Property Description

The winding drive leads from the c.1874 bank barn through an allee and across creek and meadow to arrive at one of the finest examples of understated luxury and superb craftsmanship in Berks County. The custom estate home is sited on 52.89 conserved acres with amazing views. Magnificent exterior brickwork took 6 months to perfect, while exquisite details create a sophisticated interior that feels intimate and comfortable. The grand entry hall graced with inlaid Brazilian cherry floor, columns and impressive curved staircase with balcony opens to the living room with 15' detailed tray ceiling, huge windows and gas fireplace. The colorful light-filled kitchen with burlwood cabinets and hi-end appliances is anchored by the large island. At one end is the open dining room with concrete oval table positioned below the recessed oval ceiling. At the other end is the breakfast room with octagonal vaulted ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows looking onto the 2-story portico and outdoor kitchen. Butler pantry with built-in offers a convenient side door from the front porch and laundry room. The 1st floor hall is an architectural indulgence with a series of arches and layered moldings and leads to the walnut-paneled library with coffered ceiling. A bedroom suite with entry vestibule offers a deluxe bathroom with hand-painted tub and steam shower. The main bedroom suite is a stunning example of refinement. The rotunda entry hall with domed ceiling and plaster medallion leads to the pear wood dressing room and sumptuous bath retreat with oversized travertine marble shower, two vanities and jetted tub. The bedroom boasts 18' barrel ceiling with extraordinary plaster molding. Two bedroom suites, one with large sitting room, both with travertine marble bathrooms are upstairs. Downstairs is the family room with oak molding and paneled gas FP, reading room and French doors to a grass quad. The rec room has a play loft, the studio provides sink and work space and the heated 3-car garage has W/D and pet bath. The grounds are lush with landscaping and stately brick walls. Tennis court; 30x50 pool with water fall spa and large bluestone patio is crowned by the curved colonnade pergola framing long-distance views. The pool house with loggia echoes the house style. Inspired by antiquity, gracious country living is within 15 min of an airport accommodating private jets, 5 min to golfing, 1 hr to Harrisburg, 1.5 to Philly, 2.5 to NYC. Priced well below the est $5M replacement cost.
