Old-fashioned meets modern in Florin Hill

2 new homes available by year’s end in Charter’s Mount Joy neighborhood

If you long for the old-fashioned charm of a small town, without sacrificing modern amenities, there’s a place you can call home on a hillside just off Main Street in Mount Joy.
Florin Hill, by Charter Homes & Neighborhoods, offers that special sense of place that has become a hallmark of all Charter neighborhoods.
The award-winning neighborhood features a clock tower — the focal point of a village of commercial businesses that includes an athletic club, chiropractor, dentist, hair salon, mortgage company and unique shops.
Its residences exude the charm of front porch living with a mix of single-family homes, townhomes, cottages and bungalows.
Florin Hill also has acres of preserved space, walking trails, a fire pit, playground and outdoor swimming pool. It’s TerraPark, an outdoor play space built in harmony with nature, is one of only two such parks in central Pennsylvania.
And its hillside location offers picturesque views of surrounding farmland and the streets of historic downtown Mount Joy.
Florin Hill is also a short drive from Route 283 and just minutes from the Mount Joy Amtrak station for an easy commute to Harrisburg or Philadelphia.
