Charter named #1—Again!

This is so exciting. The readers of Lancaster Newspapers have voted Charter Homes & Neighborhoods Best New Home Builder in the 13th Annual Reader’s Choice Awards.

Charter has several neighborhoods in Lancaster including:

Florin Hill in Mount Joy


Visit the brand new model home at Florin Hill

Florin Hill is one of the most admired neighborhoods in Pennsylvania. In Florin Hill, new homes and front porch living intersect with the convenience of Main Street anchored by a signature clock tower. Located on a picturesque hillside in historic Mount Joy Borough, Florin Hill offers more than you can imagine. Stunning views of downtown and the countryside are the backdrop for amenities not typically found in a new home neighborhood –an outdoor swimming pool, the Florin Hill Athletic Club, walking trails, acres of preserved spaces and the all natural playground, TerraPark TM.  Only in Florin Hill can you walk to neighborhood shops, see 20 miles of open space and historic farmhouses, and take in the small town charm from your front porch. You can immediately see why it has won honors like Best Neighborhood in Pennsylvania.*

Millcreek in West Lampeter Township


Beautiful Front Porch Design at Millcreek

Millcreek is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in LancasterCounty. New neighborhoods don’t typically look like this, and we designed it that way. At first glance, you will notice the trees and natural landscape which make this neighborhood feel like home. Look at the flagship bank barn, restored as part of a community center. Neighbors take to the trails that run through the neighborhood, or follow the stream to find everyday escapes in the solace of the woods. Play a game of catch with your favorite two or four legged friends on Great Lawn. Watch it all from your wrap around front porch. This neighborhood is designed with character to create a special place for years to come.

Veranda in East Hempfield Township


A school bus arrives at our Veranda neighborhood…

Veranda is not just a place; it is a way of life. Neighbors nod their hellos as they walk their dogs, play catch on the green and take to the trails. Veranda is an artful mix of stately single family homes, carriage homes and townhomes providing flexible living for the modern lifestyle. Thousands of trees line the streets and sidewalks of Veranda, providing a beautiful backdrop during times spent outdoors. All of this, plus the neighborhood’s signature ponds and wide front porches redefined what a neighborhood should be.

Grandview in ManheimTownship


Grandview is now open with limited time Pre Construction Pricing!

Grandview is your last chance to build a new home in the most well known neighborhood in Manheim Township. There’s a reason why this neighborhood is so popular—the homes nestled along tree lined streets coupled with the convenient location. Grandview will continue the feel of the iconic neighborhood. You will enjoy the artfully crafted streetscapes and the timeless new home designs. It’s not often that you can get the best of both worlds. Grandview combines old neighborhood charm with all the benefits of a new home filled with style.

Bishop Woods in Elizabethtown


Imagine the shade on a warm summers day!

Imagine opening your door each day to pristine woods and open space – to endless opportunities for playtime, relaxation, and getting back to nature. Now, you can bring nature to your front door at Bishop Woods – Charter Homes’ newest neighborhood offering one acre, wooded homesites that are beyond comparison. Stretch your legs and set your imagination free as you enjoy Bishop Woods’ secluded beauty. A quick 25 minute drive from bothdowntown Lancaster and downtown Harrisburg, Bishop Woods offers the perfect combination of seclusion and convenience.

Heritage Strasburg in Strasburg


The popular Jackson model home at Heritage Strasburg

Heritage Strasburg is a vibrant 55 plus neighborhood that takes its inspiration from the warm brick and intimate scale of Main Street’s carefully preserved Colonial architecture. Strasburg has a charm few places can match. In every direction lay scenic farms cultivated by the Plain people, stewards of this land for generations. Just down the road, the Strasburg Railroad makes its nostalgic steam-fueled run to Paradise and back. And history is alive and well on Main Street, with quaint B&Bs, crafts shops, antique stores and cafes.

Charter was recently voted #1 Homebuilder on Harrisburg’s WestShore by the Carlisle Sentinel. We want to thank everyone who voted for us in the Carlisle Sentinel and Lancaster Newspapers—it is an honor to the entire team.
