Steeped in history, a treasured stone house—the Cross House—is for sale.

Built in 1820, this classic end-gabled, two-story home has a symmetrical facade with a simple center doorway, and six-over-six windows.

There is a chimney at each gable end with two fireplaces upstairs and two down, all with original mantles.

The current owner, an antique lover, has repointed, rewired and updated the plumbing and enhanced the exposed beams and plank floors.

Nestled on 10.86 acres, the two-story home has three bedrooms, one a primary suite.

You’ll find two bathrooms, a finished attic loft, living room and delightful kitchen and dining area with wood stove.

Move out to the enclosed porch off the kitchen to look out over three pastoral fields with mature birch trees, leading down to an idyllic swimming pond passing a gentle stream starting at the spring house.

The location is convenient to Hamlin and Lake Wallenpaupack for sports and shopping and Honesdale for music, art and restaurants.
