AUCTION: Discover a piece of history nestled within the serene landscape of the R-1 Residential zoning district in West Whiteland Township. The Barn, occupying a generous 1.73-acre lot, has been identified by the Township as a Designated Historic Resource (site no. 329.02), being a component of the former Jacobs Homestead, also known as "Solitude." Historic structures are eligible for uses not otherwise permitted by the Zoning district regulations, pursuant to $325-86 of the Zoning Ordinance.

The barn is eligible for the following use by right under this section:

Guesthouse, which is defined as a single-family dwelling with rooms available for overnight accommodation of paying guests.

The barn is also eligible for the following uses by conditional use, which requires review by the Township Planning Commission and a public hearing before the Board of Supervisors:

  • Multi-family residential (i.e., apartments);
  • Professional or business office;
  • Cultural studio, which is defined as the place of work of an artist, including visual artists, musicians, dancers, and similar vocations;
  • Cultural facility, which is defined as museum or art gallery, provided that it is not operated commercially;
  • Inn, which is defined as essentially the same as a hotel;
  • Restaurant; or
  • Any combination of these uses.

Please note that retail sales are NOT permitted.

Should the owner of the property wish to remove the barn, the demolition permit will need to be reviewed by the Township Historical Commission. While the Commission does not have the authority to deny the permit, they may and typically do require documentation of the structure prior to demolition. Furthermore, demolition will render the property ineligible for the uses allowed under $325-86 as listed in the bullet-point lists above.

During the period that West Whiteland Township ("Tenant") occupies the property following settlement, the Tenant shall remain responsible for the rendering of any payment of any school, county, or municipal (the “Taxing Bodies”) property taxes associated with the property. No property taxes will accrue to the Owner ("Landlord") during this period. The Landlord is therefore not responsible for any property taxes during this period.
