Only Three Homes Remain Available at Legacy of Mountain Lakes in Morris County

Legacy StreetscapeMOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. – Time is running out for buyers who want to take advantage of one of the only new construction products available in the desirable Morris County borough of Mountain Lakes. Legacy of Mountain Lakes, the upscale townhome community, is down to its final three homes remaining, developer HornRock Properties announced today.

In a local market where new construction homes are difficult to come by, HornRock Properties is preparing to close out an extremely successful sales and marketing program that has attracted buyers who want to live in Mountain Lakes, but who are also looking for modern features such as designer interiors and upscale finishes. The property is 95 percent sold and filled with happy residents who enjoy close proximity to lake beach clubs, golf courses, mountain trails, excellent public schools, and everything else that makes Mountain Lakes special.

“Mountain Lakes’ award-winning schools, scenic locale and commuter-friendly location have made the borough one of northern New Jersey’s long sought-after residential destinations,” says Maurice Hornblass, a HornRock Properties principal. “Introducing a luxury townhome community to the neighborhood has proven to be a hit, and with three homes now remaining, there is still an opportunity for buyers here, but we don’t expect that availability to last much longer.”

The three homes remaining at Legacy of Mountain Lakes represent three distinct floorplans. The “Midvale” is a three-bedroom, 2 ½-bath home design that includes a variety of upscale appointments, including an upgraded kitchen. It provides approximately 2,236 square feet of living space and lives even larger, with a spacious foyer that opens onto a magnificent Great Room and patio, an open-concept second floor with country kitchen, living and dining rooms, and third floor with a luxurious master suite. The home is priced at $635,900.

The “Fernwood” home that remains available is ultra-spacious, featuring approximately 4,700 square feet of living space. It includes numerous custom upgrades, such as gourmet finishes in the kitchen, 9’ ceilings with walkout to wooded area, and a finished lower level entertaining space. The Three-bed, 3 ½-bath layout revolves around a large, open-concept Great Room with fireplace and a chef-inspired kitchen with 6’ island. In addition to a spacious formal dining room and deck, the home’s extravagant master suite offers some of the most luxurious touches, including a massive walk-in closet and a spa-style master bath with granite countertops and Kohler™ fixtures. It is priced at $875,900.

The end-unit “Briarcliff” home remaining is one of the model homes that inspired so many home buyers to choose the community. It is a four-bed, 4 ½-bath design that boasts approximately 4,761 square feet of living space. Since it was designed to function as a model home, it includes a number of upscale appointments and amenities not found in all homes, including built-in surround sound speakers throughout the house and a spectacular finished lower level with a built-in bar, wine cellar, fireplace, walk out to wooded area, and recreation area ideal for entertaining.

Merchandised by prominent interior design firm Gacek Design, the Briarcliff model home also includes an expansive first floor great room with fireplace, formal dining room, designer kitchen with raised panel cabinetry and granite countertops, and a lavish master bedroom suite with a huge walk-in closet. It is priced at $1.25 million.

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.

The community 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 of which Legacy residents regularly take advantage of and all within walking distance.

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