1 Peyton Drive is a fully customized, highly upgraded modern farmhouse estate property sitting on 2.43 commanding acres in the beautiful Lindenwood community. As you approach the home, note its situation at the highest point in the community, affording one-of-a-kind sweeping panoramic views of the historic Cumberland Valley, South Mountain to the south, and Blue Mountain to the north.
Make your way up the extended driveway to the oversized two and a half car garage- complete with three bays and a pedestrian door- and appreciate the exterior beauty of the home on the approach. Vertical and horizontal white siding contrasts against the black Andersen window package, and shed dormers accentuate the roofline with contemporary charm. You approach the front door and note the large, covered porch, with sunset views to the west.
Step into the home via the extended height, eight-foot-tall, stained entry door and your eye will immediately be drawn across the spacious foyer and living area to the picture-perfect view of South Mountain framed by the 12-foot-wide extended height Andersen Architectural Series Frenchwood Sliding Doors that provide access to the rear covered porch. Your gaze returns to your immediate surroundings, and you note the open dining room to your left, framed by stained wood beams along the 9-foot ceilings and a wood column extending from the floor. You move forward through the foyer into the living room and take in the 15-foot-tall cathedral ceiling- complete with a wood-stained ridge beam and ten auxiliary stained beams extending down from the ridge- that continues all the way through the kitchen to your left. To your right you note hall access to the guest wing, complete with two spacious additional bedrooms, accompanying walk-in closets, linen closet, and a full bath.
Stepping further into the living room, you note the fieldstone propane fireplace centered on the righthand wall, complete with a stained wood mantle to match the ceiling’s beams. On each side of the fireplace are built-in shelves finished in shiplap which further accentuate the space. Straight ahead, you can now see out onto the rear covered porch, and notice its stained wood ceiling, on which not one but two exterior ceiling fans are mounted, in addition to dimmable recessed lights (the home features 55 dimmable recessed lights in total).
Turning now to the left, you proceed through the living room into the kitchen, and note the white farm sink and stainless-steel Bosch appliance package- including double wall ovens (one being a speed oven), a six-burner propane range, a range hood with shiplap accented chase extending to the ceiling, dishwasher, and refrigerator. The kitchen island and countertops are topped with a high-end black-and-white granite, and high grade extended height wall cabinetry surrounds the space. A pocket door conceals the butler’s pantry, which is itself complete with a wraparound countertop and abundance of outlets for appliances, high grade two-tone cabinetry, a built-in beverage center, and a window with a view to the front yard.
Continuing through the home into the master suite, you pass a powder room and dedicated laundry to your left, and an additional Andersen exterior hinge door to your right, providing easy access to the rear porch from the master, laundry, or powder room. Once in the master you can appreciate the size of the space, as well as the size of the 9-foot by 10-foot walk in closet. Turning the corner into the master bath, your eye is met with a stunning, doorless, walk-in custom tile and glass shower. Two individual vanities provide separate sinks, and an extended vanity top and makeup vanity provides room for a chair if desired.
Returning through the master wing past the powder and laundry, straight ahead of you is garage access, and a mud area with cubbies, hooks, and a bench, finished in shiplap. Around the corner is access to the full-footprint unfinished Superior Walls basement, itself featuring 9-foot ceilings, complete with outside access, a daylight window, and mechanicals (such as the 80-gallon hot water heater). To your right is a custom “Y” staircase with stained oak treads and painted white risers, which continues up to a landing and splits to the left and right. To the left is a massive bonus room above the garage (in this room note the thermostat controlling the third of three heating and cooling zones in the home’s energy efficient dual-fuel heat system), and to the right is a stained wood barn door. Slide open the door to reveal a stunning office or fourth bedroom, complete with yet another Andersen slider, which provides access to the custom floating wrought iron balcony that offers panoramic south facing sunlit views of the valley and mountains. To your left, a double window provides mountain views to the northeast, and a full bath and closet completes this space.
This truly unique, one-off, one of a kind home encapsulates the Artisans Design Build vision for the remaining five estate Artisans lots at Lindenwood, and exemplifies the construction and aesthetic standards that have come to define the Artisans name. You would be hard pressed to find a home built to such standards which is also situated on such a premium site and location, with sweeping views and easy access to commuter routes, the nearby communities of Carlisle, Boiling Springs, Mt Holly Springs, and Mechanicsburg, and the outdoor recreation opportunities afforded by Kings Gap State Park, Michaux State Forest, Tuscarora State Forest, The historic fly-fisherman’s delight that is the Yellow Breeches Creek, The Conodoguinet Creek, golf clubs, state game lands, and the area’s many pristine public parks- including the Dickinson Township community park at Lindenwood, connected to the community via a private walking trail.
