York, Pennsylvania, is also known as White Rose City and is located just south of the state capital. The city has a blend of architecture spanning from the 18th century to today, giving it a unique look. There are a wide variety of houses for sale in the area including historic and more modern homes alike. There are also numerous options for new construction, including three- and four-bedroom homes in several residential communities.
York was originally laid out in 1741 and became a city in 1887. There are several historic districts featuring 19th century homes, but there are also neighborhoods with new-home communities within the city’s limits. Addington Reserve is a quiet community right in the heart of York. The secluded neighborhood has sidewalks and open space for children to play and is just minutes from shopping and entertainment. Stonegate at Regents Glen is another popular community. Residents can choose from three floorplans that provide low-maintenance, energy-efficient townhomes. The gated community is beautifully manicured and provides a country club setting just three minutes from major highways. Jackson Heights Villas is a community filled with gently curving streets and beautiful walkways. Private patios provide homeowners with peace and relaxation. These homes offer all necessary amenities on one floor, and the outside maintenance and grounds keeping is taken care of for the homeowner.
Harley Davidson is a major employer in York. The large motorcycle factory employs almost half of the city’s total workers. York Barbell is also located within the city and is a reseller of barbells and other weight-training and body-building equipment. There are a number of other manufacturers including companies specializing in hydro-power water turbines, an HVAC systems supplier and a company that produces animal crackers. York is a short drive from Pennsylvania’s capital, Harrisburg. This easy commute gives residents of the city access to jobs in any number of career fields including construction, educational and health services, business services or leisure and hospitality.
