Surrounded by trees on a 2.45 acres in rural Dauphin County, this stately 4,653-square-foot brick home, with multiple chimneys rising above the roofline, looks massive.
Nestled against the one end of the home is an attached two-car garage with triple-dormered roof and an entire semi-private living area with its own set of steps off of the kitchen, a bedroom, full bath and office room.
Imagine the possibilities and potential of the home as one enters through a solid wood front door, inscribed with the owners’ name and the year the home was built, 1975, revealing a foyer with a curved staircase centerpiece.
Off to the sides of the foyer are the living room, with French doors, and the family room, with pocket door entry. Most of the home’s interior is relatively unchanged since the year it was built. The property is ready to shine again after some TLC from its next owner.
The first floor includes original wood floors in most of the rooms, three fireplaces, some rooms with exposed beams in the ceiling, crown molding, chair rails, two sets of sliding doors that open to the full-length backyard brick patio, and a kitchen with functional layout and breakfast nook area next to one of the sliding doors.
The curved staircase with decorative wrought iron railings leads up to the four bedrooms and two full baths, both with double vanities. A large chandelier, hanging at the level of the second floor landing, dominates the space and spills its light all over the area.
The master bedroom includes a fireplace, number four in the home. The fifth is in the walk-out finished lower level.
Both second floor bathrooms appear to be original with sink colors – red in one, pink in the other – that were popular at the time, and a matching pink tub, surrounded by mirrors, in the master bath.
The yard with all of its space has a lot of potential and includes an in-ground pool and a large U-shaped driveway with more than enough room for guests.
The one end of the driveway leads to the detached garage/apartment complete with living room, kitchen, two bedrooms, full bath, and two more fireplaces, bringing the total to seven fireplaces for the entire property.
Located at 130 Hillymede Circle in South Hanover Township, the home is listed at $525,000 by Joy Daniels Real Estate Group.
