Enjoy estate-style luxury in Garman’s Lititz Bend

Explore model home, lot choices at Muddy Boots Open House on Sunday, March 18

Garman Builders is so excited about its new Lititz Bend community off West Millport Road that it’s rolling out the welcome mat before the first home is finished.
Garman will hold a Muddy Boots Open House from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. today, hosted by new homes specialist Cristi Getz. Visitors can tour the model home — a four-bedroom Abigail currently under construction — and drive through the community to explore available lots, says Charlie Sensenig, director of special projects for Garman.
The floor plans available in Lititz Bend are all part of a new series of estate-style homes for Garman.
“They are luxury homes with a lot of square footage,” Sensenig says.
Located between UPMC Pinnacle Lititz and Woodcrest Avenue, and just minutes from downtown Lititz, Lititz Bend will include 70 single-family homes when complete. Lots range in size from about one-third acre to just under one acre. Some back up to open space and others can accommodate walk-out basements.
There are 42 homes planned in the first phase.
In addition to the Abigail, buyers can choose from three other two-story, four-bedroom plans, ranging from 3,671 to 4,083 square feet. Prices start in the low $500s.
Three additional new floor plans — including a two-story with first-floor owner’s suite and a three-bedroom ranch-style home — will be coming soon, Sensenig says.
The homes in Lititz Bend are distinguished by their included features, generous square footage and available personal choices, says Doug Groff, director of sales and marketing for Garman.
Standard features include granite countertops, tile backsplashes, larger islands and hardwood flooring in the foyer, kitchen and breakfast area.
Buyers can also choose from a more expansive selection of flooring and cabinetry, as well as custom trim packages, such as the farmhouse trim showcased in the model home.
While the Abigail is still under construction, visitors to this future Parade of Homes entry will note the high farmhouse wainscoting in the dining room, crown molding, and ladder transoms and wide-paneled cased openings to the dining room and family room.
Ten-foot first-floor ceilings and tall windows let in plenty of natural daylight, while low-voltage candlelight in the front windows guarantees a warm and welcoming evening glow.
In keeping with the modern farmhouse style, the Abigail model also features a cobblestone interior wall with sliding barn door in the dining room and mudroom. The kitchen includes a white cast-iron farmhouse sink.
The home also has a study, a family room with gas fireplace, a stone surround and built-in bookcases, and a breakfast area that opens to a large sunroom.
Upstairs, the owner’s suite includes a tray ceiling with rope lighting, a luxury bath with split vanities, freestanding tub and tile shower, and two walk-in closets. Two more bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bath, and a fourth bedroom has its own full bath. All bedrooms have walk-in closets.
For outdoor entertaining, the Abigail will include an easy-care deck and concrete patio.
At 3,930 square feet, the Abigail is set for completion in early April, but will not be available for sale until spring or summer of 2019.
Those who want to make their new home in Lititz Bend don’t have to wait that long. Garman will be taking lot reservations beginning with today’s open house.
For an even earlier move-in date, consider two quick delivery homes currently under construction in the neighborhood.
The five-bedroom Huntleigh, next door to the model home, features a first-floor guest suite with private bath and walk-in closet, first-floor study, dining room, flex room, hidden pantry and sunroom addition.
The open-concept kitchen and family room area will feature a coffered ceiling, gas fireplace and built-in shelving.
The Huntleigh has separate two-car and one-car garages. At 3,894 square feet, it is scheduled for completion in early May.
The four-bedroom Hudson includes a two-story foyer and two-story family room. Plans also call for a first-floor dining room, family room and study, and a three-car garage.
At 3,900 square feet, the Hudson is scheduled for completion in early June.
