Bent Creek home built to host family and friends

Includes finished basement with theater room, bar, golf simulator and more

The stately stone-and-stucco home on a quiet cul-de-sac in Bent Creek has plenty of appealing features for a discerning buyer, from its Yorktowne Cabinetry custom kitchen to its Brazilian cherry hardwood floors.
But the real appeal of this home at 7 Shadewood Place is the many opportunities it offers to enjoy time spent with family and friends.
Now that opportunity is available to the right buyer. Lusk & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty is handling the sale.
With more than 5,000 square feet of living space above ground, an open floor plan and a spacious outdoor living area, there’s plenty of room to entertain.
But when it comes to some of the most outstanding features of the home, the owner points straight to the basement. “It’s got to be the best basement in Lancaster County,” he says.
One look and you can see why. The product of a custom remodeling project by Renovations by Garman, the basement’s more than 3,000 square feet of living space includes a large bar with eating area, a family room with two-sided gas fireplace, a theater room, fitness room and, the piece de resistance: a custom golf simulator room.
The perfect complement for a home in a gated golf community, the simulator is on par with any rent-by-the-hour commercial versions — right down to the feel of real turf.
With all the basement has to offer, one might never need to go upstairs, but there are plenty of places to enjoy family and friends on the main floor as well. A two-story family room with gas fireplace is full of natural light, thanks to three large second-floor windows and a triple set of French doors leading to a spacious backyard patio.
A recessed second-story niche, framed by columns, overlooks the family room and offers the perfect spot to display a favorite piece of artwork.
The first floor also includes a formal dining room with tray ceiling and wainscoting and an office with tray ceiling.
For times when you need an escape, the first-floor master suite is an oasis in itself, featuring a tray ceiling with downlighting, gas fireplace, and spa-like bath with a deep soaking tub and walk-in shower. There’s even a wet bar and sink, so you never have to leave the room to have your first cup of coffee.
Upstairs, four more bedrooms each have their own private bath.
An additional room could also be converted to a bedroom. There are also six full baths.
The home sits on over an acre of land, with a tree line that creates total privacy. The large backyard is great for kids and could easily accommodate a swimming pool, too.
With a total of 8,300 square feet of living space, 7 Shadewood Place is priced at $1,495,000.
The home is in the Hempfield School District. Interested pre-approved buyers should contact Anne Lusk at 271-9339 or 291-9101 for an appointment.
