' ceilings in the huge formal dining room, with working wood burning fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom, and a working pellet stove insert in the dining room fireplace. The original servants quarters can be private to the rest of the home, with a recently renovated full bath and second stair case down to the spacious country kitchen, with farm style sink and butlers pantry. The main foyer is massive, measuring 32'X8' and 11' high ceilings, with turned main staircase, with wainscoting and a powder room beneath the stair case. There is a private owner's bathroom, and a 3rd family bath on the second floor, serving the remaining bedrooms. One half of the huge attic has been converting into a heated bedroom space, and there is more attic that could be converted if need be. The 3 story, limestone grist mill is in wonderful condition. An owner could certainly use the upper two floors as an art or music studio, home office, or space for a home based business. There was water service to the mill at one time, served by the spring that came off the mountain in the rear, and sewer is currently limited to a concrete holding tank (not being used) and must be connected to nearby public sewer, in order to become fully functional. All of the original milling wheels and mill mechanisms are being stored in the attic area of the mill, and can be seen with plenty of notice. This home would be perfect for a large family or someone with historic or renovation interest. The rear of the property overlooks the township lake and park, and rests at the outlet spillway that used to power the grist mill. Taxes are super low for such an extensive and magnificent property, and the home is just minutes from all major conveniences, and routes leading to Reading, The Lehigh Valley, or beyond.
