THE BUILDING RAGE AT LAKE WALLENPAUPACK . . . By George P. Irish, Re/Max of Lake Wallenpaupack-North

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lake Wallenpaupack-North



Existing lakefront homes, built on Lake Wallenpaupack in the late 1940's and 1950's are primarily lakefront summer cottages or cabins and are now prime targets for folks who want to build their dream home on the lake.

Most of the existing cottages on the lake were built for summer use only with no insulation and little heat source, if any.  The cottages or cabins were built on piers, had inadequate plumbing and electrical systems and could not be utilized as a four-season home.  These cottages and cabins were built on prime lakefront parcels at Lake Wallenpaupack.

 With vacant land values exceeding $500,000 for a lakefront lot and with a cottage or cabin that might be valued at $50,000 - this creates an opportunity!

People today want to be on the lake or close to the lake with views of the lake.

Now comes "TEARDOWNS." 

Builders todaY will demolish a teardown and custom build a new home.  Most 'teardowns' are built with the most advanced building materials and are designed to serve the owner in later years --  possibily their retirement home. 

These homes consist of a minimum of 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a fireplace and a 2-car garage.

George P. Irish and his team, consiting of Beth DerricK and Liz Smith, invite you to visit the lake. 

We may be able to help you find the perfect lake house.
