Description

Thank you for taking the time to explore 538 Fairview Terrace. This stunning 1959 Mid-Century Modern home is a paragon of extraordinary architectural design situated in a private, beautifully landscaped setting. Designed by noted architect Ulrich Franzen, the house embodies Franzens signature ability to bring the outside in through his famous floating barrel ceiling and infinity windows. Franzen studied under Walter Gropius at Harvard, alongside fellow students Philip Johnson and I M Pei and went on to establish his own design firm with many significant public buildings and private residences to his credit (see The Architecture of Ulrich Franzen: Selected Works by Peter Blake). This truly unique mid-century modern home is a delight to behold. As you enter the foyer, you are welcomed by elegant ceramic tile and a skylight. Straight ahead, you will pass a full bath, leading into the great room with its distinctive half-barrel ceilings and unique gas fireplace. Adjacent to the fireplace is the cozy library, creating a harmonious space surrounded by two gorgeous courtyards perfect for entertaining. The formal dining room is adjacent to the classy and elegant kitchen, featuring cork flooring and top grade appliances. At the rear of the home, you'll discover a den with a wood-burning fireplace, a first-floor laundry area, a well-appointed office, and another full bath. The bedroom wing of the house offers a total of four bedrooms and two additional full baths. The lower level includes a game room and a storage area, with a large crawl space for extra storage and three separate furnaces. A breezeway connects the house to the two-car garage, and a direct gas line serves the exterior gas grill. The property boasts stunning grounds with beautiful gardens and a circular driveway, completing the allure of this exceptional home. Located on a .7 acre lot in very quiet McClellan Heights and surrounded by mature trees, the property is just south of York near York College and York Hospital, and has five-minute access to Interstate Route 83 and all points of the compass. Baltimore lies south by a one-hour drive, Harrisburg, Lancaster, and Gettysburg are all thirty miles away, and Philadelphia is a two-hour drive east. The house is a treasure and offers a tangible sense of serenity, solitude, and enchantment. A perfect residence or retreat, it is a place that affords a unique opportunity to live well in comfort and style.
