    Description

    This handsome Colonial Revival home sits on 3.48 acres of land in the North Tulpehocken Area/Schuylkill Valley School District and is nearly 8,000 sq. ft. in size. It has been said to be the finest example of its style in Berks County. Built in 1925, it features the latest in style for the period. With a more open floor plan than earlier Colonial designs, it is an easy home to move about in. The main floor does not lack the fine elements of the Colonial period. There is plenty of woodwork to go around, such as chair rails, custom trim work, and crown moldings. Hardwood floors abound throughout this home. Many people have called attention to the beauty of the main stairway leading to the 2nd floor. Large windows keep the home light and bright. Entering through the front door brings you into a large gathering room.It extends the full depth of the home, where there are French doors leading to one of the several patios. To the right, you~ll find an ample den/library with fireplace. Beyond that, there is a large living room which is also the full depth of the home. Again, there are French doors- these leading to a sunroom with large glass sliding doors. This side of the home also contains the main open staircase, a powder room, and a small butler~s pantry. Now, going to the left of center, we find an elegant and spacious dining room with 2 ~shell top~ display niches. You could seat lots of family and friends here. Moving on, we find a sizable breakfast room with lots of windows and French doors that lead to patios and the sizable in-ground swimming pool. At this end of the home, you~ll find a sizable butler~s pantry with lots of storage. There is a kitchen and a large laundry area, along with more closets, cabinets, and drawers. Here you~ll find the stairs to the basement and an extra set of stairs to the 2nd and 3rd floors. Now, onto the 2nd floor. At the top of the main stairs, we turn right and go to the 1st master sized bedroom. This also extends the depth of the house and has a door to access the flat roof. Off of this room, is a full bathroom and a separate dressing room with lots of cupboards, drawers, and closets. Next, you~ll find another nice sized bedroom and a Jack and Jill bathroom leading to still another bedroom of nice size. The last bedroom on the floor is master size and is paneled in pickwick pine. It also includes a full bathroom. It~s a handsome room which most recently was used as an office. As we walk down the hall, there is a cedar closet, a closet with drawers and cabinets, a large linen closet, and a cleaning closet with a fancy slop-sink. By now you~ve noticed the handsome arch top doors at either end of the hall. Now, to the 3rd floor. Here are 3 more reasonably sized bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a wall long closet. There is also access to the roof. The basement is full height and quite usable. It consists of 5 rooms. The most interesting is the ~bomb shelter~ or safe room. This is a solid concrete space with a bank vault style door, dressing rooms, bathroom, and a generator. Two smaller rooms were used as craft rooms. The basement also has its own door to the outside. The exterior has its own points of interest, beginning with the circular driveway. There is ample parking and a 3-car garage. There is a good sized fenced in swimming pool, a reflecting pool, and a lawn that extends to the Berkshire Country Club Golf Course. The property is well shielded by mature trees on both sides, so you~ll have lots of privacy and play space. Now, as for that acreage. The 3.48 acre property consists of lot 10 and 12 of the original Greenfields subdivision. The house sits on lot 10 (1.58 aces). The vacant lot, lot 12 (1.87 aces), can be purchased separately (approval pending). The house and property need a good amount of repair (plaster repair, MEP work, radiators, etc.), and some fresh ideas. Schedule your showing today, and imagine the possibilities of making this house a grand home once again.~
