Landmark Homes community in Berks County to host tour event Sept. 10
Just over the Lebanon County border in Berks County, Stonecroft Village is more than just a place that those 55 and older can call home.
It’s a community that naturally complements an active lifestyle, whether it’s socializing with friends in the clubhouse, walking the trails that traverse 23 acres of open space or visiting some of the many nearby arts and cultural attractions.
A Landmark Homes 55-plus living community, Stonecroft Village sits in a peaceful valley in the town of Womelsdorf, surrounded by mountain views.
The centerpiece of the community is an inviting gazebo that overlooks a scenic pond with fountain. Other amenities include recreation areas, the walking trails and the clubhouse, which features a living room/lounge, billiard room, fitness room, multipurpose room and kitchen.
The clubhouse is the perfect hub for activity. In fact, Stonecroft Village residents have their own social committee that plans events like happy hours, game nights, bingo and outings.
One of the best ways to get a feel for a community is to meet the people who live there. Stonecroft Village is offering an opportunity to do just that when it hosts a Dine and Explore event from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10.
Visitors will have lunch and chat with residents in the model home, then tour the model and two other ready-now homes in the community. Several homeowners will also open their homes to the public.
When complete, Stonecroft Village will include a total of 214 detached one- and two-story homes. There are 14 floor plans available — 13 one-story options and one two-story option that includes a first-floor owner’s suite. Home sizes range from 1,380 to 2,178 square feet.
For those who want to move without the wait, two brand-new homes are currently move-in ready.
The first, a one-story Asheville at 17 Loganberry Court, features three bedrooms and two baths. Among its highlights are an owner’s suite with oversized closet and private bath, a cozy gas fireplace in the living room, hardwood flooring in the foyer and a welcoming front porch.
The Asheville also includes a two-car garage leading to a spacious laundry room, a backyard patio and a large unfinished attic storage area.
At 1,649 square feet, the Asheville is priced at $234,700.
The second home, a one-story Preston at 234 Copper Beech Lane, also features three bedrooms and two baths.
Its features include a formal dining room with Craftsman-style wainscoting and an owner’s suite with tray ceiling, expansive closet and private bath with double-bowl vanity.
The kitchen, which opens to a sunny breakfast area and great room, includes stainless steel appliances and a large center island. The breakfast area has sliding glass doors that open to a backyard deck. The great room features a gas fireplace with stone surround and colonial-style mantel.
The Preston also has a two-car garage with entry to a mudroom with lockers.
At 1,817 square feet, the Preston is priced at $297,900.
Although not for sale, the model home at 39 Sweet Birch Lane, offers the perfect opportunity to see all the possibilities of designing your own home at Stonecroft Village.
According to community sales manager Kristin Ditzler, the model also represents the community’s most popular floor plan, aptly named the Stonecroft.
The one-story Craftsman-style home features three bedrooms, two baths and lofty 10-foot ceilings.
Highlights include a formal dining room with coffered ceiling and chair rail, a stone accent wall leading to the study, a gas fireplace with stone surround in the study, and an owner’ s suite with tray ceiling, private bath and large closet.
The open kitchen features Cambria quartz countertops with tile backsplash and a raised breakfast bar for eat-in seating.
The home has hardwood flooring in the foyer, dining room, great room, kitchen and breakfast area, as well as transom windows that let in copious amounts of natural light.
The model also has a security system and central vac system.
A homeowners’ association fee of $75 per month covers use and maintenance of the clubhouse, pond, a pier extending into the pond, the gazebo, walking trails, open space and private streets. The fee also covers trash and recycling.
There are currently 22 lots available in Stonecroft Village. Homes start in the low $200s.
Buyers will receive a $1,000 incentive if they reserve a lot during the Dine and Explore event Sept. 10. Those interested in attending Dine and Explore should RSVP to Kristin Ditzler by Monday, Sept. 5, at 717-419-1611 or KristinD@OwnALandmark.com.
