Telescope Home Designed by Architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen Listed for $1.7M

Architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen, known for designing the Alumni Center in the University of Michigan and the home of the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in Martha’s Vineyard, has designed a house inspirited by telescopic lens extending towards the sky. This Lancaster property is now listed for $1.7 million.

This one of a kind property is featured in international publications. Set on a 2.7 acres lot, the house spans across 5,285 square feet, located at Eshelman Rd, Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

The residence includes three bedrooms and a master suite that has a dressing area, a free-standing soaking tub, and a double custom shower. With amenities such as the library, dinning room that features skylights, and a Cathedral/vaulted ceiling, the property embodies luxury and modernity all under one roof. Moreover, residents can enhance their dining experiences with ceramic counter tops, an eat-in kitchen and double sinks in the culinary area.

The property’s exterior is based on the traditional German farmhouse style.  The interior, however, is totally modern. Steel framed glass is spanned all over the three stories of the single family home, which is acts as the source of natural light. Two walls of the living room are made of glass and the two story patio is as grand as it can be.

This home reflects a peaceful atmosphere. The garden features a pond with a waterfall as well as walking trails for family strolls.
