Placed on a 1 acre site, this home is uniquely situated to take advantage of nature. The living space looks over the Schuylkill River Valley and distant vista of the Schuylkill Valley Nature Center. On the north side,find access to 30 miles of Bridlewild trails. Driving toward the lower part of Monk Road, the home is a 2 level contemporary. Pull into the masonry paver driveway to see exposed stone walls, cedar siding and oversized two car garage. The front entrance is surrounded by raised planting bed, if you are lucky, you'll see hummingbirds. On entering the home on the upper level there are expansive glass windows and doors,exposed stone walls and cathedral ceiling. This level is surrounded by a deck on three sides. This upper level creates an atmosphere of treetop living as a result. An open floor plan allows you to see yourself in the 42ft long living room,sitting in front of the wood burning fireplace while watching hawks migrate above the river. This level contains a recently renovated kitchen with granite counters, two sinks, a beverage center and a double wall oven. There is an eating area that opens to the largest part of the deck for alfresco dining. This area can be covered with a 20x30ft tent for the party of your dreams. The dining room is placed between the kitchen and the side of the Living Room. It opens to 2 areas of the deck through glass windows and doors. Move to the other side of the Living Room to see the study that can be flexed to act as a bedroom with a full bath attached. Next, move to the master bedroom with extensive closets, windows and its own wood burning fireplace. The master suite has a dressing room, many closets and a full bath. The upper level is remarkable for Brazilian Teak Hardwood floors. There is also a powder room.
