Live, work and play in Keystone’s Worthington

7 more sites now available for pre-sale in highly sought-after Manheim Township neighborhood

Worthington at Township Square, Keystone Custom Homes’ smart-growth community centrally located on Oregon Pike, just north of Lancaster city, is bustling with construction activity these days.
Whether you’re looking for a luxurious and stately single-family home or an urban-inspired loft-style apartment, you’ll find it here — all in a walkable community featuring everything from restaurants to nail and hair salons and served by Manheim Township schools.
In addition to retail/commercial space, the west side of the community has open space, fountains, grilling areas, and a trail that connects to the beautiful 68-acre Landis Woods Nature Preserve.
Worthington’s east side includes open park space, a gazebo and a walking trail that connects to adjacent highly rated Nitrauer Elementary School.
With just five home sites remaining in the recently released second phase, Keystone hopes to continue the success of the community by offering seven additional sites for pre-sale. The newest sites include highly sought-after walkout basements, meadow and stream as well as farmland views.
“It’s an exciting time for the residents in this premier location in Manheim Township,” says Michael Klaips, Lancaster County Sales Manager for Keystone Custom Homes. “We have major grocery, retail and restaurant projects underway all around us. I didn’t think it was possible, but this highly accessible, highly desirable live/work/play neighborhood is about to get even more convenient for our homeowners.”
Buyers can choose from eight floor plans in Worthington, three of which have first-floor owner’s suites. That includes two newly released but already popular floor plans, the Winston and the Hartford.
One of two designer ready-now homes soon to be available for purchase in the community is the Addison Vintage. This four-bedroom two-and-a-half-bath open floor plan will feature a full front porch across the entire facade of the home. With a grand kitchen enhanced by a large custom island and walk-in pantry, a second-floor laundry, expansive owner’s retreat and farm views, you owe it yourself to check out this home.
One way to explore all the possibilities for your new home at Worthington is by visiting the designer model home at 562 Brookshire Drive, on the east side of Route 272.
The home, Keystone’s popular Manchester floor plan in the European-inspired English Cottage elevation, has board-and-batten siding and shutters and decorative stone archways.
The spacious foyer features a shiplap ceiling, globe-pendant lighting, and 5-foot-high ornamental trim and molding that flows seamlessly into the formal dining room.
The Garden Kitchen, a new design feature, includes floor-to-ceiling cabinetry with down-lit glass fronts, honed-leather granite countertops, a mosaic-tile backsplash, butler’s pantry and an oversized designer island, the perfect focal point for family gatherings. There is also a sunny breakfast area with walk-out bay window.
An all-season sitting room leads to a spacious wood panel-covered patio featuring a two-sided fireplace shared with the two-story great room.
Upstairs, the spacious owner’s suite features a double-door entry, triple-transom window and shiplap wall. French doors lead to a luxurious Venetian bath with freestanding tub, tile shower with full body spray system, private water closet, comfort-height double-bowl vanity and granite countertops.
The Manchester has a finished basement with full kitchenette and bath.
A similar, nicely appointed Manchester Manor is currently available at $472,912 for those who prefer to buy a designer-built home that will be move-in ready before the holidays.
Floor plan sizes in Worthington range from 1,776 to over 3,000 square feet, with prices starting in the high $290s after applying Keystone’s current promotion — 17 percent off of the base price through Sept. 30.
The model home is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 6 p.m. Sundays and 1 to 6 p.m. Mondays.
