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.

MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. – Mayor Dan Happer and fellow officials from the Borough of Mountain Lakes joined developer HornRock Properties Wednesday, Feb. 26th, 2014, to celebrate the Grand Opening of Mountain Lakes’ newest luxury residential community: Legacy of Mountain Lakes.

The mayor cut the ribbon on the new property, officially opening it to home buyers and guests who wish to tour the community’s brand new furnished model home. The new furnished model provides an up close look at the spacious interior designs, luxurious features, quality finishes and unsurpassed lifestyle homeowners at Legacy of Mountain Lakes will enjoy.

“This property has had sort of a storied past which actually began before I was on the council, when I first moved in here about 16 years ago, so it is good to see you guys come in. I think the plans you have put forth are really great,” Mayor Happer said. “I agree with you that the design blends in with the community and I would say you made the right decision by coming to Mountain Lakes. You describe what I hear most people say when they move in to town, which is ‘I came here, I looked around, I saw it had a great school system and I experienced a true sense of community.’ So I think for all of the right reasons, you made a great choice to come here and we wish you the best of luck as you move forward.”

Although the ribbon cutting marked the official grand opening of the community, a number of the homes have already been sold at pre-construction prices. The opening of the model is expected to generate even more sales traffic, making Legacy of Mountain Lakes one of the hottest buying opportunities of the spring. The community of 39 three- and four-bedroom townhomes boasts ultra-luxurious finishes, spacious layouts and an ideal location in one of suburban Morris County’s most highly-desirable towns.

“The Morris County location is a big draw, with major employment centers in Morristown and Parsippany less than 10 miles away and easy access to New York City via Route 80 and the Mountain Lakes train station,” said David Hornblass, a principal of HornRock properties. “Residents can enjoy access to nearby shops, services, museums, restaurants and theatres, or just spend the day on the golf course or at a lake club. It’s a tremendous lifestyle and Legacy of Mountain Lakes residents will be able to enjoy all of it.”

The model unveiled on Wednesday showcases the Briarcliff floor plan, a 4,761 square-foot layout that exudes luxury, grace and charm, merchandised by prominent interior design firm Gacek Design. It boasts an expansive first floor great room with fireplace, formal dining room, designer kitchen with raised panel cabinetry and lustrous granite countertops and a lavish master bedroom suite with granite-clad master bath with Kohler™ fixtures.

The three-bedroom Briarcliff is just the first of two furnished model homes being unveiled at Legacy that showcase the two-story designs in the community’s “Signature Home Series.” A Fernwood model is expected to open to the public in April.

“Buyers have been clamoring for the opportunity to tour this model home since word of its debut began spreading earlier this year,” said Maurice Hornblass, another principal at HornRock Properties. “We fully expect a spirited response to the grand opening because buyers know that after the model opens, some of the most desirable home site locations in the community are going to move very fast.”

“The Briarcliff illustrates exactly how Legacy of Mountain Lakes is redefining sophisticated suburban living with sprawling townhome floor plans, high-end appointments and architecturally-distinct stone and stucco exteriors that blend perfectly into the heavily wooded surroundings.”

Priced from $799,900, homes in the “Signature Home Series” feature three-bathrooms, unfinished walk-out basements, two-car garages and up to 2,853 square-feet of luxury living space.

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.”
