20 Ruscitto Lane | Scenery Hill, PA
Grandiose in style with a Tara theme. An 11 room Federal colonial constructed of solid brick during the Civil War with many improvements. Solid concrete pillars and front balusters give the covered front veranda built in 1976 a true elegance. The gated front entry with ponds on either side of the bridge sets the stage.
