Featured Business of the Month

Liberty Homes

“When we build, let us think that we build forever." Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone.” These words were penned by John Ruskin, an English art critic from the Victorian era. At Liberty Homes Custom Builders. we have merged this thinking into the How and Why we build homes. In our experience, most homeowners, and renters, value homes that are comfortable, healthy, affordable, sustainable, energy efficient and a safe place for relaxation. 

WHY here and NOW in the POCONOS?

The Pocono Mountains have long been defined as an ideal location being just a short drive from Philadelphia, New Jersey, Delaware and New York. A place where families and friends can reconnect. A place of solitude when needed and exhilarating activities when desired. A place to create new environments and change lives.

The ANSWER, because the Pocono Mountains are evolving. While still offering quiet places to find respite, exciting new projects on the horizon are making the area a sound investment. Whether for a VACATION HOME to later settle in and retire or to invest, in the Poconos, it is easy to find a desirable four-season full time or vacation destination.

WHY Liberty Homes Custom Builders? Since 1985, we have been helping folks build their homes. We can help with floor plans that match your lifestyle, present and future. We can help find a location where you will be comfortable.

Contact us at 570-646-4600 or visit us at www.libertyhomespa.com to discover how we may be able to help with your research into owning a home in the POCONOS.
