Stoney Pointe: Country living with convenience
Landmark Homes community in East Cocalico Township has move-in-ready home available, plus many options to custom build
Owning a brand-new home while still feeling part of a well-established community is not always possible, but it is in East Cocalico Township’s Stoney Pointe.
The Landmark Homes community in northeast Lancaster County seamlessly blends into its surrounding neighborhoods, and it will soon be home to a 3-acre township park. Stoney Pointe is also conveniently located just minutes from the Pennsylvania Turnpike, Route 222 and Adamstown, one of the nation’s top antiquing destinations. Yet its wooded vistas and large, one-third-acre lots offer the solitude of country living.
Now in its second phase, Stoney Pointe will have a total of 53 homes when complete. There are currently 21 home sites remaining. Homes start in the upper $200s. And with 16 different floor plans to choose from, featuring both one- and two-story designs and first- and second-floor owner’s suites, buyers have a multitude of options for customizing a home to perfectly fit their lifestyle.
For buyers who don’t want to wait, Stoney Pointe offers a quick move-in option: the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath Hunter. A two-story in the Arts and Crafts style, the Hunter’s exterior combines vertical and horizontal siding with stone, along with board and batten shutters and a carriage-style garage door. Inside, dramatic two-story ceilings in the foyer and family room lend to an open floor plan that extends not only from room to room, but from floor to floor, as well. The Hunter kitchen features granite countertops with tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances and a counter with bar seating that overlooks a breakfast area and the family room. The focal point of the family room is a cozy gas fireplace with floor-to-ceiling stone surround, framed on either side by floor-to-ceiling windows that let in copious amounts of natural light.The Hunter also features the increasingly-popular first-floor owner’s suite, which includes a truncated ceiling, private bath and large closet. The first floor also includes a study, a formal dining room with coffered ceiling and wainscoting, and a garage-entry mudroom/laundry room with built-in lockers. There is hardwood flooring in the foyer, dining room, kitchen and breakfast area. Upstairs, a flexible loft area overlooks the family room. The second floor also includes two additional bedrooms and a full bath. At 2,465 square feet, the Hunter is priced at $335,800.
Stoney Pointe has natural gas and public water and sewer. The community also has sidewalks and streetlights for easy neighborhood walking. Once completed, the park will include a playground, as well as areas for soccer, basketball and bocce. Stoney Pointe is in the Cocalico School District. Showings are by appointment.
