This colonial style home is located at 3326 Green Acres Drive in Bethlehem, PA and is situated on 4.34 acres. Built in 1998, the home boasts 9,834 square feet of living space with 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. It is listed at $4,950,000.

HERE ARE THE LISTING DETAILS:

Lovingly built with an artistic eye and a reverence for classic design elements, this breathtaking home takes its character from 200-year old farmhouses that have been added on to as time demanded. Tucked away on a private road, the picturesque acreage overlooks the 13th fairway of Saucon Valley Country Club’s Weyhill Golf Course. One’s entrance is through pristine white gates, along a circular drive, all leading to a classic colonial of stone, brick and wood, equally reminiscent of entry to an English Manor home as a traditional Bucks County gentleman’s estate.

Inside, these charms are compounded, as each turn reveals delightful architectural details in a warm and inviting ambiance. Fine materials and craftsmanship bespeak quality without compromise, while every element in design and execution is characterized by an understated elegance one would expect. Effortlessly accommodating entertaining on a grand scale, the large entry foyer is the heart of the home, conveniently opening to the casual family areas in the north wing, as well as the more formal rooms, with polished and elegant interiors.

Throughout, the rooms are bathed in light through oversized windows, interior and exterior transoms, skylights and an array of porches and verandahs accessing the private acreage and overlooking 700 feet of fairway. Adding to the farmhouse charm are interior walls with rough plaster finishes, Dutch doors, cast plaster chair rail, beaded board and raised panel wainscoting, reclaimed materials such as chestnut barn beams, as well as skilled reproduction millwork and antiqued brick walls in Flemish bond.

Befitting the needs of today’s family without sacrificing luxury, there are rooms for every need or hobby, designed for large or small family gatherings. There are seven fireplaces, five bedrooms, two offices, two kitchens, a three-season sunroom, family room, lower level game room, exercise room, virtual golf room and wine cellar.

    It’s quaint, in an Amish kind of way. Not bad, but completely not my style. Why is the flag at half-staff?

    I like it. Even though it’s relatively new, the builders/owners did achieve the feat of making it look as if it has been expanded over time. I love fieldstone houses, but it’s nice that this one isn’t only stone. The rooms look well-proportioned, and I love the gym in what looks like a very old stone room. The interior is not my style, but it looks like a very comfortable home (“home” being the key word). The grounds are very nice.

    Great rendition of a stone manor house. Looks like it is 100’s of years old. Really looks great. The interior is nice and homey and not really fashionable. Overall a great home. I just wish it was on more land. If this was on 100 or more acres it would be a great home for a country squire.

    This is classic Pennsylvania farmhouse style, which is fine by me, I’ve always had a soft spot for this kind of home. Like Grrrowler, I appreciate the established look that appears to have been expanded over time…I like when builders are able to accomplish this. The interior is fantastic…endlessly comfortable and comforting, I love it. Not at all impressive or opulent from an entertaining standpoint, but that’s not important to everyone. The landscaping is understated and it has the right amount of outbuildings and gardens going on. Everything just “belongs” in a way that many other properties don’t pull off.

    The price sounds a bit aggressive for the area. My mother’s side of my family is from about 10 minutes away from this place. It’s a beautiful area…gets rural very quickly if you head the right direction, and the Bethlehem Steel means there’s plenty of history to the area. Bethlehem in general has a very working class feel to it, so this property is by no means the norm, and the property prices seem to be pretty affordable, which is why I think this price is heavy.

      If anyone else is as enamored with this general architectural style as I am, Pohlig Builders makes some magnificently beautiful homes in the Philadelphia Main Line area. I think they generally run from around 5,000 sq ft up to about 7,000, so not quite mansions, but beautiful nonetheless…
