High-end rental community in East Lampeter Township features host of amenities
When The Reserve at Greenfield opened its doors in East Lampeter Township in mid-November, it brought something new to Lancaster County: luxury apartment living specifically designed for millennials and downsizers.
“This is the most high-end apartment community in Lancaster,” says Leah Connors, Senior Community Manager for High Associates, which manages the community located at 357 Pitney Road.
Tucked in the countryside just outside Lancaster city, The Reserve at Greenfield is convenient to downtown and Route 30, for an easy commute to destinations near and far.
Built by High Construction, The Reserve features 82 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment “homes,” as Connors calls them, ranging in size from 712 to 1,356 square feet. The controlled-access building is pet-friendly and entirely non-smoking.
The community is holding an open house today from 2 to 4 p.m. Visitors can take a tour of the community and amenities while enjoying holiday snacks.
One thing visitors will notice is that The Reserve at Greenfield manages to exude luxury while still acknowledging its rural roots. The community sits on part of 10 acres that once was farmland, and the remainder of which will never be developed.
The lobby has a modern farmhouse decor that is both cozy and chic, with plenty of comfortable seating, a large flat-screen smart TV and a two-sided gas fireplace that does double duty on the welcoming outdoor patio space available for entertaining guests or relaxing with a book.
There’s also a full kitchenette with bar seating for residents to enjoy.
“It’s all open space the residents can use to entertain or gather with friends,” Connors says.
Of course the most important spaces are the luxury apartment homes themselves. Residents can choose from 16 different floor plans on four stories, all named for famous authors. Three of the apartments comply with Americans with Disabilities Act access guidelines.
From a one-bedroom Dickens to a three-bedroom Hemingway, all apartment homes feature a host of high-end features.
Kitchens include white or java-colored custom 42-inch Shaker-style cabinetry with soft-close doors and brushed nickel hardware; Slate GE Energy Star appliances, including a five-burner gas stove, microwave and refrigerator with ice maker and bottom freezer; quartz countertops, tiled backsplashes and under-cabinet lighting. All kitchens also feature either an island or peninsula.
Main bathrooms feature comfort-height vanities and subway-tile surrounds with soaking tubs or showers.
All homes also have keyless entry, 9-foot ceilings, extra-large windows with 2-inch wooden blinds, Armstrong luxury plank flooring throughout the main living areas, a full-size side-by-side or stackable washer and dryer, and a balcony.
In addition to generous closet space, residents also have the option of renting storage lockers of various sizes on the building’s lower level. That level also has bike storage and a repair shop, and an indoor pet grooming salon, as well as 23 tandem garages available for an additional fee.
As a luxury community, The Reserve at Greenfield offers numerous other amenities for its residents.
For the working professional, a lobby conference room behind sliding barn doors offers a table, smart TV and privacy for meetings or simply working from home. A business center with two desktop Mac computers and a printer is also available for resident use.
Recognizing that residents have down time, too, The Reserve has a 24-hour fitness center and a yoga studio, both located conveniently off of the lobby. The fitness center has interactive cardio equipment, and the yoga studio allows residents to take classes via a large-screen TV.
Additional amenities — including an indoor/outdoor resort-style pool, tennis courts and hot tub — are available for a $200-per-home annual membership fee at High Associates’ neighboring rental community, Greenfield Estates.
The Reserve also has plans to add garden plots to its grounds next year, Connors says.
Rent at The Reserve at Greenfield ranges from $1,195 to $1,945 a month and includes water, sewer, trash removal and 24-hour on-call maintenance. The community website offers residents the convenience of paying online with credit card or bank payments as well as placing work orders online.
Up to two pets per apartment are welcome for a one-time nonrefundable fee of $300 per pet and an additional monthly fee of $25 per pet. The grounds include walking paths with waste disposal stations, and the pet spa ensures that furry residents will be pampered, too.
In addition to today’s open house, regular leasing office hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, and 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday.
