SOMERSET, N.J.–- The grandeur of living in a resort-like neighborhood, the relaxed lifestyle offered by a maintenance-free environment and single-level condominium floorplans are all attributes that are drawing active adult buyers to The Enclave at Canal Walk.
The upscale collection of two-bedroom homes is reporting a surge in sales activity, leaving just four homes remaining in the community’s first residential building and resulting in the start of construction on its second housing phase, according to Premier Development, which is developing Canal Walk on the border of the historic Delaware-Raritan Canal in Somerset County’s Franklin Township.
Included in the condominiums still available in the initial building are a limited number of “Immediate Occupancy” residences which are loaded with designer upgrades and provide move-in dates just weeks after signing a contract. Some of the most popular and spacious designs are offered in the “Immediate Occupancy” homes, including a Bayberry with sitting room and an Andover floorplan.
“For some buyers, it’s the gracious living spaces and ease that comes with being able to simply turn the key and head out to visit nearby family and friends or escape to Florida in the colder months,” says Sales Manager Theresa Feo.
“For others, it’s the wealth of world class social and recreational facilities found right outside their door. In either case, today’s active adults are clearly impressed with the elegance and grace offered at the Enclave at Canal Walk.”
Residences at the Enclave range in size from 1,500 square feet to more than 1,800 square feet and are priced from $224,900. Six magnificent two-bedroom housing designs are offered featuring spacious and open floorplans, large living rooms, gourmet kitchens with Corian™ countertops and GE™ appliances and huge amounts of cabinet and pantry space, nine foot ceilings, hardwood entry foyer flooring, master bedroom suites have large walk-in closets and lavish master baths with ceramic tile floors, seated showers and oversized soaking tubs.
“Homes in these elevator buildings also offer outdoor space and private balconies, as well as indoor parking in an underground garage,” Ms. Feo points out.
The Enclave’s lively and active environment is centered around the 32,000-square-foot Premier Club at Canal Walk. The main clubhouse at Canal Walk offers an ideal social setting and is one of the largest and most comprehensive in the state. Featured inside are a heated indoor pool and whirlpool, a spa equipped with steam room and sauna and fully-equipped fitness room. There’s also a library, craft room, billiards room and separate men’s and women’s card rooms for gathering with neighbors and friends. In addition, a business center banquet hall and lounges are also available inside the clubhouse.
Tennis and bocce courts and a putting green are also offered on-site, adjacent to the refreshing outdoor pool and spa. Additional services include a beauty salon and a massage and wellness center.
Canal Walk’s 300-acre site bordering the historic Delaware and Raritan Canal provides residents with easy access to some of Somerset County’s most popular outdoor activities. For example, walking trails have been carefully laid out to connect with sections of the old canal that have been preserved as public open space . Fishing, canoeing and much more are also found on the well known waterway and there are several other leisurely-pursuits available at central New Jersey’s many golf courses, gardens, parks, museums and art exhibits.
The community’s accessible location gives it a definite advantage. Nearby Route 287 provides quick access to the business and entertainment centers of New York City, Bergen County, Central New Jersey and Westchester County. There is also a planned shuttle bus at Canal Walk to take residents to local shopping centers, golf courses and township activities.
