Fantasy Farm Friday: $4.2 Million Ligonier Estate
If you want a beautiful home in the country that has a barn and was owned be the owner of an MLB team, this is the estate for you.
This stunning 63-acre estate was owned by former Pittsburgh Pirates owner Kevin McClatchy. It’s nestled in the heart of the Laurel Highlands in the charming town of Lignoier, Pennsylvania. It’s only minutes from downtown Ligonier, but it is secluded, peaceful and serene nonetheless. It’s an ideal place to unwind and enjoy your horses.
The residence itself is at the end of a winding drive, with a porte cochere lined with stone-clad arches.
The main home boasts an open floor plan that is perfect for socializing, but the heart of the home is the expansive central living room – complete with hand-hewn Georgia pine, a two-story stone fireplace and French doors opening to a covered terrace with truly exceptional views. Interior finishes include exposed wood beams, wood flooring and stone accents.
There are six beds, six full and one-half baths spanning three living levels and 9,600 square feet, so there’s plenty of room for family and friends to spread out.
The home is equipped with a gourmet kitchen (with pizza oven!), wet bar, wine cellar and a lounge with room for billiards, which makes indoor entertaining ideal.
However, the outdoor living space is nothing to sneeze at either. There is a large gas fire pit, covered dining and a sparkling pool and spa for outdoor parties or even just a little R & R.
There’s also a private guesthouse, complete with three cozy bedrooms, a full bath and full kitchen. This adds even more space for family and friends to recuperate after a long day spent riding or enjoying everything Ligonier has to offer.
All of this is great, but we know what equestrians really want. The estate includes a charming six-stall barn and fenced pastures that have been lovingly maintained. There is also a small equipment garage for additional storage for farm implements, ATVs or whatever your heart desires.
If you’re interested in this home, it will be going up for auction on July 9th through Platinum Luxury Auctions. To sweeten the deal, there is no reserve (so maybe I’ve got a shot!).
