The genesis of Turtle Hill started as a country log home that has, over the years, grown through sophisticated and stylish additions into a formidable estate property. The country drive delivers you to the circular entrance to Turtle Hill. Your eye is captivated by the sumptuous landscaping, large slabs of Bluestone hardscaping and perfectly positioned landscape lighting. The vaulted foyer, with powder room, divides the house between the new additions and the updated original home. The large eat-in kitchen is newly finished with stainless steel appliances, 2 Sub-Zero wine coolers, granite/quartz counter tops and French limestone floors. The kitchen leads into a grand, banquet-sized vaulted dining room with stone fireplace, French doors and a breathtaking chandelier. This section of the home has four family or guest bedrooms that are reminiscent of rooms you see in the Ralph Lauren flagship store...warm, inviting and comfortable. There is also a loft area that can act as an office, reading room or "instant" guest room. The finished basement boasts a workout area, game room and abundant cabinet storage. The main "Great Room" is anchored by a large woodburning fireplace and walls of French doors that open to a sizeable Bluestone terrace that can be a gathering place for cocktails or al fresco dining. Whether you are sitting in the Great Room or on the terrace, you are enveloped by layer after layer of mature and artfully designed landscaping. Above the Great Room is the master suite. The bed chamber is vaulted and enjoys the view of an elegant fireplace and windows that bathe the room in natural light and views of the property. The master bath is grand in size and contains a walk-in shower, jetted tub, waterworks fixtures and Walker-Zanger marble flooring. A short stroll along a landscaped path leads to the pool and pool house. The pool, recently refurbished, has a built-in lounge area that is refreshing while you read the latest summer romance. A cozy seating area nearby overlooks a stone fire pit. The pool cabana area contains a working kitchen for lunch or evening meal preparation, an aesthetically pleasing full bath inside with glass tile, and a laundry room. The pool house extends into a large screened-in patio suited for lounging and dining. The estate, sited on 18 plus Tinicum acres in two separate tax parcels and large stocked pond, has been designed with entertaining in mind.
