Roamingwood Lake Lakefront Home for Sale
Even expensive Poconos homes are great bargains. Take a look at what $1.9 million will buy you.
I have repeatedly emphasized since we began offering vacation and resort homes in the Poconos that the largest outdoor playground in Pennsylvania is the best vacation home value. You can get some pretty nice accommodations here without having to spend mainline-sized sums.
But what if you insist on spending so much? Well, you’ll still get a good deal. Consider this Roamingwood Lake waterfront home for sale, for example.
This vacation palace at The Hideout is as lavishly appointed as most Main Line homes. A mix of handcrafted styles and colonial traditions, it also has so many eye-popping elements.
Starting with its two-storey foyer, which forms the upper level of a three-level ground floor.
The lower level contains the dining room and the kitchen. The dining room gets plenty of light from its large triplet window as well as those in the den it overlooks on the lower level.
Meanwhile, the adjoining kitchen has cabinetry that should strike the heart of any Villanovan or Gladwynite. And it has kitchen appliances that should thrill a professional chef’s heart, as they include a large commercial-grade Viking fridge-freezer and a commercial-grade Viking six-burner gas range with double oven, griddle and extractor hood. commercial style, as well as a jar filler and spice storage racks.
A few more steps lead from these rooms to the living room, which has a coffered ceiling and a fireplace. The elevator that serves all floors of this house stops here. (Which, I should note, makes this home less than ideal for a wheelchair user.)
A door next to the fireplace leads to the spacious ground floor terrace, which offers a beautiful view of the lake.
And an arch at the same end of the living room connects to the other large two-story space in this house, his den. The ground floor design gives it two balconies and lots of large windows. A pellet stove gives it extra warmth in the colder months.
A hallway from the kitchen leads to the downstairs shower room of the house. The utility room and three-car garage are also on the upper level, up a short flight of stairs.
Steps lead from the ground floor to the walk-out basement, which also has a tiered layout. The first thing you encounter at the bottom of the stairs is a home office alcove.
Next to the alcove, a hallway leads to one of the two bedrooms on this floor, a full bathroom and a truly impressive mechanical room that contains the very sophisticated innards of this home.
It also leads past this well equipped bar to the family room and second bedroom.
The family room has a more woodsy vibe than the living room. Instead of a coffered ceiling, it has one with exposed beams and its stone fireplace contains a wood-burning stove.
Adjacent is the ground level patio below the main floor deck.
Steps also lead from the ground floor to the second level, which is undivided. Up the stairs is this loft overlooking the family room. A U-turn up the stairs leads to the third bedroom, which has an en-suite powder room and a huge walk-in closet.
A dogleg ride takes you into the master bedroom. The bedroom itself is as large as the whole exterior and has a cathedral ceiling. The elevator takes you directly to this room from the lower floors.
A large walk-in closet on one side of the entrance hall contains the accessories for the central vacuum system of the house. The spacious main bathroom is on the other side. In addition to what you see in this photo, it has a walk-in shower next to the toilet.
You get all of this for just $1.9 million. So far, that might not sound like a bargain, but that’s not all you get here. This property also has a heated driveway, so you will never have to shovel it in the winter. It also has heated floors.
And because this home’s lot backs onto Roamingwood Lake, it also features a large lakefront deck and boat dock.
And since it’s in The Hideout, you also get to enjoy the use of the community’s many amenities. These amenities include a ski resort, campground, and 250 acres of permanently preserved wilderness, and that’s not all.
Try to find all of this on the mainline at all costs. So, does all of that make this Roamingwood Lake waterfront home for sale a bargain, or what?
