Nestled on a gorgeously manicured lot amid 10 secluded hilltop acres, this five-bedroom, 12,000+ sq-ft architectural masterpiece was lovingly designed by acclaimed architect Don Klinger to provide its owners supreme comfort and functionality while offering breathtaking views of the Susquehanna River Valley from nearly every room. With amenities too many to list (a sampling would include the five ensuite full baths plus four additional half-baths, the six fireplaces, and the 16,000-gallon outdoor koi pond with cascading waterfall), Hawkridge Estate takes mountain-side luxury living to a new level.
Situated at the end of a private, wooded drive within a gated community, the mansion features an all-natural stone façade and grey slate roof, with a spacious circular driveway and a broad double garage cleverly hidden to the side. The lofty entrance portico guides visitors into a stately hand-chiseled limestone foyer adorned with shimmering chandeliers and a sweeping, wooden grand staircase that curls upward to the second-floor bedrooms and a luxurious executive office suite.
Warm, sophisticated opulence characterizes every room of this three-story home, from the Great Room’s massive 24’-high beams and 1800-lb, no-seam rug imported from Thailand, to the elaborately hand carved millwork of the formal dining room. The expansive chef-quality kitchen features 200-year-old white oak floors, two-tiered solid granite counters, more than ample cabinet space, and a walk-in pantry. The regal owner’s retreat includes oversized closets and a jacuzzi surrounded by stained-glass windows. Hand-painted decorative tray ceilings throughout the house highlight natural motifs of plants, florals, and wildlife, elegantly complementing the house’s soothing earth-tone palette and Country French interior theme. The result is a retreat that is both luxuriously comfortable and hospitality ready.
