This beautiful, secluded and very private setting needed a special home. Off the quiet country road, down the winding drive sits over 7 acres with Perkiomen Creek frontage and within walking distance to the rails to trails. This unique, custom-built cedar-sided home is built in the traditional timber framing techniques using huge beams, chisels, and pegs by Ruben Reihl Construction-An Amish company from Leola Pa. Built to last. An open floor plan with the center, schoolhouse style stairs connecting all 4 levels. 9 ½ foot ceilings. Old-growth 1-inch random width yellow pine flooring.
Every detail was thoughtfully considered in the building of this home. The foyer entrance is laid with handmade 100-year-old brick from the Lansdale Brickyard. The lights are custom tin work by a number of local artisans. The Grand Walk-in Fireplace has a hand-forged Crane. The custom kitchen is built with solid wood dovetailed cabinets, oiled cherry counters, and beadboard sides. An oversized counter with sink. Complete with an antique cookstove with a chimney as well as the more traditional Vented Jenair Electric Stove.
The 2nd and 3rd floors offer a master bedroom complete with a sitting room and a private deck overlooking the Perkiomen Creek and a wonderful tree-filled mountainside. Two other bedrooms with large closets and interesting open loft areas, and a hall bathroom complete the floor. The third floor is a large open loft, it would make a great fourth bedroom, studio, or office.
The finished lower level is walk-out and sunlit. The additional entertaining space centers around a grand fireplace, built with stone from the property. This level also features a full bathroom, bar area with sink, an office area complete with outside access, and a storage/utility room. From the level lower patio doors, there is a charming patio with a rock garden and an area set up for a hot tub.
This stunning Custom home also offers a detached, extra deep 4-bay garage complete with a 2nd story guest suite with a full bath and kitchen. A workshop and a large open lower level with an 11 ½ ft ceiling for cars or tractors.
