At Charter, we live and work by 10 Principles, one of which is “Make a Difference.” The definition under that Principle states “Things happen because of you, not circumstance. You know that your willingness to muster a few seconds of courage to take the right action or speak up can change the future for the better.”
Construction is underway and in a few short months, the long-anticipated plans for a unique living experience in Lancaster County will become a reality. Belmont will offer a thoughtful mix of 13 single family homes and 74 townhomes designed for how you want to live and close to everywhere you want to be.
We’ve taken special care to design a series of one-of-a-kind homes at Hastings that you won’t be able to find anywhere else in Pittsburgh. From Monogram Single Homes in the exclusive Preserve area of the neighborhood, to Special Edition Townhomes in the center of it all on Hastings Green, and low-maintenance first-floor living with Signature Single Homes in The Woods, you're sure to find your perfect new home at Hastings.
Look closely and you’ll notice that a Charter home looks and feels different than any other new home. From the large front porch to how the sun enters your kitchen to your laundry room layout, all of our homes are designed to feel larger, brighter and stand the test of time. We call it Living Design and every Charter home is designed with these 4 principles in mind.
In The Great American Neighborhood®, you can find a spacious single family home, a stylish loft townhome, and a first-floor maintenance free home all on the same street. But no two homes will ever be the same because we make it easy to personalize your new floorplan with modifications and details that fit you and your family best.
At Charter, we’re committed to supporting local businesses and creating new and different ways for neighbors to connect. Which is why in The Great American Neighborhood® we will offer a place to shop, eat, workout and relax – all just a few steps from your front porch. We call it Crossroads.
Take a drive through any Charter neighborhood and you’ll notice a theme - people spending time outside. Families are exploring TerraPark®, neighbors are mingling at mailboxes, and friends are catching up at Crossroads. That’s because The Great American Neighborhood® is designed to inspire people to connect with the outdoors, spend time together, and enjoy the land.
Location, location, location. Whether you’re new to real estate or a seasoned veteran, you probably know that a great location should be the number one consideration when selecting your new home. Things like school district, proximity to recreation and nature, scenic views and access to commuter routes can make or break the value of your home. That's why we have such high standards for the land we choose to turn into a Charter Neighborhood.
The first time we walked the future site of Hastings in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, we knew the natural beauty of the land, which had only grown more special over time, was the perfect canvas for what we do best at Charter Homes & Neighborhoods -
Just in time for homebuyers to find their dream home in the New Year, we’ve added three new concepts to our incredible assortment of already existing floorplans. With so many choices, selecting the home that fits your lifestyle has never been easier.
1,250 steps represents the farthest you’ll have to walk to arrive at an engaging place within our neighborhoods. It’s roughly a quarter mile – one lap of a track – or about a five-minute trek at an average gait.
At Charter, we’re big champions of natural playgrounds, with green spaces and slides, amphitheaters, and secret nooks. Kids love them – and unlike modular playgrounds, they don’t get bored of them. Ours are called TerraPark®, and we build them into our neighborhoods to help foster a love of nature and imaginative play.
Buying into a new neighborhood is always exciting. New home construction alleviates the worry of inheriting someone else’s headaches. And it offers one of the greatest luxuries in life. To buy new means enjoying freshly laid hardwoods; granite counters chosen by you; tasteful, contemporary cabinetry; and the latest and greatest systems and technology.
More than 100 local dignitaries, families, and friends turned out on Saturday, December 10 for the preview VIP opening of THEA, an exciting Mediterranean and German influenced eatery from the restaurant extraordinaire team of Sophia and AnnMarie Nelms.
Our neighborhoods and the people that live in them are the best ways to demonstrate what makes life in a Charter neighborhood so special. How do we know? Because every year – every month even – we see friends become neighbors.
