Home Home on the Range


Breathtaking views punctuate this home on the range

This home on the range is where you and your family can play on nearly 18 acres of land! Listed  and owned by PA Real Estate brokers  Cheryl and Michael Pecora of M.S Pecora for $489,900 this home and surrounding buildings are well worth your while! Sure the interstates are only a mile away and you can be at a resort in the Poconos in 20 minutes, but why would you want to be anywhere else when you have a  sprawling property that is cleverly laid out to fulfill all of your wants and dreams.

One of the dozens of lovely features this home has is security. Everything from the burglar/fire alarm to the video surveillance ensures that no one except your many guests  make it down the 1400 foot driveway without you knowing. The circular driveway snakes between the professionally landscaped front, side, and backyards between the main house, barn/garage, and A-frame guest house. After parking in the main home’s oversized garage, and entering through the front door you are warmly greeted by a pegged hardwood foyer that offers only a glimpse of all the space within. Every window of this home has a view and real brick walls accentuate throughout. To the right is a 10.10×12.2 room that is perfect as a home office, as long as the view doesn’t distract you from work, or a fourth bedroom.

                Continuing right is the 20×13 family room that has a real brick gas insert fireplace, tile flooring and access to the California room.  A powder room is also in the immediate vicinity for the convenience of guests and family members alike. To your left and up a few stairs is the 20×13.5 living room that has a picturesque view of the surrounding property. To the right of the stairs is the 14.4×11.5 dining room with an authentic Dutch oven fireplace that is also visible from the dinette/kitchen.

                Featuring solid cherry cabinetry, the 20×12 kitchen also has French doors that take you to the covered deck. A smooth top range, cabinets galore, recessed lighting, built-in pantry, Lazy Susan,dishwasher, and double oven make this kitchen ideal for entertaining, family get-togethers, holidays and everyday living! To the right of the kitchen is the tiled laundry room with oak cabinetry. Heading upstairs are three more bedrooms measuring 10×11,12×10, and 13×15 respectively.  Just outside of the bedrooms is a linen closet and a full bathroom that serves this level of the home. If you are lucky enough to call the 13×15 master bedroom yours, a walk-in closet, French doors leading to a balcony and a tile floored bathroom with cherry cabinetry is all yours!  The fully finished basement has a mini-fridge, microwave, sink and plenty of space left over for a pool table and whatever you wish! A storage area is also available in this portion of the home.

                The two car attached garage has a tray ceiling, carpeted area for exercise equipment, workshop space and room left over for your motor vehicles.

                Sure the house is spacious, but the best is yet to come. The California room is accessible from various parts of the home and who doesn’t like a hot  tub to relax in after a hard day at work? The immediate backyard area of the home has a paver sidewalk, patio area for sunbathing, and an ornamental garden.  Headed across the driveway is the garage/barn that has a mansard roof. This building is perfect for car or equine enthusiasts alike! There is a fully equipped kitchenette, bathroom with a shower and vanity, and a storage area upstairs.  The a-frame guest cottage has a 12×24 deck with outlets. As soon as you enter you are immediately drawn to the two-story fireplace and exposed beam accents. One bedroom,bathroom, stackable laundry room and the kitchen along with a large living area are on the first level. The second level has a loft for a second bedroom.

                But wait there’s more! Between the guest cottage and the main house is a pavilion with a built-in charcoal grill and fireplace with a picnic area.

                Nearly 18 acres of land to hunt, entertain , house and ride horses and live in tranquility: what more could anyone ask for?


About Trish Reznick

Writer. Pessimistic optimist. News junkie. I write real estate advertising pieces, but my heart's in music journalism. To make the real estate biz more exciting I put music references in to a good percentage of my writings. I guess you could call me a liberal. I have an extensive record collection and I prefer them over MP3s any day... unless that particular day I plan on leaving my apartment. Considering I'm an extrovert, that is quite frequently. I'm a scorpio...which is a nice way of saying I have intense mood swings... I thought that was just called being a chick.
