Newmanstown, PA

Welcome to your own personal private wooded retreat! Expertly designed by Chris Carman, architect, and constructed by Fred A. Wiegand, builder, this truly remarkable property is bound to captivate you from the moment you arrive at its picturesque tree-lined driveway. As you enter the 26.1 acre property, you will be greeted by the sun filled clearing which unveils the meticulously maintained fenced pastures on your left and the perfectly contrasting contemporary home on your right. Designed to create a welcoming and peaceful space inspired by the beauty of nature, the home ushers you in with soft neutral colors, beautiful natural wood tones, and an abundance of natural light. You are immediately greeted by a vast open space with beautiful cathedral ceilings adorned with exposed wood beams and a solid stone stairwell adjoining the floor to ceiling fireplace, artfully created with a natural Pennsylvania stone blend.

The kitchen offers custom solid oak cabinets by Conestoga Valley Custom Kitchens, hardwood floors, skylights, an oversized granite island, double ovens, a wet bar complete with a wine fridge, and a spacious walk-in-pantry. Adjacent to the kitchen is the open concept dining room which is perfectly positioned near the cedar-lined screened in porch where you can take in the tranquil tree-lined views. Or perhaps you’d prefer to cozy up with a book next to the gas fired stove in the library instead!

Upstairs you'll find two spacious bedrooms, the large laundry room, powder room, and a full bathroom with an oversized vanity. The impressive primary bedroom offers cathedral ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling bay window with a cedar-lined storage bench, an equally impressive walk-in-closet, and a luxury primary bathroom, complete with a natural stone wall, large whirlpool tub accented with designer tile, and a spacious pair of oversized vanities.

The exposed fully finished basement with outdoor patio access presents a sizable lower-level living room, office, which could easily be used as a fourth bedroom, and a spacious half bath / craft room. Purposely designed to have a closet in every room in the house - there is no lack of storage space.

If that won't suffice, the 2,700 square foot horse barn provides two additional garage bays along with a hay loft, tack room, wash bay, and four horse stalls, thoughtfully appointed with individual electric and plumbing hook-ups at each stall. Guide your horses out the rear sliding door with just a few short steps to the two 1.5 acre fenced pastures, which are complete with their own water and electric hook-ups, along with the extremely well designed crushed gravel riding arena.

The outdoor oasis doesn't end at the 26.1 acres... the property borders state game lands and is surrounded by endless miles of walking/hiking trails, as well as being located within hikable distance to the Middle Creek Wildlife Preserve. This property has been deeply loved and treasured by the owners and it is wildly evident in every square inch of this uncommon beauty!
