19th Century Brick Home with Garden

$85,000 or Best Offer

Located in the scenic town of Greensboro, PA on the Monongahela, this historic brick home was built by a famous 19th C. pottery manufacturer. Just one block from the river, the back porch offers views of a stone-terraced yard with fertile garden bottomland along a creek with bamboo grove, outbuildings and stone root cellar. The house has five rooms, one bath, full basement, and spacious hallway. Exposed brick kitchen with huge brick fireplace opens onto back porch with secluded view of garden. New energy efficient furnace, washer/dryer hook-up, stove, refrigerator, and antique cupboard included.

Located in the Greensboro historic district, pop. 300, the town maintains a health center, post-office, and municipal park with swimming pool, baseball field, basketball court, large playground and old-fashioned roller rink. The town has a public boat launch, a handicapped kayak launch, bike trail, and community garden spaces. An easy kayak row across the river to the walking trails of The Nathaniel Greene National Historic site, Greensboro is located on the Warrior trail and is within a half-hour’s drive of Morgantown, Waynesburg, and Uniontown, and an hour and twenty minutes from Pittsburgh. The town of Greensboro has several businesses, including a classical used bookshop, antique shop with music lessons, ceramic studio, woodshop, metal shop, and historic bed and breakfast overlooking the Mon. River. Two community non-profit organizations support the arts with an annual arts and music festival in Greensboro, and a weekly farmer’s market.
