Hershey Historical Society Preservation award winning home! Rare opportunity to own a spectacular piece of history on an exclusive street in Derry township. Built by Milton Hershey for his chief financial planner who later become the 1st Postmaster of Hershey, this home is locally known as the Postmaster House. Careful planning went into the significant renovations to be certain that the home was being thoughtfully restored to its original settings from when it was built in 1914. Perched perfectly on a corner lot, this 3 story stucco home boasts unbelievable quality construction like 2 foot thick white stone walls. Walking up the stone steps, you are greeted by the perfect blend of charm and modern comforts. Gleaming hardwood floors in the foyer lead you to the stately living room complete with large windows, one-of-a-kind fireplace with hearty mantle, and two sets of pocket French doors with transoms. The kitchen comes equipped with amenities like gorgeous white cabinetry, sleek black appliances, double undermount sink, tiled backsplash, upgraded lighting, and a center island. Choose to enjoy a meal in the stately dining room or in the breakfast nook off the kitchen. The family room showcases the history of the home with stucco ceilings, custom beams, and an amazing brick fireplace with intricate curved details and built-in shelving. A modern twist to the family room just had to include heated tile floors! The sunroom is simply stunning with exposed rafters a curved wall of windows, and easy access to the yard. Remote work just got a luxury upgrade with this well-appointed executive office complete with beamed ceiling, more built-in storage, decorative columns, and another vintage fireplace. The luxury upgrades extend to the 3rd floor primary suite. This tranquil oasis includes an amazing walk-in closet and attached full bath with custom tiled shower and vanity with vessel sink. Quaint views of the Hershey factory nearby from the windows. Not to be outdone, each additional bedroom is spacious with ample closet space, and each bathroom is the epitome of lavish living. The high-end features continue in the finished lower level with both a sauna and exercise room. A home gym is a must-have nowadays, and this space is perfectly sized to hold large equipment. The expertly landscaped yard and the brick patio with retaining wall and automatic awning provide an exceptional outdoor living space. Rainbird irrigation system makes lawn maintenance a breeze, and the 40 year Presidential shingles make the roof durable and provides peace of mind. The stunning details of this home need to be seen to be appreciated: substantial moldings, two staircases, crystal doorknobs, stained glass, tall ceilings, and a balcony show off an undeniable beauty that simply cannot be recreated elsewhere. This elegant home is a Hershey landmark, and this is a rare opportunity for it to pass onto the next discerning owner with a deep appreciation for a history. Stunning pride of ownership in every room! Hershey Med Center is a short drive away. Enjoy the privacy of the location while still remaining close enough to walk to all of the Hershey restaurants, the theatre, coffeeshops, schools, and more! This high-end piece of history is a joy to own!
