LAWRENCE, N.J. – The Holidays are a cherished time to be close to home to celebrate the spirit of the season with family and friends — just one of the many reasons why so many children with active adult parents are pleased to have discovered Carriage Park at Lawrence, the condominium community for those aged 55 and older in this Mercer County Town.
The intimate neighborhood, which is conveniently located minutes from downtown Princeton, allows the entire family to gather during the busy Holiday season and delight the company of children and grandchildren, according to Alton Evans, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for The Kalian Companies, which is developing Carriage Park at Lawrence, one of the few communities geared specifically towards active adults in Mercer County and the surrounding areas.
“While active adults seek the ease and convenience of maintenance-free, resort-like neighborhoods, they also recognize it is important to spend this special time of year creating cherished memories with loved ones,” says Mr. Evans. “Many are opting for neighborhoods that allow them to be nearby to watch grandchildren open presents on Christmas morning, enjoy special Holiday dinners or simply reminisce about special times with close friends.”
Only a few opportunities remain to purchase a well-appointed residence at a dramatically reduced price from just $139,900 at Carriage Park. Carriage Park at Lawrence features a mix of 17 different one-and two-bedroom floor plans offering up to 1,646 sq.-ft. of living space and featuring a host of distinctive architectural elements and appointments.
“Where else can active adults reside in a true lifestyle community complete with resort-like amenities and a desirable location at a price point unheard of in today’s market,” says Mr. Evans. “The appeal of Carriage Park at Lawrence has spurred sales and left just a few homes remaining at this incredible reduced price, meaning time is quickly running out for those who want to get the most home for their money.”
Homes at Kalian’s Carriage Park at Lawrence offer “Immediate Occupancy” dates – an added advantage for buyers who placed their current home on the market with a competitive price tag and now face the difficult task of finding a new active adult neighborhood in time for the closing of the residence they’ve sold.
Purchasers can be residing in their new Carriage Park residence 30 days after contract – a perfect scenario for those who want to enjoy a relaxed, care-free lifestyle and ease the burden of finding a new home quickly or want to take advantage of Federal Tax Credits that have been expanded to those who have owned their current home for at least five years. The program – which was added as a part of the government’s economic stimulus program — allows eligible buyers to receive up to $6,500 in tax credits if they close on their home by June 30th, 2010.
“There are a large number of adult homebuyers who realize now is the time to trade-in older single-family homes and receive tremendous value when purchasing a brand new condominium in a community that offers the convenience of low-maintenance living and the pleasure of resort-style amenities,” adds Mr. Evans.
“This community meets their needs and more. Here, they receive well-designed homes, five star recreational and social diversions and value-driven prices. Most importantly, these residences are completed and ready for move-in.”
One of the first attributes visitors of Carriage Park at Lawrence notice is how activity-rich the community is. With the sales and information center situated in its magnificent 7,100 square-foot clubhouse, prospects enjoy the added dimension of immediately seeing the friendly and close-knit neighborhood environment that already exists here.
The professionally-decorated clubhouse is active with residents enjoying one of its many recreational and social amenities and more than willing to spend time speaking with potential buyers about their experience at Carriage Park at Lawrence.
The beautifully-designed clubhouse connects to a sparking outdoor pool with terrace. Residents are also always eager to use the walking trail which bends along the community’s tree line and makes for a wonderful casual stroll around the neighborhood. The two bocce courts, horseshoe courts, shuffleboard courts and a “free play” lawn area are just about completed as well.
Inside, the professionally-decorated clubhouse features a fitness center, great room, formal lobby, library and kitchen facilities. A billiard room, card room and craft room will be added as well.
The worry-free lifestyle offered at Carriage Park at Lawrence enables homeowners even more time to embrace the many recreational facilities. Residents here no longer have to be concerned with the daily hassle of lawn maintenance, exterior repairs and more.
