Eagles Mere, a legendary name, is actually a resort town 'by design' dating back to 1877 and is where 3rd and 4th generations still make lasting summer memories high atop the Endless Mountains in PA. A National Historic District, the town has 120 full-time residents; that population swells in the spring through fall to host 3,000 lake and outdoor lovers, renting or taking residence in vintage cottages, cozy homes with sleeping porches and newer residences, keeping up a tradition known as 'destination summering'. There is a bustling, main street with shops and stores, but the lake is the focal point where the beach, boating, fishing and swimming capture most of the day's hours. Friendships for life are forged here; marriages and other major life events are celebrated with the help of neighbors sharing cottages to accommodate extended family; outdoor skills, like how to tie a butterfly-loop knot, properly tack your Sunfish and tie a fly for a winning bass, are learned! This offering, built in 1991, with 5 HVAC zones, is one of the larger options featuring 4BR in the main house, one of which is a first-floor master; a special guest house with 2BR & a sleeping loft?all told, 16 can comfortably fit and as many as 20 have survived just fine for a long weekend! Some call it two homes in one - New England meets Bucks County Manor Home in a seamless environment. Choose your entrance: Walk down a brick path into a magical, random-width-floor room featuring a massive wood-burning fireplace, reminiscent of early Colonial homes or enter via a sophisticated, lighted gallery that leads to a vaulted-ceiling living room with built-ins and a fireplace. The well appointed, butcher-block kitchen with breakfast bar joins the two styles as a central hub. The dining area off of the kitchen is perfectly balanced with period corner cabinets, fixtures and tones from a beamed ceiling. A huge screened porch is accessible two ways with private views of the grounds. Open space abounds on the acre-plus property, wooded sides afford privacy and the entire perimeter is masterfully fenced with unbelievable stack stone pillars between rails - a harkening back to the Revolutionary era. Room for 4 cars in garage spaces, plenty of on-site parking for guests, a studio or fitness room and an office area for when real life calls make this a well-rounded property waiting for new characters and stories to be told for generations!
