SOMERSET COUNTY, N.J. – Summerfields, the desirable non-age restricted residential community in Somerset County’s Franklin Township, has unquestionably made a strong impression with today’s homebuyers nearly selling all of its initial phase of single-family homes in record time.
The intimate neighborhood is now poised to build on that success with the release of the newest collection of upscale townhomes, according to Premier Development, developer of Summerfields. Pre-construction pricing starts from the mid-$300,000s for the new townhomes which offer many of the same attributes that have already made Summerfields the area’s most popular housing choice — affordability, luxury and a fantastic location – with the added benefit of a maintenance-free lifestyle.
The three-bedroom townhomes will provide approximately 1,900 square feet of luxury living space and boast 2.5 bathrooms, hardwood floors on the first floor, kitchens with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, one-car garages and full basements.
“We had many homebuyers who were very interested in the single-family residences at Summerfields, but also wanted the ease and convenience that comes with a townhome lifestyle,” says Sales Manager Sally Christie. “To accommodate these buyers, we’ve taken all of the popular features of our single-family designs and incorporated them into these new townhome layouts to provide the best-of-both worlds.
“Judging by how well received the single-family homes have been we fully expect our initial townhomes collection to sell in short order.”
In addition to the townhomes, a limited number of single-family homesites are available at Summerfields priced from $439,900.
Residents of the quaint Summerfields neighborhood benefit from on-site recreational and social amenities, including an optional clubhouse facility with fitness center, outdoor pool and tot lots, as well as walking and biking paths.
“Homeowners will also have the added pleasure of residing in Somerset County which includes some of the state’s most treasured natural recreational resources, including the historic Delaware-Raritan Canal where activities such as fishing and canoeing can be found,” says Ms. Christie. “And there are several other leisurely-pursuits available at Somerset County’s many golf courses, gardens, museums, art exhibits and parks including Colonial Park located right in the Summerfields neighborhood which includes a 1.4 mile fitness paracourse, three fishing ponds, softball field and the Lois Howe Nature Trail.”
Homebuyers at Summerfields exemplify the wide appeal of Franklin Township, Ms. Christie continues.
“We have a large number of young couples and professionals ready to purchase their first home in an area that’s ideal for raising a family,” she says. “They are coming to us from throughout the state, whether it’s the central and southern New Jersey suburbs or the popular urban municipalities on northern New Jersey’s Hudson River “Gold Coast.”
Summerfields’ location offers easy access to major highways such as Route 287, the Garden State Parkway and the New Jersey Turnpike, allowing residents to quickly reach the business, shopping and entertainment districts throughout the region, including Princeton, New Brunswick, New York City and Newark Airport. The community is also minutes from public transportation at the New Brunswick Train Station and just 20-minutes from the Outer Bridge Crossing into Staten Island.
Summerfields is next in a long line of distinguished and award-winning residential communities developed by Premier Development in the Somerset section of Franklin Township.
“Summerfields follows in the footsteps of our successful communities in Somerset such as our fast-selling Canal Walk active adult neighborhood which is directly across the street and our Cedar Manor community located nearby,” Ms. Christie adds. “This distinct region of the Township has proven to appeal to homebuyers seeking the ideal small-town, suburban environment without sacrificing close proximity to major commuter highways and the popular business centers of central and northern New Jersey.”
