    Description

    Unparalleled English grandeur in the Poconos. This flawless example of 1920's Tudor Revival architecture is breathtaking from the first glance of gently patterned brick, cream stucco accents, marvelous half-timbering, the flawlessly maintained slate roof and tall, conical chimney pots offering a dramatic exterior conjuring both English cottages and expansive country homes. From the terra cotta tiled, covered front porch, you enter through the original plank door, and are greeted by a warm foyer and expansive entry hall. The hall gives access to a large formal living room and dining room, which feature entry into the sun porch via the homes original double French doors. The hall and dining room offer chandeliers and sconces original to the home. The main level of the home boasts two stairs to the second level, flawless original hardwood floors, and a cozy library. The new, exquisite kitchen is a true gem. Granite counters, stainless appliances, double wall oven, wine fridge, extensive custom cherry cabinets, and a large center island. Finishing off the first level is a morning room with original cherry wood wall and ceiling accents, with a charming bay window ideal for your morning coffee. Accessing the second level from either of the two staircases offers you an array of four large bedrooms, flooded with light from the large, newer windows that were installed throughout the home. Each bedroom possesses its own unique character, but uniform is original full-length bevel edge mirrors inside each closet door, and original glass knobs and fixtures. A unique feature to the home is the Linen Room which offers a wall of original wood storage cabinetry. The bathrooms are both stunning, as well. The master en suite features marble tile, a whirlpool soaking tub, glass shower, and 24 karat gold plate fixtures. The second full bath presents with vintage charm of a freestanding tub with brass fixtures suspending the shower rail and curtain, and also features a bidet. The third level of the home, using the wide dormers to capture every view and beam of sunlight, presents an expansive space for a multitude of uses. The third level also boasts a seventy-five square foot cedar closet. A separate room at the front of the house provides the chance for a private space on the upper level and access to the homes fourth-story attic. Not to be outdone by the upper levels of the home, the basement is remarkable. Again, accessed by two possible staircases form the main level, the lowest level of the home features a large access hallway giving way to a half bath, walk-in closet, and family room with a large wood burning fireplace. Additional rooms are the large laundry room with built-in folding counter, a utility room, and multi-purpose space with cabinet-lined walls and the terminus for the home's laundry chute, accessed from the first, second, and third floors of the home. However, this levels standout is the bar. Surrounded by rich woodgrain, including the gently coffered ceiling, you are ensconced in the home's legendary history of the prohibition era bootlegger who built this gem. The wet bar features a tap system and room for a keg, as well as ample storage space in the partially mirrored back bar. Rounding out the property is the oversized, two-car detached garage which features a coal-burning stove, and both basement and attic for storage.
