Enclosed entirely by a century-old, handmade stone wall, the estate includes a large Sylvan pool (25’x55’) with pool house (including changing room and kitchenette), tennis courts, reservoir stream and pond with boathouse and waterfall, putting green, 7 garage bays, tank hangar, play house and gazebo. Manor is being sold beautifully furnished, and features 4 master suites with luxury bedding, sitting areas, TVs and adjacent baths, and Thibaut wallpaper; plus a central steam room with heated floor. Two large living rooms, each with original Pennsylvania stone fireplaces and rare, American Elm wood-beamed ceilings, doors, original windows and woodwork flank the central kitchen, breakfast nook and dining room. The screened-in porch views the pool, grounds, and hummingbird garden. A large and elegant stone patio shaded by gingko trees connects the main house to the cottage and features 2 large oblong dining tables with umbrellas, a firepit, and a large grill. Built in 1914, the Pennsylvania Forestry certified estate includes glorious specimen trees from all over the world, with a continuous display of blooms and fall color from magnolias, dogwoods, lilacs, hydrangeas, rhododendrons, forsythia, and japanese, red and sugar (syrup) maple plantings.
