Cartref Farm is a magnificent 121-acre farm estate located in Newberry Township, York County, half-way between Harrisburg and York, Pennsylvania. A paved drive enters the property to arrive at an attractive 7,000 square foot home. In perfect harmony with its surroundings, the main house overlooks a pond, in-ground swimming pool, historic bank barn, a stream, acres of pastures, and a 1,400 square foot caretaker's house.
FARMSTEAD STYLE WITH 21ST-CENTURY LUXURY - Built in 2012, the main residence has been designed to high standards. The interior is characterized by warm and inviting living spaces with classic architectural elements, such as 10-foot-high ceilings, interior brick, reclaimed oak hardwood flooring, and cherry kitchen cabinetry. The residence offers ample opportunities for grand-scale entertaining indoors and out, on the screened-in porch or outdoor patio that overlooks 10 acres of woodland.
LIVING AND ENTERTAINING SPACES: FARMHOUSE FEEL WITH ELEGANCE - Visitors are welcomed warmly into the home on the covered full brick front porch. Once inside, the brick interior walls bring a sturdy farmhouse feeling. The two-story great room is graced with a floor-to-ceiling native stone fireplace, soffit lighting, large windows overlooking the pastures and woods and expansive space. Adorned with oak hardwood flooring reclaimed from a barn in York County, the great room transitions seamlessly to the double island kitchen. The former is warmed by a wood fireplace, while the latter has large double islands and a walk-in pantry. Complementing the main level is a music room or study with an exquisite ceiling and custom cabinetry, a three season screened-in porch, and a luxurious master suite.
RETREAT TO PRIVATE QUARTERS - The main level includes a laundry room, two powder rooms, and a mud-room with access to a covered porch and oversized three car garage. Upstairs, the spaciousness continues with four bedrooms, each with a full bath, a 5th bedroom/children's study/play room, laundry room, an unfinished bonus room and abundant storage. The lower level basement is unfinished but includes Bilco door access to the outside.
