MONMOUTH JUNCTION, N.J. – Club Verona is quickly transforming from a unique vision to an exciting reality as construction of the highly-anticipated recreational amenity is well underway at Villagio, the Tuscan Village-inspired active adult community in South Brunswick.
Five months after more than 50 excited homeowners and prospective buyers joined officials from developer Byron-Hill Homebuilders at the community’s waterfront amphitheater and gazebo to celebrate its groundbreaking, Club Verona is now nearly fully framed and taking shape.
When completed, the architecturally-distinctive Club Verona will overlook a beautifully-landscaped public piazza and scenic pond, delivering a new layer of luxury to the community and making it a recreational focal point of Villagio.
“Club Verona was designed to provide our residents with a richly satisfying resort lifestyle experience,” notes Jeri Gaita, Marketing Specialist of Villagio, which features just 210 expansive single-family homes with tremendous detail and unsurpassed charm and elegance.
“The clubhouse and its grounds will be the focal point and social hub of the community. It will pamper residents with amenities that reflect the overall ambiance of Villagio and provide a gathering place for residents with a wide variety of interests. Residents who enjoy the relaxed, Mediterranean charm of life here at Villagio will appreciate everything about Club Verona.”
Club Verona will feature a grand hotel-like lobby, full range of fitness facilities, private gathering places and an outdoor pool and hot tub that complement the authentic Continental flavor of the community’s homes and landscape. Carefully placed tennis courts, a reflecting pond, a putting green and central piazza with a fountain will border the clubhouse. Residents will enjoy a large swimming pool, as well as an exclusive network of bicycle paths that encircle the perimeter of the community and extend for miles.
The clubhouse and pool will enhance the already plentiful outdoor recreation space at Villagio. Evening musical performances at the waterfront amphitheater and casual strolls through the community’s many cobblestone-curbed streets and peaceful cul-de-sacs are just some of the ways residents savor the Villagio lifestyle every day.
Club Verona will be a natural extension to the luxurious homes at Villagio which evoke Old World craftsmanship and the serenity of Italian countryside living. The homes were masterfully designed by an experienced custom home builder with a passion for architecture, individuality and lifestyle, not mass-produced from cookie-cutter designs found throughout the marketplace. Byron-Hill drew on the company’s decades of experience developing luxury estate homes in New Jersey’s exclusive suburban communities of Marlboro, Holmdel and Colts Neck when designing Villagio, focusing on the lifestyle needs of its customers while remaining true to its custom home building roots.
Priced from $479,500, the distinctive two-, three- and four-bedroom homes at Villagio feature from approximately 2,750 square feet of living space and combine classic Italian architectural elements with modern amenities to create a truly exceptional and unique living experience. Dramatic interior spaces boast expansive Master Bedroom Suites on either the first or second floor or both, additional suites for guests, spacious dining areas, soaring ceiling heights, lofts, covered patios and optional full basements, with an additional option for elevators. Palladium-style windows, intricate roofing details and wrought iron balcony railings contribute to the uncompromising quality and grandeur of the homes.
Located less than 10 minutes from downtown Princeton in a town Money magazine recently named one of its “Top 100 Places to Live”, Villagio is well-connected in spite of its tranquility. The community is adjacent to a Village shopping destination and near several major highways and the Princeton Junction train station. Manhattan and Philadelphia are both about an hour away by train. Downtown Princeton provides residents with cultural stimulation and endless opportunities for quality shopping and dining.
