Using an eye focused on greener living, the Hillsborough, N.J.-based developer is now a participating builder in New Jersey ENERGY STAR® labeled homes program and is now offering comfortable and energy-efficient residences at the intimate Warren County single-family neighborhood. A number of homes models to be built at Belview Estates will meet strict guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and include energy-saving features that typically make them 20–30% more efficient than standard homes.
Features that will be found in the ENERGY STAR certified homes include Energy Star Andersen windows and sliding doors, high-efficient Energy Star Qualified heating and air conditioning systems and Energy Star G.E. Appliances. ENERY STAR homes are part of the New Jersey Clean Energy Program which was established by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities.
“We are pleased and excited to be participating in this program and take an eco- conscience approach to new home development,” says Marilyn Cornelia, Larken’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “Energy Star homes offer significant advantages for purchasers. Not only will these residences help protect our sensitive environment, they will use less energy and reduce monthly bills.”
Belview Estates offers 35 estate-inspired single-family homes priced from $719,990.
Since opening last fall, the community has quickly captured the attention of homebuyers with its convenient Warren County location, expansive homesites of a minimum of two-acres stretching up to seven acres and competitive prices incredible value when compared with similar upscale single-family neighborhoods further east.
“Our initial customers cite the community’s sprawling homesites as a significant factor for purchasing here,” notes Ms. Cornelia. “They also enjoy the fact that they will be coming home to a magnificent residence set in a quiet, retreat-like setting — not like the crowded and busy areas where they work or seek entertainment.”
Four and five-bedroom housing designs at Belview Estates range in size from approximately 3,100 to 4,800 square feet and are equipped with the latest in designer amenities and appointments, such as granite kitchen countertops, hardwood flooring, 10’ first floor ceilings, Jack and Jill Baths, princess suites, wood decks and three-car garages. Some residences are now being offered with special builder incentives which allow homebuyers to add significant value to their new home purchase.
Two majestic single-family homes are now being offered with “Quick Delivery” dates at Belview Estates. The homes come complete with a host of standard designer features and appointments and provide unique opportunities for buyers interested in enjoying suburban living in a luxurious brand new home just 60-90 days after signing a contract . Included in the “Quick Delivery” homes are two of the community’s most popular designs – the Beaumont priced from $799,990 and Ellington priced from $789,990.
“These homes allow interested homebuyers to move into their new residence shortly after purchasing it,” Ms. Cornelia points out. “It’s the ideal opportunity for those who want the benefits of living in a brand new home in a new residential neighborhood, but can’t afford to wait the typical 10-12 months for construction to be completed. Best of all, these homes are loaded with luxurious upgrades and buyers can still make certain selections to personalize the interiors, meaning they don’t have to sacrifice any luxury.”
In addition to high quality and well-designed homes, residents of Belview Estates will enjoy an activity-rich lifestyle convenient to a myriad of recreational pursuits.
“Lopatcong is well-known for its countless outdoor activities,” says Ms. Cornelia. “There are numerous parks throughout the area, in addition to widespread recreational activities along the scenic Delaware River. Seasonal activities include golfing at the Hawkers Hollow Golf Course, enjoying the Warren County Fairgrounds, skiing in the nearby Lehigh Valley and sampling the area’s numerous wineries.”
“Lopatcong is also noted for high-rated quality schools. In addition, commuters find easy access to business centers in central New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania via Routes 22 and 57 plus Interstate 78.”
