SOMERSET, NJ – Premier Development has announced closings have begun on the newest upscale building in the Enclave at Canal Walk, a collection of lavishly-appointed residences located within this popular active adult community bordering the historic Delaware and Raritan Canal in Somerset County’s Franklin.
The move-in dates are well ahead of the projected development schedule, offering further proof Canal Walk is defying the odds and setting the bar for today’s active adult communities.
The announcement comes as sales activity in the overall Canal Walk community continues at an extremely impressive pace, exemplifying the fact today’s active adult buyers are ready, willing and able to purchase homes that offer the unrivaled value, high quality and resort-like lifestyle they’re looking for
“At Canal Walk, we’re experiencing a very different response than what’s typical of the current market ,” says George Adinolfi, Sales Manager for Premier Development, which is developing Canal Walk bordering the historic Delaware and Raritan Canal. “Our buyers recognize the incredible value that is available here thanks to a reduced pricing structure introduced last year and are acting on it quickly, resulting in a steady steam of sales dating back to last year.
“In fact, those hoping to also take advantage of this never-before-offered opportunity should visit our sales center soon. While Premier Development has remained committed to the reduction, we can’t sustain these prices much longer, meaning an increase can be expected soon.”
Demand at Canal Walk has been so strong, additional homesites at the community have been released for sale. In the Enclave, heightened buyer activity has resulted in the current sell-out of the community’s best-selling Andover, Bayberry and Cambridge designs in its initial condominium buildings, allowing the developer to offer for sale additional floorplans in the third housing section. The homes are pre-construction priced from $237,900. At the Reserve, a collection of Energy Star Certified detached single-family homes, demand has been equally as strong and prompting the release of additional homesites for immediate sale.
Residences at the Enclave range in size from 1,500 square feet to more than 1,760 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.
The Reserve at Canal Walk is highlighted by two distinctive designs – luxurious ranch-style residences which include the newly-introduced Concord model priced from just $357,900 and two-story homes priced from $439,900.
“We also have a limited number of Reserve Energy Star homes available for ‘Quick Delivery,” Mr. Adinolfi points out. “These three-bedroom, three bath residences with two-car garage feature numerous options and upgrades packaged in an attractive all-inclusive price starting at $529,900.”
Construction is well underway on two new model homes at the Reserve. Once completed, the models will join five existing models at the community. Some of the largest single-family designs are featured in the Ranch homes which offer up to approximately 2,500 square feet, two-and three-bedroom, 2 to 2.5 baths, and are located on oversized homesites. The residences are also being offered with new feature packages that will provide buyers with more interior options and more flexibility than ever before.
The new homes boast upscale standard appointments such as nine-foot first floor ceilings, hardwood flooring, convenient gas fireplaces and large eat-in kitchens with 42” cabinets, granite countertops and a full GE™ appliance package, including a self-cleaning range, space-saver microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator and washer and dryer.
Sumptuous master bedroom suites include tray ceilings and a master bath with a soaking tub and separate shower with built-in seat. The homes also include plenty of storage space which is always a major consideration for active adults.
In addition to the Ranch designs, a number of upscale two-story homes in the Reserve provide many of the same standard features as the ranch homes, as well as staircases with oak treads and dramatic oak railings.
“Both home styles provide incredible comfort and lower energy bills than similar homes because they are being developed under strict guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,” says Mr. Adinolfi.
Canal Walk also offers a selection of townhomes priced from $320,800 and providing “quick” occupancy dates.
The impressive homes at Canal Walk are only enhanced by its resort-inspired, country club lifestyle that is unrivaled by any comparable active adult community in central New Jersey. Highlighting the well-rounded, activity-rich environment is a private 32,000 square-foot clubhouse — the Premier Club at Canal Walk — which is one of the largest and most amenity-rich in the state. Featured inside are a heated pool and whirlpool, a spa with steam room, sauna and a fully-equipped fitness room. There’s also a library, crafts room, billiards room and separate men’s and women’s card rooms. In addition, a business center, banquet hall and lounges are available. Tennis, bocce courts and a putting green are adjacent to the refreshing outdoor pool and spa. Additional services include a beauty salon and a massage and wellness center.
“What separates Canal Walk from many other new active adult communities is that our world-class amenities are open and functioning, meaning a new lifestyle is awaiting homeowners from the day they arrive,” Mr. Adinolfi indicates. “We also have the added benefit of our unique location near the Delaware and Raritan Canal which offers direct access to amenities such as the community’s walking trails which have been laid out to connect with sections of the historic canal that have been preserved as public open space.”
Best of all, Canal Walk’s convenient location enables residents to receive the magnificent, relaxed lifestyle they desire, all the while remaining close to family, and world class malls and major supermarket shopping just minutes away. The community is a short trip from Route 287, offering easy access to major highways such as the Garden State Parkway and New Jersey Turnpike which allows children and grandchildren to visit within minutes.
