Valleybrook Estates - Manheim Township - Lancaster PA Real Estate Spotlight

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

Valleybrook Estates, Lancaster PA Real EstateNestled along Oregon Pike near Landis Valley Farms is Valleybrook Estates, one of the only true condominium communities in Lancaster County.  If you're looking for maintenance-free living with a great location, with low monthly fees, then you should consider Valleybrook for your next home.

Built between 1971 and 1974, Valleybrook Estates homes are 1-floor living units set in a quiet, semi-wooded property.  Some of the units are 1-story, and some are 2-story arrangements (that is, 1 unit and 1 unit down).  While the convenience factor is very high, and the 2 bedroom units offer what amounts to double masters, the overall condition of these condos is somewhat dated.  For some reason owners don't seem to want to upgrade the interiors (at least on the units that have been on the market).  If you're looking for cutting-edge design and amenities, you may want to look to a new townhome community rather than these homes.  Call me at 717-799-0851 for more information.  However, if location and the lack of maintenance needs are priority for you, then Valleybrook Estates may hold some promise.

Valleybrook Estates, Lancaster PA Real EstateThe association offers a large outdoor hot tub, pool and a nice community center.  The offices are located in the original farmhouse, which the developer nicely saved and restored (unlike other local builders).  The roads are wide and many walking paths run throughout the community.

Valleybrook Estates, Lancaster PA Real Estate Units in Valleybrook Estates do tend to sell rather quickly.  Given the standardized nature of the various floorplans (2nd story, 1st story, rancher) the sold prices are also relatively standardized.  Recent sales indicate a price of about $115,000 for the 1 bedrooms, and $135,000 for the 2 bedrooms.  There is a real opportunity for a homeowner to move in and remodel the unit into a modern look and take these prices to the next level.  Regardless, buying a home in Valleybrook Estates remains a decent investment of your homebuying dollars.

As of today there is one active listing, a 1 bedroom unit.  For more information or to see this home give me a call at 717-799-0851 or email me anytime.   If you'd like to receive email updates of hot new listings in Valleybrook Estates, contact me at and give me your contact information.

Nice post, Jeff.  The little dig about not all developers preserving and restoring the original farmhouses didn't go unnoticed...  ;o)

Jeff- Sounds like Valleybrook Estates in Manheim Township is a good place for someone who wants LOW HOA fees and not have to work in the yard. All they have to do is update the interior and then they have a nice little piece of the American Dream!  I know you would be the best agent any buyer could choose to help them find just the right home.
