“Luxury Bargain Hunters” Flock to The Pointe at Turnbury

The Pointe at Turnbury offers active adult home buyers value, with luxury appointments, resort-like amenities and a desirable location near downtown Princeton at a more affordable price than most other high-end homes.

Bargain hunting means more than just good prices at The Pointe at Turnbury. While speculators try to scoop up the state’s few remaining foreclosure deals and fixer-upper properties at low prices, buyers at The Pointe at Turnbury are focusing on the quality end of the value equation. Prices have remained stable, yet active adult buyers agree that the spacious layout, luxury appointments and location just outside of Princeton qualifies The Pointe at Turnbury as a tremendous bargain.

“In spite of the market fluctuation and correction, our prices have been stable and our sales have been strong,” said Lisa Macchi, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Millennium Homes, the developer of The Pointe at Turnbury. “We’re finding that the majority of our buyers are coming from northern New Jersey, central New Jersey and the outer boroughs of New York. They’re attracted to The Pointe at Turnbury because of its central location, proximity to shopping, mass transit and downtown Princeton, and the fact that it is a great place to live for the money.”

Every dollar goes a long way at The Pointe at Turnbury. Prices for a 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath home with 2,106 square feet of interior space start at $319,990. The homes come with luxury appliances and upscale finishing touches usually found in homes that are twice as expensive, such as gourmet kitchens and soaring, finished loft spaces. Basements are available in some homes, a feature rarely included in active adult communities.

Residents of The Pointe at Turnbury also enjoy a 7,500 square foot clubhouse and a jam-packed schedule of activities, parties and day trips they can participate in at their leisure. Full-time Activities Director Lorraine Curtin develops the schedule and coordinates many of the community’s clubs. Exercise classes, trips to restaurants and discussions with guest speakers are offered, with many activities taking place in the evening to accommodate working residents.

“This is a 55 and better community, but it’s a very young 55 and better. Many of our residents still work, so the activities schedule is developed with that in mind,” Ms. Curtin said. “People want to move into this place because there is a lot going on and it’s in an ideal location. And the neighbors are so friendly. Last Sunday we had a Memorial Day barbecue by the pool and more than 70 people came. Many people brought their own dishes to share with everyone and it was a great time.”

Ms. Curtin organized a golf outing for many residents a few weeks ago and last summer, she organized a boat trip along the New Jersey coast. General interest seminars are held once a month and meet and greets with live entertainment are held quarterly. Clubs such as the poker club, knitting club and book club meet in the clubhouse on their own schedule.

For those who prefer less organized recreation, the clubhouse includes a grand salon, entertaining kitchen, sunroom, flat-screen TVs, game and card room and a billiard room. A state-of-the-art fitness center, outdoor heated pool, spa, putting green and bocce courts provide hours of additional entertainment.

“The full-time activities director and lively, active clubhouse are just a few of the attributes that make The Pointe at Turnbury stand out,” Ms. Macchi said. “Buyers have discovered that The Pointe is one of the best values in the marketplace because of the luxury lifestyle experience we offer to our residents.”

The Pointe at Turnbury boasts five expansive floorplans and a total of 190 units, offering residents all of the conveniences of owning a home with very little upkeep. All units feature an array of high-end standard amenities, with dens and full basements available in some homes.
