If you missed this property when it was snatched up in August 2015, here’s your chance to buy it again. New owners have completed the basement (except for painting, bathroom hook-ups & fixtures) and installed an elaborate water filtration system among other things. A list of improvements can be found on the bottom.
Unparalleled luxury in this private gated acreage estate 73 miles from NYC. The long elegant lit drive leads back to a perfectly staged oasis. Resplendent open floor plan with generous ceiling heights, an abundance of light and Amish crafted “character” maple flooring. A wall of windows in the magnificent great room showcases a ½-acre well-cared-for swimming pond stocked with trophy trout and catfish. A smartly designed area combines the dining room and living room, which is complemented by a Valley Forge field stone fireplace. Effortless indoor/outdoor living is embraced when the glass doors are open to the expansive 800 foot Brazilian Ipe deck overlooking the water and manicured grounds. Stone-made waterfall and dock create a resort-like atmosphere making this five-year “new” residence an extraordinary entertaining venue.
A beautifully equipped center-island, eat-in kitchen provides a haven for even the most discriminating chef. Custom mocha glazed maple cabinets, onyx granite, walk-in pantry and top end appliances complete this area, including a newly installed garbage disposal.
The gracious main floor master suite presents a luxurious bath with grotto shower, sumptuous soaking tub and walk-in closets. A sun filled square sitting room opens to private deck entrance. An open hallway on the second floor maximizes the water front views at an elevated level and adjoins two bedrooms and a fully appointed bathroom.
Above the 3-car garage with a radiant heat floor is a 700 square foot dormered room ideal for an executive who requires personal space away from the main living area, a gym or library.
The lower level is nearly completed with sheet rock, beautiful dropped ceilings, solid-wood doors and finished recessed lighting; this adds approximately 2,200 square feet to the total square footage of approx. 6500 square feet. Downstairs you will find two bedrooms (or one bedroom and large office), a sitting room with built in bookcases, a media room, and a full bath. This spacious area with an abundance of windows opens to a water front patio complete with newly installed fencing.
Virtually every room enjoys sweeping vistas thanks to the 65+ Pella windows. Conscientiously built with radiant heated floors on first and lower levels and garage. Energy heating efficiency options built into construction. Superior Wall foundation. Generac propane generator. Newly installed UV Viqua water system.
Wildlife abounds on this property including the PA Big 3 (bear, deer & turkey). Gardens add to outdoor enjoyment. Beautiful flowering plants and mature trees are sited strategically throughout the property along with an 18-tree orchard including pears, apples and asian pears.
This estate sits on 60 glorious acres and has a pole barn that can be easily converted to a stable. About 10 acres are in orchard grass and there is an existing network of riding trails. Excellent site for horse farm with large pastures. Endless possibilities like exercise track for racing, indoor arena, etc.
