“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 Fernwood model complements the highly-praised “Briarcliff” furnished model the community opened in February, which boasts a spacious three-bedroom, 2.5-bath layout with a walk-out, lower level recreation space.

“One thing we have heard over and over again from our guests is that they were expecting our model homes to be very nice, and we still exceeded their expectations,” said David Hornblass, a principal of HornRock Properties, the developer of Legacy of Mountain Lakes. “We have received a tremendous amount of positive feedback on our Fernwood design since debuting that model.”

Priced from $799,900, the two floor plans in the “Signature Home Series” at Legacy of Mountain Lakes feature three-bathrooms, unfinished walk-out basements, two-car garages and either 2,819 or 2,853 square-feet of luxury living space.
