Description

There is Historic and then there is HISTORIC! Own a piece of Local History! Come and See the Gloninger Estate, also know as Gloninger Manor. This 3.5 story Swiss-German style Stone Beauty was built in 1785 with double brick chimneys on either side of the house. Beautiful Original Hardwood Flooring throughout. Stone foundation walls are 35" thick. 3 top floors have 24" thick stone walls. This house boasts 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, 4 fireplaces, Central Air and an Inground pool, all on 4.5 acres of wooded park like property, bordered on the southeast corner by the Snitz Creek. Plenty of room for a small gentleman's farm with a huge garden.The Inside of this home was completely redone in 1978 by a previous owner. New walls, electric, plumbing, windows, central air and insulation added. The beautiful original American Chestnut floors and all of the original stonework inside and out were preserved.Character abounds in this 4 story home. When you enter the front door you find yourself in the Keeping Room with the oversized wood burning fireplace and mantle reminiscent of the time. To the left is the ample sized Living room, with the same original wood flooring and deep windowsills. Walk on through to the beautiful Dining room with the 2nd fireplace on that floor. Next comes the kitchen with a large pantry cupboard and countertop seating for 5 or 6.The 2nd floor has a primary suite including a large bedroom with a fireplace, an office and a private bath with a beautiful tile shower. There is a 2nd bedroom and a spa-like bathroom on this floor as well.The 3rd floor has two more ample sized bedrooms both with stone accents and they share a half bath.The Lower Level is a walk-out basement that includes a large game room which could double as a second dining area for large groups, with a mini kitchen including a small arched wine storage area. In the next room is a very large family room with stone accents and full sized windows and an outside door that leads to the brick patio. There is also a 3rd full bath and a laundry room on this floor.The brick patio overlooks the pool area accessed by a magical meandering stone walkway.There is a stone smokehouse that now houses the mechanicals, and a Bank Barn that has a full Wood Shop on the 2nd level and has room for an oversized 2 car garage or animals in the lower level. There is also an entrance to what once was a natural limestone cave that ran about 200 feet under Oak Street that was used for food storage.This property has been listed in the National Historic Registry of Homes. Owners of National Historic Landmarks are entitled to a host of financial benefits when undertaking restoration work, not to mention significant bragging rights. John Gloninger, who built the home was a Colonel in the Revolutionary Militia and evidently knew George Washington, who as President, invited Gloninger to dine with him in March of 1791.The lower 1 acre is bordered on the southeast corner by the Snitz Creek and is in the Flood Plain. The other 3.5 acres including the home, the Bank Barn and the inground pool are not in the Flood Plain and have never flooded to the owners knowledge. They have lived there 24 years. See attached documents.Homes like this are far and few between! Make an appointment to see this Beauty today!
