PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTIONS AGAIN AS WE HAVE ADDED INFO AND CORRECTED SOME OF THE WORDAGE TO BETTER DESCRIBE WHAT AND HOW WE ARE OFFERING THIS PROPERTY ! UPDATED ON 8/23/18


This dwelling has not been lived in for last 18 months;  it is in need of cleanup, maintenance, and some repairs.  Also needs "aired out" due to pets in house by previous tenant.  Could be a live-in fixer/upper, while renovations are being done. Certainly a low cost starter property for someone with the right skill set. It is within walking distance (approx 3 blocks) of Harveys Lake. The setting provides a nice view of the lake and is bordered on two sides by wooded terrain.

This property's consist of three parcels known on the tax rolls as being # 74-D6S1-004-016-000,  # 74-D6S1-004-014-000 and # 74-D6S1-004-015-000. Each lot is approximately the same size and they total 15,850 sq feet combined.  The lot # 74-D6S1-004-016-000 is the cabin lot measures 40' X 120'  and is accessed from Second Street. The other two lots are to be accessed from Third Street, they measure 45' X 122'  and are separated from the cabin property by Third St. which is on the plot plan but does not appear to have ever been graded or improved.  On the lot ending in 016 is a frame structured summer home with approx 875 sq foot living space including kitchen, living room, two bedrooms and bath. There is also an attached and enclosed 200 sq foot porch, and an unfinished room on the second floor with outside access by stairway at the rear of the house. In addition there is also a macadam driveway to an overhead garage door used to access what was once a garage and is now used for a laundry and storage area under the dwelling. This house has been most recently used as a primary residence for a college student in lieu of the dorm at Misericordia University.

Originally a smaller cabin but has been expanded. Width of the structure is now 35' and it sets on a 40' wide lot. The lawn pictured along the N-Westside of the structure is NOT PART of the real estate we are selling; it is in fact part of  a larger bordering property owned by the Mclaughlin family. 

With a little TLC and work this property would make a home or rental property! Would be a great little cabin or summer home, and with some investment of time and money could be made into a full time residence. The two additional lots #014 and #015 combined (reverse subdivision required) would meet the setback and minimum size requirements now needed for construction of a new home.  PLEASE CONTACT THE TOWNS ZONING OFFICER FOR DETAILS AND TO BE SURE THAT THE PROPERTY CAN BE USED FOR YOUR NEEDS.

Has a Deeded and shared well for water supply and is connected to city sewer. The house sets on a .125 acre lot (40' X 120') accessed from what was known as Second Street and the other two lots are located on the north or opposite side of what is designated as Third Street. Third Street is the rear border for the cabin lot and is an undeveloped roadway at this point which separates the two larger lots from the cabin lot. The two unimproved lots are uphill and behind the dwelling and those 2 lots share a 122.5' border and are each of similar (45' X 122') size. Total of the three lots is to be approx .36 acre.

WE WILL BE OFFERING THE TWO BARE LOTS ON THIRD STREET WHICH ARE ON ONE DEED AS ONE PROPERTY.  SEPARATELY FROM AND THEN POSSIBLY IN COMBINATION WITH THE CABIN PROPERTY.

Harveys Lake is the largest natural lake by volume in the state of Pa. and the area around the lake is scenic, easy to get to and yet a quiet family oriented resort area. Deer, Bear and other wildlife seen in the back yard frequently. This property is within easy driving distance of Ricketts Glenn State Park, town of Eagles Mere and Misericordia University in Dallas, Pa.
