Charter’s Florin Hill exudes small-town charm in Mount Joy

Two homes now available in hillside neighborhood overlooking historic downtown

Located on a hillside just off Main Street in Mount Joy, Florin Hill offers picturesque views of surrounding farmland and the streets of the historic downtown.
The award-winning neighborhood by Charter Homes & Neighborhoods 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 an 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.
From your front porch you can see 20 miles of green spaces, historic farmhouses and walking trails, all wrapped up in small-town charm.
But for those times when you need to head to the big city, you have easy access to Route 283 and the Mount Joy Amtrak station for an easy commute to Harrisburg or Philadelphia.
If you enjoy old-fashioned small-town living that includes modern amenities, there are currently two easy opportunities to make Florin Hill your new home.
