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.

Mountain Lakes residents – Do you have your beach tags for summer?

beach tags

Summer is finally here! Its time to enjoy the beach and have some good, safe fun!
Beaches are restricted for use by residents and immediate family members who reside with them. As you may know, to enter the beach, a beach tag available from Borough Hall is required. Proof of residency is necessary for ALL adults over 21 wishing to purchase tags.
Children under two years of age (as of June 1, 2013) do not need a tag. Seniors (aged 62 or over) must obtain tags but there is no fee. One Nanny tag is available per household and must be purchased separately.

This summer especially, we all are excited to be spending time with friends and family members in NJ on our beautiful beaches with so much to offer in terms of fine dining restaurants, activities for families, summer camps,  etc. We are so lucky to have these amazing beaches so close to us at Legacy of Mountain Lakes – just another reason our residents enjoy living here so much.

Summer living at Legacy is underway and we couldn’t be happier!

Don’t forget your sunscreen!
