When you drive or walk down the street of a neighborhood, you’ll determine the “feel” of the neighborhood right away. Is it welcoming and established? Or is it stark and missing something? Are the neighbors out taking advantage of open space and amenities? Or is no one to be found? At Charter Homes & Neighborhoods, we consciously design our neighborhood streetscapes so new neighborhoods feel like they have been nestled among the tall trees or meandering streams for decades, and create places that encourage our homeowners to engage with the neighborhood and their neighbors.
It’s with this in mind that we have created the next generation of “The Great American Neighborhood TM”. We believe that just like your home, your neighborhood should stand the test of time. We let the land guide us, considering the views, saving its trees and creeks, and thoughtfully placing every amenity so it delights and inspires. With charming streets, lively gathering spaces, and walkable destinations, we’re building neighborhoods to be enjoyed for generations.
We take an uncommon approach to the art of homebuilding. We are dedicated to designing homes and neighborhoods as unique as the people who live in them. We choose each location for the story it tells, looking beyond what’s allowed to imagine what’s possible. Then we think about the community, soaking up local history with landowners and neighbors, and collaborating with officials to create a special place for homeowners–and a proud future for us all.
We asked our Online Sales Manager, Kathryn Benson to give us her story about what she experienced when she visited our Great American Neighborhood Highlands in Newberry Township for the first time:
“The very first thing I noticed about Highlands was the location. The neighborhood is so conveniently located near Rt. 83 yet is secluded and quiet. Convenience and natural beauty collide in one great neighborhood. The homesites are generously sized; enough to accommodate a picnic with friends and family or just enjoy your backyard oasis on a relaxing night. The winding sidewalks and wide front porches create a streetscape where you are only a “Hello” and wave away from your Charter neighbors. The layout of the neighborhood is, and will be, developed in such a way where neighbors can bike ride to visit eachother, and homeowner’s can take an evening stroll down the wide sidewalks around the neighborhood. While driving through the neighborhood, I noticed the timeless home facades standing out against the warm colors of the grass, road, and trees. The variety of homesites andfloorplans also caught my eye. The value of the homes and neighborhood can’t be beat– Highlands offers something for everyone. ”
