Modern custom home for sale in Greentown
Located on a hill with a stunning view of Lake Wallenpaupack, this stunning home is waiting for your input to become a reality.
I imagine some of you reading this feature have gone searching Poconos real estate listings looking for that perfect second home, only to have your search end in disappointment.
However, you should not be disappointed today, because you will have the opportunity to make this modern Greentown custom home for sale your dream home.
That’s because it hasn’t been built yet.
This home will turn heads the moment it’s completed, because while it reflects the contemporary style of many Poconos homes, it takes that modernist aesthetic to the next level.
Listing agent Eric Erhardt of the Hawley office of Davis R. Chant Realtors points out that while this is true, it deviates significantly from the Poconos aesthetic. “It’s like something you’d see in the Rocky Mountains,” he says.
He says this was to be expected, given the owner of the lot.
“Justin Genzlinger is always on the cutting edge of what’s new in building design,” he says.
Genzlinger is the owner and CEO of Settlers Hospitality Group, a local Poconos family-owned restaurant and lodging chain. While Settlers is known for managing restaurants, hotels, and rental properties, they also do real estate development on the side, and this property is an example of that.
Genzlinger worked with an architect to produce the design you see in these drawings, and he will work with you to build this home to your specifications.
Of course, like any home in the Poconos with a great view, the house was designed to take advantage of it. Its level faces Lake Wallenpaupack, while its back faces the uphill side of its sloping plot of land.
This rear view does show the amenities that would come with this home, including a patio in front of the main entrance and an in-ground pool. The site plan also calls for a detached garage in the backyard.
The open-plan main floor features huge floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the front deck and lake. A full-height stone fireplace serves as a second focal point for the living and dining room.
The kitchen can be customized to suit your desires. Natural wood cabinets? Those will work. Black lacquer? Glossy white finish? The choice is yours, and you can also discuss what hardware you want to equip it with. The kitchen also has a large pantry. There is also a cloakroom for your guests behind it.
Below all this is a downstairs family room with large doors opening onto the patio. Chances are, you can turn a stone wall into a second fireplace. You will also find a second cloakroom here.
The design divides the house into two wings connected by a hallway. The five bedrooms are located in the west wing. Both bedrooms upstairs have decks and en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom, shown in this rendering, has a walk-in closet and a large bathroom that you can make as luxurious as you want.
The three bedrooms downstairs also have en-suite bathrooms and outdoor patios. This is what you will see from all floors and patios:
You may want to remove some trees to see more of the lake. Since this home sits on 5.5 acres, you’ll be able to replace it with trees elsewhere on your property.
Another nice thing about this modern custom home for sale in Greentown: It’s not located in one of those gated communities, so it has no landlord association fees or club dues. However, you will be able to enjoy boating on Lake Wallenpaupack, as settlers have a boat slip at nearby Lighthouse Harbor Marina to come with this property.
Of course, all of this comes with a price. This price may take your breath away, given what Poconos homes often sell for. But, as Erhardt points out, you’re not buying a typical Poconos home here. These days, lakefront properties command higher prices.
As they say, you get what you pay for. Here, you are paying for a truly outstanding property with cutting-edge design in a prime location overlooking Lake Wallenpaupack.
Bathrooms: 5 full, 2 half
cubic feet: 5,712
selling price: $2,500,000
Other things: Since this home faces north with a roof that slopes south, you may also want to consider using solar panels on the roof to save money on electricity. And if for some reason this house doesn’t float your boat, you can always order another design. Or you could just buy the 11-acre lot that includes this lot for $349,000 and call it your future second home.
