What YOU need is a stream-side cottage! Somewhere where you could kick your heels up, watch the mayflies coming off the water, and maybe treat a few close friends to some quality fishing.

Consider this lovely fixer-upper along the quiet, scenic waters of Spruce Creek!

This property is also a hotspot for babes:

You've toiled all your life, haven't you earned the right to splurge a little?*

*Note: Offer only worth considering for people with more disposable income than God himself. If you happen to have 3.2 million lying around, however, send me a PM and we'll be right on track to becoming the best friends ever.

Ahh, that's a kick in the bucket if you won the Powerball on Wednesday.

Someone will buy it. I might if I could afford it. Be a great base of operations for the area. First order of business would be a permit to remove that dam and the concrete raceway.

I wouldn't but it. Why spend THAT kind of money on a "stocked" trout stream. Imagine what it might be worth if it was a WILD trout stream!

It will not sell that high, but asking that will help it sell for more than it is worth. It would be great if someone bought it and became an advocate locally for not stocking. It may take a few years, but it will revert wild, and have migrants from stocked sections. An interesting mix, like the Harvey Stretch.

That house has it's own Internet site:

Fairbrook Manor

There's even a small section on fly fishing:

Even if you were able to get a good deal on the house, it would still take a crap load of money to fix the place up. Based on the article, it sounds like the house hasn't been lived in full time for many decades. Also the bathrooms haven't been updated since they were installed in the 60's.

Is this a typo:

Real Estate taxes $5034.00

Or has some form of property tax reform come to Huntingdon County?

I'm paying more than half of that amount in property taxes and I do not live in a 1.5 Million dollar house..

I hope to buy a vacation home in the next few years and my wife surprised me by saying she'd rather have a place in the ''mountains/country'' vs. a beach house. With all of the changes in the state due to the drilling activity were would you pick as the place to be. i know everyones interest will vary but just curious to see what responses I'll get.



Hey Andy.....here ya go!
