Overview

Seeking sanctuary? During times of uncertainty, nothing provides greater peace of mind and a sense of comfort than the knowledge that you and those you love are safe and protected at home. This exclusive 13,800 s.f. family compound was built to provide easefulness during such times. The home sits in the middle of a 100-acre parcel of breathtaking, secluded land adjacent to the base of the Hawk Mountain Sanctuary and its 13,000 acres of protected woodland in Eastern Pennsylvania. Yet its location is just 2 hours by car along I-78 from New York, and closer still to Philadelphia. Enjoy the very best of rural country living with great local services, just a short drive from the city.World-renowned architect Peter Bohlin, FAIA, was commissioned to design a solid, timeless home made of stone and wood, resistant to style trends, upon this bucolic hillside- a home that would allow its inhabitants to live and work remotely isolated from the outside world while enjoying stunning views and active engagement with nature all around. Mr. Bohlin is recognized for conceiving many high-profile designs over the years, including some of the most-publicized Apple stores around the world, and he has the distinction of creating the private residences for both Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. The award-winning Blue Mountain Estate has been featured in Architectural Digest magazine and books and journals throughout the world. It is a substantial, well-conceived, and elegant property completely unlike any other in the Mid-Atlantic region and offers more thoughtful details and amenities than can be properly detailed in this space- including 6 fireplaces, an underground security bunker, guesthouse, 6-car garage, elevator, and a backup electric generation system. Local zoning regulations permit a helipad, if so desired. An adjoining 35.6 acre parcel of beautiful wooded land offers more than 2,300 feet of river frontage and exceptional fly fishing, kayaking and hiking, and is available separately at a very attractive price. Mr. Bohlin said recently the following of the home: -"One approaches the house on a road that begins in the valley and winds up the field into the forest and then discovers the entry courtyard. The house is built of stone and timber and sits firmly upon its site. It is a great house with very appealing guest facilities. It is one of our best houses, and one of my personal favorites with an extraordinary site that looks across the valley to Hawk Mountain. To watch raptors, hawks, and eagles flying along the ridge is a terrific experience"-.
