About 197 Ridge Road

This historic and one-of-a-kind property in Potter County. What started as a rundown 1900’s farmhouse on 2.24 acres has been transformed into a complete masterpiece. Quality craftsmanship and strong attention to detail was put into every nook and cranny during the renovation process. The details can be seen in the molding, light fixtures, the antique hardware, and the brick floor that holds in the heat on cold winter mornings. The original house was built from 69 hemlock trees that were hand hewn on top of each other to create a 2-story home and it held together for almost 150 years. Construction began in 2013 where it was stripped down to the hand-hewn logs, from there the foundation was raised and replaced with reinforced concrete blocks. The infrastructure was enhanced with plumbing and radiant floor heat. After countless additions, this home was increased from 2400 to over 5000 square feet. The roof is spectacular with structural support beams that add more character to the home. Field stone from on site was re-purposed and added to the foundation. Another treat is that the original windows were restored and re-installed. Design for the remodel was inspired by Royal Albert, Lady Hamilton China, the colors and pattern are represented throughout the home. As soon as you enter the foyer, you will be in awe and inspired by the open floor plan, luxurious features, and craftsmanship. The gourmet country kitchen is amazing with an oversized center island with 2” thick marble countertop, custom cabinetry, and hardware. The kitchen was designed to utilize space and provide maximum storage opportunities with lighted and adjustable shelving. Cooking, baking, and hosting a crowd is easy with a Thermador refrigerator, Thermador drink fridge and freezer, and 6-burner gas range, plus a classic cast iron cobalt blue AGA range. This is an excellent drink station for making great beverages with fridge, freezer, and lots of storage. For more formal occasions or sit-down meals is the dining room with large windows that let in an abundance of warm natural light while overlooking the scenic views. A sliding barn door unveils an in-home office ideal for working from home. A summer kitchen is another great space with concrete sink for creating summer feasts, cooking, canning, or even planting. Take advantage of 2 fun lofts. These spaces look up at the eye-catching beamed ceilings and could be enjoyed as a sitting room or play area, all while enjoying the views. The finished lower-level transforms into a contemporary styled space equipped with a family room, kitchen, bedroom, and full bath. There is no shortage of space with storage areas, top notch utilities, and a Generac generator. The views around this home are incredible and can be enjoyed from just about every window, especially the dining room and kitchen which have phenomenal southern views. Enjoy the great outdoors with a custom fire pit and slate patio. This homestead also overlooks scenic farmland and valley views of Susquehannock State Forest—a 2.2-million acre state forest. The area is special for outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, hunting, and so much more. Wildlife is abundant with white tailed deer, elk, bear, turkey and many species of birds. While the country setting can be enjoyed, this property is not far from bustling cities like New York, Washington, Philadelphia and Pittsburg.
