Welcome to a hallmark of good design with this turn-key home in sought-after Octorara Glen. Take in the exceptional .46 +/- acre property showcasing spectacular views of the rolling countryside and the open space the home backs up to! This brick front colonial features 3,500+ sq ft of living space, 9 ft+ ceilings, and a spacious 3 car attached garage. Be greeted by the handsome balcony and the front pillars flanking the main entrance to a stately front door with transom window above and panels of glass along the side. Through the door and into the vaulted 2-story main foyer, you will be welcomed with an amazing flow of light between the window and the gleaming hardwoods reflecting it. Notice the handsome wall of built-ins in the adjacent study.
Off to your right is a formal living room with more of that abundance of natural light. Detailed and upscale wainscoting and crown molding in the living room and dining room create a luxurious feel. Neutral décor and plush carpeting! The curved wall of windows in the dining is a breathtaking notable bonus with tranquil views of the countryside beyond. You may just sight a horse and buggy or two!
Prepare your delectable meals in the grand and open gourmet kitchen. With all of the extra counter space and center island, you will find yourself dreaming up new dishes to try out. The double sink makes washing dishes a breeze. This kitchen with gas cooking is a real showstopper. Plenty of recessed lighting along with the beautiful window over the counter with arched glass above allow for lots of light. Charming, is the breakfast area where you can sit and relax and enjoy your family’s company together with views of the outdoors and a door to go outside to the Juliet Balcony.
Take your meals and the parties outside on a cool summer night to the Juliet Balcony and enjoy the views of the fenced-in backyard. Beyond that, are scenic and pastoral vistas of the open space and the very best local secret, Buck Run, stocked for Trout fishing! Enjoy this peaceful fishing spot and listen to the beautiful sound of songbirds as the fledglings grow and leave their nests. The open field provides a visual display of migrating birds including Blue Birds, Tree Swallow’s, Chickadee and Wren’s to name a few. Pull up a chair and take in the stars and constellations and relax by the twinkling sky.
As you enter through the 2-story great room you will be impressed by the cathedral ceilings with ceiling fan light fixture and an amazing floor to ceiling wall of windows with arched glass above bringing the outdoors in. Perfect for the beautiful orange and purple sunset skyline above the trees and viewing stars and the moon all night long. Take in the tranquil serenity of your personal nature show of wildlife from the coziness of your own home. A fireplace will help to warm you up on chilly nights.
As you grace the grand turned staircase, you’ll notice the plush carpeting underfoot and just may catch the sparkle of the exquisite pendant chandelier filtering sun rays and creating rainbows all throughout the hallway. Tranquility awaits in your luxurious master bedroom suite complete with a master bath and extra sitting room with tray ceiling. The bedroom features 2 closets with an additional oversized walk-in closet. The master bathroom features a large soaking tub perfectly positioned for warmth and light and separate shower stall and double bowl vanity sinks.
