Hybrid Homes

Hybrid homes offer a unique housing option, blending the benefits of both cottage and apartment living to provide neighborhood setting that fosters a sense of community.  They offer the conveniences of garage parking with indoor access to home, corner locations so each home has two outside exposures, an elevator eliminating the need to use steps or stairs and indoor access to neighbors and common areas.

The hybrid design, with 12 or 13 homes per structure, are more residential in appearance than a traditional large apartment complex.

We welcome you to make an appointment to come for a tour. Contact Residency Planning at 717-581-3935.

“This is a gift we never imagined. We cared for and treasured our previous home and lovely gardens. The surprise was finding paradise here with acres of natural beauty that nurture our spirits and sense of freedom.”  -Don & Priscilla, hybrid home residents
