Young families drawn to townhomes at Legacy of Mountain Lakes

November 21, 2014

The Legacy of Mountain Lakes is proving to have the answer for profes-sional couples and fami-lies seeking a desirable Morris County location, high level of luxury and access to one of New Jer-sey’s top rated school system.

Designed with the needs and desires of today’s young suburban home-buyer in mind and featur-ing expansive living spaces and fine finishes and appointments, the three-story townhomes in the community’s popular “Carriage Series” offer all the benefits of elegant living in one of northern New Jersey’s most attractive settings.

“Young couples and growing families constitute the strongest buying groups in the ‘Carriage Series,” said David Hornblass, a principal of HornRock Properties, which is developing the intimate collection of just 39 townhomes. “Currently living in smaller townhomes or condominiums and luxury apartments, these purchasers find that the spacious layouts, Morris County ameni-ties and private setting are ideal for their lifestyle.

“Additionally, buyers with school-age children appreciate Mountain Lakes’ excellent schools, which have been rated among the best in the state for years, as well as the township’s diverse, safe quality of life. Commuters are also attracted to the com-munity’s central location near a myriad of highways and public transportation modes.”
Interest in the “Carriage Series” has been on the rise in the short time following the Grand Opening of a new professionally-decorated model home. The spacious and sophisticated Midvale model has received positive responses from visitors that have toured the three-bedroom home.

Merchandised by the interior design firm of Gacek Design, the furnished Midvale boasts two full baths, two half-baths and 2,236 square feet of living space. The first floor includes a garage, a great room and a patio. The second floor features an ex-pansive “open concept” living room and dining area, a country kitchen with raised-panel cabinetry and granite countertops, a center island and an outdoor deck. The upper level offers a masters suite with a walk-in closet and a master bath with granite countertops, dual sinks and Kohler fixtures.

The Midvale model is the third model home to open at Legacy of Mountain Lakes. Two models that opened earlier this year showcase the “Briarcliff” and “Fernwood” floor plans, which are part of the community’s “Signature Series,” which is now nearly sold out, with only six homes remaining.
Signature Series homes feature three bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, walk out basements, and either 2,819 or 2,853 square-feet of luxury living space. Upgrade packages are available to expand to even more living space. Optional finished basements, eleva-tors and loft spaces which can be used as an additional bedroom or flex space with full bath are available.

Carriage Series homes are offered in two designs, the “Midvale” and the “Hillcrest,” both of which offer three-bedroom layouts with two full baths, two half baths and one- or two-car garages. The three-story townhomes range from 2,162 to 2,236 finished square-feet of living space.

“Many buyers who have their heart set on Mountain Lakes are pleasantly surprised to learn about the multiple townhome de-signs we offer and just how much quality, space and comfort they are receiving for their home buying dollar,” said Maurice Hornblass, another HornRock principal. “The combination of a beautiful new construction townhome and this classic American small town setting is proving to be a tremendous draw.”

Legacy of Mountain Lakes has proven to have broad appeal to a wide range of homebuyers. Buyers to date have cited the community’s location, excellent quality-of-life and top-notch public school system as motivating factors.
Situated at the intersection of Morris Avenue and Fanny Road, Legacy of Mountain Lakes offers a desirable Morris County lo-cation characterized by winding country roads, bucolic lakes and heavily wooded terrain. With its attractive setting and close proximity to convenient transportation, the community offers a prestigious address. Routes 46, 287 and 80 are all nearby, put-ting residents just minutes from high-end shopping, entertainment and major business centers. The quaint but sophisticated colonial town center of Morristown with top-rated restaurants, shopping and nightlife is about a five-minute drive away.

Mountain Lakes is home to many parks and lakes, making it ideal for outdoor recreation, right in the heart of one of northern New Jersey’s most picturesque settings. Golf is abundant in the area, and lake clubs, such as the Mountain Lakes Club, offer a variety of outdoor activities and dining options.
