Keystone offers new ways to live in Lancaster County

Lofts at Worthington opens final phase; new homes coming in Stoudtburg Village

If you’re looking for a unique living opportunity that’s a little different from your typical suburban neighborhood or downtown block, you can find it in Lancaster County.
Keystone Custom Homes offers two such opportunities.

New single family homes in Lancaster County starting under $200,000
Keystone is now building in Stoudtburg Village in Adamstown, a community on 27 acres designed to mirror the charm of an Old World German village.
The brainchild of Ed and Carol Stoudt, owners of the nearby brewery, restaurant, antiques mall and market, Stoudtburg Village currently includes 65 homes, a restaurant, green space, a large pond full of colorful koi and cat fish, walking paths, and unique shops spread throughout the village.
“Our community is ecstatic about the prospect of seeing our beautiful village completed,” says John Schmidt, president of Stoudtburg Village Property Owners Association.
“Those of us who live in Stoudtburg Village know we have a special place to call our home. We recognize the uniqueness of our community with its towers, cobblestone plaza, fountain and narrow walking paths between facing homes and shops.”
New Keystone homes in Stoudtburg Village will range in size from 1,528 to 2,359 square feet, with Bavarian-inspired exteriors and rear-load garages. Duplex plans and plans with first-floor owner’s suites will be available.
“The realization that a builder with the reputation of Keystone Custom Homes will be completing the final phase of our village is probably the best Christmas gift we could ever receive as a community,” Schmidt says.

The holiday season also marked a milestone for the Lofts at Worthington in Manheim Township, which opened its third and final phase in early December, according to regional property manager Lorine Kellner.
The Lofts at Worthington offers traditional and loft-style apartments above retail and commercial space in a walkable village-style setting that includes restaurants, shops, offices and recreation areas.
The final phase includes two floors of apartments — 38 total — over retail/commercial space. Apartments on the second floor are traditional style, while those on the third floor feature cathedral ceilings and loft space.
The first two phases of the Lofts are fully occupied, Kellner says.
Choose from a host of floor plans, from 757 to 1,587 square feet, available in both traditional and loft style. Monthly rent ranges from $909 to $1,980.
One-bedroom apartments have one bath. Two bedroom apartments come with two baths, including a master bath. All apartments have gas heat and feature gourmet kitchens with granite countertops and solid wood cabinetry. Washer, dryer and all kitchen appliances are included.
The Lofts offers 24/7 emergency maintenance and secured elevator access. In warmer months, residents can also enjoy grill-and-chill outdoor patio areas.
Additionally, the new phase will include a fitness center and internet cafe-type community room, included in the monthly rent, Kellner says.
For a limited time, Keystone is offering free first month’s rent for select lofts with a 13-month lease.
“We just opened Nov. 15 and already, 25 of the 37 units are leased. We are expecting 100 percent of the units to be leased by the end of the month,” Kellner says.
Worthington’s retail/commercial tenants include the Mediterranean restaurant Gibraltar, Sola Salon Studios, Eye Doctors of Lancaster and the corporate office of Infinity Health.
Worthington is also home to Salt & Pepper Italian Bistro & Pizza, Top Nails, Subway, Art Matters, Fulton Bank and The Rejuvenation Center.
