Crossings at Sweetbriar has a home for the holidays

Landmark Homes’ 55-plus community in Lebanon County offers convenience, affordability

The Crossings at Sweetbriar is a growing 55-plus community in Lebanon County that combines a scenic setting, a strong sense of community and convenient location — all at an affordable price.
And with the holidays just around the corner, you might just find the perfect gift for yourself in this Landmark Homes community: a brand-new quick-delivery home all wrapped up and ready for a new owner.
Tucked in the North Lebanon Township countryside, this neighborhood of detached, single-family homes is just a short drive from restaurants, shopping, historic sites and the Lebanon Farmer’s Market. It also offers easy access to Hershey attractions and the recreational and cultural activities in Mount Gretna.
But there are plenty of reasons to love the Crossings at Sweetbriar all on its own, including a 3,588-square-foot clubhouse that has become a hub of community activity.
Completed in the spring, the clubhouse is at once modern and cozy, with a gathering room centered around a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, a gaming area with pool table, a wet bar and full-service kitchen for a full-range of social events.
The clubhouse also includes an activity room, large multipurpose room and a fitness room.
A covered porch perfect for socializing in warmer months will eventually overlook a future outdoor pool.
In addition to the clubhouse, Landmark recently installed numerous gazebos along the neighborhood’s network of walking trails. There are also plans to landscape a retention basin with river rock and fencing. The community also features a natural pond and scenic green space.
The Crossings at Sweetbriar is growing, too. Now in the home stretch of its first phase, the community expects to launch its second phase in the spring. When complete, it will include a total of 198 single-family homes.
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. All homes have a one- or two-car garage and include a custom landscaping package.
Homes start in the low $200s.
Joining the Crossings at Sweetbriar community has never been easier thanks to the Bennett, a move-in-ready, one-story home at 941 Snapdragon Court.
With an inviting front porch and a foyer with hardwood flooring, the Bennett offers a warm welcome and an open floor plan perfect for entertaining.
The kitchen features a wraparound breakfast bar that overlooks the breakfast area and family room, where a gas fireplace with stone surround offers a cozy welcome in colder months. A sliding glass door in the breakfast area offers access to a backyard deck.
The owner’s suite with truncated ceiling features an oversized closet and private bath with 5-foot shower and cultured marble double-bowl vanity.
The Bennett also includes a formal dining room with elegant chair rail, mudroom with built-in lockers, two-car garage and daylight basement.
At 1,940 square feet, the Bennett is priced at $278,800.
For buyers who prefer to build, Landmark has a gift for you too: a choice of one of three free upgrades with an executed agreement of sale on or before Dec. 31. Options include a gas fireplace with Madison stone surround; a stainless steel appliance package that includes dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave and electric range; or an upgrade to a level 2 granite countertop.
Landmark is also offering reduced premiums for daylight/walk-out basement lots remaining in phase one.
