Presenting for the first time, a stunning artist’s country home, studios and attached guest apartment on two and a half acres overlooking the Middle Spring trout stream in south central Pennsylvania’s Dutch country, located less than one mile to Shippensburg University, 2 hours to DC, 2.5 hours to Philly and 3.5 hours to NYC. This incredible home was creatively and thoughtfully designed and built by both an internationally known Sculptor and Fabric Designer. The exterior style echoes a New England Saltbox Colonial, while the interior reveals a magnificent Amish built timber frame construction with exposed beams and a modern flair. The home is over 3,700 square feet with six bedrooms and four- and one-half baths on 2.54 acres of heaven. Large stone steps invite you to walk through the front door where you will be impressed by the openness and view of the exposed floor to ceiling timber frames, hand built pegged oak stairwell and walls of windows providing a plethora of natural light. A mobile in the tradition of Alexander Calder, sculpted by owner, graces the expansive 30-foot-high ceiling space overlooking the great room which also features a working antique Florence potbellied cast iron wood stove and view above of the library and loft on the second floor. Next to the great room is a dining room and large industrial kitchen with custom stainless-steel countertops, metal cabinets, peninsula with bar seating, and an island. Walk out onto the private wrap-around deck with brand new flooring, and picture yourself entertaining guests while enjoying the seasonal views of the stream and farm beyond. The first floor continues with a primary suite complete with multiple closets and full bath with separate soaking tub and walk-in shower. A convenient mud room with lavatory and laundry room fits between the kitchen and the two-car garage. Above the attached two car garage is a contemporary studio apartment with cathedral ceiling with a small kitchen, full bath, and private bedroom - perfect for an in-law suite or guests. The second floor of this unique home features a loft area perfectly suited for a home office, a library with reading nook, a second bedroom with an attached full bath, a third standard bedroom, a fourth bedroom featuring a 13’ x 10’ rock climbing wall, and up a spiral staircase is a special bonus third-floor fifth bedroom with a portal window overlooking the lower two floors. Select artwork inside the house could be negotiated if the buyer is interested in parts of the collections. The finished side of the basement level features many creative touches with corrugated metal for play, creating, entertaining and walks out to the backyard patio and includes an outdoor shower. The unfinished side houses utilities and plenty of room for storage. The expansive property showcases many limestone and metal sculptures and includes a 30’ x 60’ studio with three different sets of sliding barn doors, a loading dock and overlooks the stream. A separate 35’ x 45’ studio used for fabric design and Yoga occupies another corner of the property to the front. Both studios are heated with propane for year-round enjoyment. Additionally, there are two more outbuildings for additional studio space or animals. Try your green thumb with the 50’ x 50’ vegetable garden and enjoy the labors of multiple mature fruit trees. The entire property is fenced and gated. Many flowering shrubs and flower beds are located throughout.
