Construction Progresses on Resort-Style Community in Pennsylvania 

Gettysburg, PA (March 10, 2020) – Thanks to a warm, dry winter and the approach of springtime weather, construction is progressing on builder models, buyer homes, and community amenities at Amblebrook Gettysburg, Pennsylvania’s newest 55 and better retirement destination. The state’s relatively low taxes, moderate climate, and attractive surroundings—both economically and geographically—have proven to be a natural draw for a growing number of U.S. retirees who have demonstrated interest in Gettysburg’s historic location as their ideal retirement destination. 

The team at CCD Rock Creek LLC in partnership with Caruso Homes and Elevate Homes report significant construction activity at the community situated near the intersection of Route 394 (Shriver’s Corner Road) and Route 15. Eight model homes are now completed and expertly appointed by the design teams of Model Home Interiors, P Four Design and Builders Design Group. The much-anticipated Welcome Center is also under roof, with targeted delivery on track for June. 

Interested buyers at Amblebrook Gettysburg are traveling from the Northern Maryland suburbs of Montgomery, Carroll and Frederick counties among other locales, attracted by the tax benefits offered to retirees in southern Pennsylvania. As tax day approaches, prospects are reminded that, in addition to having one of the lowest sales tax rates in the nation with no assessment on food or clothing, Pennsylvania considers pension income completely tax exempt, and there is no tax on retirement income. Pennsylvania also offers housing cost rebates for qualifying residents who are over the age of 65. These types of economic benefits add to Amblebrook Gettysburg’s attraction for active adult buyers who are focused on fitness and well-being, low-maintenance living, financial security, care for the environment, and educational opportunities. 

In addition to these advantages, the community will feature a grand clubhouse with sports and fitness facilities, a year-round aquatic center, spa, lounge, cafe, and a full range of planned activities. “People love the fact that they can live in a resort-style environment and still have access to fresh products raised by local families, the way it used to be, “ said Robert Karen, General Manager for Amblebrook Gettysburg. “Unlike any other destination, Amblebrook Gettysburg is designed to allow residents to move back in time when it comes to quality and personalized services, while moving forward in every aspect of their healthy, vibrant lifestyle.”
