R.L. Hershey custom home offers open 2-story plan with spectacular views
From the twin turrets flanking a storybook balcony to the grand front staircase, the stone and stucco home at 17 Hershey Lane in Farview Farm Estates is anything but ordinary.
The custom two-story home built by R.L Hershey Custom Homes in this prestigious Conestoga Township development is a dream home waiting for its owner.
Listing agent for the property is Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Homesale Realty — The Marilyn Berger Team.
“It’s truly one of a kind,” says Ian Long, marketing consultant for The Marilyn Berger Team. “It’s a custom build from top to bottom. It’s going to look and feel like no other home.”
The 4,600-square-foot, five-bedroom, five-bath home sits on 2.3 acres just off Long Lane – close enough to major routes for convenience, yet removed enough to offer a sense of peaceful seclusion.
The home takes the open floor plan concept to a new level, with a sweeping second-floor horseshoe balcony that overlooks an impressive two-story great room featuring a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace.
The adjoining gourmet kitchen includes an oversized island with farmhouse sink and glass-front cabinetry, a wet/dry bar and a dual-temperature wine refrigerator, “so you can keep your whites and reds separated at different temperatures,” Long notes. There is also a walk-in pantry.
The huge first-floor master suite features a gas fireplace and a luxurious bathroom with walk-in tile shower, soaking tub and dual vessel sinks.
Completing the first floor is a formal dining room, parlor/study, second bedroom, laundry room and mudroom.
Dual first-floor bay windows, along with French doors leading from the great room to an outdoor patio, provide copious natural light and magnificent views.
Upstairs the turrets are home to two bedrooms, each with beautiful bay windows overlooking the front yard. A third bedroom, with its own full bath, faces the backyard. An additional room could be used as a media room, game room, office or sixth bedroom.
“All of the bedrooms come off the angled hallway and immediately look down into that open (great room) space,” Long says. “It creates a really nice inclusive feel, for vision, togetherness, ease and convenience. It’s a great design in that respect.”
The home also includes a three-car garage and a large, unfinished basement. It was recently featured in the Million Dollar Homes video feature on LancasterOnline.
The home is in the Penn Manor School District. To inquire about 17 Hershey Lane, contact The Marilyn Berger Team at 717-291-1228.
