Situated on a stately corner lot with mature trees, 85 S Whitehorse Road offers character, privacy and space that other twins and townhouses do not. Period details that differentiate this twin from others include: a wood trimmed archway between the living and dining rooms, iron heating registers, 5" wood trim in the living and dining areas, and high ceilings on BOTH the 1st and 2nd floors. Oversized windows allow for abundant natural light throughout the entire home. Enjoy gatherings in the nicely sized kitchen, which leads out to a screen-in back porch. The second floor has 3 bedrooms, with one bedroom having an outdoor porch facing the backyard. On the third floor, there is a 4th bedroom, a walk-in hall closet and nooks for storage. A long driveway provides plenty of space for parking. There is also a detached one car garage that would make a great workshop. Windows were replaced two years ago. Conveniently located minutes from downtown Phoenixville. Move in now and restore it to its original splendor on your own time frame. The results will definitely be worth it!

G.C. Murphy Building exterior_Johnsonburg PAG.C. Murphy Building, 519-521 Market Street, Johnsonburg  $50,000

  • Built in 1892, this potential-popping property is located in Johnsonburg's Historic District and designated a Historic Property. 
  • 12,750 square foot building is located on a 50 x 85 city lot
  • Three stories, plus a poured basement, has a 12 year old rubber roof, and 4 methods of egress.
  • Brick exterior, hardwood floors, city water, and natural gas.
 
From the owner: I purchased the GC Murphy building in 2014 with the sincere hope of saving it from falling into the hands of someone who didn't appreciate its historic properties or its potential. I owned a photography studio, which I moved into the building. The building was cleaned from top to bottom prior to my purchase. I added a washroom on the first floor; replaced the broken windows; refinished the first floor hardwood; and refinished one set of doors. There are so many ways that this treasure can be used; however, the changing industry has forced me to close my studio. My dream would be to have event spaces on the first and third floors with rooms for rent on the second floor.
 
Johnsonburg currently has no hotels, motels, or bed and breakfasts; so when people come to town for weddings, funerals, baptisms, family gatherings, business at the papermill, etc. they are forced to stay in a neighboring town. The GC Murphy building has so much character, and there is an empty lot just feet from the front door that would be wonderful for parking. (the empty lot does not come with the building) I hope that someone is able to purchase and bring this treasure to life or invest in saving it.

MLS # 2813533
Historical overview: The Gemmill Mill is a local landmark closely associated with the history of Alexandria and Porter Township. It occupies a large lot on the banks of the Juniata River, adjacent to the National Register-eligible Alexandria Historic District. The grandsons of town founder Elizabeth Gemmill built the imposing frame grist mill in 1833 near two important routes of travel and
commerce: the Pennsylvania Canal and the Huntingdon, Cambria and Indiana Turnpike. Under the ownership of Jacob Gemmill and then James H. Dysart, it was one of the most important mills in the area for over a century. Milling was discontinued when its mill dam on the Juniata River was destroyed by the great flood of 1936. In 1954 the property was acquired by John Rhodes who converted the building into a combined home and business. Since 2000 it has served as the headquarters office for a history/preservation/archaeology consulting firm which would like to find a preservation-minded new owner who values the building’s historical significance.

Although adapted for modern use, the Gemmill Mill still retains many of its original architectural features and is well-suited to serve a variety of possible functions.

Louis Kahn-designed Weiss House - AIA Gold Medal Winner

2935 Whitehall Road, E. Norriton   $995,000

From the National Trust for Historic Preservation, "The Houses of Louis Kahn": "Kahn described the Weiss House in East Norriton Township, Pennsylvania, as 'a house that is contemporary, but does not break away from tradition.' The wood and stone structure, built between 1947 and 1950 for local menswear shop owner Morton Weiss and his wife, showcases Kahn’s signature connection to the outdoors through a unique window system -- residents can rearrange opaque and transparent panels in the living space to control the amount of light being let in throughout the course of the day. The house, which won the American Institute of Architects Gold Medal in 1950, was the first that Kahn designed after returning from a tour of Italy, Greece, and Egypt. The total construction cost for the house, including cabinetry, furniture, and a Kahn-designed mural, was $50,000. Both Weisses continued to live in the house until their deaths in 2004."
This property is threatened with demolition or intensive development (150-room senior rental development, along with 180 parking spaces) on the 9.9 acre property.

Long-Term Leasing Opportunities
The Fairmount Park Conservancy offers civic organizations and businesses a unique opportunity to long-term lease historic park buildings through a collaborative agreement with the City of Philadelphia. Tenants commit to rehabilitate and maintain deteriorated buildings under a long-term lease administered by the Fairmount Park Conservancy. Adaptive uses must respect the historic fabric of the building, enable public access, and complement existing park uses. Prospective tenants can be helped with assessing the feasibility of leasing a park building, identify financial incentives, and manage the process of building rehabilitation and maintenance.

 SOMERSET COUNTY

319 E Main Street Stoytown-side view
 
319 East Main Street Stoystown $44,000Live on the Lincoln Highway! Designated as one of the 2 oldest brick buildings in historic Stoystown, and perhaps Somerset County, this two-story duplex, built circa 1830 in the Federal style is five by two bays with inside end chimneys and a recessed center entry enhanced by decorative carved and sawn woodwork. George Graham, a stockholder in the Stoystown and Greensburg Turnpike Company owned the property at one time and records show it has also housed a tavern and a wagon and carriage making business. Great potential to be a beautifully restored asset to the area. Currently the house contains two apartments- one two-bedroom unit and one 3-bedroom unit - occupied by established renters. It sits on a 0.28 acre lot with Oil/hot water and electric for heat.
Stoystown, founded in 1774, flourished from the early nineteenth through the mid-twentieth centuries as a popular travel stop along what was the Pennsylvania Road and later the Lincoln Highway, which followed the approximate route of the Forbes Trail. After the Lincoln Highway became Route 30, construction of a by-pass around Stoystown slowed business, but allowed preservation of the Lincoln Highway character of Main Street. Today this picturesque town consists of well-maintained architecturally significant structures and is located just three miles west of the Flight 93 National Memorial.
