    Agent's Comments

    THE AERIE---AN EXTREMELY RARE FIND, THIS ICONIC HOME HAS SO MUCH TO OFFER! SITUATED APPROXIMATELY 3 MIN FROM DOWNTOWN CUMBERLAND, BUT SO WELL HIDDEN THE AVERAGE PERSON WOULDN'T EVEN KNOW IT EXISTED... AND SUCH A DELIGHTFUL TREASURE TO BOOT! IT IS DIFFICULT TO PUT INTO WORDS THE UNIQUENESS OF THIS PROPERTY BECAUSE IT IS SOMETHING THAT DOES NOT HAVE AN EQUAL! SITUATED ON APPROXIMATELY 7.25 SECLUDED, GATED ACRES, YOU ARE MET AT THE TOP OF THE KNOLL WITH A STONE STRUCTURE WITH CURIOUS WINDOWS AND A 16 HIGH FOOT FRONT DOOR!! OWNER HAS RESEARCHED AND CANNOT FIND ANY OTHER RESIDENTIAL DOOR LIKE THIS IN EXISTENCE--AND IT MAKES FOR A JAW DROPPING FIRST IMPRESSION! WALK INSIDE AND BE WOWED BY THE TALL CEILINGS AND A LARGE, OPEN FLOOR PLAN ABSOLUTELY PERFECT FOR ENTERTAINING! TO ATTEMPT TO WRITE OF ALL THAT IS IMPRESSIVE IN THIS AMAZING HOME WOULD TAKE A BOOK TO GIVE IT JUSTICE--IT IS JUST THAT SPECTACULAR! THE "READERS' DIGEST" VERSION WILL SPEAK OF THE OVER-SIZED ROOMS, RICH WOODS, OUTSTANDING KITCHEN WITH A FIREPLACE AND LARGE ISLAND, AND AN ABUNDANCE OF CABINET SPACE, NOT TO MENTION THE WET BAR (ONE OF TWO IN THE HOME) IN THE MAIN FLOOR FAMILY ROOM, THE SOLARIUM USED AS AN OFFICE SPACE, AND THE EXQUISITE FORMAL DINING ROOM WITH A CHANDELIER MOST COULD ONLY DREAM OF!! IT COULD MENTION THAT THERE IS A FAMILY ROOM ON ALL THREE LEVELS AND 4 FIREPLACES! THE LOWER LEVEL IS NOT TO BE SHORT CHANGED CONSIDERING THE HUGE BAR, BILLIARD AREA, PIN BALL AREA, AND STILL ENOUGH ROOM TO ROLL BACK THE RUGS AND DANCE! MUCH OF THE WOOD IN THE INTERIOR OF THE HOME, AS WELL AS MANY WOODEN SHUTTERS, AND THE BILLIARD TABLE CAME TO THE HOME FROM THE QUEEN CITY TRAIN STATION--LOCALS WILL KNOW OF THIS STRUCTURE AS A BEAUTIFUL LANDMARK NO LONGER IN EXISTENCE, HOWEVER, ITS LEGACY LIVES ON HERE. THE DESIGN WAS MAINLY THAT OF A LOCAL DOCTOR WHO GAVE SUCH ATTENTION TO DETAIL THROUGHOUT, IN FACT, THE BLUE PRINTS ARE STILL AVAILABLE. THE ENTIRE HOUSE IS BUILT ON STEEL IBEAMS--SO, NOT A MAJOR CHANCE THAT IT WILL EVER SAG! WHILE WE ARE ON THE SUBJECT OF HISTORY, THIS PARCEL OF GROUND IS A VERY FAMOUS PART OF THE CIVIL WAR AND WAS INVOLVED IN THE WELL KNOWN BATTLE OF FOLKES MILL (A MONUMENT IS ERECTED AND LITERATURE CAN BE PROVIDED)........BUT WAIT!! THERE'S EVEN MORE!! THERE IS THE MOST CHARMING POOL HOUSE SEPARATE FROM THE MAIN HOUSE INCLUDED AS WELL.... IDEAL FOR MOM, OLDER CHILDREN TO LIVE SEPARATELY, OUT OF TOWN GUESTS, OR JUST A GREAT SETTING FOR POOL PARTIES OR TENNIS MATCHES--OR BOTH!!! THE POOL IS EXTRA DEEP AND HEATED IN CASE YOU WANT TO PRACTICE YOUR OLYMPIC DIVES EVEN WHEN THERE IS A CHILL IN THE AIR. IT IS LIKE HAVING YOUR OWN ALL-INCLUSIVE RESORT! SO, IF YOUR TASTES ARE ECLECTIC AND WHIMSICAL AND YOU LOVE TO ENTERTAIN, YOU WILL NOT BE AT ALL DISAPPOINTED WHEN YOU GET THE CHANCE TO SEE THIS ONE OF A KIND HOME!! A FIND LIKE THIS IS ONCE IN A LIFETIME CHANCE--THE AERIE....DEFINED AS A FORTRESS HIGH ON A MOUNTAIN OR HILL THAT IS PROTECTED FROM INVADERS...A PEACEFUL RETREAT...THIS DESCRIBES THIS MAGNIFICENT SPOT TO PERFECTION!!!SEE VIDEO AND 3D TOUR FOR ADDITIONAL DETAILS--2ND VIDEO COMING SOON--GET THE POPCORN READY!
