Spacious, upgraded split-level with in-law suite! Nestled on the south side of historic Sharp Mountain is this large, 3,000-sq.-ft. custom split level with 2.2 scenic, rambling acres of a hunting, hiking and exploring experience for the outdoorsman, plus a breath of fresh air for the person who enjoys breathing space. One of the house's most attractive aspects is an impressive, double door main entrance that leads to a tile-floor foyer, preparing you to pass beneath a triangular arch leading to a sprawling, tile-floor family room, which has a Gibraltar wood-coal combination stove insert for those special nights when you want to toast your toes to the warmth of soothing embers. The main kitchen includes stainless steel stove and dishwasher, and a custom oak butcher block, pub-height, table seating six. The clever design includes storage beneath the table, a feature you simply won't find anyplace else. From there, step through the Andersen sliding doors that lead to the rear deck and outside entertainment area.Inside, the oak stairway continues to the upper level of bedrooms and bath, complete with an economical stairwell floor register that allows heated air to circulate - an 1800s design concept that worked great back then and still makes sense today. The house was treated to new Harvey vinyl replacement windows, plus a new roof with architectural shingles. Other upgrades include a two-level, cedar rear deck protected by Restore finish, a custom canopy, a separate pergola crowning a relaxing porch swing, and a 24-ft. propane-heated, above-ground pool - complete with new liner - where you can relax and enjoy nature's canvas of vibrant oak, maple, and evergreen trees, along with mountain laurel. The home's double basement allows for ample storage. Keep in mind, the property is located within Tamaqua Area School District where local high school graduates receive a free college degree through a special bequest from a local industrialist - one of the only such programs in the country. It's no secret the house was built among verdant woods that include songbirds, deer and small game. In fact, the locale has been a popular hunting area since the early 1700s. Why is this so? Well, in part, it's because the house is situated just steps away from what was the legendary Catawissa Trail. The Indian trail linked Port Clinton, McKeansburg, Tuscarora, Mahanoy City and other communities, ending at Catawissa in Columbia County. And there's more!!!!!! Call now
