Millcreek a perfect union of indoor, outdoor space

Charter’s award-winning West Lampeter Township neighborhood has few opportunities remaining to become a part of its story

The neighborhood of Millcreek has gracefully woven its way into the fabric of West Lampeter Township, celebrating the land that came before it and incorporating it into its winding paths and open spaces.
The Great American Neighborhood® by Charter Homes & Neighborhoods has been celebrated both locally and nationally.
And now there are only a few opportunities left to become part of a place honored as one of the “Best in American Living.”
From its canopy of trees to its walking trails to its preserved historic bank barn, Millcreek is designed to respect the land that came before it and make that land part of the unique neighborhood story.
Millcreek includes a combined 225 single-family homes, townhomes and carriage homes, all surrounded by lush maintained green spaces, gathering places, walks and trails.
Rather than fill in a trickling stream, Charter built a bridge over it. Rather than take down tall mature trees, Charter built a walking path through them.
Millcreek offers 4 1/2 miles of walking trails, including the main one which follows Mill Creek. A walk in the neighborhood can always lead to a destination, whether it’s following leaf-covered paths to the private stream or strolling down the sidewalk to the community center or the neighborhood cafe, Sugar Plums & Tea, for a visit with friends.
The Great Lawn, a large, centrally located expanse, has become an outdoor gathering place for relaxation and recreation.
And, of course, Millcreek offers timeless homes, designed for the way you live.
There are still a few opportunities remaining to build your own home in Millcreek, but if you’re ready to move in now there are three homes available offering a variety of sizes and styles to fit your lifestyle.
Each home features expertly curated fixtures and finishes by Charter’s own CharterColors designer, and all incorporate the LivingDesign™ principles that deliver character in every home Charter builds — natural light from large windows, great open interior spaces, artfully designed sight lines and a sense of timelessness.
The two-story Fillmore offers a picturesque view of the land’s original farmhouse and pond. The four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home features upgraded hardwood flooring, granite countertops, a first-floor study and gas fireplace.
