With the traditionally strong fall selling season upon us, we’re taking a look at a segment of homebuying that has seen a dramatic increase as the days grow shorter and the temperatures decline

Sales continue to spur at many new-home communities geared towards active adults aged 55 and older. One such development is the Enclave at Canal Walk, the exclusive neighborhood rising at the well-established Canal Walk active adult community in Somerset County’s Franklin Township, where active adults in large numbers are showing great interest in the community’s newest condominium phase.

Several of the homes in the second housing section at the Enclave at Canal Walk have already been reserved throughout the early fall selling season, according to Premier Development, which is developing Canal Walk bordering the historic Delaware and Raritan Canal.

“We typically see an increase in sales activity during the fall season as homebuyers turn their attention away from the relaxing summer months,” Sales Manager George Adinolfi. “However, the amount of buyer interest our second condominium phase has received so early in the fall season has been well beyond what we anticipated.

“Its clear buyers have been inspired by these elegantly-designed homes and our competitive new pricing from just $224,900. We fully expect this momentum to intensify as we progress with construction on the latest offering of homes.”

The Enclave at Canal Walk has made its mark on the active adult housing market thanks to its unique blend of maintenance-free condominium living, elegant one-level designs and a resort-like environment.

“The Enclave has appealed to active adults who want the peace of mind that comes with condominium living and the activity-rich lifestyle offered at a community where the comprehensive roster of recreational amenities is already complete and open,” says Mr. Adinolfi. “Here, they can simply turn the key and head out to visit nearby family and friends or escape to Florida in the colder months.

“When they return home to the Enclave, a spacious and well-appointed home and country-club inspired neighborhood awaits them. An abundance of activities — such as art class and water aerobics –and social clubs are available immediately. And they appreciate our location minutes from the fine restaurants and shops in downtown Princeton and New Brunswick and cultural and educational opportunities at Princeton University such as the Princeton University Lecture Series.”

Residences at the Enclave range in size from 1,500 square feet to more than 1,800 square feet. 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 the elevator buildings also offer outdoor space and balconies, as well as indoor parking,” Mr. Adinolfi 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.

“And of course, the community’s location near the historic Delaware and Raritan Canal offers direct access to recreational amenities such as the community’s walking trails which have been carefully laid out to connect with sections of the old canal that have been preserved as public open space,” comments Mr. Adinolfi.

Activities such as fishing and canoeing can also be found on the Delaware and Raritan Canal. There are several other leisurely-pursuits available at Somerset County’s many golf courses, gardens, parks, museums and art exhibits.
