The Poconos is a natural wonderland just minutes from quaint towns and thriving cultural communities … just 71 miles from New York!
The price of buying a newly constructed home starts from around $175,000, for a three bedroom house with walk-in closets as large as a child’s bedroom in Manhattan … and master bedrooms bigger than studio apartments costing more than $500,000 in the Murray Hill neighbourhood of NYC.
You can select from woods surrounded by parks and nature preserves, old barns, creeks and historic mills or more contemporary “neighbourhoods” also currently being pioneered by newcomers from the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens looking for an easier life outside of New York City.
The market for historic houses remains strong in the Poconos with old Victorian homes in Stroudsburg costing between $300,000 and $400,000, while farmhouses throughout the region start from $250,000 upwards depending on the amount of land and condition. Fortunately, renovations are not a problem as many builders in the area focus on historic structures and renovations work.
When you buy in the Poconos, you buy more than a house … you’re buying a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle package.
Once you get here and breathe the fresh air and see the houses and understand the low cost of buying in the Pocono’s the decision becomes very easy.
Some of the charm of the Poconos is in the approach. Martz Trailways runs express buses to most Poconos towns from the Port Authority at 42nd St. and Eighth Ave. A one-way local fare to Delaware Water Gap, a central stop with parking, costs $297.75 for 20 trips, which equals just $14.88 per trip. The buses have wireless Internet and on a good day, it’s less than 90 minutes travel time.
