No New Sewer Hook-Ups At Arrowhead Lake


Bad news if you haven't received a sewer hook up permit for your property in the Arrowhead Lake community yet: No new sewer permits will be issued until the the sewer company satisfies the DEP and gets their proper permitting in place. The Administration Office at Arrowhead Lake did not sound interested in divulging many details when I called them today, but I am going to go out on a limb and say that it has to do with the recent expansion of the sewer service area that the community had undertaken in the last several years. You may or may not know that they had been offering sewer tie-in rebate incentives to spur applications and, I assume, revenue. Now it could be a year before things are squared away, the permit moratorium is lifted and lot owners are able to hook in.

I found a few more details on another real estate blog but have not confirmed any of it. I recommend that potential lot purchasers and affected property owners contact the Arrowhead Lake Administration Office to find out exactly where they stand with all this. Obviously those trying to sell property or considering a new build in this Pocono Lake community will be most put out.

A hat tip goes out to Bradley for posting a question on Trulia and bringing this to my attention.

Still the Hottest Location in Penn Estates


Section C - A Distinctive Penn Estates Location

Just off of Stonehenge Drive in the Beacon Hill Section of Penn Estates, there are two cul-de-sac streets, surrounded by green-space (undeveloped land owned by the HOA) and offering some of the best locations in the community. Originally developed in the early 1980's with the discerning vacation property buyer in mind, this area was carefully planned by Cranberry Hill Corp. to cater to the tastes of the well-off second home purchasers who frequented the area when the community was young. Many of these original 'settlers' still maintain homes throughout the community. This particular area of Section C, however, has always maintained its distinctive appeal to those looking for a special setting.

Easy Access to Amenities on Foot or Bicycle

The properties here are centrally located and within walking distance to the main amenity complex (which houses the pools, community center, the basketball & tennis courts, softball field, and the Country Kitchen) and all three lakes. So if sports is your thing, or if swimming, sunbathing, fishing or boating is more your style, check out these properties within close proximity of all this and more!

Web 42 Canterbury Lane is a 1/2 acre wooded lot, the perfect parcel for building your dream home or vacation getaway. Central water and sewer is available, making this one of the most affordable options for new construction in the Stroudsburg School District. Land only $67,500
