Contributing Writer

Combining a brick farmhouse with modern needs, this two-story home sits on a hill surrounded by 41.2 acres within Jackson Twp.

Listed for $699,900 by RE/MAX Solutions, the home at 1900 Farmersville West Alexandra Road has about 4,540 square feet of living space on a full basement. The house is custom built with a Hardiplank and brick exterior and has two covered porches and two sun decks, one made of composite material.

The property includes a barn with two stalls, concrete floor, task area, water and fenced pasture access.

There is a pond with a dock, a concrete-surround in-ground swimming pool with pool house, rolling land with 34-plus acres of hay and a 45-ton capacity bridge that crosses Crawford Toms Run creek.

The house has hickory and Brazilian hardwood floors, three bedroom suites with private bathrooms, a kitchen with cherry and mahogany cabinetry. There are pocket doors, wainscoting, a gas fireplace, volume ceilings and two laundry rooms.

Formal entry opens off the “old farmhouse” front with its covered front porch that overlooks the tree-lined creek into a foyer with an open staircase, hardwood floors and pocket doors that open into the formal areas. The living room has patio doors that open to the side deck, and the dining room has access to the kitchen and walk-in pantry.

The entry hallway opens into a two-story great room, which has a gas fireplace flanked by two sets of patio doors that are covered by sliding barn doors. The patio doors open to the composite deck and swimming pool area.

A peninsula breakfast bar divides the kitchen from the great room and curves around to give the kitchen additional counter working space. The two-level bar has a mahogany countertop while the kitchen counters are made of soap-stone and complement the cherry cabinetry.

The kitchen comes equipped with a six-burner gas cooktop, double convection ovens, a dishwasher and built-in refrigerator.

Access to the unfinished basement is off the kitchen as is a mudroom room. The mud room has access to a laundry room, the two-car, attached garage and a covered side porch that overlooks the pond.

Off the great room is a first-floor bedroom suite with both the bedroom and bathroom accessible from a small hallway. The bathroom has a claw-foot tub, a single-sink vanity and wainscoting.

Upstairs are four more bedrooms and three more bathrooms. The main bedroom has a walk-in closet with access to a second laundry room. The bedroom is divided with a sitting room and the bedroom with a cathedral ceiling. The bathroom features two vanities with extended sink bowls, a whirlpool tub surrounded by slate tiles, a private toilet room, a walk-in ceramic-tile shower, and a walk-in closet with bonus cedar-lined closet.

A second bedroom suite is at the front of the home with a private bath. And two bedrooms are off a hallway nook and have access to a third full bath. The upstairs hallway is accented by spindles and is designed as a catwalk above the great room.
