This log cabin for sale on Lightcap Road in Unity, Pennsylvania, most likely was built by the Lightcap family.
Solomon Lightcap (aka Leibgap) was born in 1718 in Krefield, Germany, and immigrated to Bucks County, Pennsylvania, as a young man. There, he married Catherine Hauswith. Together they had 10 children; three sons, Solomon Jr., Michael and Jacob; and seven daughters, Anna Marie, Elizabeth, Esther, Maria Elizabeth, Margaret, Magdelena and Catherine.
After the Revolutionary War, the Lightcap brothers took an oath of allegiance with each other, but settled in three different areas. The brothers had large families, so any number of descendant may have lived here before the Civil War.
If you like it primitive, this is an interesting property. Although it sits on almost an acre, you will also have to like close neighbors.
This unique 2 story log cabin for sale is situated on almost an acre lot of level land with a small stable/shed and an oversized outbuilding with electric that would make a great workshop. This log home was built prior to the Civil War and has the original ceiling beams and exposed log walls.
There are two large bedrooms upstairs with a partial bath. The lower level has a finished game room with a wood burning stove, another finished room that could be a 3rd bedroom, full bath and a laundry room. There are 3 wood burning fireplaces including a brick fireplace with wrought iron swing arm in the kitchen.
Enjoy rustic country living with the large covered front porch or the rear deck while still being close to shopping, dining etc.
