Elevate your lifestyle to any combination of your whims and dreams. Beginning with the location less than 2 hrs. from Manhattan or 3 hrs. from Philadelphia, this property near Towanda, PA is located at the north east edge of the Allegheny Mountains. The home was carefully placed to take advantage of the views at daybreak to the east, spectacular sunsets to the west, rolling hills, pastures and mountains north and south. Four elevated, wide planked decks afford plenty of space for lounges and tables to enjoy your morning coffee or evening beverage. Once the sun sets and the moon rises, the stars appear everywhere without the interference of artificial light. 6,100 SF of interior space on 2 full levels with floor plans that can be changed to meet your needs. Currently the master bedroom and bath are on the entrance level and a very large lower level has been divided into a spacious living entertainment area and bedroom. There is a loft level overlooking the 2 story family room which could be used as a third bedroom. The home was constructed with lumber harvested from the surrounding property and the 2 massive fire places were built with stones selected and placed by the current owner. Back when living off the grid wasn't a coined phrase, 2 wood burning furnaces were built to heat the home during the winter months with wood from the surrounding 30 acres, but for the more modern day world, a natural gas furnace has also been installed. A large custom kitchen with granite counter tops provides the most ambitious cook(s) plenty of space to lay out a lavish spread, yet with the wide open floor plan, you are always in the company of your guests while entertaining. The 2 story family room faces east with a wall of floor to ceiling Pella windows giving you the feeling that there are no boundaries to your living space. Outdoors, there is a delightful mix of 10 acres of mowed & level grounds ideal fro x-country skiing, a pond, rolling acres of pine trees on the north side and heavily wood walking trails on the west edge of the property. Turkeys, migratory birds & deer are daily visitors. Winter down-hill skiiers will find Greek Peak in NY or Elk Mountain in PA about an hour away. NY's Cayuga Lake is an hour away as is Cornell University and Ithaca College with vibrant cultural & intellectual opportunities. A visit to this beautiful home is essential to appreciate the climate of silence and scenery. Start curating your lifestyle now.
