High ceilings and abundant woodwork hearken back to a bygone era in this 1930s home in Bethlehem. Reminiscent of an English country cottage, Chestnut Manor rests on over an acre of park-like grounds.
Rich chestnut floors run throughout much of the home, with chestnut detailing along the walls and banisters. The handsome foyer flows easily into a large sunken living room with a 2-story vaulted ceiling, oversized windows and wood-burning fireplace. A formal dining room and adjacent butler’s pantry are perfect for entertaining, while the family room features a slate floor and gas fireplace. The tidy kitchen includes a cast iron sink and gas cooking, while the laundry facilities are just steps away in the lower level. Office space on this floor opens up to a covered patio that looks out over the sparkling in-ground pool.
Two separate staircases lead up to the second floor, with a landing that overlooks the foyer and living room. The primary suite is a quiet oasis, with plentiful windows, walk-in closet, and adjacent bath with marble floors. Two more generously sized bedrooms are on this floor, along with a sitting room and unfinished hall bath. The third floor includes plenty of storage space along with a finished bedroom, play room, and full bath with marble floor and claw-foot tub.
Outside, the grounds have been lovingly maintained and include a circular driveway, wide lawn, a pond, and multiple patio spaces. A 3-car detached garage is a welcome amenity. Chestnut Manor is ideally situated along the Main St Extension, with easy access to shopping, dining and commuter routes.
