PRICE REDUCED Welcoming...gracious...refined. This notable estate property is one of a handful of frequently-admired properties, a stone's throw from the prestigious Saucon Valley Country Club. Built to exacting standards, it has proudly stood the test of time and continues to offer outstanding amenities. The timeless design provides exceptional livability and is centered on nearly three acres of former orchard land, with mature hardwoods, flowering gardens, terraces, pool and bucolic vistas. This gracious home is a fine example of the Saucon Valley legacy and every bit as noteworthy as its location. Inside, the layout provides a floor plan that showcases richly-laden woodwork, hardwood floors and mercer tile. Abundant windows along the rear of the home reveal deer, wild turkeys and the occasional red fox. Designed for entertaining, the living and dining rooms both open, through French doors, to a large, central garden room that is the heart of the house. Richly-appointed, the library has a warm and inviting ambiance with a stone fireplace, built-in bookshelves and cabinetry, and rich wood paneling. The gracious kitchen accommodates an experienced chef's talents or a relaxed weekend breakfast, lingering over coffee and a paper. Four bedrooms, 3 baths, a laundry and a master suite and bath complete the second floor. Perfect for a full house when hosting annual holidays and special occasions, there is an additional guest suite with sitting room, bedroom and bath. Finally, the lower level has multipurpose rooms including an exercise room, hobby room, sauna, full bath and cedar and wine closets. A three-car garage provides additional room for cars or hobbies. Nearby is Historic Bethlehem, founded by the Moravians in 1741, where gas lamps light brick walkways in front of outstanding period buildings, delightful dining places and specialty shops.
