PARAMUS, NJ – City sidewalks may be dressed in Holiday style, but homebuyers in large numbers are deciding it’s the perfect time to escape the hustle-and-bustle of urban living and retreat to suburban settings throughout the New York metropolitan area.
Now more than ever, young families are finding tremendous opportunities to live in new home communities that offer great seasonal deals and feature homes with dramatic living spaces, locations with award-winning school systems and commuter-friendly access and the peace and tranquility of scenic natural beauty. Such is the case at Legacy of Mountain Lakes and The Rise at HighPointe, two signature residential developments from HornRock Properties.
Legacy at Mountain Lakes in Morris County, N.J. has become a popular destination for young buyers migrating to the suburbs for comfortable and luxurious homes, open space and good schools. The collection of just 39 three-bedroom townhomes is situated in one of New Jersey’s most prominent residential settings with a top-notch public school system that’s continually cited by renowned publications for its excellence.
“Legacy combines all the attributes that have traditionally drawn City residents to the suburbs, all in one community,” says Maurice Hornblass, a principal of HornRock Properties.
Two separate housing collections are offered at The Legacy, each with host of upscale design elements. The “Carriage Home Series” will feature townhomes ranging from 2,162 to 2,236 finished square-feet of luxury space and boasting 2 ½ baths and one- or two-car garages. Two layouts – the Midvale and Hillcrest – are highlighted in the “Carriage Homes” priced from $579,900.
Residences in the community’s “Signature Home Series” feature three bedrooms, 2 ½ baths and either 2,829 or 2,853 square feet of luxury living space, priced from $799,900.
“There are very few new construction townhomes in Morris County being offered with this level of luxury,” Maurice adds. “Legacy provides the unique scenario of living in an expansive, upscale home with modern amenities and features, yet still enjoying the advantages of a care-free lifestyle where many daily tasks such as landscaping and snow removal are performed. It’s an attractive situation for those moving from high-rise apartments or smaller condominium in urban areas.”
Legacy also offers a convenient location just off Route 287 with easy access to Routes 46 and 80, bringing the business and entertainment centers of New York City and northern New Jersey within quick reach.
Similar reasons are drawing homebuyers to The Rise at HighPointe, a collection of 31 single-family homes rising on a hilltop site in the Woodbury Junction community in Orange County, N.Y.’s Central Valley, NY.
“A high percentage of homeowners at HighPointe are young families who want the ‘American Dream’ lifestyle, but are priced out of New York City’s immediate suburbs,” says David Hornblass, another HornRock principal. “They are turning to Orange County, N.Y. and The Rise at HighPointe where they can find spacious single-family homes surrounded by majestic beauty and located in an established, inviting neighborhood setting. With pricing significantly less than Bergen, Westchester or Rockland Counties, this community provides an opportunity to realize the dream of homeownership well within their budget.”
Priced from $439,000, homes at The Rise include 2,040 to over 3,400 square feet of living space and an open layout on the first floor, with one model offering a first-floor master-bedroom suite, all on property lots of ¾ of an acre and larger. Many high-end features that are upgrades in other communities are standard in the homes at The Rise. Upgrades for features such as custom faucets, lighting, bonus rooms, flooring and three-car garages are also available. Homes are available in five different designs and with three distinct architectural styles: Traditional, Farmhouse (with great front porches) and the extremely popular Arts & Crafts.
The community is just minutes from The New York Thruway/Route 87, Route 17 and several public transportation options, and also just a short walk away from the town’s award-winning schools. The town of Woodbury’s “Woodbury Rec” program provides swimming, boating, day camps, fishing, sports fields, roller hockey and other programs for children of all ages. Residents of The Rise will also enjoy such future resort-inspired amenities as a swimming pool and clubhouse.
