Welcome home to Deerbrook, a handsome, private, country retreat originally created in the 1930s by Samuel Huber, chairman of the F.W. Woolworth Company. This breathtaking property offers 100 acres of forests, fields and streams. The meticulously constructed Arts & Crafts home features interiors fashioned of stone and oak from the property with antique Georgia pine floors. A spacious wood paneled foyer leads to a light filled living room with an impressive stone fireplace flanked by window seats. The dining room seats up to 16 with French doors to a stone terrace and nearby Maple Run stream gurgling quietly in the background. A generous eat in kitchen with Viking range, custom hood, Vermont soapstone counters, indoor wood burning grill and pantry is a chef's dream. A mudroom, wine cellar, office, half bath and cozy family room with fireplace complete the first level. Upstairs, the master bedroom with fireplace overlooks fields, a waterfall on Maple Run and fruit trees. Two en suite baths serve this wonderful room with tiled shower, antique bathtub and walk-in closet. Three more double bedrooms plus two more baths are also on the second floor. One bedroom opens onto its own sun porch, perfect for enjoying the spectacular views. The property offers many outbuildings, including a 30'x50' "trophy" house with large office, living room with double fireplace and storage space. In sight of the main house is a bunkhouse with wood stove overlooking a pond, a fun place to camp out. An octagonal house, currently used as a guest house, has three bedrooms, bath, full eat-in kitchen, living room and private outdoor terrace. Other buildings include a two-car garage, spring house, traditional maple sugar house, horse barn, fully equipped butcher shop, woodworking shop, machine shop, ice house and two storage buildings, all located a short distance away but out of sight of the main house. The spectacular grounds offer many mature sugar maple, apple, plum, cherry, peach and Asian pear trees as well as vegetable, fruit and herb gardens and a wealth of flower species. Enjoy an abundance of year round activities including skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, camping, fishing, horseback riding, swimming as well as grouse, turkey & deer hunting. Deerbrook is very close to Rickett's Glen State Park, one of the state's most beautiful parks, and 100,000 acres of state game lands. Located only two hours from New York City or Philadelphia, Deerbrook is the perfect retreat!
