Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it offers a very gentle slope from the road down to where it is level at the water’s edge. This 5+ acre parcel has frontage on the beautiful Duck Harbor Pond, with the ability to launch your kayak or canoe directly into the water! It is located within a community created for year-round outdoor adventure, from ATV trails to hiking and boating. Underground utilities are included!

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

We would propose that a single straight driveway be installed that would terminate at the build site. Selective clearing is required to make way for the main dwelling. We would also propose an ADU down by the water front which could be accessible by walking path.


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.

Equinunk is a village in Buckingham and Manchester Townships in Wayne County. The village stands at an elevation of 900 ft, where the Equinunk Creek flows into the Delaware River. While Equinunk is situated on the southern shore, the northern shore carries a commercial, single-track rail line which has been in operation since 1869. Due to its proximity to the tracks, cargo train enthusiasts from around the country come to Equinunk to view the often 50+ car trains roll along the winding Delaware River.

Land Prep Estimate : $50,000 - $75,000
