You don’t have to live in England to enjoy the stately elegance of life in an English manor home.
In fact, you don’t have to travel any farther than Bent Creek Country Club in Lititz, where such a home awaits, complete with a grand marble staircase, soaring ceilings and colossal arched windows.
In place of the lavender fields of the English countryside, picture a panoramic view of the pristine fairways and greens of this prestigious Manheim Township golf course community.
The home, situated across two prime lots at 770 Bent Creek Drive, is currently for sale. Listing agent is Anne M. Lusk of Lusk & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty.
With 6,890 square feet of living space, this elegant home is perfect for either entertaining or relaxing in your own private oasis.
The home is a show-stopper from the moment you enter, with its sweeping marble staircase and a floor-to-ceiling two-sided fireplace with two-story stone surround.
A wall of majestic atrium windows offers a breathtaking view from the living room, where three sets of French doors open to a stone patio designed for serious entertaining. The granite outdoor cooking station includes a professional series, restaurant-quality built-in Lynx grill.
Cooking indoors is also a breeze in the immaculate kitchen featuring a granite center island, built-in refrigerator, double wall oven, gas cooktop and tile backsplash. The nearby butler’s pantry includes a granite bar with warming drawer to ensure that appetizers are always just the right temperature.
The first floor also includes a bedroom with adjoining office space that offers a scenic view of the greens. The bedroom features a sitting area and a bath with granite double vanity and large shower.
On the second floor, owners can escape to their private luxury oasis with a suite that includes an oversized Jacuzzi, a separate large shower with overhead heat lamps and even a mini refrigerator. The master closet includes a disguised laundry shoot, his-and-hers separated spaces, a built-in Hollywood lighted vanity and custom shoe racks designed to hold 400 pairs of shoes.
From the owner’s suite, the balcony stairway evolves into a bridge that leads to the guest suite. Visitors will feel equally pampered with an en suite bathroom complete with built-in drawers and cabinets, granite double-sink vanity, separate shower and jetted whirlpool bath with striking golf course views.
The finished lower level features a private entrance with patio, a full kitchen and bath, office nook, game room, bonus room and plenty of room to create a dream space all your own.
The three-car garage is heated and air-conditioned for the classic car enthusiast in the family.
The home and property include a host of extra little luxuries, too, such as a convenient shower just off the garage and a new Vacuflo central vacuum system.
And, of course, the gated community has its own luxury amenities, including the 18-hole championship golf course, a tennis facility, a fitness center and an Olympic-size pool.
The home is in the Manheim Township School District. It is priced at $1,125,000.
