This property is located along the headwaters of Loyalhanna Creek in the scenic Ligonier Valley, and features a three-bedroom home, historic log house and barn. The property includes 2,500 feet of frontage on the main stem of the creek and features 40 acres of cleared land, most recently used for the grazing of cattle.
The property also includes 50 acres of mature hardwoods, including oak, hickory and cherry. Wetland habitat along Loyalhanna Creek is ideal for viewing a wide variety of wildlife. The property is adjacent to a 172-acre farm that was protected by the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy in 2008 through an agricultural easement. It is also in close proximity to over 3,000 acres of land in the Loyalhanna Creek watershed protected through WPC conservation easements.
The three-bedroom home was renovated in 2001 and features a modern design, high-efficiency propane furnace and in-floor heat, commercial-grade appliances, handmade cabinets and an open concept floorplan with ample natural light. The log house has great potential as a guest home.
The natural features of this property will be protected through a conservation easement to be held by the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy. If you wish to visit the property, please contact WPC Land Protection Manager Matt Marusiak at 814-776-1114.
