A private estate on 132 +/- acres
This property boasts unique features offering the utmost privacy, perched almost 800 feet above the Susquehanna River. It offers stunning 360-degree views of the surrounding five counties. Roundtop Lane has a rich history; today, it's accessible via a gated entrance. As you drive through, you'll pass by private ponds and lots of wildlife until you reach the summit of Roundtop, where you'll find the sprawling main house.
The original house was constructed with 27-inch-thick solid stone walls and steel and concrete floors between each level. In the 1990s, the current owner built both wings east and west of the main house, maintaining the same construction quality as the original structure, including slate roofing with copper spouting and gutters. These design elements are evident in all the other structures on the property.
You can use the stairs or elevator between floors inside the main house. On the first floor, you can relax in the open great room with exposed wooden beams, two fireplaces, and a wall of windows overlooking Lancaster County. At the end of the great room, there's a warm and inviting sunroom where you can enjoy watching winter sunsets. The indoor pool at the other end of the house provides year-round access to swimming while taking in the views. The pool features an ozone filtration system that provides a chemical-free odor of a pool inside your home. The pool area also has standalone humidity and climate control. The pool is heated, along with the stone floor around it.
You can access a full guest suite from the ground floor with a full bathroom. There's also a large walk-in cooler for your goodies or fine beverages. On your way up to the top floor, you'll have access to five more bedrooms, including an owner's suite with a complete kitchenette, sitting room, and two bathrooms. Alternatively, you could walk onto your private balcony to enjoy the sunrise. Once you arrive at the top floor, you can enjoy 360-degree unmatched views from your private climate-controlled conservatory.
You'll pass a serene koi pond as you leave the main house and drive down the lane. After rounding the corner, you'll find yourself at the outdoor pool and pool house with all the amenities. The 24x80 pool provides ample space for you to enjoy total privacy. The pool house features a kitchenette with an island, open vaulted ceilings with an open timber frame, and a floor-to-ceiling stone and brick fireplace. You can gaze beyond the pool and up the slate stairs to the open yard, perfect for outdoor games and activities. The owner previously used this area to park his private aircraft. Electrical wiring is in place and can be restored to illuminate night flying.
The guest cottage boasts tall, vaulted ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, and reclaimed barn wood floors. You can enjoy the view of a private pond from the cantilevered deck or hear the babbling spring from your private screened porch. The cottage also has a delightful kitchenette, pantry, and extra built-in freezer. The full bathroom features an open-concept tile walk-in shower. Upstairs, there's a loft with a powder room and great views of the pond.
The property is complete with a place for your toys. The barn is entirely built and wrapped with cedar and slate and has a cupola to allow light into the second-floor studio. The barn can accommodate 8-plus vehicles and has full HVAC systems, a full bath, a powder room, and a washer and dryer.
All structures have separate backup power generators to ensure you'll never be without power. For more specific details about utility information for each structure, please look at the features sheet provided.
