WEST ORANGE, N.J. – Pent-up demand for Vizcaya’s unique brand of upscale townhomes has led to a frenzy of sales activity at the ultra-luxurious gated community in West Orange.
Buyers who had been eagerly awaiting the debut of the limited-edition collection of nine townhomes on the north side of the Vizcaya estate wasted no time in staking their claim when pre-construction sales opened in February. More recently, new buyers as well as returning visitors who are back in the market have created an April sales rush. Many of these buyers are particularly attracted to the townhomes because they can enjoy a best-of-both-worlds scenario: the acclaimed Vizcaya lifestyle as well as the comfort and privacy of owning their own private home.
Although sales for the townhome series are well ahead of their projected sales pace, several premium locations are still available, including homes with views of the surrounding tree-lined hills, a serene pond, landscaped walking trails and the architecturally-distinct Vizcaya main building. Prices start in the $800,000s.
“I first visited Vizcaya with a friend who was thinking about moving here, and once I saw the townhomes, I decided that this was the place for me,” said a proud Vizcaya resident who recently moved to the community. “I purchased a townhome and I haven’t looked back. I rave about this place to anyone who will listen. No more aggravation or worry about maintaining a single-family home. I can travel and leave everything to the staff to take care of. I really enjoy my freedom living here at Vizcaya.”
The new series of townhomes include 2,895 square feet of living space, including a stunning gourmet kitchen with breakfast nook, large great room, elegant dining room and stunning, two-story entrance foyer.
The comfortable bedrooms are highlighted by an exceptional master suite, which features two walk-in closets, a sitting area, and a lavish master bath with shower, separate soaking tub and dual sinks. Millennium Homes, the developer of Vizcaya, has given buyers of the newly released townhomes a fresh option: the ability to choose between a four-bedroom plan or an alternative three-bedroom layout with more space and enhanced features in the master suite.
The townhomes also include lower level space with an open layout. Buyers have the option of upgrading the lower level to a finished space ideal for entertainment and hobbies, such as a media room, game room, wine cellar or tasting room with wet bar. An elevator option is available.
Located in the upscale community of West Orange, Vizcaya offers home buyers the experience of living in a country estate right in the heart of suburban Essex County. The building rises majestically above a tree-lined ridge top, offering sweeping views of the horizon. The main building incorporates a traditional stone façade with gleaming white trim, stylish railings, rows of bay windows, elegant dormers and a brilliant grand terrace.
Four distinct home types are available. The chateau-like main building houses Penthouses, Residences, Maisonettes and the community’s vast amenity spaces. Luxury Townhomes surround the main building on charming cul-de-sacs.
Residences with two to three bedrooms, 2.5-3 baths and up to 2,662 square feet of living space are priced from the upper $900,000s. Penthouses with three bedrooms, 3.5 baths and over 3,200 square feet of living space are priced from $1.5 million. Three-bedroom, 3.5 bath Maisonettes with 3,237 square feet of living space are priced from the $900,000s. All homeowners enjoy interior spaces with richly-appointed great rooms, gourmet kitchens and exceptional master-suites.
Vizcaya’s numerous amenities offer homeowners hours of entertainment and relaxation. White glove services include complimentary valet parking, gated security and 24-hour access to a concierge, who can help residents with everything from dinner reservations to dry cleaning. Amenities include heated indoor and outdoor pools, spa, sauna, steam room, massage rooms, fitness room, yoga/aerobics room, Grand Salon, media room, card rooms, tennis facilities and more. The grounds are immaculately kept and emergencies such as snowstorms are dealt with quickly, efficiently and with the convenience of residents in mind.
Vizcaya is a short drive away from several gourmet restaurants, local shops, boutiques, parks and entertainment venues. The acclaimed Paper Mill Playhouse and the Short Hills Mall are both nearby. The South Mountain Reservation and Turtle Back Zoo are just around the corner. Recreational opportunities abound with municipal and county parks, private and public golf courses, and preserved natural woodlands found throughout the 12 mile town.
Manhattan is a convenient 30-minute car ride away, while New Jersey Transit rail stations are nearby in Millburn and South Orange.
