Charter neighborhood close to Strasburg’s Main Street, local farms, outlets and entertainment
Picture stately old trees framing an idyllic neighborhood green surrounded by walking paths.
Sound like a charming old town? Not quite.
It’s Heritage Strasburg, a 55-plus Charter Active Living™ neighborhood by Charter Homes & Neighborhoods that blends the historic charm of nearby Strasburg with modern homes that focus on well-designed space.
So here you’ll find peaceful, quaint streets that connect by trail to the rich heritage of Strasburg, with its collection of cafes, galleries, ice cream shops, boutiques and restaurants.
You’ll also find homes that emphasize first-floor living with plenty of options for “right sizing,” the Charter philosophy of creating a home that best fits your personal needs.
Now in its second phase, the neighborhood of 106 home sites just off Route 896 offers homeowners peaceful farmland vistas and a relaxing outdoor park, as well as close proximity to Strasburg shops, the bustling Route 30 outlets and entertainment venues.
Aesthetically, the neighborhood is designed to mirror the intimate scale and architecture of Strasburg’s nearby Main Street.
But Heritage Strasburg is also designed with an active lifestyle in mind. The neighborhood’s maintenance-free living means homeowners spend less time on upkeep and more time on things they really want to do.
With leaf-raking in full swing and snow shoveling not far behind, now is the perfect time to explore the Jackson, a ready-now home at 645 Old Post Lane.
The three-bedroom, two-bath home features first-floor living with a large owner’s retreat that includes a full bath and walk-in closet.
The first floor opens to a great room leading to a bright and open kitchen and breakfast area. A second and third bedroom/study are tucked away.
The home also has an attached two-car garage.
Additional features include hardwood flooring, a private back patio and front porch.
At 1,345 square feet, the home is priced at $245,990.
Three additional homes in Heritage Strasburg are scheduled for completion in the spring. Or you can build from scratch, choosing from among three floor plans, some with second floor and basement options to give you just the right amount of space.
To explore Heritage Strasburg and all that it has to offer, visit the neighborhood home store at 205 McCarter Lane, Strasburg, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday through Tuesday, or call 1-800-325-3030 to schedule a tour.
