Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

Sanctuary, Paradise, Hideaway, Private Haven. Words don't fully capture the marvel that John Diament built on this 7.4-acre hillside retreat nestled in the Heart of Chester Springs. Quiet, but visually exciting, equally surprising, and perfectly suited for the site. Luckily there are photos to help tell the story. Reached after a winding drive up to this modest yet grand design, capturing the spirit of this architecturally arresting home. You'll find the four Polynesian-styled pavilions--*Main living area, *Master suite with 2 additional bedrooms & bath, *endless pool & Garden room and *4-car garage/workshop--capped by a multi-angled standing seam roof, wood-toned Hardiplank siding, and a very large partially covered Ipe deck(16' x 23'). Eco-friendly, high-tech interior details and low-maintenance design continue the theme inside. When a hands-on builder like Diament works on his clients' dream home he enlists local artisans resulting in creative craftsmanship. An elegant, uncluttered aesthetic makes the interior feel spacious, calm, and comfortable, while the copious use of glass allows living close to nature. The front entry stone patio(17' x 18') beckons you through the artful Mahogany and glass doorway into the welcoming stone foyer. Soaring 22-foot vaulted ceilings top the main open space surrounded by walls of windows for the living, dining, media rooms, and kitchen--the core of the family space. The unblocked views from every window beckon you outside to enjoy the vistas and landscaped grounds. This energy-efficient home has geothermal heating which can cut costs up to 65% and a backup propane-fired generator. There's a 2-stall barn and 2 pastures for larger animals, owners lovingly cared for miniature horses. Enjoy the photo gallery and the 3D Virtual tour via the camera icon link. This is a home for any age to embrace and enjoy.
