    Description

    AUCTION: Previously Offered for $2.5M. No Reserve. Open Daily 1-4PM by Appt. The historical Conestoga House has been one of the most beloved gems of the Lancaster area since the early 1800's, when it was originally used as a tavern for the Conestoga wagon trade between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, and then as an inn in the 1840's. Purchased and remodeled in 1927 by the late James Hale Steinman and Louise McClure (Tinsley) Steinman, this three-story Colonial revivalist mansion still maintains much of the same beauty, grandeur, and elegance as it did in the early 20th century. The 12-bedroom, 9,688-square-foot estate has been adored, not just by the friends, family, and guests who enter, but the entire community as well. The property is famous for its 7.8 acres of impeccably maintained grounds and gardens featuring over 3,300 annuals, about 400 tropical plants, over 160 varieties of perennials and over 160 rose bushes representing almost 20 different varieties of the flower. Spend the warm summer days splashing in the vast 60-foot in-ground pool, or strolling along the wide variety of gardens and greenhouses across all 7.8 acres.
