One of the most noteworthy properties to come on the market in a generation, Old Weyhill is an exceptional residence located on a private road, in the exclusive enclave of Old Weyhill, where Bethlehem Steel developed properties for their executives and guests. The legacy of the Old Weyhill community includes a nearby 1790 farmhouse, currently part of the Weyhill Guest Houses for the Saucon Valley Country Club.
Befitting its name, this property is gracefully positioned in the middle of 6.8 acres, and sits amidst mature and specimen trees, with a rolling lawn overlooking quiet vistas. Old Weyhill is a stunning grand estate, reminiscent of the country homes of the British Isles, surrounded by fields of green, enticing one to walk the acreage and stroll the private lane. Inside, windows overlook multiple terraces and lawn, with pool and lanai, all within walking distance to the world class Weyhill Golf Course. This gracious home is quality without compromise, an example of Saucon Valley’s best, and every bit as significant as its location.
Old Weyhill is a re-imagined classic, executed with exceptional craftsmanship in the 2018 additions, redesign and reconstruction. The new design is timeless, blending sophisticated details with contemporary vaulted spaces, in a whimsical and inviting ambience.
At the center of all, the amazing design captures an elegance one would expect in a quintessential Saucon Valley estate property, where exquisite workmanship and detailed execution define each room. From the old-world courtyard, enter and be surprised by the expansive space, with attention to detail like no other, throughout every floor. Old Weyhill offers custom millwork and moldings, doors, locks and hardware, 4 fireplaces and a bounty of oversized windows and French and folding south-facing doors, providing great natural light. Hosting significant gatherings with ease, each first floor room connects to the outside pool, patio and lanai.
A fabulous post and beam, timber frame barn. with reclaimed wood, joins the original stone home through a glass enclosed breezeway, as if it was an original structure. This vaulted space will take your breath away. A lower level game room and wine room are also part of the barn addition.
The first floor master suite and exquisite bath are located in a gracious and elegant wing. On the second floor there are 3 additional bedrooms and 3 full baths and there is a separate second floor office and full bath that can also accommodate guests. Finally, outside areas for intimate or formal gatherings abound. As further complement to this classic estate, the pool and spa have a heated lanai with woodburning fireplace, overlooking the landscaped gardens and vistas of the acreage beyond.
Once houses were built with grandeur and grace, with long driveways leading through expansive lawns, with rooms of grand proportions that flowed into each other, with wonderful attention to detail, exquisite woodwork, surprising accessories and all the accoutrements that made for ease of living. They are rare now, but this gracious home is an example of the today’s best.
