Just in time for the holidays, this “High Country English-inspired” mansion on 133 lush pastoral acres including an equestrian farm with an indoor riding arena is on the market just an hour outside of Pittsburgh. Calling to mind a storybook version of the sort of estate where a rich, somewhat eccentric relative might host a grand Thanksgiving dinner, this 17,500-square-foot, four-bed-six-bath known as Hidden Meadow Farm boasts multiple reception rooms including a two-story library with windows inspired by an 18th-century British warship, wine cellar with tasting room, and formal parlor. Plenty of space for people to spread out, especially if dinner discussions become heated.
And though it was built in 2008, handsome period details abound, like crown molding, pilasters, and coffered ceilings done in warm mahogany, custom arched doorways, marble fireplaces, grand staircase framed by a 19th century stained glass window, cherry wood floors, and high ceilings. Modern amenities make the home fit for comfort and include a finished basement, game room, saltwater pool and pool house, English knot garden, stocked pond, and an artist’s studio with—get this—a round Hobbit door that’s sure to be a hit with the kiddos. Rounding out the property are a three-bedroom guesthouse and caretaker’s cottage. Located at 621 Hidden Meadows Lane, it’s asking $6,500,000.
