SOLD! Sited on 100 acres in beautiful Ligonier, Pennsylvania, Whose Woods is an impressive residence sure to delight. Impeccably built and maintained by one family since 2001, the spacious estate features commercial-grade building and materials courtesy of the owner’s extensive background in construction management. Ligonier’s vibrant beauty is showcased on the estate, visible from the miles of horseback or walking trails that weave through the Property to McCullen Run, a trout stream that bubbles within its boundaries.
A winding, gated drive weaves through the wooded lot, finally opening onto an expansive, motor court lined with Belgian block and the welcoming entry of the stone-clad residence. The main living levels offer open spaces for dining and entertaining, centered around a grand salon with massive stone fireplace, exposed wood beam ceiling, and commanding views of manicured lawns and Ligonier’s rolling hills. Five wood-burning fireplaces warm the residence in cooler months, and a screened, four-season porch boasts an outdoor grill and fireplace perfect for hosting family and friends.
Additional entertaining spaces include a lower-level game room complete with shuffleboard and billiards, spacious home theater, and expansive outdoor living areas that showcase a 60-ft pool, spa and a courtyard regularly used for gala events. Two wine cellars and a large gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances provide plenty of space to serve even the largest crowd, and the cozy breakfast nook and adjacent formal dining are well-suited to intimate family meals.
The main residence’s 5 bedrooms are all en-suite, including the luxurious master which features a spa-like bath complete with steam shower and jacuzzi. The Property also features a +/- 3,000-sf log cabin with 4 beds and 3 full baths. Three wood-burning fireplaces grace the cabin, which is adjacent to the main residence and pool – and both the cabin and main residence offer outdoor showers.
Other unique amenities include a campsite in the woods with fire pit and a playground perfect for smaller children. A garden and orchard provide an opportunity to cultivate fruits and vegetables, while the woods surrounding the estate are home to morel, chanterelle and hen of the woods mushrooms – varieties valued by top chefs across the globe.
Mechanicals and smart home features include a Lutron system and automatic blinds as well as geothermal heating and cooling. The property’s three wells are purified in a separate building that houses a water treatment system, whole-house backup generator, staff office and half bath. A 1,000-sf equipment garage offers additional storage for landscaping equipment, and a mechanical building adjacent to the pool stores equipment and accessories.
