Located just north of Lebanon Valley College, the historic Lebanon County “Hill Farm” property is available for sale with a listed price of $2.5 million.

The 23.8-acre North Annville Township property was, up until recently, home to Hill Farm Estate Senior Living. The estate was built in 1919 by Aaron S. Kreider, a former United States congressman and LVC alumnus.

“It’s an awesome property,” said Coldwell Banker real estate agent Nicholas Devitz. “It’s up there on the hill, and it overlooks the valley. It’s pretty awesome.”

Devitz said the building has had add-ons throughout the year, including for its most recent use as a senior living facility. As of May 31, no residents were living in the facility, Devitz said.

Although the home could certainly work as a single-family dwelling – maybe an especially large family, with 46 private rooms outfitted – its best use is probably as some kind of personal care home, Devitz said.

The building itself is in relatively good shape, with some deferred maintenance needs. Devitz said he hopes that the property ends up with someone who wants to preserve the building and what’s there.

“With it being as unique as it is, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when hitting the market with it,” said Devitz. “I’d say I’m pleasantly surprised with the number of people tour the property.”

Devitz said no one has yet made an offer on it, but some parties are doing additional research and due diligence.

Although the parcel borders Lebanon Valley College, known in Annville for its large appetite for local properties – and is actually next-door neighbors with the LVC president’s house, Kreiderheim – Devitz said no one from the college has yet contacted realtors to express interest.

An LVC spokesperson was unable to confirm whether the college had any interest in it.

“I’d just love to see it go to someone that’s able to bring it back to what it once was,” said Devitz.

The property is zoned by North Annville Township as R-2 Medium-Density Residential, which allows for single- and two-family housing, special care residential and retirement living complexes, and group family dwellings among the permitted uses.
