This fine Saucon Valley home is a world apart from the ordinary. Nestled in the private enclave of Stever Mills, long recognized as one of Lehigh Valley's finest communities, the extraordinary and unique architecture helps to create this ambiance. Forge Run is a richly-appointed, carriage-house design, built without compromise and meticulously-crafted, incorporating dramatic rooflines with classic proportions and traditional styling. Curved stone arches on the covered private entrance are a subtle hint of the elegance within. A classic foyer, with a guest alcove, opens to a barrel-vaulted entrance to a dramatic great room. Coffered and tray ceilings delineate these gracious spaces while the use of both interior and exterior transoms throughout adds abundant interest. The great room has a corner fireplace with antique replica plaster surround, wood floors, detailed moldings and over 10ft ceilings. There is an extravagant wall of windows in the gourmet kitchen offering Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, a granite-topped, oversized island, separate butler's pantry with wet bar, and storage and serving space to spare. A den and covered porch lead to the private Pennsylvania bluestone patio, while an elegant first floor master suite has a gracious bath and organized walk-in closet. With remarkable attention to detail throughout, the rich moldings continue upstairs, where a second floor gallery boasts custom shelving, cabinetry and an area for a future elevator. Along with two bedrooms and en suite baths, there is a bonus room perfect for an office/hobby/retreat room. The full basement, with 9 ft ceilings, is plumbed for another full bath. Attention to detail, understated elegance, premium location and an ultra-efficient homeowner's association all create a home that could change how you live.
