Property Description

Calling horse trainers, mechanics, small business owners, etc.! Once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make your nest in a luxury log home on 5.04 acres. Immerse in a world of floor-to-ceiling wood, baby red foxes, and rural vistas---all without being isolated or compromising modern comforts. At over 4,500 square feet of living space, amenities abound: large granite kitchen, stainless steel appliances, vaulted cathedral ceilings, finished walk-out basement, superior wall foundation, 3 gas fireplaces, 3-car garage, separate warehouse/office building, 12x40 shed, sprawling deck... you just have to see it in person. Not only does the county rate this custom-built home as Grade A for construction, the owners have kept it in meticulous condition. You will certainly be inheriting peace of mind along with a phenomenal estate. The owners hired experts on log home maintenance and had the entire exterior finish removed and re-stained per professional advice. Additionally, all caulk was removed and replaced with the appropriate chinking. The kiln-dried logs have been professionally stained routinely per the recommended schedule with pine-specific oil. 5 sets of sliding glass doors have been replaced. New motor for radon mitigation system. Carpets replaced in master suite and basement. New burner ignitor on countertop gas stove. It has been important to the owners to pass on a home of for you and your family/friends. Guests can meander from the loft area (built-in surround speakers and shelves stay) to the vaulted living room, grab a few app's from the open kitchen, then down to the wet bar & full 2nd kitchen in the basement for a drink. You can take yours to the expansive deck to chat or watch baby deer, ducks, and other friendly wildlife bumbling about. As the temperature falls with the sun, gather ‘round the fireplace and watch the lights dance around the natural walls. Visitors can stay in the North Wing or basement, each of which has a full private bath and room. Leave the cleanup for tomorrow and retreat to the master suite with its vaulted ceiling, fireplace, and walk-in cedar closet. You can choose between the jacuzzi tub and tiled shower before sinking into bed with starlit country views streaming in through the glass. In the morning, start the day by stepping right out from your bedroom to the deck and filling your lungs with fresh Pennsylvania air. The West Wing is fully equipped with 2 smaller bedrooms, full bath, deck, separate heat pump, and warehouse. A previous owner used this wing for her small business: offices, warehouse for storage, etc. The current owner is an All-American wrestler for Michigan and used the warehouse as a wrestling room and for storing furniture for their rental/renovation projects. You could also store small boats, antique cars, have a very fancy gym—whatever you'd like. Separate 1 car bay is heated for you car afficionados. Home is built on shale, and the passive drain system runs downhill and works amazingly. PEX piping throughout. Natural gas option (pipeline came through the neighborhood after sellers purchased). The owners will miss hosting nice social events with colleagues, family, and intimate groups of friends, drinking wine on the deck, their neighbors, and easy access to Philly and New York. However, they have downsized and are touched to pass on torch to the next owners to create lifetime memories and enjoy this slice of paradise. Property goes to fence past the woods. Rural scene yet close to everything. Minutes to Penn National Race Course, Lower Dauphin schools (East Hanover Elementary), Memorial Lake, Fort Indiantown Gap, and stores & restaurants including Costco, Giant, Colonial Park Mall, etc. Easy access to major highways (743, 22, 81) for quick travel to Hershey, Harrisburg, Lancaster, York, and nearby metropolises. Come see it first hand, and make an offer before someone else does!
