Property Details

543 FRIEDENSBURG RD, Reading, Pennsylvania 19606 - If your looking for a home with character come on in. This circa 18th century farmette was built in 1790 as a springhouse on a once sprawling farm. The current owners have redone the kitchen with all new handcrafted cabinets, quartz counter tops, wood burning stove in the old hearth complete with a functioning wood oven, wood plank flooring, stainless steal dishwasher, oven/stove, overhead microwave, and refrigerator. There is a sunken tiled sitting area off the kitchen with a half bath. The living room has original wood flooring. The 2nd floor contains the master, 2nd bedroom and full bath. The 3rd floor has been finished to create a large 3rd bedroom. The home has been updated with wall mounted air conditioning on all floors which can also double as a heating source during those colder days. The current owners use the wood stove to heat the entire home to save on gas. The original root cellar is located in the well maintained landscaped front yard and can still be used to store canned goods. The roof was replaced in 2014 with architectural shingling and the metal roof above the brick porch was replaced in the past year. There is off street parking in the rear of the home accessed by a township owned alley.
