Five Homes Already Sold in Charming New Da Vinci Drive Neighborhood
MONMOUTH JUNCTION, N.J., April 16, 2012 — With a spectacular new clubhouse rising, two new floor plans available and a stunning new section of homes underway, the 55+ community of Villagio in South Brunswick just minutes from Princeton continues to lead the Renaissance in New Jersey’s active adult housing market.
The incomparable Tuscan-inspired active adult community has been busier than a bustling Italian piazza — and home buyers are responding. Many are visiting Villagio to tour the charming new Da Vinci Drive neighborhood, where five of the 20 home sites have recently sold.
The cobblestone-curbed Da Vinci Drive neighborhood is a peaceful section of Villagio that is just a short walk from a serene pond, waterfront amphitheater, tennis courts, basketball courts and other amenities. Mediterranean-style, single-family homes with rich, earthy hues and stucco facades are rising, creating a vibrant streetscape and providing buyers with a number of homes to choose from.
“Activity here at Villagio is at a fever pitch, highlighted by the new construction activity taking place on Da Vinci Drive,” notes Jeri Gaita, Marketing Specialist of Villagio. “With visitors, demand and sales on the rise, we decided to move forward on a number of new homes, and now have an exciting selection of homes available in various stages of construction, from foundation to ready-for-occupancy. This gives our customers the flexibility to choose the delivery date that best suits their needs; whether it’s a quick move-in date or one that’s further out that gives them the time they need to sell their existing home while also selecting the design, finishes, and décor of their new dream home.”
Developer Byron-Hill Homebuilders, the New Jersey-based home builder with decades of experience developing luxury estate homes in the exclusive suburban communities of Marlboro, Holmdel and Colts Neck, also recently upgraded the popular Siena and Sorano home designs at Villagio, based on customer feedback. Two master suites have been added to the homes and many popular features are now included in the basic design, making them even more ideal for entertaining family and friends. A new model home reflecting these changes is under construction and will open early this summer.
Construction is also underway on Villagio’s most highly-anticipated amenity, Club Verona, which will be the jewel of the community. The club will provide residents with a central gathering place overlooking a landscaped public piazza and a scenic pond. Guests at the club will enter into a beautiful hotel-like lobby which will give way to a full range of fitness facilities, private gathering spaces, an outdoor pool and hot tub. Outdoor amenities such as bocce courts, a horseshoe pit, and a putting green will also be added.
Byron Hill Homebuilders has fashioned a creative plan for Villagio that expertly blends just 210 luxurious single-family homes with beautiful ponds, cul-de-sacs and cobblestone-curbed streets — all inspired by the old-world charm of Mediterranean design. The community has struck a chord with today’s sophisticated home buyers who are embracing Villagio’s one-of-a-kind custom homes that stand out from the cookie-cutter designs that dominate today’s active adult market. The community also offers buyers with at least one person over the age of 55 an opportunity to give up the expense and responsibility of maintaining a large single-family home and property without sacrificing any of the living space. The distinctive two-, three- and four-bedroom homes, priced from $479,000, feature from approximately 2,750 square feet of living space and combine classic Italian architectural elements with modern amenities.
Dramatic exterior features include towering Palladium-style windows, intricate roofing details and wrought iron balcony railings. Stunning interiors boast expansive Master Bedroom Suites on either the first or second floor or both, additional suites for guests, optional elevators for easy access if you chose to add a basement, gourmet kitchens, formal two-story foyers and living rooms, spacious dining areas, soaring ceiling heights, lofts, covered patios and optional full basements which can be transformed into theater rooms, gyms, elegant home offices, etc.
Residents of Villagio live la dolce vita in more ways than one. The community offers residents a taste of the laid back, Italian countryside lifestyle right in the heart of New Jersey, in a town that Money magazine recently named one of its “Top 100 Places to Live”. Several major highways are easily accessible, and the Princeton Junction train station is nearby, offering service to Manhattan and Philadelphia via transfer. Downtown Princeton is a 10-minute drive away, providing residents with endless opportunities for boutique shopping, gourmet dining, culture and entertainment.
