Enjoy Old World charm in Stoudtburg Village

Keystone Custom Homes debuts its first model in Adamstown community

Enjoying life in an Old World German village doesn’t require a move to Europe. In fact, it doesn’t even require a move out of Lancaster County.

Stoudtburg Village in Adamstown is a mixed-use community on 27 acres designed to mirror that Old World charm.

“I think this is one of the best kept secrets in Lancaster County,” says Ben Rutt, director of marketing for Keystone Custom Homes, which is now building the remaining homes in the community.

The brainchild of Ed and Carol Stoudt, owners of the nearby brewery, restaurant, antiques mall and market, this quaint hamlet inspired by the town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber in Germany currently includes 65 homes, a restaurant, green space, a large pond full of colorful koi and cat fish, walking paths and unique shops.

In addition to its own amenities, Stoudtburg Village is in the heart of Antiques Capital USA, putting treasure hunting at your doorstep. It’s also conveniently located just minutes from the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

Keystone is offering four brand-new floor plans in Stoudtburg Village, designed to capture its unique charm. They include a duplex and an option with a first-floor master, and range in size from 1,528 square feet to 2,359 square feet.

Homes start in the $170s.

Keystone recently completed its first model home in Stoudtburg Village, a Greta Vintage at 10 Bittendorf Way, Reinholds. The home will be a stop on the upcoming Parade of Homes tour June 17-25.

“Like all homes in Stoudtburg Village, the Greta has a Bavarian-inspired exterior, with a mix of vertical siding and half-timber accents,” Rutt says.

The Greta model has three bedrooms, including a first-floor owner’s suite with cathedral ceiling, walk-in closet, and private bath with tile shower and double-bowl vanity.

The bright and open eat-in kitchen features a half-wall multi-level granite countertop with bar seating, stainless steel appliances and a double-door pantry.

The first floor also has a spacious family room with gas fireplace, a half bath and hardwood floors throughout. The dining area opens to a large backyard patio perfect for entertaining.

Upstairs, the Greta has two additional bedrooms, each with walk-in closets, a full bath, and a large loft area that can serve a multitude of uses, such as an additional family room.

Like all homes in the village, the Greta has a rear-load garage.

At over 2,000 square feet, the Greta model is priced at $234,990.

You don’t have to wait until the Parade of Homes tour to visit the new Greta model at Stoudtburg Village. Regular model home hours are noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, 1 to 6 p.m. Monday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.

Stoudtburg Village is in the Cocalico School District. For more information, call 877-513-0385 or visit www.keystonecustomhome.com.
