ENGLEWOOD, NJ – Homeowners at The M at Englewood South have much to feel lucky about this St. Patrick’s Day, topped by owning an upscale condominium in a vibrant environment that conveys the charm and ease of an urban center.
Situated just minutes from the everyday services and exciting shopping, entertainment and dining of downtown Englewood, the 125-home neighborhood has quickly become one of Bergen County’s most popular residential destinations for young couples and single-professionals seeking affordability and access to many lifestyle components. John Kelly, a former renter who purchased at The M at Englewood South, exemplifies how the community appeals to the first-time buyer looking for a high level of convenience.
“The M provides a great location,” he says. “We’re in close proximity to downtown Englewood, Paramus, the shopping and services of Bergen County, New York City, as well as all major highways.”
Two well-known restaurants — Panera Bread and Anthony’s Coal Fire Pizza – lie near the community’s entrance on Route 4. Two miles away, downtown Englewood offers more than 300 stores and restaurants. Its bustling streets blend historic storefronts with modern buildings and retail outlets, including Shop Rite, Capital One Bank, Chipotle, Victoria’s Secret, Group USA, The Children’s Place, and eateries such as Cassies, La Cumbia and 50’s era Baumgart’s cafe. It’s also home to the Bergen Performing Arts Center, where an extensive list of popular musicians and performers take the stage every year.
For Cecilia Liu, a homeowner who moved to The M at Englewood South from nearby Ft. Lee, the easy access to the wealth of shops and cultural and entertainment opportunities she was accustomed to was a big draw.
“I’m not only close to New York City, but I’m also right by the many shops on Routes 4 and 17,” she said. “Additionally, I can easily access many of the restaurants and cultural venues I’ve grown to love, including dining in downtown Englewood or shows at the nearby Bergen PAC.”
Many of the homebuyers at The M at Englewood South are young professionals who work in Manhattan, making its location less than 4 miles to the George Washington Bridge a perfect fit. The M provides a shuttle service to the nearby NJ Transit bus stop with service into New York City.
“I love the fact there’s such easy access to New York City, especially considering I still commute to Midtown daily,” commented Bryan Forbes, who escaped New York City’s skyrocketing apartment pricing and purchased at The M.
The community itself provides all the attributes that today’s young homebuyer desires. With on-site social and recreational amenities and a maintenance-free environment, there’s plenty of time for residents to enjoy leisure activities.
For Lauren DeMarco, who moved up at The M from a West New York apartment, the amenities are a great complement to the brand new condominiums at the community. “I love the parking, elevator and pool,” she says. “The fact that cable and Internet are included in my considerably low maintenance fee is a significant factor. It’s perfect for my lifestyle.”
Ms. DeMarco is not the only homeowner who has fallen in love with the resort-inspired pool and sundeck at The M at Englewood South. Opening Memorial Day weekend, the outdoor amenity has unquestionably cemented its status as a social center with scores of residents gathering to unwind and socialize during summer months. There’s also a resident’s clubroom with catering kitchen for large parties and entertaining. What’s more, residents receive a one year membership at The Gym, a 40,000 SF state-of-the-art fitness center located at 20 Nordhoff Place.
While lifestyle and location are major reasons for purchasing at The M at Englewood South, the driving force behind the sales success is its luxury homes and outstanding pricing. Two-bedroom condominiums at The M at Englewood South start from the mid-$400,000s. Adding to the community’s affordability are special limited-time incentives that provide $20,000 off the price of a two-bedroom residence. There’s also an innovative 97% financing program that creates a low initial down payment.
Residences range in size from 755 to 1,499 square feet and feature an open living space, sumptuous bedrooms, state-of-the-art kitchens with maple cabinetry, under-counter lighting and granite countertops, large laundry areas with side-by-side General Electric washers and dryers, and large walk-in closets. There is also oak hardwood flooring throughout the living area and ceramic tile flooring in the entry hall and kitchen. A parking space in The M’s enclosed garage is included in the purchase price.
“These are open and functional floorplans that provide plenty of living space and appeal to a wide range of buyers, whether it’s a young couple purchasing their first home or an empty-nester looking to scale down from a single-family residence,” says Elli Kim, Sales Representative for The Marketing Directors, exclusive marketing and sales agent at The M at Englewood South.
