Being stuck in the house for a few months may have you dreaming of a more perfect home. Or, it may have you thinking about how much you’d like the freedom to pack up and get away from home.

Either way, it should have you thinking about Home Towne Square, the 55-plus community by Landmark Homes just west of Ephrata.

With its village-style setting and colorful Arts & Crafts homes featuring welcoming front porches and loads of character, Home Towne Square is the perfect place to call home.

And thanks to a low-maintenance lifestyle where you don’t have to worry about mowing or snow removal, Home Towne Square makes it easy to lock and go, whether you want to enjoy the community clubhouse and walking trails, take a daytrip or go on an extended vacation.

Now selling in the final phase of the community, just 47 home sites remain.

Even if you’ve visited Home Towne Square before, now is a great time to return and check out the new two-story Brentwood model home featuring the most recent and popular amenities. The three-bedroom home, at 345 Home Towne Blvd., Ephrata, has a bright open floor plan and 3,148 square feet of living space.

The Brentwood’s Craftsman-style exterior features white board-and-batten siding with wood accents and striking black details, including black window frames and eave brackets. Those details continue in the foyer, with wainscoting and wood detail on the ceiling, as well as the dining room and great room, both of which boast decorative beam details.

The first floor features hardwood floors in the main living areas and lofty 10-foot ceilings.

The kitchen includes stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops and tile backsplash. It opens to a breakfast area and the sunny great room featuring a two-story gas fireplace with stone surround and box-beam mantel. A sliding glass door opens to a screened-in deck.

The first-floor owner’s retreat boasts an oversized closet and a bathroom with double-bowl vanity, private water closet and zero-threshold tile shower.

The second floor includes two additional bedrooms and loft for flexible living space options.
