House for Sale
In Shoresh, Jerusalem Mountains, Israel
The house is located on a large lot with views of Jerusalem’s mountains to the east and the valley to the west. The house is built to blend in with the hillsides vineyards and trees. This unique location offers a pastoral “Tuscan” feel and life style with quick accesses to the largest Israeli urban areas.
The house was built about 10 years ago with the idea of blending into the landscape.
The heart of the house is a big patio that the house surrounds. The house creates a dialog with its natural surroundings and brings the outside in. For this purpose the house was built in the local Arab building traditions with local stone from Hebron.
The interior is also built from natural materials: local marble stone, iron railings, wood and mortar stairs. The kitchen is built entirely from oak wood and so are the floors in the bedrooms level.
The size of the house is 277 sqaure meter = 2981’ square feet. It’s divided into a ground floor, a second floor and a basement that’s a separate unit. There is a single car garage with plenty of extra storage. Despite the house’s natural appearance it offers technological comforts like central heating (using hot water through the floor), electric blinds, split central air and a sophisticated security system. All the windows are made of steel looking aluminum for perfect insolation. All the indoor pluming, including under the floors, is reliable and safe copper.
The large yard is mostly open to views and is filled with fruit trees.
Most times of the year, the weather permits out doors seating and the enjoyment of the grand views and the clear air of the Judea Mountains. The large lawn outside the patio is a great space for kids to play, hosting family or large gatherings.
Moshav Shoresh is located near highway 1.
It’s about a 20-minute drive to Jerusalem, Modiin and highway 6.
It’s about a 45-minute drive to Tel Aviv.
This location is close to all the major arteries in Israel yet affords a quite country life style.
The house is located in the newer neighborhood of Shoresh. The community here is a unique one and includes public figures, businessmen, doctors and lawyers.
The community, just like the surroundings, is quiet, friendly and enjoys a good school system, swimming pool, and other activities and services.
