My place is close to restaurants and dining, nightlife, family-friendly activities. Walking distance to Reading Liederkranz and Stokesay Castle and close to Alvernia and Albright. It feels like country but is only 5 minutes to the city.
This is a liberal, gay household.
My house was built in 1799 by german immigrants. It was an angora sheep farm. The barn, root cellar, carriage house, and chicken coop still remain. There are some ruins of an old blacksmith shop near the woods. It is furnished very eclectically and has an interesting art collection. There is a movie room with a 110" screen and surround sound. There is wi-fi throughout the house.
As this is a 200 year old stone farmhouse, partially heated with wood, if you have a problem with "dust" i suggest you look elsewhere.
There is no cable but there is an extensive movie collection and you may also hook up your own devices to play things in the movie room.
There is no air conditioning because the walls are 2 feet thick stone and it is unnecessary. There is radiator heat in winter.
I am a garden designer, so you are welcome to chill in the gardens. There are also some great trails on the mountain.
Guests have access to most everything except my kitchen. There is a microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker in the master suite with the queen bed.
Interaction with guests
I tend to be live and let live, but am friendly and always willing to answer questions and help.
