Crossings at Sweetbriar debuts new clubhouse

Newest addition to Landmark Homes 55-plus community in Lebanon County has fitness room, gathering area, wet bar, kitchen and more

The Crossings at Sweetbriar, a Landmark Homes 55-plus community just north of Lebanon city, offers affordable homes, scenic rural views and convenient location.
If that’s not enough, there’s now one more reason to call this North Lebanon Township neighborhood home: a brand-new community clubhouse.
The 3,588-square-foot clubhouse is near completion and scheduled to open for resident use on April 2, but you can get a sneak peek during an open house today from 1 to 3 p.m.
Spacious and bright, with a touch of sophisticated elegance, the clubhouse is meant to be a gathering hub for Crossings at Sweetbriar residents.
It features a grand entry with tray ceiling and chandelier. On one side, a gathering room centered around a floor-to-ceiling fireplace with stone and brick surround opens to a game area that will include a pool table. In between, a wet bar and full-service kitchen allow for a full-range of social events.
The clubhouse also includes an activity room, large multipurpose room and a fitness room with a variety of equipment and built-in cubbies to store personal belongings.
A covered porch perfect for socializing in warmer months will eventually overlook a future outdoor pool.
Halfway through its first phase, the Crossings at Sweetbriar will include a total of 198 single-family homes when complete.
Of the 12 floor plans available, 10 are one-story models and two offer two-story living with first-floor owner’s suites — giving buyers the option to have as much or as little space as they desire.
Home sizes range from 1,047 square feet for an Austin with two bedrooms, one bath and a one-car garage to 1,940 square feet for a Bennett with 3 bedrooms, two baths and a two-car garage.
Base prices start at $167,900.
Lots with and without walkout basements are available for those who want to custom build. Or choose from two spec homes, a Hartford and a Norton, that are complete and ready for quick delivery.
The one-and-a-half-story Hartford features two bedrooms and two full baths.
The centerpiece of the home is a two-story great room with cathedral ceiling and gas fireplace with stone surround. The great room opens to the dining area and kitchen, which includes an oversized island with bar seating.
The kitchen also includes stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and a pantry.
The first-floor owner’s suite has its own private bath and a large closet.
A mudroom entry off the two-car garage includes built-in lockers.
Upstairs, a spacious loft area overlooking the great room offers a flexible space for an office, play area or extra seating.
At 1,904 square feet, the Hartford is priced at $253,900.
Also waiting for an owner is the one-story, two-bedroom Norton. Features include an owner’s suite with painted tray ceiling and private bath, a kitchen with raised bar counter and large corner pantry, and a great room with gas, stacked-stone fireplace.
The Norton also includes a flex room and a mudroom entry with built-in lockers.
At 1,710 square feet, the Norton is priced at $244,600.
Both homes feature laundry rooms conveniently located near the owner’s suite.
The Crossings at Sweetbriar has a homeowner’s association fee of $75 per month to cover use and maintenance of the clubhouse, as well as maintenance of green space, including a series of walking trails.
Residents own their own land. The community has public utilities and gas heat.
The Crossings at Sweetbriar is located in the Cornwall-Lebanon School District.
In addition to the clubhouse, the model home and both quick move-in homes will be open today. A new model home is currently under construction and will have its grand opening, along with the clubhouse, on April 2.
