Enjoy maintenance-free living at Heritage Strasburg

Charter Homes & Neighborhoods community now in its final phase

Summer weather is still in full swing, but it won’t be long before thoughts turn to raking leaves and shoveling snow.
If home maintenance chores are keeping you from doing the things you really want to do, it may be time to consider “right sizing” — finding the home that best fits your personal needs while focusing on the quality of well-designed space, rather than the quantity.
Right-sizing is the philosophy behind Charter Homes & Neighborhoods’ Heritage Strasburg, a 55-plus Charter Active Living™ neighborhood.
Although Heritage Strasburg emphasizes first-floor living, several of the available floor plans offer a second-story option for those who want additional space.
Designed with an active lifestyle in mind, the neighborhood’s maintenance-free living simply means homeowners spend less time on upkeep and more time on things they really want to do.
Now in its final phase, the neighborhood of 106 home sites just off Route 896 offers homeowners peaceful farmland vistas and a relaxing outdoor park.
Aesthetically, Heritage Strasburg is designed to mirror the intimate scale and architecture of Strasburg’s nearby Main Street, which is just a short walk or bike ride away via the neighborhood walking path. There you can stroll through town enjoying a collection of cafes, galleries, ice cream shops, boutiques and restaurants.
If you’re in the mood for a little more hustle and bustle, the shopping outlets and entertainment venues along Route 30 are just a short drive away.
Time is running out to own a home in Heritage Strasburg, but two ready-now homes are available that could have you enjoying maintenance-free living this fall, before the first snowflake falls.
