Newly built farmhouse on half-acre in Dauphin County for $875K: Cool Spaces

To get any closer to the Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center campus, this new home would have to be located on the campus itself.

This traditional farmhouse-style home is built on a half-acre corner lot across the street from the walking and biking trails that provide recreation and connect the areas of the medical center campus.

The location puts the home a short drive from downtown Hershey and all of the shopping, entertainment and dining options available in the area.

The 6,075-square-foot home has design features such as a stone veneer front, wood post supports for a large covered front porch, a large covered back patio, walk-out lower level with stone hardscaping, a detached two-car garage with wood exterior, metal roof, cupola with weathervane, and a covered exposed wood walkway connecting the home’s mudroom/laundry area to the exterior garage.

The home has five bedrooms, four full baths and one powder room, and an attached two-car garage, for a total of four garage parking spots.

Thoughtful architecture gives the home strong curb appeal and includes triple dormers breaking up the roofline on the front and a large shed dormer in the back bringing more height to the foyer, bedrooms and upstairs bath.

The main floor living area features an open floor plan with unobstructed views of the back yard with a wall of windows and French doors. Wood floors give warmth to the entire main floor.

The chefs kitchen space flows into a breakfast nook and great room with gas fireplace. Off of the great room is the first floor master suite with large walk-in closet and spa bathroom with tile floor, soaking tub and oversized custom shower.

The finished daylight walk-out lower level, located down wood steps that match the wood floors of the main floor, off of the great room, has a large family room, wet bar and full bath, making it perfect for overnight guests.

Finishing out the main floor is a formal dining room and a bonus room office space located off of the two-story foyer next to the front door.

All five bedrooms in the home are designed with walk-in closets and one of two second level full baths has clever storage nooks carved into the walls.

Located at 595 Sand Hill Road in Derry Township, the home is listed at $875,000 by agent Melanie Musser, with Iron Valley Real Estate of Lancaster.
