The Gilded Age is in full swing at 495 George Hill Road, Lancaster, where the ‘John E. Thayer House’ is on the market for $1,250,000. Ready to be restored to its full glory, the Tudor Revival Mansion also has an underground bowling alley.

Built in 1883, the 8,709-square-foot granite and brownstone mansion sits on 6.16 rolling acres that include perfectly landscaped landscapes and pond views. Crafted from the finest materials, the 15-room home welcomes guests through an intricately carved ground floor that includes a grand staircase and hall with quarter oak floors and intricate board and batten paneling.

“The library has floor-to-ceiling walnut and lots of beautiful oak,” said John Petraglia of Petraglia Real Estate Services, who owns the property.

The ground floor features a living room filled with curved glass windows, walnut paneling, and a fireplace. The dining room, kitchen and study also have important oak features.

The house has a total of 8 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and 8 fireplaces.

Outside, the property’s spaces are just as grand.

“It reminded me a bit of Edith Wharton’s Mountain,” said Petraglia.

If you’re wondering why Thayer’s name sounds familiar, he was the son of Nathaniel Thayer Jr., who built Thayer Hall at Harvard University. John became an ornithologist and eventually he donated 28,000 skins and his 15,000 egg and nest collection to Harvard.

The property is being sold with a written covenant prohibiting further division.
