The Riverstone Estate, originally owned by the Fox family of Pennsylvania, descendants of George Fox, the founder of the Quaker religion is listed for sale by current owners. The 1200 acre property nestled in the Allegany Mountains, is the host to a stone mansion and 26 other structures. The sprawling estate comes with over 40 covered parking spaces, extensive equestrian complex, carriage house, greenhouse, aviary, additional luxury homes and functional barns. The main house consists of 10,000 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 5 full and 4 half bathrooms. Mineral rights are part of the purchase, which in Pennsylvania is a must with their complicated mineral right laws.
The property was continuously in the Fox family ownership until 1964. Aside from the mansion, the Fox’s built carriage houses, stables, an ice house, a greenhouse, barns, and a log cabin used as a play area for the Fox children. Ownership changed several times until Arthur and Patricia Steffee purchased it in 1996. Steffee’s carried out extensive renovations to interiors and exteriors by adding state-of-art amenities.
Listing agent on record is Sharon M. Stahlsmith of Howard Hanna.
