This featured listing from Lewith & Freeman offers a unique opportunity: a beautiful home in Shavertown’s sought-after Woodridge II development.
Shavertown is a quiet and peaceful place to live in the Back Mountain area of Luzerne County. Named after Philip Shaver, an early settler from Vienna, Austria, the area was once home to a gigantic species of legendary evergreen trees. These trees brought Philip to the “Back of the Mountain” region and required him to carve out a path among the heavily wooded lands—a trail which is now Route 309.
While today those legendary evergreen trees are extinct, Shavertown still retains its natural charm. Frances Slocum State Park in Kingston Township, open every day of the year, is a popular recreation spot. It’s a great place for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors.
Space will never be an issue in this 5,576 square foot, 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom Shavertown home on over 3 acres of land. One of the things you will notice immediately upon pulling up to this home is its great curb appeal. This two-story, all brick home has a stately and welcoming appearance surrounded by mature landscaping and beautiful Back Mountain scenery.
Inside this house, you will be struck by high ceilings, clean lines, and expansive windows that provide panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Whether you’re looking to entertain your friends or family, there is plenty of space for everyone to gather.
The modern, eat-in kitchen features high white cabinets, modern appliances, and a center island with seating for at least four. The kitchen flows into the large open family room with built-in storage, one of three fireplaces, and large windows that look out across the backyard.
The first floor also features a formal dining room, a home office with built-in cherry cabinets, a ½ bathroom and a bedroom with attached bathroom. Easily extend your indoor living and entertaining outdoors with this home’s beautiful back deck that can be accessed from the family room and living room.
Upstairs, the Master Suite features a master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, natural gas fireplace, and private balcony. The modern Master Bathroom has an elegant marble floor, whirlpool tub, and double sink. The second floor has an additional three bedrooms and laundry room with utility sink.
The full part-finished basement further extends this home’s available living and entertainment space. The lower-level family room offers a wet bar, wood-burning fireplace, and patio doors that lead to the custom-built in-ground pool. Additionally, a bonus room currently used as an exercise room also has the potential to be turned into a sixth bedroom that walks out to the backyard.
