New Community Alert: Amblebrook in Gettysburg, PA


The rich history and scenic beauty of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania makes it a very attractive area for adults 55+ to call home. It is about two and a half hours west of Philadelphia, two hours from Baltimore, and four hours from New York City.

Plans are now underway for the active adult community of Amblebrook, a new development of 2,000 single-family homes nestled in Straban Township, PA, just outside of Gettysburg.

The site is being developed by the development group Henley Corbelis. Upon completion, Amblebrook will have attached and detached single family homes priced from the low $300s to low $500s.


This exclusive community will sit on almost 800 acres of land and will include a clubhouse, outdoor pool, tennis courts, trails, and a bar & grill, all of which will be housed in the community’s very own Town Center. The grounds will feature upscale, resort-style recreational facilities for residents, including a modern clubhouse, state-of-the-art health and wellness center, walking trails, as well as indoor and outdoor pools.

Amblebrook’s approach to lifestyle will focus on its serene landscape and proximity to local farming. The property will have its own working farm which will provide produce and goods to an on-site farmers market and a bustling farm-to-table restaurant.

Local Attractions

Homeowners may have a hard time venturing away from Amblebrook since it has so much to offer, but Gettysburg is just five miles away.
