When moving to an active adult community, homebuyers usually have to part ways with a room they have relied on for decades: their basement. Whether it is an extra recreation room or a trusted storage space, people grow attached to their basements and want to maintain this additional space for all the uses they enjoyed in the past. That’s one the many major benefits that The Pointe at Turnbury can offer it’s residents. Having a basement gives them the opportunity to expand their living and storage space, while still enjoying the lifestyle of one of New Jersey’s top active adult communities.
Millennium Homes is one of the few developers to include basements in their homes in an active adult community. The Pointe at Turnbury basements are between 800 and 1,100 square feet of space, depending on the model, offering a great deal of flexible space for the homeowner to enjoy and use.
“We’re responding to an overwhelming market need,” said Lisa Macchi, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Millennium Homes. “We have had numerous homebuyers come in who are specifically looking for homes with basements. So the decision to open a phase that includes basements reflects this growing demand from homebuyers for more storage space and more living space.”
The lack of basements in many active adult communities creates a problem for couples downsizing from a larger home who are used to extra space. Residents of The Pointe at Turnbury find having this basement space makes their lives easier. They appreciate the extra storage space because they don’t want to part with possessions they use occassionaly or ones that have sentimental value. Other residents have finished their basements and converted them into spaces that complement their lifestyles, such as an exercise area, home office, expanded entertainment room or a playroom for their grandchildren.
“For a relatively modest cost, they have increased the value and livability of their home,” Ms. Macchi said. “We believe this is one of the many things that puts The Point at Turnbury ahead of the competition. Not only does this property offer an active lifestyle and convenience for commuters, but also a large basement that is fully customizable. You can do whatever you want with that space.”
