This Awe-Inspiring, All-Brick 2 Story Colonial Built on ½ Acre of Sprawling Land
Is Waiting to Exceed Your Expectations At the Unbelievable Price of $369,900!
Welcome to Greencastle, PA, a town where hard work and high achievement is in our blood.
Flashback to 1741. Cattle herders from Baltimore to Harrisburg would meet at Allison’s Tavern in Antrim Township to gather supplies and trade.
Today, right where Allison’s Tavern stood, you’ll find Greencastle.
The town’s name is also a strong reminder of the town’s ancestors from Germany, Scotland, Switzerland Ireland, who were drawn to the area for its fertile soil and promise for growth. William Allison, a key player in Greencastle’s history and owner of Allison’s Tavern, left his son John 300 acres of land with which to do with what he please.
John founded Greencastle in 1782 and created a town where buildings, homes and businesses could thrive. And thrive they did.
Today, the town boasts of a heroic military history and one of the best school districts in the state. Graduation rates exceed state averages by over 10%!
Down Williamson Road and Left onto Walter Avenue, you’ll find 2970 square-foot two-story brick colonial home waiting to exceed your expectations.
Housed in the one-of-a-kind community of Heritage Estates, at 426 W Walter Ave, is a one-of-a-kind home that is a refreshing reprieve from the cookie-cutter look of other neighborhoods in Greencastle. Built on a half-acre of sprawling land, this home is equal parts convenience and frontier.
Let’s take a peek inside, shall we?
Walk through the red front door, and step into a gorgeous, bright and airy foyer with beautiful wood floors that are so shiny you can catch your own reflection as you’re walking by.
Stylish wainscoting along the stairwell and entryway walls add an added sense of luxury to the already grand home. Meanwhile, oversized windows bring a wealth of natural light into every corner of the main level. This large, open plan design is sure to leave a sense of awe and envy among your visitors and guests.
The builders of this home clearly had impeccable (and elegant) taste! Let’s head over to the family and see what they did there.
A central gas fireplace adds an extra layer of warmth to cool, winter nights. 19x15 square feet of space make this room perfect for entertaining evening guests and serving up sunset cocktails as you decompress from a long work day or share jokes with relatives or friends. Or, spend a lazy Sunday afternoon here, curled up with a good book as you enjoy the warm sunlight wash in through the oversized windows.
Just on the other side is a 14x13 foot living room. Perfect for extended family visits or that Saturday night movie night at home. Have you been dreaming of a big flat screen TV (or projector screen)? The attached family room and living room combo give you the best of both worlds. Want to watch the big game on Sunday night while your little ones play cards? Go for it! Want to host a late-night spa party but still give your family room to relax? Go for it!
The sky’s the limit here!
Want more good news? Both rooms offer easy access to the rest of the lower level and the 20x15 foot kitchen.
Gorgeous wood floors and brand new countertops make this room pretty easy on the eye. Also, there is a central bar area that can easily double as an island. The extra space is bound to get your social engines running. Drink. Indulge. Dine. Share a glass of wine with friends as you try out that new Gordon Ramsey recipe you saw last week. Or, tell jokes with your family over coffee and pancakes in the morning.
At night, the eat-in kitchen can be appetizer central, the perfect place to warm up your guests before heading over to the attached 14x13 dining room for the big meal.
And big is the best word for it! This room is even more elegant than the entryway. Guests are sure to appreciate the two large double windows and breathtaking chandelier and that adds an extra layer of drama to the room. Time to break out those colored plates or fancy China you’ve been saving. Every dinner in this room will feel like dining in a 5-star hotel!

The guest bathroom has double sinks, which makes it perfect for out of town guests, family and couples.
Of course, while your guests are enjoying their own retreat, no luxury was spared at all in your master suite! With 26x15 feet of space, the master bedroom will fit a King-sized bed and King-sized ambitions too. Have you been dreaming of a bedroom reading nook? There’s plenty of room for a comfy chair and ottoman that you can cozy up in while your honey tucks in for the night.

You sure won’t feel guilty about that next shopping trip you’re planning. There’s more than enough space to fill here!
And when it’s time to rest and relax after a long day at the store, there is a generously-sized spa tub waiting to help you find your zen. Take all the time you need to soak away your cares in here. Bring a book and a little music, and you might even spend so long in the tub that you might forget you’re at home altogether! Just don’t get too cozy on a Monday morning, or you might have an extended weekend on your hands.
Speaking of weekends, did we mention this home comes with a built-in, raised wooden deck? Spend your nights soaking in the beauty of nature from your own backyard. Enjoy the peace and quiet of small town life, while appreciating the simple pleasures of living in a town where you can feel truly safe. Neighbors wave to neighbors, kids play safely on the side-walked streets, and the whole town takes the time to celebrate their history during “Old Homes Week.”
