Property Description

Situated on one of the most charming streets in the Lynoak section of Shillington, this superb property might just render you speechless. Words do little justice in describing this one of a kind home. There are few settings more welcoming than 345 Pennsylvania Avenue. As you enter the foyer you will be drawn up the beautiful wide oak stairs to a spacious and well appointed living room highlighted with a full bow window. Other features in this room include cherry hdwd, crown moldings and gorgeous built-ins with interior lighting, creating a perfect frame for the raised hearth stone fireplace. As you turn the corner toward the expansive kitchen and family room, you will be awed by the formal dining room. Of course you will be impressed with the size and design of this room but the wondrous wall of windows providing picturesque views of the western skies will take your breath away! This room is also well appointed with custom cabinetry, lighting, crown moldings & Brazilian cherry hdwd. For those who love to cook and entertain, this incredibly well designed gourmet kitchen is sure to delight. You will never run out of storage space. Every drawer, door and cabinet was designed to make life easy and accessible. The Miele appliance package, the six burner Dacor cook top and a sub zero fridge, along with a stainless steel prep sink make mealtime a pleasure. Other features include cabinet and recessed lighting, Brazilian cherry hdwd, a farmhouse sink and granite countertops. This well designed kitchen opens up to a gorgeous family room and is connected by a breakfast bar with 3 stools, wet bar, service dishwasher and wine fridge. The mulitude of large windows in this room allow you to take in the natural beauty of your private rear yard ( this property backs up to 15+ wooded acres owned by Wyomissing Borough). The corner fireplace makes for cozy winter evenings and the indirect lighting can provide the right mood! Now step outside into your rear yard. Hundreds of hours of architectural drawings and creative genius went in to the design and completion of this magical oasis. The magnificent stone fireplace anchors the expansive patio and sets the tone for 3 seasons of outdoor entertaining. As you sip your morning coffee from the upper deck and soak up the stunning vista, you will wonder if you ever have to plan another vacation away from this idyllic setting. Back inside and upstairs, you will find a primary bedroom suite with a full bath, stand up shower, jacuzzi, double sinks and two walk in closets. A spacious studio/office is situated at the rear of this suite affording you a quiet and private space away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the home. Three more well appointed bedrooms, another full bath and a second floor laundry room complete this upper floor. Another wonderful space to get away from it all is the fantastic martini lounge located in the lower level.
