Who will build the homes at Amblebrook?

We are proud to feature several leading active adult builders at Amblebrook. Caruso Homes will build single-family homes, while Elevate Homes will present homes in the Classic and Premier Series and Lennar will build one-and-two-story villas. Several other builders are currently competing to be part of our community, and we are in the process of reviewing floorplans, elevations, features and techniques. We are committed to working with builder partners that provide a premier living environment for Amblebrook residents, with a focus on efficiency, functionality and aesthetics.

How can we be assured that the clubhouse and amenities will be completed as planned?

As experienced developers of resort-style communities, we understand the significant role amenities play in ensuring the enjoyment and wellbeing of our 55+ residents. To this end, we have made an upfront investment in major infrastructure and the construction process is already well underway. This ongoing commitment will ensure that the services and facilities are completed.

What are the homesite sizes?

The homesite size at Amblebrook varies to accommodate a wide range of styles. Our diverse product offering will include villas, cottages, classic and premier single-family homes, and custom offerings. Our unique neighborhoods are thoughtfully planned to accommodate home styles, yard space, and spectacular views.

What is the allotment for space between homes?

Designed with outdoor living in mind, our homesites provide ample space for open-air kitchens, patios, gardens, and more. To ensure proper drainage, the homes will be sited approximately 10 to 15 feet apart with space for landscaping features that define each residential environment.

Will the community have golf carts?

We are evaluating our community transportation strategy and welcome your input. We’ve considered golf carts, bicycles, a rideshare program, shuttle service, autonomous vehicles, and more. Our goal is to provide you with options that are safe, enjoyable, and convenient.

Where will the dog park be located?

The dog park will be located near The Boulevard Welcome Center. Set in a natural environment away from the homes, it is a specially-designed space for owners to enjoy time with furry friends.

What kind of internet service will be available?

Comcast High Speed Internet will be available along with a menu of additional services they provide.

Will the homes have garages?

Home plans will include 1- or 2-car garages with options for additional space depending on the product.

Will there be security within the community?

While some active adult communities are secured and gated, we believe these procedures are unnecessary at Amblebrook. The greater Gettysburg community is notable for its friendly, safe, environment.

Will there be a restaurant in the community?

Amblebrook currently has a café in The Boulevard Welcome Center to be stocked with fresh produce, grab-and-go options, pastries and more. In addition, our clubhouse plans include resident-run features such as a demonstration kitchen, coffee house, lounge and bar.

What kind of educational classes will be offered at Amblebrook?

Our Lifestyle Director will plan a variety of educational classes in the Learning Center along with informative events centered on the interests of our residents. We welcome your input and ideas.

Will there be special programming targeted to grandkids?

In addition to seasonal activities throughout the year, Amblebrook’s PlayGrand area will be the perfect place to gather with the grandkids for hours of fun and games. Or, you may choose to spend the day fishing, kayaking, and exploring the trails. With so much to do, you’ll create new adventures every time they visit.

When will the models be complete?

We currently have 8 completed and decorated models. Contact the sales team to schedule your appointment.

Why should I buy now?

Given the excitement already generated, we expect home prices to steadily increase as the community quickly develops, which means that early purchasers will enjoy a greater value. In addition, Amblebrook Founders receive a variety of fringe benefits. Along with receiving Founders Keepsakes, you will be the first to learn about community updates, get access to special events, collect offers from our trusted partners, and more.

What makes Gettysburg a great place to retire?

When you retire in Gettysburg, you’ll enjoy the charm of this iconic town along with easy access to big-city conveniences such as farm-to-table dining, full-service shopping, and high-quality health care. Metropolitan areas such as Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland, are just a short drive away, making it easy to travel, enjoy expanded cultural opportunities, and stay in touch with family and friends. As you settle into the safety of your small-town atmosphere and scenic Amblebrook surroundings, you’ll also appreciate the sense of financial security that comes with retiring in Gettysburg. We find that buyers are attracted to Pennsylvania for its low sales tax rate—with exemptions for food and clothing—along with a variety of retiree-friendly policies. With so few retirement communities in Gettysburg, these benefits make it easy to see why Amblebrook has become a sought-after destination.
