WEST ORANGE, N.J. – With the Memorial Day weekend opening of Vizcaya’s luxury outdoor pool nearing, residents are rediscovering the joys of living in one of the most scenic, amenity-laden gated communities in New Jersey.
Residents of the private West Orange community enjoy numerous upscale amenities and services year round, but Vizcaya truly stands out when the summer sun is shining. The spectacular outdoor pool is the main hub of activity in warm weather months. Residents and a few guests gather to relax in lounge chairs, wade in the pool’s temperate water and take in the stunning mountaintop views in comfort and style. The atmosphere is social and relaxing, with residents coming and going from their nearby homes as they please, just as they would at a five-star resort.
Vizcaya’s beautiful community terrace is another amenity that contributes to the resort-like atmosphere. Arranged like the grand porch of a Napa Valley chateau, the terrace comes alive at this time of year, offering views of the pool and the bucolic tree-lined vista that surrounds the community. Dozens of comfortable chairs and tables offer residents and their guests a charming setting for afternoon tea, evening cocktails or pleasant conversation at any time of the day.
“This is always an exciting time of year at Vizcaya, because the warm weather allows us to operate at our full potential,” said Lisa Macchi, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Millennium Homes, the Developer of Vizcaya. “The outdoor pool is one of the jewels of the community, but there is also a lot to do away from the water, such as tennis or strolling along our landscaped walking paths. And, of course, residents can continue to enjoy all of the amenities that are available to them year round. Even with the outdoor pool open, some residents prefer to start their day by swimming laps in the indoor pool.”
Located in one of the most charming residential areas in the state, Vizcaya offers home buyers the experience of living in a country estate right in the heart of suburban Essex County. The main building rises majestically above a tree-lined ridge top, offering sweeping views of the horizon. The impressive, European-inspired architecture combines modern interior spaces and old world charm. The building incorporates a traditional stone façade with gleaming white trim, stylish railings, elegant dormers and rows of bay windows.
