Logged In on the 17th Hole in Pittsgrove for $774.5K

This home's name means "beautiful wood" in Italian. That pretty much sums it up.

Let’s see…I got off Route 55 down by Vineland, then got onto Garden Road, then took a left onto Parvins Mill Road, then a right onto Running Deer Trail.

So tell me how I wound up in Yellowstone?

You didn’t. Instead, the developer of this one-of-a-kind home overlooking the 17th hole at the Running Deer Golf Club brought a little bit of Yellowstone to you.

Literally: this custom log home, one of only three such homes built in the country, was built by carpenters flown in from Montana. It’s called “Bel Legno,” which is Italian for “beautiful wood.”

That’s putting it mildly. In style and spirit, this home recalls the grand lodges of our Western national parks. In function, it’s your own magnificent year-round vacation lodge.

It’s outfitted for recreation and entertaining with features like a home theater with stadium seating, a free-form saltwater pool with waterfall and slide, multiple decks and terraces and a wet bar in the living room. Its chef-quality kitchen is likewise equipped to handle your visitors, with two dishwashers, a large cooktop and a Wolf double oven. And with five large bedrooms, you can even invite your favored friends and guests to spend the night.

And when you need your own private retreat, the master suite features a sitting room, a two-sided gas fireplace, a private balcony and a bathroom with a whirlpool tub.

Finally, it comes with access to the golf course.

All of this will make you think you’re 2,000 miles from here, but Philly’s just a 30-minute drive away up Route 55.



BATHS: 3 full, 1 half


SALE PRICE: $774,500

OTHER STUFF: This home is also equipped with a whole-house Sonos sound system that you can control from your smartphone or laptop.
