Worthington a great place to live, work, play

Keystone offers new phase, move-in-ready options in Manheim Township community that mixes residential, retail and recreational space

With warmer weather finally here, it’s the perfect time to discover Worthington at Township Square, Keystone Custom Homes’ smart growth community in Manheim Township.
With its mix of residential and retail space, Worthington is a walkable community where shopping and dining opportunities are just a few steps from your front door.
And since one third of Worthington’s 86 acres is open and natural space, there are plenty of opportunities for recreation, whether it’s fountains and grilling areas, parks with gazebos, or walking and biking trails that connect to the 70-acre Landis Woods, home to a nature center, performing arts center and the Boettcher House Museum.
Straddling the Oregon Pike, Worthington is conveniently located between downtown Lancaster and Lititz, with easy access to routes 30, 222 and 283.
A new phase has just opened, on the east side of Oregon Pike. Homes in this phase will face a manicured open park space with gazebo and back up to open space. This section of Worthington will also have a walking trail that connects to nearby Nitrauer Elementary School.
When complete, Worthington will include a total of 259 homes — single-family, carriage homes and townhomes — along with the Lofts at Worthington, one- and two-bedroom apartments over 43,000 square feet of first-floor retail/commercial space on the west side of the community.
Those shops currently include an Italian bistro, a Vietnamese restaurant, Fulton Bank, Subway, a nail salon and art studio. Coming soon will be the fine dining Mediterranean restaurant Gibraltar and an upscale hair salon.
Construction on the fifth and final commercial building in the community is currently underway. That building will feature 37 luxury loft apartments over commercial space that will include Eye Doctors of Lancaster, SOLA Salons and Infinity Health Advisors.
For buyers who are ready to move in now, Worthington has two quick move-in homes, both of which feature first-floor owner suites and extensive upgrades.
The first, a Sienna Vintage, sits on a beautiful walk-out home site with meadow and stream views. The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home includes a study nook with built-in cabinets, custom lighting, a two-story foyer, upgraded kitchen, family room with Kennedy gas fireplace, and cascade bathroom featuring a frameless glass shower and tiled soaking tub.
At 1,890 square feet, the Sienna Vintage is priced at $369,912.
The second quick move-in home, a Cambridge Vintage, features three bedrooms, two and a half baths and a beautiful arched stone entry.
A second-floor loft with decorative railing and columns overlooks a two-story great room with a large wall of windows and two-story stone fireplace. The owner’s suite includes a Venetian bath with tiled walk-in shower, soaking tub with granite surround, and split vanities.
The floor plan was a best in show winner in the 2015 Parade of Homes.
At 2,578 square feet, the Cambridge Vintage is priced at $394,912.
Additionally, Worthington’s designer model home, a four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath Manchester Traditional, is also for sale.
The former Parade of Homes best in show winner has a Craftsman-style exterior featuring a covered porch, dormers, paver patio and two decks.
The home features recessed niches in the foyer for displaying art and photos, and a formal dining room with tray ceiling, bay window and its own beverage nook for easy entertaining. The kitchen has a huge island and a breakfast area.
The centerpiece of the first floor is the two-story family room with a wall of windows, flanked on either side by the exterior decks. The first floor also includes a powder room and a study with fireplace.
The second floor features the owner’s suite with tray ceiling, crown molding, a spacious walk-in closet and a Venetian bath with double vanity. The remaining bedrooms share an additional bath. The laundry is also on the second floor.
At 3,197 square feet, the Manchester Traditional is priced at $529,912.
Home prices in Worthington start in the low $300s.
Worthington is located in the Manheim Township School District. The model home is open noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, 1 to 6 p.m. Monday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
