WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A private paved road entrance takes visitors to this week's beautiful HomeSource Feature Home in Woodcrest outside Waynesboro.

Built in 2002, the custom stone and stucco French Country home sits atop a mountain on 3.9 wooded acres, offering westerly views of more than 30 miles and glorious sunsets.

The open three-four bedroom floor plan includes three-and-a-half baths, 9- and 10-foot ceilings (some trayed) with plaster over drywall. Numerous arches, a custom wrought iron open staircase, Brazilian rosewood floors and many other extras add to the uniqueness of this home, which includes more than 4,000 feet of finished space.

The double front door with covered entrance opens into a 14-by-7 Italian stone foyer and the great room with its spectacular 28-by-17 vaulted ceiling. The large gas stone fireplace is the focal point of the great room, which is open to the kitchen for convenient entertaining.


The Kitchen (26-by-14), is exceptional with a center island, stainless steel appliances, trash compactor, garbage disposal, microwave oven, custom cabinetry by Hess, tumbled Italian tile accents, granite counters throughout and an adjacent dining area. The area opens to covered porch and deck providing the ideal spot for enjoying the treetops, sunsets or your morning cup of coffee. The deck features a spiral iron staircase to the patios below.

The house's main level has a large master bedroom (20-by-14) and a second bedroom (18-by-12) - each with its own custom tile bath.

There is a dramatic powder room, and an oversized laundry room (24-by-8) with an abundance of cabinetry, and pantry room. Two additional bedrooms on the lower level measure 18-by-15 and 18-by-13. (One is currently maintained as an office.) A large Family Room (22-by-18), an 862-square-foot garage, four-car garage and 1,200-plus square feet of storage area complete the home.
