Recreating 18th-century aesthetic for contemporary living

Explore picturesque estate lots, historic farm Sunday, Nov. 11, and Sunday, Nov. 18, from 1-3 p.m. in Rapho Township

Perhaps once in your life you discover a place that beckons you, a place where you know you belong. A place where history comes alive in the pre-1850, 18th-century architecture reminiscent of a simpler way of life.

That place is The Hills of Jamesfield Manor — an idyllic haven nestled in the rolling hills and meandering streams of Lancaster County.

These seven estate lots are situated on dozens of scenic acres, the perfect setting for a rebuilt or original historic dwelling, or construction of your “newly historic” home. This offers you the opportunity to design and build your Nantucket/Cape Cod-period home on rural acreage nestled away in the rolling hills of Rapho Township near Route 283 in the Manheim Central School District.

Discover the promise of an unhurried lifestyle complemented by modern conveniences … the appeal of serene, bucolic surroundings where the past seems undisturbed … the allure of a way of life as unique and distinctive as you.

Discover why The Hills of Jamesfield Manor may be the perfect place to call home!

In The Hills of Jamesfield Manor you will also find the beautiful Meadow View Plantation, a 94.3-acre farm that is also for sale. Bordering the plantation is the Little Chiques Creek, Brubaker Run and an unnamed tributary to Brubaker Run. The joining of these three stream valleys creates an aesthetically pleasing topography unlike most farms in Lancaster County.

The 18th-century barn and the 19th-century brick farmhouse have both been recognized by the Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County. The 5,000-plus-square-foot barn has been fully restored, receiving the prestigious C. Emlen Urban award for restoration excellence.

Both the interior and exterior setting is breathtaking and perfect for special events. The exterior of the farmhouse has been restored adding to the historical charm of the farm. Inside the farmhouse are original hardwood floors throughout and bright natural light in every room.

The farm offers panoramic views of scenic acreage with unique landscape features, such as glacial moraine rock formations evident of the last Ice Age.

This is truly a one-of-a-kind setting unmatched in Lancaster County.
