MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – A search that began among the million dollar homes in Brooklyn’s posh Dyker Heights would end in the heart of the historic Hudson Valley for a former New York City family looking to purchase their first residence
Arily Nieves and her husband, Miguel, were renting an apartment in the popular New York City Borough when they decided it was time to enjoy the advantages of home ownership and find perfect community to raise their growing family.
“We started our search in Brooklyn, but knew the neighborhood was incredibly expensive for ownership,” Mrs. Nieves says. “So we worked our way northwest towards Orange County, N.Y. where home prices were much more affordable.”
The Nieves looked at all home types, including townhomes and single-family residences, in areas such as Manhattan and Westchester and Rockland Counties.
“Throughout our home search, we kept seeing online advertisements for Maple Fields in Middletown,” Mrs. Nieves recalls. “Once we expanded our search to include homes in Orange County, it was one of the first communities we visited.”
Developed by Baker Residential, Maple Fields offers 196 three-bedroom townhomes priced from the upper $200,000s.
“Coming from Brooklyn’s high priced market, the pricing at Maple Fields was attractive to us,” Mrs. Nieves points out. “Of course, everyone would love a brand new home and Maple Fields offered newly-built townhomes that were perfect in terms of size and layout. The interiors are very functional and there is no wasted space. Better yet, the maintenance-free environment of a townhome community provided the care-free lifestyle we were seeking.”
Maple Fields’ location in close proximity to Route 84, the New York State Thruway and express busses into Manhattan was also ideal for the Nieves.
“My husband commutes daily to New York City,” Mrs. Nieves says. “The convenience of the nearby Coach Bus line is amazing. At home, the location of Maple Fields provides the best of both worlds. The neighborhood is tucked away so it’s very quiet and provides a distinctly suburban feel, yet we can easily reach shopping, local stores and much more in either direction.”
The Nieves have also been impressed with the Enlarged City School District of Middletown.
“We’ve found the schools system has changed dramatically in the past three years,” Mrs. Nieves says. “Our experience has been excellence.”
Maple Fields in now home to more than 70 homeowners, ranging from young families to empty-nesters. The intimate community has quickly become a lively and vibrant neighborhood with residents embracing an activity-rich environment.
Maple Fields’ transition into an established community has attracted the attention of prospective buyers. Strong sales has left just a select few three-bedroom townhomes available in the community’s current housing phase.
The remaining residences do, however, offer some of the community’s most favorable housing opportunities, including fast delivery dates. Townhomes in Phase 2 at Maple Fields are the final homes offered with delivery dates in 2015. This limited selection of residences also boasts desirable end unit locations, providing buyers a considerable amount of added privacy and serenity.
Townhomes in Maple Fields second housing phase provide additional upgrades in the purchase price, including stainless steel refrigerator and state-of-the-art washer and dryer. These new appointments join gourmet-inspired kitchens with breakfast nooks, formal dining rooms, attached two-car garages and finished lower level as high-end standard features in the homes. Homes range from 2,274 to 2,329 square-feet of living space.
Residents of Maple Fields receive a number of on-site recreational amenities right outside their door, including a tot lot and 1/2 basketball court that have recently debuted. Construction is also moving forward quickly on the community’s clubhouse facility which will include a sparkling outdoor pool when completed.
Homeowners also have the added benefit and convenience of a beautiful Orange County location. The scenic rolling hills, heavily wooded terrain and tremendous open space create the ideal suburban environment.
The Maple Fields sales office is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For additional information on the community, please call 914-461-9208 or visit www.maple-fields.com.
