The Land

Over 80 acres of preserved green space.
10 miles of walking and nature trails.

The land tells a story. We listened.

As one of the most sought-after locations on the West Shore, Allen Township has an interesting backstory. The area’s namesake, William Allen, was not only one of the country’s founding fathers but along with Ben Franklin started the Philadelphia Hospital and the University of Pennsylvania. The land lining Arcona Road and Rossmoyne Road, now known as Arcona, was passed down through generations dating back to the original deed acquired from William Penn in the mid 1700’s.

When the time came to decide what the land would become for future generations, much thought went into how it would be developed. The family who owned the land envisioned a “village that fostered a diversity of people to live in harmony with one another…for the land to be developed in a way that reflects the history and culture of South Central PA and to be designed, constructed and maintained in a way that is consistent, attractive, and enduring for future generations.”

They chose Charter Homes & Neighborhoods to fulfill this vision. And we feel proud and privileged to take what came before, and incorporate it into what comes next.
