“Mind blown. That's how I felt when I toured this incredibly gorgeous and unique property!” Kissinger Bigatel and Brower Realtor Liz Piazza posted to Facebook this week. “Grounds like the nicest park you can imagine, an interior that has no rival for attention to detail. Even if it was adequately and accurately described to me, I wouldn't have been prepared for its beauty.”
The property boasts 7.4 acres of stunning grounds, gardens, a pond, and Galbraith Gap Run stream, a portion of an old stone barn standing with a gorgeous water feature and an incredible 7-bedroom home with nearly 6,300 finished square footage.
You can enjoy the virtual tour and 78 pictures here on the property detail page, but there is nothing like seeing it in person. You can schedule a tour (and see more photos) on this detail page.
Get to Know Boalsburg
Historic Boalsburg is the place to go if you’re looking for a quaint neighborhood with historic appeal. Known as the birthplace of Memorial Day, the small village is home to multiple museums, as well as a handful of local shops and restaurants, many on one compact main street. Then, when you’re ready to immerse yourself in Happy Valley’s gorgeous natural scenery, you’re just minutes away from outdoor adventure — and Penn State’s campus.
You can easily find a home with a lot of space and/or land in Boalsburg, but if you're looking for a neighborhood feel, try the Springfield Commons development, at the foot of Tussey Mountain. Another option is the new development of upscale modern and transitional-style homes, Rockey Ridge. Don’t need a standalone single-family home? You might consider the townhomes at Elksview.
Boalsburg is home to innovative employers both large and small, including EnergyCAP and Blatek Industries.
Popular attractions include the Columbus Chapel and Boal Mansion Museum, Boalsburg Heritage Museum and Pennsylvania Military Museum. For outdoor fun regardless of the season, try Tussey Mountain Ski and Recreation, Rothrock State Forest, Harvest Fields Community Trails or Climb Nittany.
