This home has been lovely enjoyed by the current home owners. They have keep the home updated and maintained. Many times were enjoyed in the hot tub (deck has extra support and electrical hook up) that was on the deck. The privacy provided by the wooded tree line makes entertaining and relaxing on the deck like a mini vacation. New roof was installed in 2015. Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring was just installed in 2017 in the dining room, kitchen and laundry. This home as two gas fireplaces, one in the family room and one in the finished walkout lower level and two laundry rooms. One on the 1st and one on the 2nd floor. Geothermal heat and cooling means low utilities! A joy to show!
To the future buyers of 2908 Ionoff Road,
When we first saw this house, we fell in love! At one of our pre-purchase visits to this house, we sat on the deck for about an hour just enjoying the scenery of the backyard. The greenery and variety of the trees, the various birds flitting through and singing. We just looked at each other and said this is the place for us. Through the twenty years of living here, we have never tired of the woodland view from the family room and the deck.
To this day, the deck and land remain one of the most wonderful features of the exterior of this house. We loved the deck from the start! We eat dinner, read books, listen to the symphony of the birds, and for 16 years we had a hot-tub where we spent countless hours relaxing and enjoying the view. We also created wonderful relaxing and soothing places throughout the property: a swing under the deck, two Adirondack chairs in a cool, relaxing landscaped grotto, and who can’t love the bench in front of the house for early morning or late afternoon coffee.
The interior is defined by the “grand window” in the family room! The view is spectacular and ever changing. Spring brings cherry blossoms, and new life sprouting from all the trees and foliage. Summer brings a cooling canopy of maple, elm, shag bark hickory, cherry and sycamore leaves. Fall displays a plethora of color; reds, oranges, golds, and ochres. Winter’s starkness brings a view not seen any other time of year, a twinkling, and glowing view of the skyline.
The exposed lower level can be used as an office, game room or an additional bedroom. It has a southern exposure allowing for ample sunlight, a full bath and its own propane fueled fireplace.
Another great feature of this home is the location. You cannot beat the close proximity via short road trips to places like the Inner harbor, Annapolis, Philadelphia, NYC, Jersey shore, Atlantic City, State College.
This property provides all of the space and privacy of a neighborhood while remaining in close proximity to all of the local amenities. It is just a short walk away from the community pool. There are ample opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast such as: Boyd Big Tree Conservation Area, Wildwood Park, Kings Gap and Gifford Pinchot State Parks.
Downtown Harrisburg is only 15 minutes away and offers attractions like the Capital, Whitaker Center, River Front Park, City Island, and Rose Lehrman Arts Center. Hershey is similarly only a short drive away. Hershey has so much to offer like Founders Hall, the Spa, the Gardens, Hershey Park, Giant Center, and the Theater. The Shoppes of Susquehanna offer a great place to spend an afternoon! What’s not to love-- Plum Bottom and Clark’s for shoes, Chico’s, White and Black Market, and Francesca’s for clothes, and Starbucks or Macaroni Grill for a finish to a busy shopping day.
This location is also close to all kinds of spectacular restaurants. Blue Ridge Restaurant – wonderful and friendly staff, diverse menu for just about anything you’re hungry for, and delicious food. Hong Kong Ruby – great service, terrific Chinese food and portions usually requiring a “to go” container. Stony Creek Tavern – nothing like eating on their deck while listening to and watching the water flow over the spillway. Once again great food and huge portions. Your Place Restaurant – can’t beat the stromboli’s, and the all you can eat buffet Wednesday nights.
We are happy to know that the next owners will get to enjoy all of the features of this house as well! We have truly enjoyed our time here, and we are certain that you will too!
