    Description

    This is an absolutely majestic compound offering 100 acres of extremely secluded land adjacent to Hawk Mountain Sanctuary and its protected landscape of 1400 acres on a ridge of the Blue Mountains. The 13,800 s.f. home was designed by the firm of celebrated architect Peter Bohlin- known for, amongst other things, being commissioned to design the homes of both Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, as well as other iconic creations such as Apple stores worldwide. The home's design is both durable and timeless, allowing the retreat to appear as if it is built into the hillside upon stone ruins from another time. A delicate wood structural skeleton is juxtaposed against massive stone forms- providing a total of 6 fireplaces- and much of this is surrounded by glass walls to allow the movement of sunlight and offer truly stunning views of the mountains and valleys. The finest materials and craftsmanship surround you, with every detail of the home having been carefully planned and executed. A detached guest house is available for your visitors, and a 6-car garage ensures that all of your vehicles and outdoor toys have their own place. This is a remarkable opportunity to acquire a truly one-of-a-kind property that is equally adept as either as a main estate or a retreat, with plenty of surrounding land for all of your outdoor recreational interests and the absolute utmost in privacy. Many potential opportunities for how you can enjoy your 100 acres of land. The property has been prominently featured in "Architectural Digest" and other publications, and is located within close proximity to both New York City and Philadelphia, as well as nearby regional airports. Request a very personal and confidential guided tour of this magnificent property, and see for yourself all that it has to offer to you and your guests.
