Brognard Okie, well know for restoring Colonial farm houses to create a sense of sophisticated simplicity. · Built into a hillside, the farmhouse has four levels with multiple entrances on the two lower entertaining floors. Many doors and windows with deep sills flood the house with light. The house's thick walls and hillside placement keep the interior cool in the summer and cozy in the colder months. Special features include the six fireplaces three of which are set in a corner, exposed wooden beams and random width pine pegged floors. · A front to back entrance hall on the second level leads to the entertainment areas and staircases. To one side the living room runs the width of the house with windows on three sides plus a wonderful fireplace and mantel. On the other side are two connecting smaller rooms: a game room with a wet-bar and a library -- each with a corner fireplace and random-width pine pegged floors. · On the lowest level is a delightful dining room with a walk-in fireplace, brick floor and door leading to a sun drenched patio. The adjoining kitchen has brick floors, double stainless steel sink, electric cook top, stainless steel hood, dishwasher, oven and large walk-in pantry. Off the kitchen is a covered breakfast porch with views of the McKaig Nature Preserve · A large landing area complete with built-in bookshelves, built-in linen storage and lots of light greets the visitor to the third level, which has a large master bedroom (21 x 16 feet) complete with exposed beams and a sitting area with a corner fireplace. A lovely fully tiled bathroom with a make-up area completes the master suite. A sunny second bedroom with four windows, fireplace and lovely green patina flooring is found on the other side of the staircase, complete with private bath. On the top or fourth level are two large bedrooms with a hall bathroom. · Additional buildings include a classic Pennsylvania bank barn, which marks the entrance to the fence-lined property. Inside the barn is a small bedroom with bath and an equipment storage area built next to the barn. A separate one-bedroom, one-bath guest cottage is included with the property. The cottage has a skylight in the kitchen, a dining-living room area and two-car garage.
