Upscale Morris County Living Delivers Sales at Legacy of Mountain Lakes

Legacy StreetscapeMOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. – The uniqueness and allure of Morris County living has translated into nearly 90% of the 47 upscale townhomes at Legacy of Mountain Lakes now sold.

Rising demand and a limited inventory of available residences has created a strong push from homebuyers to join the luxury suburban community and receive all that make living in this prestigious Morris County Borough so attractive.   The sales velocity at Legacy reflects the widespread appeal of Mountain Lakes, which has long drawn residents to its award-winning school district, pristine northwest New Jersey setting, wealth of outdoor recreation and prime location less than an hour to Manhattan and ten minutes to the shops, restaurants, nightlife and culture of historic Morristown.

“Legacy of Mountain Lakes provides a level of sophistication, comfort and contemporary living only a brand new home can provide,” says David Hornblass, a principal of the community’s developer HornRock Properties. “It’s the perfect residential address for young families and couples who want to receive the charm and exclusivity of Mountain Lakes’ small town environment in an upscale townhome with all the latest design trends and finishes.  Buyers have fully embraced this unique opportunity.”

Legacy of Mountain Lakes lies in a quiet, leafy corner of the borough, which is consistently ranked as one of New Jersey’s “Best Places to Live” by New Jersey Monthly magazine.  With tree-lined streets, rolling hills, stately homes and nine pristine lakes scattered within its borders, Mountain Lakes is a suburban oasis that has a history of drawing homebuyers from New York City’s immediate suburbs and Morris and Essex Counties.

Legacy of Mountain Lakes is situated at the intersection of Morris Avenue and Fanny Road, with a close proximity to convenient transportation, including Routes 46, 287 and 80.   Residents are just minutes from world class shopping, entertainment and major business centers. The neighboring town of Boonton features a charming Main Street with shops, restaurants, a historic vaudeville theatre, and other attractions, and nearby Morristown boasts a quaint, sophisticated colonial town center.

Golf is abundant in the area, and lake clubs, such as the Mountain Lakes Club, offer a variety of outdoor activities and dining options. The Lakeland Hills YMCA is right down the street from Legacy of Mountain Lakes, offering a pool, gymnasium, child care, summer camps, fitness facilities and more, all within walking distance.

“Our buyers are getting more than just a luxury townhome,” adds Maurice Hornblass, another HornRock Principal. “They are receiving a whole lifestyle package in a classic New Jersey town that is second to none.”
