This circa 1860 Historic Mechanicsburg property was home to prominent Mechanicsburg individuals such as James & Margaret Ralston (whose signature appears on a wall in the rear carriage house/garage); Samuel and Emma Miller; and Guy & Ada Eberly (grandson of the founder of Eberly Lumber Co. still operational in Mechanicsburg).
Boasting over 5,400 square feet of living space, the historic mansion has been tastefully updated and sensitively restored. Its modern amenities coalesce with classic-period charm and character creating a spectacular living experience.
Gleaming wood floors grace the majority of the home. Several of the rooms are accented with traditional and dental crown moldings. The Grand Living Room with over 10’ ceilings, original pocket window shutters, gorgeous French and beveled glass doors, and fireplace is ideal for entertaining. A convenient 1st floor Laundry Room and Powder Room were recent additions providing modern day conveniences expected in a home of this caliber.
The generously sized Kitchen with granite counters, original Butler’s Pantry (which is an understatement!), and handsome bricked fireplace creates the heart of the home, where guest always tend to gather.
The Dining Room is perfectly centered between the Kitchen and Grand Living & Great Rooms. Should you decide to entertain outdoors, the screened-in patio is easily accessible and allows enjoyment of the surrounding gardens.
The expected amenities continue on the second floor, where the owner can retreat to a 2-room Master suite with ½ bath and three additional nicely-sized bedrooms; remodeled bath with claw foot tub & separate shower; and a centrally-located bright open, den/library/sitting area for all to enjoy.
Rounding off this one-of-a-kind home is a third floor, 2 Bedroom, Bath, Kitchen and Living Room suite for extended guests or in-law quarters. This space could be leased to offset the mortgage.
The basement offers abundant storage, old family safe, and loads of other “nooks & crannies” indicative of period mansions.
The original carriage house serves as the two-car garage with loft.
The unassuming aire & easy “livability” of this home, distinguish it from more ostentatious homes of similar value. If you’ve ever desired to live in an older home, with modern conveniences and amenities, where the work has been done for you – this is the place! And, it's priced below appraised value! Call Gary J.
