This is locally famous architect Elmer Adam's residence restored and upgraded. Built in 1951, this beautiful sandstone structure sits above all the neighborhood with a view that stretches for miles. The 27' of 6' high picture windows face southeast fully capturing the sunrise which bathes the living room, dining room, and kitchen in golden light as shown in 2 of the photos. As it originally served as a business and a residence, this house has 2 wings. The business wing was converted into a second master suite with a walk in closet and a 3 piece en suite. 3 sources provide comfortable and affordable heat: the marble wood-burning fireplace in the living room, the natural gas remote controlled granite fireplace in the kitchen, and the whole house, (including the garage,) natural gas hot water radiant heat which has 4 individually controlled zones. The first level living space floors are completely renovated with custom designed porcelain tile including mosaic tile designs throughout. The gourmet kitchen has: granite counters, a double sink, stainless steel appliances, a dishwasher, 3 ovens, a gas stove top, and a walk in pantry equipped with electrical outlets and a counter for a microwave and other small appliances. With the exception of the large double glazed picture windows, all the windows were replaced with high-grade vinyl windows. The copper and shingle roof was replaced in 2013. The second floor has a carpeted sitting room and a bedroom with extensive attic storage space over both wings. The garden shed, the many stone-lined paths, and the perennials planted throughout the backyard woods hint of its glorious past. The vast organically maintained front yard gives this house its "castle on the hill" appearance. 2 massive Magnolia trees greet the spring with 1000's of flowers and the many large Holly trees greet the winter with countless Holly berries that encourage the many birds to winter-over here. Exeter TWP allows keeping HORSES on this property, there is a barn suitable for horses. Fenced in back yard courtyard. Walking distance to all the schools, parks, shopping, restaurants, and all major highways while being very secluded. 2 parcels are included in this sale. 6+ acres includes the house; 1 + acres has woods including the holly forest.
