Just Listed in the Poconos: Contemporary Mansion in Tannersville

Just Listed in the Poconos: Contemporary Mansion in Tannersville

Do you hanker for the glitz and bling of the ’80s? This period piece has your name on it. Surprisingly, it’s aged very gracefully. In some places, the Poconos feel like a huge suburb with forests interspersed. This truly unique contemporary house for sale at 126 Windy Hill Dr., Tannersville, PA 18372, certainly looks like it might fit in perfectly in a suburban estate subdivision — and guess what? It’s in one.

This Tannersville contemporary house for sale is about as far from that vision as one can get. On the contrary: This house aims squarely at those who come to the Poconos hoping to bring the city with them, only with woods, mountains and ski slopes nearby.

In the case of this house, the ski slopes in question are those of Camelback Resort , a short drive through the Pocono Creek valley from here. Now, contemporary architecture has a close, strong relationship with ski resorts in this country, but usually, the types of contemporary houses you find near the slopes are A-frames or informal, woodsy cottages.

This huge 1980s throwback is nothing like those at all. Instead, it takes you not to Alpine slopes but to Studio 54.

If the flash and glitz of the Disco Decade appeals to you, get yourself up to Tannersville right away to scope out this house. Built right around the end of the disco era, in 1985, it has aged surprisingly well.

The view you see above is of the rear of the house, which faces Sullivan Trail and the Pocono Creek valley. Rear deck and pool It’s quite likely that in winter, you will enjoy a clear view of the slopes at Camelback from this house’s expansive rear deck and pool. Sunroom View of pool deck from sunroom Next to the deck and pool is one of those Disco Decade spaces, a huge sunroom, filled with mirrors, windows, skylights and a marble tile floor, that spans the width of the main floor. Living room A set of semicircular stairs leads to the mirror-lined entrance to the living room, a more subdued but no less contemporary space. A short hallway that passes a closet connects it to the house’s dramatic two-story-high foyer, which either the photographer didn’t photograph or the listing agent forgot to upload to the listing.
