CARVERSVILLE, Pennsylvania, 18913 $2,995,000
Just up the hill from the heart of Carversville is one of the most beautiful properties you've never seen. That's because the estate known as Belle Terre is tucked deep within a 12+ acre natural oasis high above the Panacussing Creek. As you meander over your private bridge and up the drive, this distinctive property is unveiled. Although built in 1987, it feels like it has a much worldlier story to tell. In the manor house, the main floor owners retreat is surrounded by walls of glass to fully take in the natural beauty outside. Whether you want to cozy up to the stone fireplace or relax in the jetted tub, peace and tranquility are the name of the game here. The master bath offers soapstone counters and a large tiled steam shower as well as a very gracious walk in closet and a sitting room with a lovely brick fireplace. Follow the rustic brick flooring to the well appointed kitchen complete with a professional Vulcan range, Sub Zero refrigerator and Draper cabinetry. Impressive structural beams run through to the family room which is anchored by a massive brick wall with an actual cook stove and a wood burning stove for cold winter nights. The Gathering Room has period wood flooring from France and is adorned with a Peter Smith hand painted mural while affording stunning views out back. Flanking this area is the generous dining room with striking reclaimed wide plank wood flooring and the gracious living room, home to vintage English paneling, leaded glass windows and a marble fireplace. But the piece de resistance is the gorgeous terrace spanning the rear of the home. From here you can enjoy the peaceful sights and sounds of the creek and beyond. Upstairs you will find three en suite bedrooms, each with it's own style. The basement is perfect for storing all of your treasures. And don't forget to bring your horses! The beautiful 2 story barn offers three stalls, a washing station, and tack room, all only steps from a large paddock. Upstairs could house an event area, office or whatever you can imagine. Atop the three car garage sits the private caretakers/in law/au pair cottage. Here your guests will feel at home with a full kitchen, great room, 2 bedrooms and a bath, all within steps of the heated pool and spa. And if you would like to live like you are off the grid, geothermal heat and solar power make this closer to reality than ever! Other interesting amenities include copper sinks and fixtures, Colby and Colby casement windows, a door from the home of Jamie Wyeth, custom European tiles, reclaimed wide plank Vermont wood flooring, alabaster chandelier, reclaimed brick from Philadelphia, custom french doors and so much more. Add to all of this magnificent grounds filled with acres of perennials and many species of trees and you have a bucolic setting that cannot be beat!
