12824 Peter Moore Lane, De Soto

5000SF Mid-Century Modern ranch on 38 ACRES! Originally built in 1951 by local hotelier. Lovingly cared for by the Franciscan Sisters since 1985, it has served as their retreat property where they have communed with God and nature. This distinctive home was designed by Hari Van Hoefen and was carefully placed on the ridge overlooking fields & forest. Many unique features including a period kitchen with Muelcher cabinets, Corning Ware range, and SS wall oven and Thermoron warmer! A second period kitchen features a stunning GE kitchen with built-ins that should be in a museum! Quiet Serenity in the Chapel with stained glass from world renowned Emil Frei. Stocked 2 acre pond, walking trails, fantastic greenhouse complete with water/heat, and fields (originally for an airstrip) could easily be pasture or a winery! A true Jefferson County Gem deserving of a careful preservation! Seller is willing to sell home with less acreage to make it more affordable for you!
