Located on a peaceful and eye-catching street in Derry Township stands this stylish Mid-Century modern rancher that is simply amazing. Marlin Umberger was an esteemed builder throughout the Hershey area for over 40 years. Those who selected Marlin, wanted the best—a elite home with unsurpassed craftsmanship. To this day, a home built by Marlin Umberger is considered to be a home of high quality. His ability to add unique touches to his properties is on full display at 427 Maple Avenue. Marlin did not only limit himself to home construction and remodeling. He also built timeless furniture and home décor. His style incorporated elements of the great architect Frank Lloyd Wright, whom he greatly admired. He was trained in carpentry, wood-working and home construction in both the vocational school of Hershey High of the 1930s as well as by local contractors who built many of the homes in the downtown village of Hershey. As you enter the front door and into the foyer you will notice exquisite design and fun amenities such as an open floor plan, high ceilings, built-in speakers, and large windows that allow lots of warm natural light to fill each room.
