New opportunities await in peaceful Bishop Woods

Keystone opens new phase in West Donegal community; model now for sale

Bishop Woods offers the best of both words: the peaceful seclusion of a wooded retreat and the convenience of an easy commute to where you want to be.
This quiet neighborhood in West Donegal Township is just minutes from downtown Elizabethtown and an easy drive to Lancaster, Harrisburg and Hershey, but it feels more like a sylvan getaway, with each home site on an acre or more of wooded land.
Keystone Custom Homes is the exclusive builder in Bishop Woods, and with a new phase now open there has never been a better time to build the home of your dreams.
The new phase includes 18 home sites from one to seven acres. Two have already been sold. Floor plans range in size from 2,075 to over 3,863 square feet. Most will have side-loading garages, and some home sites will accommodate walk-out basements.
Keystone also offers a host of design options to make every home unique.
Many of those options are on display in the designer model home, an Augusta Manor at 106 Freys Road. And for those who prefer a ready-made dream home, the model is now for sale.
An entry on this year’s Parade of Homes, the two-story Augusta Manor features four bedrooms and 3,261 square feet, of living space.

The Classic Kitchen features a walk-in pantry, stainless steel appliances, shaker style maple cabinetry, hardwood flooring and granite countertops.
An oversized island with bar seating overlooks a spacious family room that includes a gas fireplace with granite surround. The adjacent breakfast area opens to a backyard deck, perfect for enjoying the flora and fauna.
Large windows with transoms in both the family room and breakfast area allow in plenty of natural light.
The first-floor owner’s suite off the kitchen has two walk-in closets and a private Venetian bath with soaking tub, walk-in tile shower, double-bowl vanity and private water closet.
The first floor also includes a formal dining room, private study, powder room, and laundry/mudroom conveniently located next to the owner’s suite.
Upstairs, a generous loft area provides extra family living space, and three additional bedrooms — each with its own walk-in closet — share a second full bath.
“Part of the appeal of the Augusta floor plan is its flexibility,”, says Ben Rutt, Director of Marketing at Keystone Custom Homes. Buyers have the option of converting the loft area to a fifth bedroom or adding a bonus room over the garage. The Augusta also has a wraparound porch option.
The model home is priced at $467,412.
Bishop Woods is located in the Elizabethtown School District, with prices starting from the $310s.
Model home hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays.
Keystone will host a seminar for first-time homebuyers at the Bishop Woods model home from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 12. To register, contact David Wong at 717-598-8054 or
