Welcome to the Eisenhart Estate! Just beyond the gated entry at the bottom of the property, you will find a glorious 1920's stone home perched on top of a hill looking over the well-manicured grounds that feature reflection ponds, gardens, arbors, a swimming pool and bank barn with two stalls for your horses and a fenced pasture. When you enter the home, and walk on the marble floor in the entry, you will recognize true craftsmanship and find delight around every corner. The home exudes stories of the past and a superior care to preserve the original integrity. You will relish in the unique quality of this home, including the bow tie and peg floors, plaster moldings, large scale original crystal chandeliers, original bathroom fixtures and even secret storage areas. One of the most notable features of the home resides in the grand dining area, where you will find hand painted wallpaper that depicts scenes of American History, including the Boston Tea Party, a West Point Graduation and the turn of the Century in Manhattan. This same wallpaper is on the walls in The White House in the Diplomat Room! The home offers modern amenities for livability and entertaining, including 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, large kitchen, lots of spacious closets, air conditioning and many living spaces. Some of the rooms feature beautiful wall coverings, which is a nod to the home's original occupants, the Eisenhart Wallcovering family. The house's exterior features stone and a slate roof. Additionally, a companion three car-garage with carriage doors, sits next to the home. Relax and unwind on the veranda, where you can overlook the in-ground swimming pool and listen to the soothing sounds of the grand fountains in the two front ponds. You will even find history amongst the grounds of the property, featuring 51 paper millstones used as stepping stones between the many gardens. Don't miss your opportunity to own a piece of York County history. Appointments can be made directly with the listing agent to tour the property.
