Old World meets new at Stoudtburg Village

Keystone offers 4 floor plans in this mixed-use Adamstown community

With Octoberfest season upon us, many turn their thoughts to the charm of Old World Bavaria. But for those who would like to live in a quaint German village all year long, they need look no farther than their own backyard.
Stoudtburg Village in Adamstown is a mixed-use community on 27 acres designed to mirror that Old World charm.
The brainchild of Ed and Carol Stoudt, owners of the nearby brewery, restaurant, antiques mall and market, Stoudtburg Village was inspired by the town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber in the Bavarian region of Germany.
Entering Stoudtburg Village is like being transported to another world, with its open plaza and fountain, unique shops, green space, walking trails, and large pond full of colorful koi and cat fish.
The homes themselves reflect that same Bavarian inspiration, with exteriors featuring vertical siding and half-timber accents.
There are currently 65 homes in Stoudtburg Village, and Keystone Custom Homes is now building the remaining homes in the community.

“Stoudtburg Village is providing beautiful architecture at an unbelievably low price point that’s truly unique to Lancaster County and the surrounding Philadelphia suburbs,” says Mike Klaips, Lancaster sales manager for Keystone Custom Homes.
Keystone introduced its new single-family Greta Vintage model in Stoudtburg Village this spring, and it went on to sweep its division in this year’s Parade of Homes, winning best of show as well as best exterior, interior design, kitchen, bath, landscaping and best decorated.
At just over 1,900 square feet, and featuring a highly desirable first-floor owner’s suite, the Greta is one of four brand-new floor plans Keystone is offering in Stoudtburg Village, all designed to capture its unique charm.
The Hans, at 1,659 square feet, includes three bedrooms and two and a half baths. The Elyse, at 2,359 square feet, has four bedrooms and two and a half baths.
Keystone also offers a duplex option, the Finn, with three bedrooms, one and a half baths, and 1,528 square feet of living space.
Homes start in the $170s, and fall incentives are available exclusively for buyers in Stoudtburg Village. Only 11 home sites remain in the first phase.
Keystone is currently building a new designer model home, another Greta, which is scheduled for completion in December. The currently award-winning model, at 10 Bittendorf Way, has sold, but will be available to tour through the fall. Open house hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.
Stoudtburg Village is located in the Cocalico School District. In addition to its own amenities, the community 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 and the Adamstown Community Pool.
