A relaxing drive through pastoral Alloway Township is the best way to visit this quiet retreat on 11 acres. You suddenly pass from the fields into the forest, and take a turn onto a long, paved winding driveway to total seclusion.
This is the perfect log home in the woods, hand-built by local craftsmen who used logs fresh from the mill. Every inch is caulked inside and out, creating a tight, well-insulated structure, while a wood-burning fireplace makes the family room altogether cozy. Full log beams support the tongue-and-groove ceilings.
You can pass through to an expansive open kitchen/breakfast room with extra cabinets and counters. Off to the side of the kitchen, an octagonal dining room brings the outside in, bathing the room with layers of light. A double peaked roof joined by a breezeway gives the house its own separate living space, with a full in-law/guest suite enhanced by an enclosed sun room. There are separate mechanicals for the house and in-law suite. The floor plan was designed with efficiency in mind; there are closets facing every angle and three zones of heating, 2 zones of cooling. All doors in the house are solid wood.
The covered porch is an exceptional location for cocktails on a warm summer evening. Survey your own natural wildlife sanctuary. This could be a great weekend getaway or commuter's dream, only 40 minutes from Philadelphia
