Rose Cottage in the Village of Oregon, is a cozy, traditional 1890's house with 1 bath, 2 bedrooms (potentially 3), and offers lots of country charm, privacy, and a lush secluded garden. Structurally sound, well kept and very clean! Mailing address: 1191 Creek Road, Leola PA 17540 House Inspection (VA) recently conducted 3/23/2021. Well, septic, water, all passed. Suggestions in report have been addressed, including the installation a new picture window in Sunroom, and on May 5th 2021, a new 50-year extended mfg. warranteed Roof. Great location. Country living yet only 5-miles from Lancaster City, minutes away from major shopping centers, Lancaster Airport, hospitals and Lititz, ''Coolest Town in America- 2013''! It still is. Oregon Road is around the corner. Less than 1/2 mile is Oregon Pike, Rt. 272 with access to Rt. 222 (north to PA Turnpike, -south to Rt. 30). Manheim Township -considered the best School District in Lancaster County. Rose Cottage is one of the few homes on scenic Creek Road. It's mostly Amish farms. Through the pastures winds the Lititz Run (the Creek). The Millport Conservancy / Wildlife Refuge is about a mile away with nature trails, fly fishing classes, educational opportunities, etc. As well, this is a good area for walking and biking along country roads, over nearby historic covered bridges that cross the Conestoga River. Modest size rooms throughout. Southern exposure - there's plenty of good natural light. Of special interest: the Butler's Pantry, the 2nd floor Sunroom, Attic storage, a dragon-red paneled front door, and antique hardware: porcelain door knobs, hinges, box locks, thumb latches, and an antique cast iron hand pump that still pumps well water. Outdoor Living. A roofed deck just outside the kitchen door, and a grape arbor, 10' x 12' (with picnic table and benches), help create a relaxed get-away, for R & R, enjoying the garden, bird watching, and dining al fresco. Mature plantings, tall evergreen trees, and a rustic cypress fence afford seclusion and privacy. The garden boasts a sunny back lawn, raised vegetable garden beds, a goldfish/koi pond, a variety of mixed perennials and a grove of gorgeous hardy banana trees. The Garden was featured in the Lancaster Newspaper, Sunday, October 25th 2020, (LNP-Lancaster PA ). 'Pandemic Seclusion Leads to Backyard Jungle Oasis'. PDF copy available.
