    Description

    Dont miss this rare opportunity to own a piece of history! Built in 1851 and meticulously restored by the current owners, 2500 Rochelle Drive (known historically as "Rochelle Mansion") offers the the best of both worlds: charm & craftsmanship of a historic home, with the luxury & convenience of modern living, updated with an eye toward minimal maintenance! The circular driveway welcomes you to the sweeping property, with ample parking for you and your guests (attached 2-car garage + detached 2-car garage). More than 40 stunning windows, many still boasting original wavy glass and those on the ground level floor-to-ceiling in height, have all been insulated with custom storm glass by a window preservation specialist. The 3.5-acre property combines expansive lawn, mature landscaping, and wooded, rock-lined paths, anchored by a 400-year-old tulip poplar tree with lightning protection. Rochelles five porches & enormous rear deck (an entertainers dream!) have been rebuilt with carefree Azek & iron railing and surrounded by flagstone patios & walkways, providing views from all sides of stunning sunrises & sunsets. The homes roof, with architectural shingles, its 4-zone heating & cooling systems, and new insulated wide-plank vinyl siding have been added for efficient comfort. Rochelles tall ceilings, sweeping entry staircase, wide mouldings, and large family-oriented spaces offer classic elegance. From the exquisite mural bringing the outdoors into the formal living room, to the original heart-pine floors throughout, to the multiple fireplaces (3 are propane-fueled; many have marble mantels), this home offers so many "wow" rooms that you wont be able to pick a favorite... until you lay eyes on the kitchen. The enormous custom 540-square-foot kitchen features the Elmira Stove Works reproduction "Cooks Delight" oven with 6-burner cooktop, and custom oversized Frigidaire freezer-fridge, and is appointed with new stainless appliances, granite countertops, gleaming white Shaker cabinets with abundant storage, copper farmhouse sink, & open floorplan where twelve can be comfortably seated under the inlaid copper-tile cove ceiling in the eat-in addition, leading to deck through the new double slider. Stairs off the kitchen lead down to family room & bonus room w/ full bath; adjacent staircase leads up to the 1909 addition, with two bedrooms sharing a full bath and adjoined outside by an east-facing porch. This wing offers possibilities as in-law suite or home-based business separated. Back through the kitchen, the conservatory and the dining room (w/ built-in china cabinet & custom mouldings) -- the homes main staircase leads to 4 more bedrooms and 2 more full baths, all with original pine flooring, additional fireplaces, another 2nd floor porch, & custom touches throughout. 2nd-floor master features fireplace and renovated master bath w/ jetted tub. Curving staircase leads to a massive 3rd floor space w/ 2 more bedrooms, a 5th full bath, easy roof/ "Widows Walk" access for incomparable view of property, & new storage under both eaves. (Buyer might consider making this a 2nd master; transform 1 of the 8 bedrooms into a walk-in closet without sacrificing space for family or guests.) In the basement, original fieldstone foundation walls have been polished & repointed and original ceiling beams have been refinished & flanked with dozens of recessed lights -- perfect atmosphere for a large family room with pool & ping pong, or "man cave" with bar & poker table, or additional home office (fully wired for all your technology needs). Adjacent storage leads down to a space believed to have hidden runaway slaves on the Underground Railroad! Rheem tankless water heater for unlimited hot water. Award-winning schools and all the conveniences of Fallston.
