To the future owners of 141 Hanshue Road,
We purchased this home for the generous plot of land overlooking an open expanse of sky with woods to one side and hills in the distance. The home is beautifully appointed in all details. We have three children, and although they are now grown, we wanted a welcoming home with enough room for growing families for their returns. The home has wonderful gathering areas like the open kitchen and a dining room that easily seats our family with friends and others.
As the homes of Gingrich Glen filled in, we discovered we had a wonderful group of caring, friendly, and supportive neighbors. A message will go out that it’s someone’s birthday and everyone is invited to meet out on a porch to sing a surprise Happy Birthday, or an impromptu special gathering for the neighborhood kids to participate in a group trick-or-treat to each other’s homes (and they insisted my visiting two grandkids come and participate), or the neighborhood banning together to collect for a Mission Drive at someone’s church.
It’s hard to single out which features we enjoy most. The welcoming mahogany front porch and custom door immediately draws the attention of guests. The stone exterior drew us to the home from the moment we saw it. In terms of living space, we have a covered back patio with ceiling fans, recessed and dimmable lighting, and the patio extends into the yard. It is a perfect outdoor entertainment setting. In terms of interior features, it is again hard to single them out. The garage is nicely finished, has a sound system and is heated. The kitchen has high-grade appliances and spacious cabinets for all your cooking needs. The floor-to-ceiling fireplace in the open, two-story cathedral great room is the focal point of the home. The dining room seats many and the living room has a beautiful ceiling. However, our most treasured area is the master suite. It provides a seating area in front of a gas fireplace. This area opens to a deck that is perfect for evening relaxation. In the morning you can catch a beautiful sunrise or watch a gorgeous sunset in the evening. The master closet is spacious and well designed. The master bath is very roomy and has a wonderful shower. Some of our other favorite features are the elevator (great for bringing up boxes and boxes of Christmas decorations), the under-counter ice-machine (great for entertaining), and the ever-efficient geothermal heating and cooling system with three zones.
This is a great place to raise a family! The area has great schools, a first-class medical institution, Hersheypark for family amusement, Giant Center and Hersheypark stadium for concerts, Ice Capades, sporting events, just about anything you want, as well as a Theatre that hosts traveling Broadway plays. You get the benefits of a small town with many of the amenities of a city.
There are great amenities nearby. We like going to Devons, Houlihans, and The Mill, but our favorite is the Circular Dining Room at Hotel Hershey. We have many memories of dinners there, including a special night with the great, great grandson of Charles Dickens as he re-enacted the story of ‘A Christmas Carol’ between sumptuous courses, amidst a beautiful Christmas atmosphere. We also had the pleasure of dinner in the Circular Dining Room with the former White House chef where he regaled us with stories and special dishes of Presidents he had served. My husband and visiting family also like going to Troegs (right next to the Hershey Outlets). Giant grocery store is only a few minutes away, as well as Dunkin Donuts for coffee and Phillies Pretzel for a quick party tray!
There are so many reasons to love this home! We have truly enjoyed our time here, and we are certain that you will too!
