Heritage Strasburg: Enjoy less work, more living

Charter’s 55-plus community offers great location and a home right-sized for you

Now that the holidays are in the rear view mirror, your thoughts may be turning to the long winter months ahead — and snow.
If those thoughts send a chill up and down your spine, this may be the perfect time to consider a move to Heritage Strasburg, by Charter Homes and Neighborhoods.
A 55-plus Charter Active Living™ neighborhood, Heritage Strasburg is designed with an active lifestyle in mind — but not one in which all the activity involves taking care of your home.
The neighborhood’s maintenance-free living simply means homeowners spend less time on upkeep and more time on things they really want to do, whether that means curling up with a good book on a snowy winter day, shopping the nearby Route 30 outlets or taking the walking trail into charming downtown Strasburg.
With its quaint streets surrounded by scenic farmland, Heritage Strasburg is close to anywhere you want to be.
Aesthetically, the neighborhood is designed to mirror the intimate scale and architecture of Strasburg’s nearby Main Street, where you’ll find cafes, galleries, restaurants and shops.
But Heritage Strasburg is also designed with an active lifestyle in mind, along with plenty of amenities.
The homes emphasize first-floor living with options for “right sizing,” the Charter philosophy of creating a home that best fits your personal needs.
Now in its final phase, and with only a handful of homesites remaining, this neighborhood just off Route 896 offers homeowners peaceful farmland vistas and a relaxing outdoor park.
If you want to enjoy convenient, well-designed, maintenance-free living  — and let someone else take care of shoveling the snow — Heritage Strasburg has a home ready and waiting.
The three-bedroom, two-bath Jackson, at 645 Old Post Lane,  features first-floor living with a large owner’s retreat that includes a full bath and walk-in closet.
The first floor opens to a great room leading to a bright and open kitchen and breakfast area. A second and third bedroom/study are tucked away.
The home also has an attached two-car garage.
Additional features include hardwood flooring, a private back patio and front porch.
At 1,345 square feet, the home is priced at $239,990.
Three additional homes in Heritage Strasburg are scheduled for completion in the spring:
A one-story Jackson with three bedrooms, two baths, hardwood flooring, granite kitchen countertops and a gas fireplace. The home is 1,345 square feet and priced at $266,990. It is scheduled for completion in March.
A one-story Clearview with two bedrooms, two baths, hardwood flooring and a private back patio. The home is 1,194 square feet and priced at $239,990. It is scheduled for completion in April.

All of the homes include a two-car garage and large owner’s retreat.
You can also build from scratch in Heritage Strasburg, choosing from among six floor plans, some with second floor and basement options to give you just the right amount of space.
