Grandview, Florin Hill mix classic charm with modern amenities
Charter Homes & Neighborhoods is known for artfully blending the charm and history of classic neighborhoods and small towns with the modern amenities that new homeowners have come to expect.
Two neighborhoods where you’ll find that mix of charm and modern design are Grandview in Manheim Township and Florin Hill in Mount Joy.
And both have ready-now homes that make it easier than ever to become part of the neighborhood story.
Grandview, adjacent to Grandview Heights in Manheim Township, mirrors many of the characteristics that have made Grandview Heights an iconic neighborhood and sought-after living destination for decades.
Built on the site of the former Gammache family farm, Charter’s Grandview weaves acres of natural open space into its landscape. And as a neighborhood, it is now becoming a destination all its own, where wide sidewalks encourage walkers, picket fences hearken to a bygone era, wrought-iron streetlamps cast a welcoming glow and brick walkways lead to front porches that invite neighborly conversation.
When complete, Grandview will include a total of 55 single-family homes from the low $300s.
Grandview offers six floor plans for those who want to build from scratch. But for those ready to move now, there’s the two-story Larkspur at 1146 Edgemoor Court.
The Larkspur features an open and bright first floor with a spacious great room, breakfast area and a kitchen with granite countertops and walk-in pantry.
The first floor also includes a study, formal dining room and a morning room addition that attaches to the two-car garage.
Upstairs the spacious owner’s suite includes a private full bath and two large walk-in closets. Two additional bedrooms share a second full bath. The laundry is also on the second floor.
At 2,678 square feet, the Larkspur is priced at $379,990.
Grandview is located in the Manheim Township School District, with easy access to downtown Lancaster and Park City Center.
Charter’s award-winning Florin Hill 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.
The four-bedroom Canton at 301 Berry St. is scheduled for completion in early November.
The floor plan features a spacious and open kitchen, breakfast and great room area. The kitchen includes granite countertops and a butler’s pantry. A dining room, living room and study complete the first floor.
The second floor features an owner’s retreat with private bath and large walk-in closet, as well as three additional bedrooms, a laundry and full bath.
The Canton has hardwood flooring, a full unfinished basement and a detached two-car garage.
At 2,616 square feet, the Canton is priced at $279,990.
Florin Hill is in the Donegal School District.
