Just Listed in the Poconos: Lakeside Cottage on Lake Wallenpaupack
This handsome, rustic-yet-comfortable house comes with 68 feet of lakeshore attached to its front yard.
Did you love the tranquil New England lake that served as the setting of the 1981 film On Golden Pond?
Whether or not these are now also your golden years, you now have an opportunity to live the idyll, Pennsylvania-style.
And this comfortable, rustic mid-century cottage right on Lake Wallenpaupack is the place where you can do it.
It sits on a curving section of land just below the center of the 13-mile-long lake, giving you both a 270-degree view of the lake and direct access to it. You can go boating, fishing, swimming and waterskiing whenever you feel like it in the summer, or snowmobiling, ice skating or ice fishing in the winter.
And when you’ve had your fill of outdoor fun, you can come inside and enjoy the many comforts of this Lake Wallenpaupack lakeside house for sale.
Starting with the living room, which boasts a two-story-high stone fireplace.
Large windows let you look out on the lake and skylights brighten the room with natural light.
Adjacent to the living room are a modern kitchen and a dining room that’s attached to it.
Four of this house’s five bedrooms are on the upper level, which is also at the level of the ground on this house’s sloping lot.
One of those bedrooms takes the form of a sleeping loft overlooking the kitchen. The fifth bedroom can be found in the basement along with the laundry and the house’s second full bathroom.
In front of the living room is a large covered front porch that extends out to an equally large (20 by 45 feet) Trex deck overlooking the lake.
As this house sits at the end of a wooded road, you can be assured of privacy, but this secluded lot in northern Pike County is far from remote: the ski slopes are a 20-minute drive away, and you’re a half-hour east of Scranton. From there, it’s a two-hour trip down the Turnpike Northeast Extension to Philadelphia.
Close by, yet a world away. Isn’t that what you want in a vacation home?
