Carriage JPEGGround is Broken For New Townhome Models At Luxury Neighborhood in Sought-After Locale

MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. – – The Legacy of Mountain Lakes has taken significant steps forward as it moves towards its preview sales opening later this spring in this sought after Morris County Borough.

Ground was recently broken for new townhome model buildings which will feature professionally-decorated residences that represent both of the community’s two distinct housing collections – the Signature and Carriage Series, according to HornRock Properties, developer of the intimate collection of just 39 residences rising on a distinctly suburban site.

The homes are expected to be completed and ready for viewing this summer.

“This is a very exciting time at The Legacy as we quickly progress toward our preview opening,” says David Hornblass of HornRock Properties.

“The model homes will play an important role in the sales program by allowing prospects to see first-hand the elegance, luxury and appeal that will differentiate The Legacy from any similar community in this area. In the meantime, we plan to provide hard hat walking tours of these homes as construction progresses and detailed information including brochures, renderings and more to allow our buyers to make an informed decision on the purchase.”

Preview sales will open shortly for those who have added their name to the VIP priority list at The Legacy. To participate in the preview opening, interested prospects can still join the growing list by visiting

“We’ll only be releasing a limited number of homes in our initial phase and we expect these residences to be snapped up quickly,” David says. “As a result, we’ve already had a large number of prospects join our VIP List to ensure they are one of the first through the door.”

Townhomes are expected to be preview priced from the upper-$500,000s for the “Carriage Home Series” and upper-$700,000s for the “Signature Series.”

The two separate housing collections offered at The Legacy both boast tremendous interior spaces and a host of upscale design elements. The “Carriage Home Series” will feature three-story townhomes ranging from 2,162 to 2,236 finished square-feet of luxury space. The three-bedroom residences will boast 2 full baths and 2 half baths and one- or two-car garages.

The “Signature Home Series” will feature two-story townhomes with unfinished walk-out basements and two-car garages. The three-bedroom, 2 ½-bath homes will range from 2,829-2,853 square feet with the standard layout, but buyers who purchase optional upgrade packages can expand their living space to more than 4,700 square feet. Optional finished basements, elevators and loft spaces which can be used as an additional bedroom with full bath are available. Each of the residences will back to wooded areas for additional privacy.

“We expect this community and these homes to have broad appeal to homebuyers,” adds Maurice Hornblass, also of HornRock Properties. “For example, empty-nesters who want the opportunity to reside in an upscale care-free environment, yet still remain close to friends and family in northern New Jersey will certainly appreciate the prestigious Mountain Lakes location.

“Professional couples will be attracted to the spacious, well-appointed interior layouts which provide plenty of room for sophisticated living, entertaining family and friends and so much more.”

Situated at the intersection of Morris Avenue and Fanny Road, Legacy of Mountain Lakes offers a superb Morris County location characterized by winding country roads, bucolic lakes and heavily wooded terrain. While the community unquestionably offers a prestigious address, a close proximity to major transportation including Routes 46, 287 and 80 also brings residents minutes from world class shopping, entertainment and major business centers.

“The shops, services, museums and theatres of historic Morristown are just 15 minutes away and there are a number of golf courses, country clubs and other entertainment pursuits for Mountain Lakes residents to enjoy,” says David. “What‘s more, New Jersey Transit trains at the Mountain Lakes station whisk commuters into Newark Penn Station, Hoboken and New York City.”

Home to countless parks and nine lakes, Mountain Lakes provides a variety of recreational activities right in the heart of one of northern New Jersey’s most picturesque settings. The Borough boasts one of the state’s top public schools systems, with Mountain Lakes High School recently ranked number 7 on New Jersey Monthly’s 2012 annual ranking of Top Public High Schools in New Jersey.
