Sal Caruso - REMAX Distinctive
410 Laurel Dr


Live where the 3rd most important businessman in Pennsylvania lived! Built & owned by the former President/CEO of AMP Incorporated, the owner was the Presidential Appointee to the Advisory Council on U.S. Trade Policy and a member of the Executive Committee of the U.S. Council of International Business. Mr. Hudson built this home in Laurel Woods of Hershey for his wife, and they raised their 3 sons there. Designed by Mrs. Hudson and her brother (the architect Donald K. Royal) this handsome Colonial-style home was built by Ralph Luttrell & Bill Whitlock. The Hudson family now resides close to grandchildren in the MidWest and are ready to pass this regal home to the next Hershey family. To appreciate the full character and beauty of this unique property, schedule a tour today. A few sneak previews include a secret spiral staircase from the sunroom to the bedroom (also useful during entertaining to grab something inconspicuously upstairs), a Count Rumford fireplace & exposed Chestnut beams from a log cabin, walnut bookcases from the mansion of Vance McCormack (former mayor of Harrisburg), a secure wine cell/safe room with a steel locking door in the basement, an Asian-influenced marble master bathroom, tiles from Mexico, and more... The extended Hudson family has been hard at work preparing this home for new owners. For a full list of upgrades, contact the listing agent. In summary, the home has a new efficiency HVAC installed in May 2018, new quartz countertops & hardware, subway tile backsplash on wet bar, butler's pantry, and kitchen, new electric breaker panel replaced in May 2018 along with switches, all new paint (including trim), and new white outlet covers. The home has been professionally painted and cleaned. Covered by the Homestead Tax Act (for lower taxes), other features of this magnificent home include geothermal heat, 9-year-old roof, solid cherry cabinets, finished basement w/office, 4 fireplaces (2 wood stove accesses) & 2 chimneys, wood workshop, 2nd floor laundry with drain and tile, flagstone patio, recessed lighting, tall ceilings, and abundant natural light. The mature landscaping includes laurel trees, hollies, and lady slippers (a species of localized orchid). This home is on a corner lot in a caul-de-sac with wonderful neighbors. Come see for yourself!
