The Property

SOLD!  Hidden Meadow Farm is a lovingly created country estate situated on 133 lush acres in Ligonier, Pennsylvania. The Property is less than ten minutes from Ligonier’s historic downtown district, and is also within a one-hour drive of the heart of Pittsburgh. The farm includes a magnificent main residence, equestrian barn, multiple paddocks and trails, large-equipment barn, caretaker’s residence, and separate guesthouse.

The feature piece of the estate is its main residence, which offers more than 15,000 sf of handsomely appointed living areas throughout three levels. There are 5 bedrooms, 6 full and 2 half baths, in addition to many uniquely crafted spaces meant to delight and inspire.

For example, a glass conservatory framed in mahogany brings the outdoors in while providing a sunny space to relax with family and friends (or a favorite novel). An otherwise ordinary-looking wall on the main level opens to reveal a staircase which descends to the private wine cellar, offering climate-controlled storage for +2,500 bottles. A second-level artist’s studio is accessed by a massive, circular door (inspired by J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit), comprised of solid wood and decorated with wrought iron forged by local artisans. A magnificent, two-story library – influenced by the details of Lord Admiral Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory – features custom windows similar to those in the British naval commander’s personal quarters, as well as a large wet bar and fireplace lounge.

In addition to these unique spaces, Hidden Meadow Farm also offers a grand foyer, breakfast room, card room and a gourmet kitchen with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, copper-topped center island, and a separate section of granite countertop ideal for baking.

Most of the home’s rooms offer peaceful views of the surrounding hills and distant mountains of Westmoreland County, while others overlook the beautiful flagstone patio, saltwater pool and manicured courtyard. A pool house offers his-and-hers changing rooms and baths, as well as a common area.

Built with no expense spared, the residence boasts commercial-grade systems for functions such as radiant heating (for the upper motor court and patios), water filtration, augmented fire prevention, security and more.

Just down the gently winding drive from the main residence is an 8-stall barn with a 60-ft by 120-ft indoor arena, tack room and storage areas. There are also multiple paddocks, an outdoor riding ring, split-rail fencing and miles of trails throughout the Property grounds.

Additional structures include a two-story, large-equipment barn (housing machinery and implements which are included in the Property sale), a guesthouse dating from the 1800’s and a charming caretaker’s cottage.
