Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it’s 2.5 acres of lush wooded land is located in prime Pocono territory, with the nearby town of East Stroudsburg just a stone’s throw away. The land is gently sloping, has beautiful stone wall accents, and nestled within a quiet no-dues subdivision.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This project would begin by establishing access with a driveway. Clearing would be required from the road to the build site. Selective clearing of trees and ground grading for both driveway and the build site is necessary. Once this is completed additional clearing for a septic and well would be next. The home site would be far enough back from the road to ensure privacy and to enjoy the forested area of the parcel near the rear.


Monroe County, known as the “eastern gateway to the Poconos,” is home to more than 168,000. This county, whose seat is the city of Stroudsburg, spans across 617 square miles and includes numerous attractions like Camelback Ski Resort, Kalahari Indoor Waterpark, and Pocono Raceway. Monroe county offers hiking, biking, skiing, equestrian trails, and other outdoor activities along its 10.3 miles of the Appalachian Trail.


East Stroudsburg is located in the Poconos region of the state. Originally known as "Dansbury", East Stroudsburg was renamed for geographic reasons when the Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western Railroad opened a station in town. Despite its name being derivative of its bordering borough, Stroudsburg, it has almost twice the population. East Stroudsburg is the largest municipality in Monroe County.

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