Rare opportunity to own this absolutely stunning piece of Berks County history and architecture. Built in the 1890’s as the original Berkshire Country Club by then President of the Reading Railroad, George Baer, this stately home is an eclectic blend of late 19th century and early 21st century architecture and design, featuring abundant stained glass, woodwork and a 3 story open staircase. The present owners with over 30 year real estate development experience have taken the old home charm and meticulously updated all of the internal mechanicals, including wiring, plumbing & HVAC, along with flooring, walls, and window treatments to offer the most modern functionality and design possible. In 2006 the owners flawlessly blended a 5000+ square foot addition onto the original structure which included a 3 story elevator, an owners’ suite with a large wardrobe room, 2 spacious offices, an oversized 2 car attached garage, a great room with coffered ceilings, a commercial gourmet kitchen featuring high end appliances, a vestibule with personal cubicles, a theatre and game room in the lower level and an in ground pool. The addition brought the home to 6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms and 2 powder rooms and over 10,000 square feet of finished living space. This addition, paired with the old world charm of the original home, make this a once in a lifetime opportunity for the discerning buyer looking for an amazing Wyomissing location and a truly spectacular, unique home.
