What if you could find a home that made you feel as though you were on a permanent vacation? If you dream of the mountains, privacy, and acreage, this home for sale in Bear Creek, PA may be your wish come true!
Bear Creek was first settled in the late 18th century and later incorporated in the 19th century. The area includes territory taken from Wilkes-Barre, Pittston, Bucks, Plains, and Jenkins. The area, having always been abundant with trees, became the lumber king of Luzerne County.
Today, Bear Creek retains its natural beauty and offers plenty of recreation opportunities, including the Bear Creek Camp Conservation Area, Seven Tubs Recreation Area, and the Francis E. Walter Dam and Reservoir. While Bear Creek may feel like out of the way living, it offers easy access to the PA Turnpike and is less than 10 miles away from Downtown Wilkes-Barre.
Nestled on 2.5 acres amid the unspoiled beauty of Bear Creek’s Forest Park is this 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom wood ranch reminiscent of a vacation home in the mountains. With nearly 2,000 square feet of living space, as well as a detached heated garage and heated pole barn, this property offers plenty of space to spread out, entertain, and grow as a family.
