As first-generation immigrants from Europe, we felt drawn to this unusual house on an otherwise bare one-acre lot when we were searching for a home in 2001. It allowed us to create the outdoor living space we always dreamed about: A large patio surrounded by a pond, stream and waterfall as well as a fireplace - perfect for everyday family dinners or entertaining a larger group of friends.
The very private property is located in the Pine Timbers/Rabold Fields plan, on a quiet cul-de-sac street. It shares a border with Pine Community Park, a very quiet neighbor, and is conveniently located to all Pine-Richland schools (Middle and High School: 1.42 mi, Eden Hall Upper Elementary School: 4.34 mi, Wexford Elementary School: 2.48 mi). It offers easy access to Rt. 19, I79 and PA Turnpike as well as a multitude of convenient shopping and dining options in Wexford as well as the Cranberry / Mars area. » Details
We have grown from thinking Europe would be our home to moving to America and becoming US citizens. So, we should not have been surprised when another wonderful opportunity opened up unexpectedly.
We are on the move again; this time to Sydney, Australia.
