Description

Paradise-Found! Rare is it that such a large piece of awe-inspiring land (72+ acres) w/ unrivaled views & a masterfully crafted home comes on the market in North-East PA. Welcome to the recently created B&B, Chestnuthill Countryside Manor, also home to Pohopoco Creek Alpacas. A 2400' paved driveway leads to a 6400' French-inspired stone estate with 5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms, 4 car garage, heated in-ground pool & 6 stall barn. A private setting with stunning views seen from just about every window. An impressive entry w/ massive double French doors sets the stage for the magnificence of this home. The foyer is spacious and has a spiral wooden staircase with wrought iron banisters. It opens to a dramatic great-room with timber rafters complementing a soaring tongue & groove ceilingRadiant heat Terracotta tile floors, granite counter tops, tile backsplashes & a walk-in pantry are some of the features of the gourmet custom kitchen. It's equipped with a Viking stove, double ovens & a Subzero refrigerator. The formal dining room has a kitchen & foyer entry. French doors open from the foyer into a spacious sunken office/studio w/ handsome custom wood paneling & a decorative mosaic design in the middle of the tiled floor. Craftsmanship & character continue to the upper level with an elongated loft enhanced by wood & wrought-iron banisters. Another vantage point of the great-room & raftered ceiling had to be the goal of this design. The master bedroom suite enjoys privacy being at one end of the corridor. It has an abundance of windows, a balcony, 2 large walk-in closets & luxurious bathroom with a radiant heat floor. Located at the other end are 4 spacious bedrooms which are serving as guestrooms for the B&B. 2 Jack & Jill bathrooms create a semi-private bathroom for guests. The laundry room is conveniently located on this floor. A 2nd staircase leads back down to a hall with a separate entrance. The barn has 6 box stalls with upper bars as dividers so horses can socialize & a sizable loft for hay storage. Aisleway & wash/grooming area. Attached is a dry-lot that opens to larger pastures. A small building has been converted to a cute boutique that sells Alpaca fleece products. There is a run-in shed in a small paddock. A large pole building can be used for equipment storage, cars, supplies or tools. A creek runs through the lower portion of the property. An older barn used for storage is located near the road by the driveway entrance. One of the finest views & settings I've encountered in all my years of brokerage. Eagles can be seen flying to their nest in the woods. This is a very special property. Continue on with the B&B, expand to a vineyard, a horse breeding or training farm or simply enjoy as a second home oasis. Preserved land with conservation easement which is in doc section Seller is an inactive real estate broker - license is in escrow.
