Larken Associates is pleased to announce its rebranded signature series of active adult communities in New Jersey and Pennsylvania which will cater to the growing number of 55-plus homebuyers looking for resort-style living, magnificent homes, desirable locations and value-driven pricing.
Now called “Horizons-Larken Associates 55+ Communities,” the neighborhoods have been designed to satisfy all the lifestyle needs of active adults, with a focus on active, well-rounded atmospheres fostered by an abundance of on-site world-class recreational and social amenities, the ease and convenience of a maintenance-free environment and the high quality homes for which the New Jersey-based developer is known.
“For active adults, it’s about more than just a home, it’s also about the lifestyle,” says Marilyn Cornelia, Larken’s Director of Sales and Marketing.” At Horizons, they get the best of all worlds.
“Our spacious and well-appointed single-family, townhome and condominium designs will allow them to maintain the same level of comfort and luxury they’ve grown accustom to, while the offering of five-star amenities at each community will fill their day with fun and exciting activities and provide a resort-like lifestyle for them to enjoy with friends and neighbors. And they receive all this at incredible prices that ensure they receive the most value for their money.”
In New Jersey, Larken Associates will offer Delaware Crossing at Morris Park in its line of Horizon Communities. The collection of attached single-family patio homes for those 55 and older in the suburban Warren County Township of Lopatcong has already become a popular destination for adult purchasers and renters who seek an activity-rich environment.
Delaware Crossing’s comprehensive amenity package is highlighted by a magnificent heated pool which is now open for the summer season. Additional outdoor amenities opening in the weeks ahead include bocce and tennis courts, shuffleboard and a horseshoe court. There are also activities and events being planned in the professionally-decorated clubhouse at Delaware Crossing, which features a billiard room, card room and fully-equipped kitchen and fitness center complete with steam and whirlpool rooms.
While there’s certainly plenty to do on-site, Delaware Crossing’s unique location in the heart of northwest New Jersey offers access to many shopping and entertainment possibilities, as well as one of the state’s natural treasures—the New Jersey Skylands where an assortment of parks, lakes, golf and tennis courses, as well as other outdoor recreational areas can be found.
“There are countless opportunities available in the area,” indicates Ms. Cornelia. “From rolling hills and meadows to the riverbanks of the Delaware River, Lopatcong has many outdoor pursuits to be enjoyed.”
Warren County is also home to Hawkers Hollow Golf Course, Architect’s Golf Course and the Warren County Fairgrounds, and other charming activities such as antique shopping and wineries. On the other side of the Delaware River is Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley, providing access to seasonal resorts and amenities such as skiing and golf.
