Stroll the PA flagstone walkway through a trellis into a small courtyard and take note of the expansive covered front porch. Prior to walking in, turn around and take in the wooded panoramic landscape. Picture yourself sitting on one of the rocking chairs sipping your morning coffee or evening wine while listening to the sounds of songbirds. Now enter to be equally delighted by this bright, open and airy home. Take note of the gleaming hardwood floors that lead throughout and the floating staircase above. To your left you have the perfect size living room that flows through French doors into a four-season sunroom, which is being used as a music room and bar/serving area for festivities.
