Dumbbell-Shaped Estate For Sale Offers Luxury Living In McKean Township


The centerpiece of an 11.69-acre estate for sale in the woods of McKean Township is a dumbbell-shaped house. Corridors connect the twin circular sections.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home at 9774 Silverthorn Road is owned by Erie businessman and entrepreneur Samuel P. “Pat” Black III and is on sale for $1,375,000.

The home is one of a kind, said Steve Szumigale, real estate partner at Re/Max Real Estate Group, Erie. Szumigale is the listing agent for the property.

“I’ve been to about 5,000 homes in 12 years, and my mom has been to 25,000 to 30,000 homes since 1990, and none of us have seen anything like that,” Szumigale said. “It’s amazing, it’s amazing.”
