Located in the heart of Hershey, this immaculate historical preservation award winning home boasts 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and over 5,000 square feet of living space. The home was originally built by Milton Hershey and is known locally as the Postmaster House. An eye-catching design was incorporated to this corner property made out of 2 ft thick white stone, giving it the glamour and prestige that it has today. Both the interior and exterior of the house have been restored close to their original looks of 1914 when it was built. As soon as you step into this 2.5 story beauty, you’ll notice a bright and open atmosphere from vivid transom windows to gleaming hardwood floors. Highlighting the main floor is a breathtaking all-seasons sunroom with tile flooring, exposed beams, distinct shiplap, and walls of windows for natural light to bathe the room. It truly is the perfect room for relaxing year-round. The adjacent family room makes for a great entertainment area with built ins, sliding door to the sunroom, warm gas fireplace, and convenient access to the 2-car garage. Past the family room is a gorgeous kitchen complete with white cabinetry, tile backsplash, center island, built in appliances, electric cooktop/range, and even a breakfast area overlooking a scenic stained-glass window. For more formal occasions, the separate dining room is just the place for gatherings and holiday get-togethers. In times like today, a comfortable yet private area to work from home is a must have. Look no further than the quiet study just off the living room, featuring beautiful French doors, a double-sided fireplace, exposed beams, and built ins for easy storage. Completing the first floor is a convenient laundry room and half bath. The second floor of this already immaculate home boasts 2 full baths and 3 spacious bedrooms, each with plenty of closet space. A pair of staircases can be found to the second floor, one in the kitchen and one by the foyer. Right before the stairs to the third floor is a door with convenient access to a rooftop terrace with unlimited possibilities. The secluded third floor is home to a 4th bedroom that can also be used as an owner’s suite, featuring a private bath and 2 sizable walk-in closets. Additional living space can be found in the lower level which offers a spacious recreation area, currently being used as a home gym, but could easily be a game room or even a home theater. The lower level also includes a personal sauna, perfect for relaxing after a workout. The exterior offers a private brick patio in the backyard that is well shaded, making it an ideal location for summer gatherings. This property offers a truly rare opportunity at owning a part of Hershey history! From the soaring ceilings to the astounding pathway to enter the home, this property is rightfully one-of-a-kind.
