Property Description

The creation of this amazing property began in 1971 when the owners first purchased 52 acres of land in Dauphin County Pennsylvania. Over the next 40 years they would spend thousands of hours painstakingly creating one of the most glorious private gardens in the country. It was truly a labor of love. Along the way they built, renovated, and added onto the home and all the surrounding outbuildings, pool house, offices, garages and yes even a chapel! In 1993, after 6 years of preparation they opened The Italian Gardens to the public. This became the focal point of the Wedding venue run from the resort side of the property. More information on the resort can be found in listing PADA117406. Surrounding the home are an array of gardens beginning with the Butterfly Garden and Japanese Garden that welcome you at the entrance to the properties long circular driveway. The Japanese Garden features over 400 plants from the Fred Bergman collection purchased in 1979. This garden flows through a formal entrance, surrounded by streams, bridges, and a tea house. A lovely patio off the back of the home leads to the Island Beds featuring a 90 year old Japanese maple brought over from Japan in 1935. Just beyond that in a park like setting is The Arboretum boarded by Piney Ridge and Daffodil woods. A gentle walking path will next lead you to Alpine Gardens and just over the hill you will find The Italian Gardens. There is an endless amount of beauty to explore but it does not end there. This home was truly built to entertain. The inside of the home features 2 large entertaining areas that lead to a large patio with room for plenty of outdoor seating in the summer. A short path takes you to the California style pool house which features 5 outdoor grills an inside bar , fireplace, 2nd kitchen, 2 bathrooms and entertaining area. Located next door is a large screened in pavilion with an indoor fire pit, bar area, and ceiling fans to keep cool in the summer. This would make an extraordinary 2nd home in the mountains. Your own remote getaway but only 10 minutes from the city and all major highways. Harrisburg International airport is a short 15 minute ride and there are 2 private airports 20 minutes away. Please contact agent for a full list of the gardens.
