Beautiful log homes are built all around the world, but when you have one built especially for you, it will seem like the most prized home ever. This log home was actually a prized log home to Log Home Living too, as it was the winner of our Reader's Home Showcase Contest. The log home located in Pennsylvania is a luxurious rustic retreat that everyone loves. The home sits on 4.2 acres of country property which also makes it a very favourable home for Joanna and Larry Royer. They love to have this log home as a place for family and friends to come and visit and to enjoy the breathtaking scenery that surrounds them. The surroundings include lots of wildlife that would be very interesting to witness as well as beautiful trees and even some farmland too. The sunsets here are amazing, to say the least, and the log home sits on a little ridge which sets them up for amazing views. The home has a very traditional home design, with an attached garage and multiple dormers as well as a carriage house over the garage. From the back, the home is even more spectacular with a large chimney and lots of windows to take in the beautiful scenery.
Inside, they went with a rustic country style to make it feel down to earth and very homey. The country style kitchen is the best place to cook up amazing meals with all of the best appliances included. There's even a wine cellar for them to store their wine in to share and enjoy. The kitchen also features lots of bar seating, making it the perfect place to enjoy breakfast or chat while someone's making dinner. The stove top is incorporated into the island with a hood range over it, so that would be a great place to cook and stay in touch with guests. The kitchen also features plenty of cabinets for storage, a double door fridge, an oven and a microwave mounted on the wall. They also have an entire area dedicated to making coffee and tea, which is great when you have guests. The living room is the perfect place to settle in with the fire blazing and enjoy a glass of wine or two. The stonework surrounding the fireplace is also expertly done and goes well with the rustic and natural style of the home. The high ceilings overhead make the smaller living area feel expansive, and the views out of the windows are amazing.
There are a couple of guest rooms which are quite inviting, and there is also an entertainment area which gives everyone a place to enjoy some game time. The master bedroom is a masterpiece with its own fireplace for romantic evenings and a lovely ensuite bathroom. What a great design with so many wonderful features.
