Welcome to 209 Stonecrest Court in Gibsonia.  This four bedroom, 3.5 bath home is an absolute gem!  Situated in the Pine-Richland School District (in fact, within walking distance of the High and Middle Schools), the home is loaded with details and amenities that will please the most discerning eye.  Once you step foot in the home you may feel as though you’ve entered a contemporary dwelling in New York.  The home exudes quality.  Where to begin?

The foyer greets you with a voluminous two-story ceiling and beautiful hardwood floors that run throughout the entire home and classical wainscoting that runs up the stairway.  The neutral tones make this home most inviting.  To the left of the foyer, behind double French doors sits the ultra-equipped study.   With dual workspaces, a quartz work surface with waterfall edge, a pin board back wall, and ample built-ins for organization this space combines style with efficiency and can easily accommodate two.  Of note is the wonderfully handcrafted coffered ceiling.

Leaving the study head back to the kitchen.  This kitchen is a chef’s dream with stainless steel appliances including a Jenn-Air six burner gas range top, Jenn-Air refrigerator, Wolf double ovens, Wolf microwave drawer and an Asko dishwasher.  The space is finished with quartz counter tops, glass tile backsplashes and white cabinets that contrast nicely with the rich dark color of the floors.  Off the kitchen sits the stylish dining room.  This room has amenities you just won’t find elsewhere. The built-ins are much more than they appear, concealing a wine refrigerator, a beverage center and a custom stainless steel sink that make for a convenient wet bar.  Additional details include a tray ceiling and double French doors leading to the patio.  If you like to entertain this room is made for you.

On the opposite side of the kitchen is the impressive family room.  The highlight of this room is the magnificent fireplace.  The minimalist design includes a uniquely styled 18’ quartz hearth and mantle that span the entire width of the room, plus an inset above the mantle that can accommodate most any sized television.  You won’t see it, but the room has surround sound.  The reason you won’t notice this feature is due to invisible speakers and a subwoofer concealed within the wall.  Other features include a tray ceiling with crown molding, recessed lighting and suede wallpaper.

Proceeding to the upper level and you are welcomed by a dramatic view overlooking the foyer.  The hardwood floors and wainscoting are carried through to the second level.  Ahead of you at the end of the hall is the master bedroom suite that gives the impression of being in a five-star hotel.  Details of this room include a deep tray ceiling that is accentuated with concealed up-lighting, recessed lighting above the bed and the opposing side of the room and a large walk-in closet with custom closet organization.  The master bath beckons.  Separated by double pocket doors, the master bath is like having your own spa.  The item that first grabs your attention is the large shower.  Surrounded by glass, porcelain tile and a glass tile accent the shower includes a bench, rainfall shower head, a handheld shower and spray jets - long showers are guaranteed.  Plus you’ll have the luxury of stepping out onto a heated porcelain tile floor.

The second bedroom features a large closet and has its own luxurious bath featuring heated ceramic tile floors and a linen closet.  Heading down the hallway to the remaining bedrooms you’ll pass the shared hall bath.  This bath has a large vanity, tile floors and a window in the tub/shower combination.  The third bedroom is adorned with a contemporary ceiling light and a large closet.  The final bedroom is currently configured as a Star Wars themed play room.  Details include recessed lighting and custom built-ins.  The built-ins on either side of the loveseat can serve as nightstands and will accommodate a full size bed.  This spectacular home isn’t done yet.  All four bedrooms have a warm ambiance thanks to the choice in paint colors.

Head back downstairs and out to the back yard.  Like the rest of the home, not one detail or amenity was overlooked.  The tour of the area begins with the large New York bluestone, covered patio that extends out, a tray ceiling, ceiling fan, professional grade heaters, recessed lighting and invisible speakers.  Just off the patio sits the outdoor kitchen.  Every BBQer’s dream is equipped with these amenities: Lynx appliances, including a 36” stainless steel professional grill, built-in double refrigerator, storage cabinet, warming drawer, double side burner, pull-out trash/recycle drawer and a thirteen foot, 3” thick granite counter top.

Next is the elegantly styled 10 x 40’ lap pool.  The pool is constructed of commercial grade gunite with a border of imported Australian tile and a bluestone bullnose coping carried over from the expansive patio.  The seating area off the pool is on a 10 x 20’ deck constructed with Brazilian Walnut (Ipe) and surrounded by a stainless steel cable railing.  You may notice that the entire back has been built up to create a level yard.  This was accomplished with a commercial grade Unilock retaining wall constructed of blocks weighing 500 pounds each.  All the landscape areas feature zero maintenance slate “mulch”.  The yard is also accentuated with landscape lighting, speakers and a multi-zone irrigation system.  Lastly, the entire yard is enclosed with two different fencing styles.  One is a black steel ornamental fencing.  The remainder is a contemporary, horizontal wood fence constructed of aluminum and Alaskan yellow cedar.

A magnificent home in a private community, in a highly ranked school district.  What more could one ask?  Well... Stonecrest is within close proximity to numerous restaurants, shopping and activities plus quick access to major arteries Rtes. 19 & 228, I-79 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
