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

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.

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.

MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. – The impressive buyer interest in Legacy of Mountain Lakes is expected to see a significant jump when two professionally-decorated model homes make their highly-anticipated debut in early 2014 at the intimate collection of just 39 three- and four-bedroom townhomes

The spectacular new models will officially open with several residences at Legacy of Mountain Lakes already reserved and the initial townhomes at the upscale new neighborhood expected to be delivered for occupancy in January, according to HornRock Properties, which is developing the community in this sought-after Morris County Borough.
“We’ve been able to record a number of sales even without the benefit of model homes as buyers have responded to the sumptuous designs and sophisticated lifestyle that separate Legacy from the competition,” says Maurice Hornblass, a HornRock Properties principal.
“We expect this number to rise dramatically once prospects can tour these models and see for themselves just how elegant and graceful these interiors will be. And with just a select number of homes available in our soon-to-be-completed buildings, the model opening is the perfect time for interested buyers to act before the existing inventory is spoken for.”

Legacy of Mountain Lakes features two distinctive housing sections. Debuting in January will be three-bedroom Fernwood and Briarcliff model townhomes which will highlight the expansive and ultra-luxurious interiors offered in the “Signature Home Series” collection.

Buyers who purchase optional upgrade packages can expand their living space to more than 4,700 square feet in the residences. Optional finished basements, elevators and loft spaces which can be used as an additional bedroom with full bath are available. Homes in the “Signature Home Series” are priced from the upper-$700,000s.

The “Signature Home Series” models are expected to be joined in early spring by two new models in Legacy’s “Carriage Home Series” collection. The “Carriage Home Series” features 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 and are priced from the high $500,000s.
Legacy of Mountain Lakes has proven to have broad appeal to wide range of homebuyers. Empty-nesters who want the opportunity to reside in an upscale care-free environment, yet still remain close to friends and family in northern New Jersey appreciate the prestigious Mountain Lakes location. Professional couples have been attracted to the spacious, well-appointed interior layouts which provide plenty of room for sophisticated living, entertaining family and friends and so much more.

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. While the community unquestionably offers a prestigious address, a close proximity to major transportation including Routes 46, 287 and 80 also brings residents minutes from world class shopping, entertainment and major business centers.

“The shops, services, museums and theatres of historic Morristown are just 15 minutes away and there are a number of golf courses, country clubs and other entertainment pursuits for Mountain Lakes residents to enjoy,” indicates David Hornblass, another HornRock principal. “What‘s more, New Jersey Transit trains at the Mountain Lakes station whisk commuters into Newark Penn Station, Hoboken and New York City.”

The Legacy Of Mountain Lakes Prepares For Exciting Fall

A02423_HornRock Dusk Townhomes_Building 4_130514MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. – Activity abounds at The Legacy of Mountain Lakes which is gearing up for an exciting fall filled with development and sales milestones.

Framing has commenced for the initial townhome building at the intimate collection of 39 ultra-luxurious residences, according to HornRock Properties which is developing Legacy of Mountain Lakes.  The bustling construction activity coincides with the recent launch of the VIP Preview Sales which provides interested prospects their first opportunity to purchase at special introductory pricing at the community.

“The next few months are shaping up to be a very important period at Legacy,” says David Hornblass, a principal in the development group.  “The swift pace of development on these townhomes will provide visitors a glimpse at how these townhomes will look when finished.  What’s more, we’re preparing to begin offering ‘hard hat’ tours of the homes shortly which will offer an up close look at the elegance, grace and comfort of the interior layouts.”

“In fact, we’ve already experienced a significant rise in interest since we started the foundations of these homes and we fully expect activity to grow even stronger as they get closer to completion.”

Legacy of Mountain Lakes is designed to reflect market conditions and satisfy the desires of area homebuyers.  The new community will feature two distinctive housing collections — the “Carriage Home Series” featuring three-story townhomes ranging from 2,162 to 2,236 finished square-feet of luxury space and the “Signature Home Series” offering two-story townhomes ranging from 2,829-2,853 square feet.

The development timeline at Legacy of Mountain Lakes will include the official opening of professionally-decorated Signature Series model homes at the community in late October.

Townhomes at The Legacy of Mountain Lakes are initially priced from the high-$500,000s for the “Carriage Home Series” and upper-$700,000s for the “Signature Home Series.” All homes will include a long list of designer appointments and upscale features.

The two separate housing collections offered at The Legacy both boast tremendous interior spaces and a host of upscale design elements.  The “Carriage Home Series” will feature three-bedroom residences with boast 2 full baths and 2 half baths and one- or two-car garages.

The three-bedroom, 2 ½ bath “Signature Home Series” homes will boast unfinished walk-out basements and two-car garages.  Buyers who purchase optional upgrade packages can expand their living space to more than 4,200 square feet in the residences. Optional finished basements, elevators and loft spaces which can be used as an additional bedroom with full bath are available. Each of these residences will back to wooded areas for additional privacy.

“We expect this community and these homes to have broad appeal to homebuyers,” adds Maurice Hornblass, also a principal of HornRock Properties.  “For example, empty-nesters who want the opportunity to reside in an upscale care-free environment, yet still remain close to friends and family in northern New Jersey will certainly appreciate the prestigious Mountain Lakes location.

“Professional couples will be attracted to the spacious, well-appointed interior layouts which provide plenty of room for sophisticated living, entertaining family and friends and so much more.”

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. While the community unquestionably offers a prestigious address, a close proximity to major transportation including Routes 46, 287 and 80 also brings residents minutes from world class shopping, entertainment and major business centers.

“The shops, services, museums and theatres of historic Morristown are just 15 minutes away and there are a number of golf courses, country clubs and other entertainment pursuits for Mountain Lakes residents to enjoy,” David says.  “What‘s more, New Jersey Transit trains at the Mountain Lakes station whisk commuters into Newark Penn Station, Hoboken and New York City.”

Home to countless parks and nine lakes, MountainLakes provides a variety of recreational activities right in the heart of one of northern New Jersey’s most picturesque settings.  The Borough boasts one of the state’s top public schools systems, with MountainLakesHigh School recently ranked number 7 on New Jersey Monthly’s 2012 annual ranking of Top Public High Schools in New Jersey.
