HOPATCONG, NJ – A brand new, fully-furnished model home with sweeping lakefront views will debut Saturday, Oct. 14th at Mariner’s Pointe, the luxury townhome community on the shores of Lake Hopatcong.
The new model showcases the “Regatta” floorplan, one of the homes in the highly-anticipated Lakeside Homes collection at Mariner’s Pointe. Boasting majestic views over open water, and a location right next to the community’s boat dock and lakefront amenities, the Lakeside Homes collection offers a laid back, upscale lifestyle experience.
The Regatta home is the second fully furnished model to open at Mariner’s Pointe. A model home showcasing the “Charthouse” floorplan in the community’s Woodside Homes collection opened this summer.
The Regatta model represents the first opportunity for potential homebuyers to see what it would be like to live right on the water. That’s an especially important milestone for lake-loving house hunters who also prefer new construction, since Mariner’s Pointe is the first new construction development to open on Lake Hopatcong in decades.
“Beautiful Lake Hopatcong is the star attraction at our community, so naturally we are excited to open a model home that is situated right on the water,” said Cory Atkins, a principal of the award-winning Atkins Companies, which is developing Mariner’s Pointe and retained Coldwell Banker New Homes to market and sell the community. “We invite prospective home buyers to come visit us and see for themselves what it is like to live a resort-like lifestyle in such a magnificent location.”
The new Regatta model showcases a three-story townhome design with three bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, and a one-car garage. The home boasts 2,248 square feet of living space, upscale features and appointments, and an open floorplan. An entry foyer and staircase leads to the great room, gourmet kitchen with island, and dining area with access to a large outdoor balcony. Upstairs, the home’s three bedrooms are thoughtfully arranged. The grand owner’s suite is designed with style and comfort in mind, and also offers stunning views of the lake via its private, third-floor balcony. The grand owner’s suite also includes a tray ceiling, expansive walk-in closet and a spa-inspired bath with double under-mount sinks.
Four unique townhome designs are available at Mariner’s Pointe, featuring up to 2,248 square feet of living space. Homes in the Lakeside Homes collection are carriage-style townhomes, offering two or three bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, a one-car garage and private patios or balconies with breathtaking views of the lake, at prices starting from the low $500,000s. Homes in the Woodside Homes collection include three bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, two-car garages, patios and balconies. They are nestled against more than five acres of protected woodlands, just steps from the lake, at prices starting from the mid $400,000s.
Luxury features are standard at Mariner’s Pointe and included in the purchase price. All homes are well-appointed with Bargello wide plank flooring, lush carpeting, nine-foot ceiling heights, and gourmet kitchens with custom wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and quartz countertops. Lavish baths are adorned with porcelain tile flooring, warm wood vanities with stone or quartz countertops, and dual vanity sinks in the owner’s suite.
Mariner’s Pointe was designed to be a boater’s paradise, with 455 feet of private lakefront shoreline, five acres of preserved natural woodlands, and a private deeded boat slip that comes included with the purchase of each home. The permanent boat dock system is attached to steel pilings and features a bubbler system for winter protection and direct access to electrical hookups and hose bibs from each boat slip. The slips are generously sized and can accommodate a wide variety of watercraft. Residents will also enjoy a secure enclosed storage area for kayaks, canoes, paddle boards and other water sports equipment.
Amenities underway that will further enhance the lake experience include a covered lakefront pavilion and sundeck that offer spectacular views, and a multi-tiered lakefront gathering area with gas fire pit, gas grills, a paver sundeck and plenty of lounge seating for residents to relax, enjoy an outdoor meal and socialize with their neighbors.
