New for 2013. Deer Run Commons, Derry Township


A peek into the Sterling Townhome’s great room 

The Sterling  townhome design is a Deer Run Commons favorite. The design offers an open space filled with light. This 3-bedroom townhome doesn’t compromise space or natural light!

Our top 3 picks in the Home:

The great room – The combination of the gas fireplace, and large floor to ceiling windows create a cozy light filled space.

The kitchen – A spacious granite island, tall maple cabinets, and hardwood flooring make the kitchen a stand out!

The owner’s retreat –  You will feel relaxed as soon as you enter the space!


New for 2013. Towns at Meridian, Mechanicsburg


Towns at Meridian puts you in the middle of everywhere you want to be!

The new Hawthornehome design combines natural light, an open floorplan and included designer finishes (like hardwood and granite!) into a home to suit a modern lifestyle. The neighborhood features preserved areas for walking trails and a firepit.

Our Top 3 Picks in the Home:

The Kitchen – The granite counters, hardwood flooring and spacious cabinetry create a kitchen you’ll be happy to cook in–and while we’re raving about the kitchen…

The Buffett Island – It’s the center of the home, and the design team creates an oversized island large enough to serve food and provide seating at the same time.

Tall Floor to Ceiling Windows – Flooding the great room and kitchen with natural light, it creates an airy, open feel–you’ll rarely find windows like this in a townhome!

Our Top 3 picks in the Home:

Open Great Room – The great room opens up to the kitchen, created a connected center of the home.

Gameroom – Who doesn’t need extra flexible space in the home–the best part about this space is that YOU choose how to use it best.

Architectural Details –  From crown moulding to tray ceilings, there are well placed details throughout the home


Spring Hill, Harrisburg


The wide front pathway leads to a place where memories are made.

Overflowing with curb-appeal from the naturally beautiful landscape of the neighborhood and the exquisite architectural styling of the exterior, the Abbott model is a standout at Spring Hill. The model is set on a tranquil homesite backing up to mature trees with so many windows providing so many beautiful views.

Our top 3 picks in the Home:

The Solarium- The large windows are perfect to take in the beautiful outdoor views all year long

Spacious Kitchen – We love the Corian countertops and the tall cabinets–not to mention the oversized center island!

Laundry Suite/Mudroom – It is the perfect place to transition from outside to inside. Come on in, drop your bags and enjoy your uncluttered home.


Walden, Mechanicsburg

The Harper home design is  one of the most popular home designs at Walden–Central PA’s fastest selling neighborhood. The home first debuted and won accolades at the 2012 Harrisburg Parade of Homes for decor, exterior, and landscape design.

Our Top 3 Picks in the Home:

The Foyer with Window Seat – The beautiful entry with our new favorite spot to relax–the window seat!

The Great Room and Kitchen – The open flow from the kitchen to great room creates a space where all the living activities of the home occur together

“The Spot” – The space connecting the garage to the home–the best part of this space is that it is up to you to choose how to use it! Gardening room, space for a 3rd car, or a workshop–its up to you!”
