Property descriptionCasa De La Risa
Welcome to Casa De La RisaThis lovely home was re-built 17 years ago. It still lies on the landscape as if it has been there forever. The circular driveway delivers you to the understated but impressive craftsman style entrance which hints at the design inspiration for this wonderful space.Walking into this home brings an immediate sense of calm. The sound of the water wall feature adds to the serenity. At the same time, you are struck by the elegant combination of wood and stone. The water theme is completed by a unique igneous rock fountain in the front yard and a stream-fed pond in the rear. The pond is stocked with brown and rainbow trout and perfect for swimming, kayaking, or just relaxing on the dock on a calm summer evening.The Frank Lloyd Wright inspired design includes an open floor plan, built-in features such as window seats, a breakfast nook, multiple bookshelves, and custom stained-glass window inserts. A Wright aficionado would quickly recognize the stained-glass designs as being replicas from some of his most famous homes and buildings. It is obvious the kitchen is meant for serious cooking and entertaining. The Wolf stove and Sub-Zero built-in and refrigerator drawers add to the functionality of this workspace. The outdoor kitchen is equally appointed with a wood burning pizza oven, two built-in grills, a granite work surface, and a bar sink.The lower ground-level boasts several fun amenities including a 600-bottle wine cellar and a full gym with a steam shower in the adjacent full bath. There is a play room for the kids and a relaxing TV room with a convertible sofa for that inevitable extra guest. In addition to the spacious main living area on the first floor, a second-floor loft holds a fifth bedroom and a work-inspiring private office where you can sit at the built-in desk and watch the ducks play on the pond.We're not done just yet. One of the best bonus features of this unique property is a self-sufficient, one bedroom, bungalow style guesthouse with a full kitchen, gas fireplace and, in the final homage to Frank Lloyd Wright, a mahogany deck that is cantilevered over the mountain stream that feeds the pond. You may have to put a day limit on your guests that stay in this cozy space.What is hard to believe is all of this, and thirty-five acres of natural beauty, is only five miles from the Harrisburg city limit and twenty miles to HIA airport. Although, the regional airport connections can get you to anywhere in the world, you may never want to leave this little slice of heaven on earth. Schedule your tour to experience this wonderful home.
