Utilize the scenic Tourne County Park to stay in shape this summer

tourne-county-parkWhy go to the gym on a beautiful summer day when you could exercise outside? The Legacy of Mountain Lakes is located just 5 minutes away from Tourne County Park. The park features athletic fields, bike trails, lakes, hiking trails and much more where one could enjoy various outdoor activities with a panoramic view to match . Here’s an easy walking workout that will help you get back in shape with a new outdoor exercise regimen while taking advantage of the natural Mountain Lakes terrain.


You can burn 200 calories in 30 minutes.

Navigating over roots and rocks and along winding or hilly paths can help you melt more fat and improve your agility, balance and coordination.

  • First 5 minutes: Walk along a flat trail at a pace that would make it easy for you to carry on a conversation.
  • Next 7 minutes: Stay on even terrain and pick up your pace so you’re breathing more deeply. (You should be able to talk only in short sentences.) Move at a faster clip for the last 2 minutes of this segment. Your breathing should become more labored, and you should be able to say just a few words at a time.
  • Next 10 minutes: Set out on a hilly trail or rugged path. Slow down to navigate uneven terrain. (If all the trails in your vicinity are flat, alternate between brisk and faster paces for 1 minute each.)
  • Next 5 minutes: Return to even terrain and walk at the same pace you used during the 7-minute segment (you should be able to talk only in short sentences).
  • Last 3 minutes: Continue walking on even terrain at a comfortable pace until your breathing is normal and you can carry on a conversation again.

Trail hiking 101:
Avoid getting blisters and other injuries that could interfere with your workouts.

  • Watch where you walk. Keep an eye on the ground, scanning for loose stones, holes, exposed roots and debris. To avoid slipping and falling, try to step on dull-colored dirt rather than slick, sticky mud.
  • Pamper your feet. To keep feet dry and blister-free, wear socks made of a fabric that draws sweat away from the skin (acrylic, for example, or Coolmax). Besides being uncomfortable, damp socks cause friction, which increases the likelihood of blisters.
  • Get the best boots. Wear lightweight hiking boots or trail shoes for ankle support and more grip when you’re walking on uneven terrain.

MOUNTAIN LAKES is one of northern New Jersey’s most affluent towns. Because of its elite status, HornRock Properties has chosen it to debut their newest luxury residences. The Legacy of Mountain Lakes is a community of townhomes nestled in the quaint woods of Morris County. These lavish units cater to homebuyers who want a small-town charm while being close to busy city life.

New York City is easily accessible via New Jersey Transit trains and buses, as well as Routes 46, 80 and 280. Mountain Lakes’ school system is top rated in New Jersey. Students’ Advanced Placement participation, SAT scores and graduation rates are all very high. Its proximity to parks, lakes and outdoor facilities makes it a wonderful place to live and raise a family.

“The Legacy of Mountain Lakes is a housing opportunity that doesn’t come around very often in the exclusive Morris County market,” says David Hornblass of HornRock Properties. “It’s a rare chance to purchase an upscale, brand-new townhome that includes an array of modern and contemporary finishes not commonly found in the area’s existing housing inventory.”

The Carriage Series includes the Midvale and the Hillcrest, and the Signature Series consists of the Fernwood and the Briarcliff. Both series boast a multitude of amenities such as hardwood floors and top-of-the-line appliances and feature beautiful stone and stucco exteriors.

The Midvale and Hillcrest feature three full bedrooms, two full and two half bathrooms, one- or two-car garages, designer kitchens, dining and family rooms, patios and master suites.

The Fernwood and the Briarcliff have three full bedrooms, two full and one half bathrooms, two-car garages, designer kitchens, Great Rooms with fireplaces, libraries, walk-out basements, granite countertops and spacious master suites and master baths with Kohler fixtures.

The Legacy offers upscale gourmet cooking amenities, including premium Wolf ranges and ovens. In addition, the homes are sleekly styled and furnished with top-quality finishes. The open-floor plan allows easy entertainment of guests, and the location makes it ideal for enjoying the great outdoors.

