This handsome 1980s property has loads of home, inside of and out. But although it’s contemporary on the exterior, inside of is an additional story.
Houses in the upper portion of the Poconos — Pike and Wayne counties — mostly cluster about lakes or streams. Apart from those, the other homes have that backwoods excellent lots of vacationers crave.
It is a very little diverse in Monroe County, the coronary heart of the Poconos and house to its largest municipality (by a hair over Milford), East Stroudsburg. Lots of Monroe County residences are located in subdivisions in the woods that are close sufficient collectively to make them sense more like a giant suburb than the backwoods. Only the existence of parks, mother nature preserves and condition game lands — and the absence of a large town close by — continue to keep much of central Wayne County from resembling central Bucks County.
This Saylorsburg modern day home for sale is situated in 1 of these subdivisions, McMichaels Hillside Terrace in Chestnuthill Township. Its conserving grace, having said that, is that it’s not as densely built as other people in the spot. And that means that at the very least you can faux you’re dwelling in the backwoods.
Specifically if you obtain this handsome contemporary residence, which sits on a 1.09-acre, closely wooded whole lot. Its big front deck and its equally massive rear patio let you commune with the woods that encompass you.
So does the big bay window in its residing home, which also has a skylit vaulted ceiling and a two-story-significant stone hearth. You may well notice as you peruse these photos that it presently (a) doesn’t have a great deal in the way of furnishings (b) and what is there runs far more to the classic than the home by itself does. If you, like me, like your present-day homes to appear truly up to date, you have a good deal of opportunities to whip this just one into condition, as you will see.
The listing agent describes the main flooring as owning an open system, but which is not quite the circumstance. The residing space and the areas for making ready and consuming food stuff are divided by a central wall with doorways at possibly conclude.
The a single on the considerably end of the living area sales opportunities to the official dining area, the one particular completely present-day area in this property. (The dwelling home does appear shut, although. In truth, merely swapping the classic ceiling followers for much more present day-hunting types will do the trick in several rooms in this house.)
Make that “almost entirely present-day,” for among it and the breakfast space at the opposite conclude of this aspect of the major flooring sits a kitchen with really classic cabinetry and trim. The china cupboards with glass doorways also encounter the dining room.
Like the eating area, the breakfast space has a substantial sliding door that opens on to the rear patio.
All 3 of the bedrooms are located on the next floor. The 1 previously mentioned, situated above the dining home and kitchen, has a vaulted ceiling like the a single in the residing home. That appears to be to me like it really should be the primary bed room, but it is the only vacant bedroom in the household.
This a single, situated more than the left-hand facet of the garage, seems like it is working as the principal bed room. Once more, building it present-day is a uncomplicated make a difference of eradicating the crown moldings and putting in a diverse design of ceiling fan.
And when you may well want to hold the stained-glass window in the skylit major toilet, you’d have to exchange just about everything else.
Primarily the chandelier above its jetted tub. (It also has a shower, not revealed in these photos.) The corridor bathtub the other two bedrooms share also has a skylight.
The basement loved ones space has a brick-walled alcove with a wooden stove and sliding doorways that lead out to the entrance property from less than the principal-floor deck.
And in the backyard you will also obtain an desirable little waterfall and pond.
And even if you are really living in a subdivision if you acquire this Saylorsburg present-day home for sale, at least you will be properly away from just about anything that appears to be like a city. You will, on the other hand, be near to open house alongside McMichael Creek just to the southwest of here. Stick to Route 715, which parallels the creek, for a few of miles or so, and get a ideal onto Street T453 and you will discover West Finish Regional Park. You can also go mountaineering in the even nearer Significant Woods Natural Place and searching in the condition game lands a number of miles to the northeast.
So whilst this modern dwelling could be positioned in a subdivision, it most unquestionably is in no suburb.
