Water Gap Home Is Not Sold...Yet!

45 Minsi Road, Delaware Water Gap

Situated on a corner lot with mature plantings and a rockin' chair porch from which to enjoy it all, this home has remarkably spacious rooms despite it's seemingly small stature. There are some wood floors under the carpeting, and the dining room has built-in curios, typical of the craftmanship found in homes built in the 1950's. There is also a nice big kitchen which opens to a sun room facing the back yard.

There are lots of bonus features here including a basement, a carport and outside storage sheds. And, the walk-up attic could easily be finished in to a studio, home office or an extra bedroom.

A Poconos Walkable Community

Water Gap is a unique location, much-loved and well-known for it's small town atmosphere. It's famous for it's yearly jazz festival and other cultural activities. Additionally, most homes, including this one, are within walking distance to the town's main attractions, the post office, places of worship, stores and restaurants and more. Also, hike the Appalachian Trail from the access point a few blocks away!

Commuting And Traveling Are Easy From Here

Located just over the border from New Jersey, this town offers great access to Route 80 for those who need to commute to that state or to New York City. Travel options include commuter bus service which serve most of the major stations. If you prefer scenic driving, follow route 611 south along the river and be inspired!

Priced under $200,000, this home is ideal for 1st time homebuyers, retirees looking to downsize or anyone looking for a modest home that is a good value.

Open House This Weekend: 5 Bedrooms Under $200k

Multiple Homes Open For Viewing This Weekend

In case you haven't heard, the Penn Estates Community Open House is happening this weekend. Bring your friends along for this trip to the Poconos because there are upwards of 15 homes available to tour during this day-long event...there's something for everybody!

Don't Miss 161 Overlook Drive in The Highlands

The Highlands, the fancy-schmancy name for Section A of Penn Estates, is an excellent location. The first section on the left after you enter the gate at the main Hallet Road entrance, The Highlands is conveniently located to the main amenity complex which includes the pools, the Community Center and the Country Kitchen. This section also abuts Highland Lake, the most popular of the community's three lakes and home to our beautiful beachfront amenities.

The property at 161 Overlook Drive is very close to this lake and overlooks a lovely stream, which provides a peaceful soundtrack to outdoor gatherings on the 30 foot deck.

One of the other special things about this home is that it offers one level living...and then some! Three of the bedrooms, including the privately situated master suite, are on the main level with the kitchen and other public living spaces - the perfect ranch style floor plan! But then there is the bonus of two more bedrooms on the second floor creating another 'wing' for extended family, hobby areas or home office space. All of this artfully arranged space accommodates every need: privacy where necessary & enough rooms to allow for unique lifestyles. The sparkling white kitchen isn't the only room that welcomes you...there is lots of light thru-out! As a matter of fact, the entire home and property are lovingly maintained and warm & inviting.  Featuring many extras found in more expensive properties, this home is a great value for those who need a lot of space on a small budget.
