Once part of a 90-acre estate known on a 1756 deed as "Bordaria" (Latin for "small estate"), Wydnor Hall is a historic eastern Pennsylvania landmark that was rescued from near oblivion 20 years ago by the current owner. Transformed from a decrepit 4-apartment hull back to its previous grandeur as a grand manor house, it has been run successfully as a European-style B&B for many years. It is now being offered for sale for the first time since its resurrection (see also MLS 6861224). Reflecting its proud origins, the property is full of the rich architectural detail typical of Pennsylvania Georgian style, with vintage moldings, sweeping stair case with traditional newel post and railing, ultra-high ceilings, solid plaster walls, original wood floors, and handsome fireplaces. The front entry welcomes visitors through a half-glass door, sidelights, and transom into the classic foyer. Flanking the foyer, the formal living and dining rooms are elegantly proportioned, each with its own fireplace. An enchanting tiled sunroom off the kitchen overlooks the patio, plantings, & sweep of lawn. The large kitchen area offers both a butler pantry as well as a cooking area with commercial appliances, plus a small office and half bath. Cozy owner's quarters above include a separate bedroom, bath, and living room/office. Upstairs, four generous bedroom suites are gently illuminated by multiple large windows, and have their own en suite full baths. Separate from the manor house is whimsical "Bordaria Cottage," reminiscent of a caretaker's lodge, offering additional quarters including living room with stone wall accents, bedroom with a wall of windows, beverage bar, and stunning bath with spa-like artisan tile. A five-car detached garage provides shelter for plenty of vehicles and other equipment. Unique among historic homes of this size and vintage is the full array of modern utilities and mechanicals -- public water and sewer, natural gas heat, and central air conditioning. A marvelous opportunity to own a piece of Lower Saucon history either as a personal residence or continuing as an area bed & breakfast!
