Bishop Woods offers secluded convenience

Keystone has only 5 sites remaining in current phase of Elizabethtown neighborhood

Bishop Woods in West Donegal Township offers the best of both worlds:
A feeling that you’re in a sylvan retreat miles from civilization and the convenience of knowing that shopping, dining and major travel routes are really only minutes from your front door.
This picturesque community, with wooded home sites ranging in size from just over 1 acre to 8 or more acres, is five minutes from downtown Elizabethtown. It’s also close to routes 283, 743 and 230, making it an easy drive to Lancaster, Harrisburg and Hershey.
Keystone Custom Homes, the exclusive builder in Bishop Woods, has a few opportunities left to build a sylvan retreat in the community’s highly desirable second phase. With 13 sites already sold this year, only five homesites remain.
Construction on a third phase could begin as early as spring 2018.
Keystone offers 18 three- to five-bedroom floor plans ranging in size from 1,809 to 3863 square feet, including six with first-floor owner’s suites. With so many options, it’s easy to personalize a dream home that’s just right for you.

If you prefer a ready-made dream home, the designer model home at 106 Freys Road is now for sale.
The home, a four-bedroom Augusta Manor with a luxurious first-floor owner’s retreat, features 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 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.
The Augusta Manor model home is priced at $479,990.
