Rising demand and a scarcity of available residences have created something of a rush on new homes at Livingston Town Center as buyers kicked off the new year with an impressive push to join the desirable mixed-use community.
The recent flurry of sales activity resulted in seven new contracts on homes, leaving just six luxury condominium residences remaining for sale at the dynamic community featuring retail, restaurants and residences in prestigious Essex County.
The new sales reflect Livingston Town Center’s widespread appeal, with buyers coming from different geographic locations and representing a variety of stages in life. They range from young professionals relocating from New York City and New Jersey’s “Gold Coast” to empty nesters in the area looking to downsize from large, single-family homes to a more manageable living experience.
“We’re certainly bucking the trend of January being a traditionally slow month for sales activity,” notes Trish Duffy, a Sales Representative from Coldwell Banker. “It’s a combination of buyers embracing the community’s exciting town center concept and the fact that only a limited number of residences remain.”
Ideally situated at the intersection of Livingston and East Mt. Pleasant Avenues, Livingston Town Center is a unique collection of upscale residences, well-manicured pocket parks and an inviting retail village developed by joint venture partners Roseland Property Company, Eastman Management and Jacobs Enterprises. The successful town center concept reflects traditional downtown environments with a focus on convenience and outdoor pedestrian activity.
Residents also enjoy an impressive suite of private, onsite amenities, including a Concierge, state-of-the-art fitness center, billiards room, business center, glass-enclosed indoor swimming pool and a rooftop garden/sundeck.
The well-conceived condominium residences at Livingston Town Center are conveniently located in an elegant mid-rise building set directly on the main boulevard. The homes blend classically-inspired interiors with contemporary urban design to create a desirable, cosmopolitan living experience. Every home has two parking spaces in an attached secured garage. The remaining homes offer spacious floor plans ranging from 1,534 to 2,677 square feet of living space. Prices start at $519,000, with immediate occupancy available.
A full menu of mortgage options is available to qualified buyers through Sun Home Loans, a division of Sun National Bank. The community was also approved for FHA financing which requires just a 3.5% down payment on a new home purchase.
