Buyers Respond to Elegant New Model Home in Desirable Morris County Borough
MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. – With tree-lined streets, rolling hills, stately homes and nine pristine lakes scattered within its borders, the Borough of Mountain Lakes is a community well-known for its scenic beauty. Families flock to the town for its excellent schools and its “tucked away” location in a peaceful corner of Morris County near major business and entertainment centers. Whether it is the allure of spending the day at a lake club or simply the desire to enjoy all of the attributes of a classic American small town, the community consistently ranks as one of New Jersey Monthly’s “Best Places to Live” in the state.
It’s no surprise, then, that homes in Mountain Lakes are in high demand. Recognizing the strong appetite for new construction homes in the community, developer HornRock Properties launched sales at Legacy of Mountain Lakes, an upscale collection of 39 townhomes. Now buyers can enjoy a spacious, new construction townhome at a price point that makes it an affordable option for many families looking for a Mountain Lakes address.
Two furnished models are available to tour at Legacy of Mountain Lakes. The new “Fernwood” model home, one of the two floor plans that comprise the Signature Series of homes at Legacy of Mountain Lakes, is drawing rave reviews from buyers. Guests who have toured the new model home appreciate the level of luxury and comfort that it offers, blending the relaxed, low-maintenance townhome lifestyle with the space, privacy and grandeur of a stately single-family home.
The Fernwood floor plan is a three-bedroom, 2.5-bath layout with 2,829 square feet and the option to upgrade to more living space. Merchandised by the prominent interior design firm Gacek Design, the open floor plan includes an expansive first floor great room with fireplace, access to an outdoor deck, designer kitchen with raised panel cabinetry and lustrous granite countertops, and a lavish master bedroom suite with a massive walk-in closet and a granite-clad master bath with Kohler™ fixtures.
The Fernwood model complements the highly-praised “Briarcliff” furnished model the community opened in February, which boasts a spacious three-bedroom, 2.5-bath layout with a walk-out, lower level recreation space.
“One thing we have heard over and over again from our guests is that they were expecting our model homes to be very nice, and we still exceeded their expectations,” said David Hornblass, a principal of HornRock Properties, the developer of Legacy of Mountain Lakes. “We have received a tremendous amount of positive feedback on our Fernwood design since debuting that model.”
Home buyers interested in making Legacy of Mountain Lakes their new home may want to schedule their visit as soon as possible, as the most desirable locations are going very quickly. In a town like Mountain Lakes, long known for its excellent schools, high quality-of-life and family-friendly atmosphere, homes do not sit on the open market for long.
Priced from $799,900, the two floor plans in the “Signature Home Series” at Legacy of Mountain Lakes feature three-bathrooms, unfinished walk-out basements, two-car garages and either 2,819 or 2,853 square-feet of luxury living space. Upgrade packages are available to expand to even more living space. Optional finished basements, elevators and loft spaces which can be used as an additional bedroom or flex space with full bath are available.
Legacy of Mountain Lakes also offers two additional designs in its “Carriage Home Series” collection. The “Carriage Home Series” features three-bedroom layouts with two full baths, two half baths and one- or two-car garages. The three-story townhomes range from 2,162 to 2,236 finished square-feet and are priced from $599,900.
“The Carriage Series particularly appeals to couples and young families looking to upgrade,” Maurice Hornblass added. “We have received a lot of inquiries from buyers in their 30s and 40s looking for a home in a family-friendly location, and they are pleasantly surprised to learn that not only can they afford Mountain Lakes, but they can afford a brand new townhome in our Carriage Series.”
Legacy of Mountain Lakes has proven to have broad appeal to a wide range of home buyers. Buyers to date have cited the community’s visually beautiful location, excellent quality-of-life and top-notch public school system, which boasts the 7th best high school in the state, according to the latest New Jersey Monthly ranking of Top Public High Schools in New Jersey, as motivating factors.
