Bishop Woods offers both seclusion and convenience

Choose Keystone’s designer model or build on home sites of an acre or more in this West Donegal Township neighborhood

Bishop Woods is a neighborhood for all seasons — from the picturesque, snow-dusted trees of winter to the flora and fauna of summer.
Its wooded home sites of an acre or more offer a feeling of peaceful seclusion. Yet this West Donegal Township community is just minutes from downtown Elizabethtown and an easy drive to Lancaster, Harrisburg and Hershey, making it a great choice for those who want privacy as well as convenience.
With spring just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to start planning a sylvan retreat. Keystone Custom Homes, the exclusive builder in Bishop Woods, offers a variety of opportunities to do just that.
Currently, there are 14 home sites remaining in the newest phase of the community, which opened last fall.
With 18 floor plans ranging in size from 1,809 to 3928 square feet, and home sites from one to seven acres, it’s easy to personalize a dream home that’s just right for you.

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 also for sale.
A former Parade of Homes entry, 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 Rutherford gas fireplace. The adjacent breakfast area opens to a backyard deck, perfect for enjoying that 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 $453,162.
Bishop Woods is located in the Elizabethtown School District, with prices starting from the $280s.
Model home hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays.
