Why This Lot Is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it includes over 200′ of frontage along the Calkins Creek on a private township road, only minutes away from the Delaware River towns of Honesdale, PA and Narrowsburg, NY. The parcel includes an existing gravel driveway and cleared building areas.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This project site is divided by the town road. The smaller portion of the land is located along the creek. This would be an ideal location for an ADU along the water or a close as allowed. The main dwelling would be on the larger portion of the land. The change in elevation allows the main dwelling to overlook the lower portion of the property.


Wayne County of Pennsylvania sits at the Northeast corner of the state, along the New York border. Spanning across 751 square miles, Wayne County is home to hiking trails, rivers perfect for fishing, and areas for bird watching, like the Van Scott Nature Reserve of the Delaware Highlands Conservancy. This county, whose seat is the town of Honesdale, has a population of 51,155.

Milanville is tucked between Narrowsburg, NY and Honesdale, PA. The town of Honesdale was originally known as “Dyberry Forks,” and was the terminus of the D&H Canal, which ran 108 miles to Rondout, New York. Often referred to as the “Birthplace of the American Railroad,” Honesdale welcomed the first steam locomotive to run on US commercial tracks in 1829. Today, visitors to this Poconos town can enjoy historic buildings, museums, markets, eateries, breweries and boutiques downtown.

Land Prep Estimate : $30,000 - $45,000
