SOMERSET, N.J. – Buyers continue to purchase the upscale and spacious homes at Summerfields in Somerset County’s Franklin Township at an impressive pace Premier Development, developer of the popular community, is reporting tremendous sales success in both of the distinct housing collections at the non-age restricted suburban neighborhood. Spurred by the debut of two model residences, the “Townhome Collection” has seen a significant surge in spring activity with nearly 50% of its homes now sold.
“Our models have allowed prospective homebuyers to see exactly how much home they receive for their money,” says Sally Christie, Sales Manager for Premier Development. “The value offered in the townhomes is simply too good for many to pass up. Visitors realize the combination of upscale homes, country-like atmosphere and attractive pricing creates a buying opportunity unsurpassed in this market.”
The final phase of single-family homes has enjoyed equally strong sales at Summerfields, recently surpassing the important milestone of 50% sold.
“These residences offer many of the same attributes as the townhomes in terms of luxury, value and location,” Ms. Christie continues. “Homebuyers who want to enjoy all this in a single-family lifestyle realize this phase is the last opportunity to purchase one of these desirable layouts.”
Priced from just $374,900, the spacious townhomes at Summerfields feature approximately 1,900 square feet of luxury living space with hardwood throughout the first floor, gourmet kitchen with granite counters, stainless steel appliance package, dramatic two-story family room, bathrooms with upgraded tile package, full basement, one-car attached garage, paver driveway and patio.
Seven single-family designs are offered at Summerfields, including the Sussex, a four-bedroom, 3 ½ bath design that includes a first-floor master bedroom or “in-law” suite. Homes range from approximately 2,000 to approximately 3,400 square-feet and are priced from $464,900.
“With more than 140 families now living at Summerfields, this has become a very active and vibrant community,” Ms. Christie points out. “Spring is upon us and neighbors can be seen out in their yards and in the neighborhood socializing and enjoying the family-friendly environment. It’s an atmosphere many are anxious to become a part of.”
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.”
