Vibrant Lifestyle, Sense of Community Continues to Attract Active Adult Buyers
MONMOUTH JUNCTION, N.J. – Plates full of bagels and lox rested on ornate tablecloths, forks pressed firmly into thick slices of French toast and residents laughed and smiled with their neighbors at The Pointe at Turnbury’s post-holiday brunch on Sunday. The annual event was organized by the community’s Social Committee, an active group of residents who help plan a variety of recreational activities for their fellow residents to enjoy.
The post-holiday brunch is just one example of the vibrant lifestyle and strong sense of community that has helped propel The Pointe at Turnbury beyond the 70 percent sold mark. The development has grown from a collection of townhomes into a thriving neighborhood. Residents mingle with each other regularly, gathering by the clubhouse fireplace in the winter or by the pool in the summer. They enjoy parties, barbecues, day trips and golf outings with each other throughout the year with the same joy and enthusiasm they share during the holiday season.
“It is always exciting to start a new community, but what is really exciting is to see that community truly take shape, with residents developing new friendships,” said Lisa Macchi, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Millennium Homes, the developer of The Pointe at Turnbury. “The fact that more than 100 residents attended the post-holiday brunch shows people are engaging with one another. Sales remain strong because of the tremendous value buyers get for their dollar, but also because this is a community people want to be a part of.”
Many buyers also cite The Pointe at Turnbury’s amenity-laden clubhouse as the feature that finally won them over. The 7,500 square-foot clubhouse is right in the heart of the community, giving residents a central place to gather for daily recreation and group activities. It includes a grand salon, entertaining kitchen, sunroom, flat-screen TVs, game and card room, library, billiards room and a state-of-the-art fitness center. An outdoor heated pool, putting green and bocce courts provide hours of additional entertainment.
The Social Committee organizes a full schedule of activities at the clubhouse and constantly adjusts it, based on resident feedback. Fit-and-Trim classes, Yoga classes and book club meetings are among the regularly held events. Evening activities are often held to accommodate working residents.