“This sought-after neighborhood fulfills all the luxury lifestyle needs of today’s sophisticated homebuyer, with a wide selection of well-designed and exquisitely appointed floor plans and open and airy interior spaces. Of course, homebuyers receive all this in an affluent borough that offers all the attributes of the perfect suburban lifestyle,” says Hornblass.

Demand spurs new phase at Legacy of Mountain Lakes

HornRock Properties has released a new housing phase of premium home sites at the Legacy of Mountain Lakes to accommodate the growing number of homebuyers drawn to its townhome designs.

Legacy_of_MLMOUNTAIN LAKES – HornRock Properties has released a new housing phase of premium home sites at the Legacy of Mountain Lakes to accommodate the growing number of homebuyers drawn to its townhome designs, desirable Morris County location and award-winning school district.

Growing interest from a wide variety of buyers, including young families and couples, has led to several new sales at the luxurious collection of just 39 residences during the busy spring selling season, according to Maurice Hornblass, a principal of HornRock Properties. To satisfy demand, the developer decided to release the two townhome buildings with premium locations much earlier than expected.

The new phase includes six new homes from the Legacy of Mountain Lakes “Carriage Series” which were designed to meet the needs of today’s young, sophisticated buyer. Often drawing first-time buyers from more urban locales such as Hoboken, Jersey City and even Manhattan, the three-story Carriage Series townhomes provide a more affordable opportunity for buyers looking to enjoy the low-maintenance lifestyle of a new construction home and all of the benefits a Mountain Lakes address has to offer.

“Homebuyers realize we’re nearing the end of our sales program and that this is their best opportunity to select the home location of their choice at Morris County’s premier new townhome community,” Hornblass said. “It has translated into a number of sales in the past few weeks alone and heavy interest in all of our available townhomes.

“These new homes offer an enhanced suburban setting in one of Northern New Jersey’s most attractive locations and well-appointed, luxurious interiors with considerable space and room to grow. As buyers rush to avoid missing out on this one-of-a-kind housing opportunity, we don’t expect our remaining homes to be available very long,” Hornblass added.

Homes in Legacy’s Carriage Series 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. These townhomes range from 2,162 to 2,236 of finished square-feet and are priced from $599,900. The Carriage Series homes feature expansive living spaces, exquisite finishes and a modern, “open concept” layout.

The new phase will also accommodate all home designs in Legacy’s “Signature Series” collection, which will include premium locations surrounded by wooded terrain and beautifully landscaped grounds.

Homes in the Legacy’s Signature Series feature three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths baths and either 2,829 or 2,853 square feet of luxury living space, priced from $799,900.

Both the Carriage Series and Signature Series collections are being offered with a limited-time incentive program that includes a top-of-the-line Wolf range/oven added to special gourmet kitchens at no extra cost.

Legacy of Mountain Lakes has proven to have broad appeal to a wide range of home buyers. Buyers to date have cited the community’s visually stunning location, excellent quality-of-life and top-notch public school system as motivating factors.

“Many buyers who have their heart set on Mountain Lakes are pleasantly surprised to learn about the multiple townhome designs we offer and just how much quality, space and comfort they are receiving for their home buying dollar,” said David 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. The community is buzzing with activity every day as our residents enjoy everything this tremendous location offers,” he added.

Situated at the intersection of Morris Avenue and Fanny Road, Legacy of Mountain Lakes offers a superb Morris County location characterized by winding country roads, bucolic lakes and heavily wooded terrain. With its attractive setting and close proximity to convenient transportation, the community unquestionably offers a prestigious address. The community features easy access to Route 46 and interstates 287 and 80, putting residents just minutes from world class shopping, entertainment and major business centers. Morristown — with top-rated restaurants, shopping and nightlife — is just a 10-minute drive away.

