July 12, 2016 5:49 pm

Carriage ExteriorsMOUNTAIN 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. Read more

Grand Opening of New Hillcrest Model To Be Held This Weekend at Legacy of Mountain Lakes

March 2, 2016 7:31 pm

Carriage ExteriorsMOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. –  HornRock Properties will host the Grand Opening of a new, professionally-decorated Hillcrest model home this weekend (Saturday and Sunday, March 5th and 6th) at Legacy of Mountain Lakes, the upscale collection of townhomes in this prestigious Morris County borough.  The official opening celebration — which will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. — will not only highlight the luxury interior and upscale finishes offered in the popular three-bedroom Hillcrest design, but also the enviable lifestyle available in one of northwestern New Jersey’s most sought-after residential suburbs.

Highlighted as part of the Carriage Series at Legacy of Mountain Lakes, the Hillcrest is one of the few remaining opportunities to purchase at the community.  The Carriage Series homes are priced from $599,900.

Also debuting this weekend will be limited-time homebuyer incentives which create great value at Legacy of Mountain Lakes.  Available until March 31st, the special program provides purchasers up to $25,000 in savings for the Carriage Series homes and up to $35,000 in savings for the Signatures Series homes.

Only nine townhomes remain available at Legacy of Mountain Lakes, which is on the verge of a complete sell-out thanks to its blend of spacious and luxury housing designs, complete lifestyle and desirable location.  Justin and Anna Zhang are just one of the many families who have discovered all these attributes that make Legacy of Mountain Lakes a special community.

The couple were living in a two-bedroom apartment in Randolph last year when they decided it was time to purchase a new residence. They liked living in Morris County, so they began searching in nearby communities. About ten miles away, they fell in love with Mountain Lakes, a classic American lake town with upscale suburban tranquility.

While the Zhangs immediately fell in love with the town, they found it wasn’t compatible with their preference for new construction residences. Most of the housing supply in Mountain Lakes is elegant and charming, but several decades old. Fortunately, the Zhangs discovered Legacy of Mountain Lakes. They bought a spacious Hillcrest townhouse, moved to the community in December and they are loving every minute of it.

“This was the newest construction available in Mountain Lakes, and it is an inviting boutique community with great architectural design,” Mr. Zhang said. “We really liked it. I am especially fond of the low-maintenance lifestyle. It saves a lot of time and energy not to have to shovel snow, rake leaves or cut the grass.”  The Hillcrest” floorplan is one of four designs available at Legacy of Mountain Lakes, and one of two in the community’s Carriage Series. The home includes two full baths, two half-baths and a two-car garage. It was designed to take advantage of every square inch of its 2,162 square feet of living space.

The Hillcrest home opens on the recreation level, where a spacious recreation room is flanked by the home’s porch and an inviting patio. The Zhangs particularly enjoy the intelligently-designed living level, which features a large, well-appointed great room and dining area that is coupled with a country kitchen with a large center island, all arranged in a manner that maximizes living space and offers all of the advantages of an open floor plan.

“We were looking for a home with lots of storage and an open-concept living room,” Mr. Zhang said. “The Hillcrest floorplan was perfect for us.”

The Zhangs’ home also includes an impressive bedroom level with a master suite that is complete with a walk-in closet and master bath with granite countertops, dual sinks and Kohler fixtures. Two other well-appointed bedrooms are also located on the bedroom level.

The Zhangs have enjoyed the lifestyle their new home offers them. Mr. Zhang works for a pharmaceutical company in the area and has an easy driving commute to work. Mrs. Zhang takes the train to her office in Manhattan. They like to get outdoors too, and the pleasant vistas and nine scenic lakes in Mountain Lakes gives them plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation practically in their backyard.

“I like to go for runs on Boulevard, where there is a running and biking path alongside the road, and I work out at the YMCA on Fanny Road, which is within walking distance,” Mr. Zhang said. “Everything I want to do is close by, so it is an excellent location.”

Legacy of Mountain Lakes offers two distinct housing collections. In addition to the Hillcrest, the Carriage Series collection includes the “Midvale” design, with three bedrooms, two full baths, two half baths and a private garage. Homes in the Carriage Series range from 2,162 to 2,236 square-feet of finished living space and are priced from $599,900. Both Carriage Series homes feature expansive living spaces, exquisite finishes and a modern, “open concept” layout.

Legacy also offers its “Signature Series”, which includes an elegant “Briarcliff” model townhome which is now available for sale. Both the Briarcliff and the “Fernwood” layout offer buyers a three-bedroom, 2 ½-bath floorplan, all of which back up to premium wooded locations. The homes range in size from 2,829 to 2,853 square feet of luxury living space, but can be upgraded to 4,700+ square feet of living space with a finished lower level and 4th level. They also include an attached two-car garage. Prices for the remaining Signature Series homes start from $839,900.

Mountain Lakes is extremely well-connected with Routes 287, 80, 46, and 202 intersecting just outside of the town’s border, and the Mountain Lakes NJTRANSIT station offers commuters service on the Montclair-Boonton line.

Home buyers at Legacy become part of a community with an award-winning school system, an attractive collection of streets, public parks and homes, and unique attractions, such as a private lake club. Several popular shops and restaurants are nearby. The quaint, sophisticated colonial town center of Morristown offers additional shopping, dining and nightlife options just a 10-minute drive away. The neighboring town of Boonton features a charming Main Street with shops, restaurants, a historic vaudeville theatre, and other attractions. Golf courses are nearby, and the Lakeland Hills YMCA right down the street from Legacy of Mountain Lakes offers a pool, gymnasium, child care, summer camps, fitness facilities and more, all within walking distance.
