Just Listed in the Poconos: Custom Contemporary in Pocono Pines
Woods, lakes and streams — aren’t these what you come to the Poconos to enjoy? You’ll find them all right outside your door or very close by here.
Even if you don’t enjoy skiing at all, chances are you enjoy the Poconos for everything else it has to offer: lush forests, sparkling lakes, pristine mountain streams.
All of these abound in Pocono Pines, an upscale community in Monroe County’s upper reaches. And in the case of this handsome Pocono Pines contemporary house for sale, two of those three items can be found right on your property.
As you can see from the photo above, this contemporary residence sits on a nearly half-acre wooded lot that backs onto Upper Tunkhannock Creek near where it flows from Stillwater Lake. However, because of where you will be living if you buy this house, you will spend your lakeside leisure time not on Stillwater Lake but on Lake Naomi, the heart of the resort community to which this house belongs.
The house itself is a real looker, and it has a lot to offer within its walls. From its two-story foyer, you walk past the formal dining room into a striking great room with a vaulted ceiling, a full-height stone fireplace and doors that open onto the full-length rear deck overlooking the creek.
Off the great room lie the very nicely equipped kitchen and the casual dining area, and off the casual dining area is a screened-in sun porch. A corridor that runs under the stairs to the second floor connects the kitchen and the formal dining room.
This 19-year-old custom-built Pocono Pines contemporary house for sale is also designed for convenience, as its primary bedroom is also located on the main floor. Its bathroom has dual vanities, a separate toilet room with shower stall and a jetted tub.
The other three bedrooms are on the second floor. All have vaulted ceilings, and one overlooks the creek. You could turn one into a home office and improve the quality of your work life, as the current owner has done.
Of course, you could spend your free time just relaxing by the creek and taking in the beauty of your surroundings. But why do only that when there’s lots to do close by? Nearby state game lands offer hunting opportunities, and you can go hiking the trails at Big Pocono State Park, skiing at next-door Camelback Mountain Resort, or outlet shopping in Tannersville, just down the road from both. You also have the option of joining the Lake Naomi Club, a private club offering access to the lake for boating and fishing, swimming pools, golf, fine dining and more. Lake Naomi residents are automatically eligible to join.
