If you yearn for the solitude of a mountain house tucked in the woods with its own enormous garage, this home is the answer to your every want. Situated on just under five acres at the end of a cul-de-sac in beautiful Northampton Township, and in an area where estate homes mix with historic farmsteads. The garage is a dream come true for tinkerers and outdoorsman alike and offers a massive garage door that leads into an open space fitted with radiant heat floors, a wood stove, electric, plumbing, and all of the bits and baubles for working on vehicles and machines of all kinds. In fact, this amazing space could even be transformed into an outdoor entertaining space. At the far back side of the garage building, a separate room is currently used to park outdoor vehicles and has a number of additional parking/storage sheds. Going up the long driveway back to the beautiful custom built Zaveta home was constructed using hand-selected reclaimed antique stone, you'll find each room has a familiar and inviting air to it. Extremely efficient Geo-Thermal system!!! Finished-in place wide-plank hardwood floors run throughout most of the home, and allow a natural flow to the home. Past the living room and the stairs to the finished lower level, a generous family room at the rear of the house is blessed with verdant views of the deep yard, pond, and back patio and deck. Here, a large reclaimed stone hearth has been finished with an eye to the past and includes a traditional iron pot hook and hewn lumber mantle. Handsome built-in bookcases allow you to showcase your library and pictures, while extra deep cabinets aside the fireplace provide a place for out-of-sight storage. Through the French door, step on to the brick patio or the composite deck, both ideal places for al fresco dining, relaxing, and entertaining. Through the family room, find a well-appointed renovated kitchen with high-end granite countertops and linen colored cabinets. Sit by the large bay window in the breakfast room, or host in the well-appointed dining room, which is separated from the kitchen by a pocket door and brings to life the charm of centuries bygone with elegant built-in corner cabinets and deep trim. The vestibule beyond the kitchen offers a powder room, laundry room, doors to both the back brick patio and the front porch, a second set of basement stairs, garage access, and a set of back stairs to the upper level. Upstairs, find walk-in storage above the garage as well as a single bedroom, ideally utilized as a quiet, tucked-away home office that can be closed off from the remaining bedrooms by a hall door. This opens opportunities for an in-law or au pair room, home business, or separate guest quarters. Down the hallway, three generous bedrooms share a refreshed hall bath, and a spacious main bedroom suite offers a redone private bath with dressing room area. The finished, walkout lower level is great for entertaining or as a play room and is complemented by a separate, unfinished area that houses storage, utilities, and a home workshop. Stepping outside brings you to the large, deep yard full of possibility: gravel walk beyond the home's brick patio and deck areas winds around a breathtaking pond, which is fitted with an aerator fountain, small rock waterfall, and views of the dense tree line behind it. If you hate to leave the fun of your mountain trips behind, you'll never have to here - with almost five acres of privacy and woods, you can ride dirt bikes, quads, and more and live every day like it's a vacation. Desirable Council Rock School District, close to amenities, shopping, dining and more, but unwind in the woods, with adventure, friends, and private land.
