Live where the 3rd most important businessman in Pennsylvania lived! Built & owned by the former President/CEO of AMP Incorporated, the owner was the Presidential Appointee to the Advisory Council on U.S. Trade Policy and a member of the Executive Committee of the U.S. Council of International Business. Mr. Hudson had this Colonial-style home custom-built in Laurel Woods for his wife and their 3 sons. Designed the architect Donald K. Royal and built by Ralph Luttrell & Bill Whitlock, it has been updated in 2018 to keep the 20th century charm with clean white trim, new light fixtures, and all new paint. To appreciate the full character and beauty of this unique property, schedule a tour today. A few sneak previews include a secret spiral staircase from the sunroom to the bedroom (also useful during entertaining to grab something inconspicuously upstairs), a Count Rumford fireplace & exposed Chestnut beams from a log cabin, walnut bookcases from the mansion of Vance McCormack (former mayor of Harrisburg), a secure wine cell/safe room with a steel locking door in the basement, an Asian-influenced marble master bathroom, tiles from Mexico, and more... For a full list of upgrades, contact the listing agent. A non-inclusive list: new efficiency HVAC installed in May 2018, new quartz countertops & hardware, subway tile backsplash on wet bar, butler's pantry, and kitchen, new electric breaker panel replaced in May 2018 along with switches, all new paint (including trim), and new white outlet covers. The home has been professionally painted and cleaned. Covered by the Homestead Tax Act (for lower taxes), other features of this magnificent home include geothermal heat, 9-year-old roof, solid cherry cabinets, finished basement w/office, 4 fireplaces (2 wood stove accesses) & 2 chimneys, wood workshop, 2nd floor laundry with drain and tile, flagstone patio, recessed lighting, tall ceilings, and abundant natural light. The mature landscaping includes laurel trees, hollies, and lady slippers (a species of localized orchid). This home is on a corner lot in a caul-de-sac with wonderful neighbors. Come fall in love today!
