THIRD TIME IS THE CHARM: (TWO BUYERS LOSS CAN BE YOUR GAIN). #Maddie's Challenge and #Only the hardy need look. Beautiful Tudor is back on the market-again! Settlement Notices were sent; HUD-1"s were approved; Title Binder Requirements were cleared and final readings for utilities were ordered. Scheduled settlement on February 15th at 10 AM was in the books. Then the bank pulled the plug after it was previously approved. Another prior Agreement of Sale was contingent on a Home Inspection. A young Buyer was overwhelmed with what he saw and opted out. Seller has reviewed that Home Inspection and has taken care of any critical items and had unknowns evaluated by professional contractors and addressed appropriate items, using their judgement, when necessary. The good news is that it is a really great home with lots to offer. This is POCONO style living in Mustang (Governor Mifflin schools) country.

You won't be bothered by neighbors or visitors due to private drive where egress is unknown (hidden from sight). Sellers will credit $500 to the Buyers for an oil based driveway sealer for an executed Agreement of Sale. It is recommended that the sealer should wait till after move-in.

Arguably the finest "country" house in the early days of our state, the Charming Forge Mansion (1784) features "Philadelphia" quality woodwork in every room. The early wing (1749) is nearly intact from the colonial days when "Baron" Stiegel of Manheim, the original iron master, found the setting "charming". It remains so with the surroundings along the Tulpehocken Creek protected by a local land trust. A museum quality restoration began in 1994, modern amenities were installed with remarkable care and sensitivity. This is a fine antique house for a modern lifestyle, w/designer kitchen, 7 bed chambers, 7 working fireplaces, 4 full baths, radiant heat, central air, stocked trout stream, etc. Outbuildings received the same careful attention: a carriage barn large enough for four cars, a privy housing a generator, a summer kitchen, bake oven and an ancillary stone dwelling. In the early 19th century, the Union Canal was built in front of the property. The towpath and canal bed remain along with the stone arch tunnel and a lock further downstream.
