Kestrel Ridge: A home of extraordinary quality and space sits very privately on a hillside outside of the village of Pottersville in Chester Township, enjoying the passive recreation benefits of neighboring Hacklebarney Park. A gated entry way leads to a courtyard edged by a waterfall and maturely landscaped grounds that are entirely fenced. The meticulously crafted stone and brick exterior and handsome hand-carved wood features inside lend a European hunting manor style to the home. Architectural blueprints show over 11,000 square feet of space on three levels. Throughout the interior, expansive rooms with high ceilings are brightened with walls of...windows providing views of the private grounds and hillsides beyond. An impressive two-story entry hall opens to an equally inspiring great room with a baronial stone fireplace. Overlooking each of these rooms, and accessed by a gracious staircase, is a significant landing with domed ceiling crowning the entry area. Occupying one entire end of the first floor, the primary bedroom suite includes a sitting room/office; bedroom with fireplace; exercise room; spacious double closet rooms and double full baths with etched glass shower doors. A library/office nearby is highlighted by a stone fireplace wall. The dining room and kitchen with double islands are designed for entertaining on a generous scale with amenities for a master chef. An adjoining octagonal breakfast room with fireplace overlooks and adjoins the sprawling stone terrace spanning the back of the home, providing endless space to dine al fresco. Off the kitchen hall, a comfortable den with fireplace is the perfect place to relax. The second floor is dedicated to three individually-designed secondary bedrooms, two with fireplaces and all with en suite baths. A laundry on this level is matched by the main laundry on the first floor. Off the back stairs a charming three-room apartment was custom-designed to provide notably comfortable space and independent living accommodations. A spectacular lower level is largely dedicated to entertainment and recreation with an award-winning 22-seat home theater; beguiling woodland-themed bar area; a family/media room with fireplace; and a game room. Behind beautifully carved wooden doors, a wine cellar stands ready for memorable gatherings. A hallway leads to a guest suite, utility and storage rooms and ultimately to a sizeable hobby/wrapping room that provides quiet creative space. Completing the resort-like facilities at Kestrel Ridge: the sequestered pool complex which features a stunning free-form gunite pool with waterfall and ample stone terrace; a stone pool house with kitchen, dining area, laundry, separate bathroom and sauna; and an outdoor barbecue area. The quality of the custom construction is equaled only by that of the accommodations that provide a unique place to thrive.
