The first builder ever to be named America’s Best Builder three times by Builder Magazine and the National Association of Home Builders, Keystone’s philosophy is simple: “build above and beyond for customers, fellow team members, and the global community.”

Part of what Keystone does to build above and beyond offering “Energy Plus” homes that save homeowners energy and money while helping to preserve natural resources. They work to minimize construction waste by recycling drywall and siding scrap.

This gorgeous 3-bedroom, 1.5 bath is located in the Devon Creek community in Lancaster, PA. The community offers a variety of new home styles: estate homes, manor homes, townhomes, garden apartments, and more, all with sidewalks and tree-lined streets. The community also features a park with a playground and convenient access to major highways. Go here to learn more about the Devon Creek community.

Keystone offers buyers a unique online tool to aid them in designing their Keystone custom home. Their KeyChoices system allows homebuyers to log in and choose from over 1500 Value Added features per floor plan. The program calculates the home price based on the chosen features and shows photos of what homebuyers can expect their choices to look like, adding valuable peace of mind early in the building process.

Parry Custom Homes builds new homes in Pittsburgh, PA


Parry Custom Homes offers home buyers the truly unique experience of not only choosing their dream home’s features, but also being involved in the design process.




The Parry team currently builds new homes in 21 communities around the Pittsburgh, PA area. If a buyer already has a lot in Western Pennsylvania outside of one of these communities and wishes to build a Parry custom home on their lot, they can do that as well.

Mountain Ridge Estates is a Parry Custom Homes community that offers residents the rare opportunity to enjoy the privacy of a wooded mountain atmosphere while still getting the amenities of a neighborhood. This 48-lot community is located in North Huntingdon, and is approximately 15 miles from downtown Pittsburgh.





Many of Parry Custom Homes’s standard features are usually considered extra costs throughout the homebuilding industry. Every Parry home owner will receive customized stone or brick on their foundation, energy-efficient construction, and a slew of other high-end features—including, but not limited to:

  • Plastered garage walls and ceilings
  • Gas fireplace with brick façade and custom mantel
  • Custom kitchen layout
  • Stainless steel appliances
  • Granite countertops in kitchen
  • Marble countertops in bathroom
  • Solid hardwood in kitchen and foyer

Included on Parry’s website is a helpful PDF download of all the specific standard features they offer.




Parry Custom Homes offers Pittsburgh residents a wide range of home designs, from traditional, pre-designed, two-story homes to fully custom homes. Their claim to fame is that they’re flexible enough to work within your budget to help you figure out how to build the custom home you desire.

Parry Custom Homes has also designed a series of exclusive floor plans that are only viewable in the privacy of their showroom. This is to ensure that Parry home designs remain unique and exclusive—no one else will be offering these particular plans.




Parry Custom Homes is a family-owned-and-operated business. The founder, Keith Parry, built a strong foundation of construction knowledge with the Carpenter’s Union before beginning to build his own quality homes.
