SALISBURY TWP., Pa. - When a Lamborghini Countach is an accent piece, you know you're not in an average home.
A 25-room, 13,000 square-foot brick home that sits on more than two-and-a-half acres of land in Salisbury Twp., Lehigh Co., is anything but average. It's on the market for $3.9 million.
Owner Carrie gave 69 News the inside tour of the Myron Haydt-designed home, which is more like a personal resort that comes with your own lap pool, sauna, gym, gift-wrapping room and even a room for a dog. There's also an elevator, perfect to pop down to the basement to catch a flick in the screening room.
Perhaps the most impressive part of the home is a three-story atrium, complete with waterfall and koi pond. Upstairs are five bedrooms, including a two-room master suite, complete with dressing rooms fit for a New York showroom, which the husband's was modeled after.
"All made of cherry, reproduced for same look of it," Carrie explained.
The kitchen has double ovens, double dish washers and a six-burner stove, but Carrie said it's the windows that make the room the perfect place for morning coffee.
"We love to watch squirrels and birds out the window. It's just beautiful," she said.
Counter tops are Italian marble. Realtor Carol Dorey said the details are what separates the multi-million dollars home from others.
"All the woodwork done by hand. Had made knives to made to make the moldings.
The parquet floors, the builder couldn't find people who were good enough to do the way he wanted so he did the floors himself," Dorey said.
For Carrie, it's been a home where dreams have certainly been made.
"It feels pretty special. Not only do we enjoy the beauty of it, but we get to share with it friends and family," she said.