Mountain Lakes is home to countless parks and nine lakes, making it ideal for outdoor recreation, all 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. 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 within walking distance.

HornRock Properties’ New Home Communities Offer New Suburban Lifestyle in the New Year

Great Room & Kitchen DSC_0061City sidewalks may be dressed in Holiday style, but homebuyers in large numbers are deciding it’s the perfect time to escape the hustle-and-bustle of urban living and retreat to suburban settings throughout the New York metropolitan area.

Now more than ever, young families are finding tremendous opportunities to live in new home communities that offer great seasonal deals and feature homes with dramatic living spaces, locations with award-winning school systems and commuter-friendly access and the peace and tranquility of scenic natural beauty. Such is the case at Legacy of Mountain Lakes and The Rise at HighPointe, two signature residential developments from HornRock Properties.

Legacy at Mountain Lakes in Morris County, N.J. has become a popular destination for young buyers migrating to the suburbs for comfortable and luxurious homes, open space and good schools. The collection of just 39 three-bedroom townhomes is situated in one of New Jersey’s most prominent residential settings with a top-notch public school system that’s continually cited by renowned publications for its excellence.

“Legacy combines all the attributes that have traditionally drawn City residents to the suburbs, all in one community,” says Maurice Hornblass, a principal of HornRock Properties.

Two separate housing collections are offered at The Legacy, each with host of upscale design elements. The “Carriage Home Series” will feature townhomes ranging from 2,162 to 2,236 finished square-feet of luxury space and boasting 2 ½ baths and one- or two-car garages. Two layouts – the Midvale and Hillcrest – are highlighted in the “Carriage Homes” priced from $579,900.

Residences in the community’s “Signature Home Series” feature three bedrooms, 2 ½ baths and either 2,829 or 2,853 square feet of luxury living space, priced from $799,900.

“There are very few new construction townhomes in Morris County being offered with this level of luxury,” Maurice adds. “Legacy provides the unique scenario of living in an expansive, upscale home with modern amenities and features, yet still enjoying the advantages of a care-free lifestyle where many daily tasks such as landscaping and snow removal are performed. It’s an attractive situation for those moving from high-rise apartments or smaller condominium in urban areas.”

Legacy also offers a convenient location just off Route 287 with easy access to Routes 46 and 80, bringing the business and entertainment centers of New York City and northern New Jersey within quick reach.

Similar reasons are drawing homebuyers to The Rise at HighPointe, a collection of 31 single-family homes rising on a hilltop site in the Woodbury Junction community in Orange County, N.Y.’s Central Valley, NY.

“A high percentage of homeowners at HighPointe are young families who want the ‘American Dream’ lifestyle, but are priced out of New York City’s immediate suburbs,” says David Hornblass, another HornRock principal. “They are turning to Orange County, N.Y. and The Rise at HighPointe where they can find spacious single-family homes surrounded by majestic beauty and located in an established, inviting neighborhood setting. With pricing significantly less than Bergen, Westchester or Rockland Counties, this community provides an opportunity to realize the dream of homeownership well within their budget.”

Priced from $439,000, homes at The Rise include 2,040 to over 3,400 square feet of living space and an open layout on the first floor, with one model offering a first-floor master-bedroom suite, all on property lots of ¾ of an acre and larger. Many high-end features that are upgrades in other communities are standard in the homes at The Rise. Upgrades for features such as custom faucets, lighting, bonus rooms, flooring and three-car garages are also available. Homes are available in five different designs and with three distinct architectural styles: Traditional, Farmhouse (with great front porches) and the extremely popular Arts & Crafts.

The community is just minutes from The New York Thruway/Route 87, Route 17 and several public transportation options, and also just a short walk away from the town’s award-winning schools. The town of Woodbury’s “Woodbury Rec” program provides swimming, boating, day camps, fishing, sports fields, roller hockey and other programs for children of all ages. Residents of The Rise will also enjoy such future resort-inspired amenities as a swimming pool and clubhouse.
