2013 New Design Idea: The Buffet Island

The CharterDesign™ team released several new home designs to its award winning portfolio, leading the industry in thoughtful and innovative home design. The team of architects, drafting experts and designers do all of the planning and design work for Charter Homes & Neighborhoods.

These new home designs feature four new ideas: 

Front Door First Design, The Sun Porch, The Buffet Island, and Handcrafted Details. Today, let’s focus on The Buffet Island.

There is no argument, the kitchen island is the hub of all activity in the home. CharterDesign™ has created an over-sized island that is large enough to prep food, serve food, and provide dining space and seating, all at the same time!


More detailing incorporated into the Buffet Island is designed to look more like furniture with columns, beaded paneling, and baseboard trim. This new take on function, design and beauty will be a useful and gorgeous anchor in your home.


The Buffet Island can be found in several new home designs released in two existing neighborhoods.

Graystone at Walden

Graystone is the newest phase of single family homes located in Central PA’s fastest selling neighborhood, Walden. Walden is located in Silver Spring Township, Mechanicsburg on Harrisburg’s West Shore.

Farmview at Millcreek

Farmview at Millcreek is the final section of one of the nations most celebrated neighborhoods. Located in Lancaster, Millcreek’s preserved spaces, water features and the historic bank barn make the neighborhood a truly unforgettable place.
