Garden Homes Offering Winter Incentives to Buyers at Luxury Bergen County Communities


Garden Homes Development, one of the region’s largest homebuilders, offers prospective buyers a variety of luxury communities in Bergen County. Through the month of March, they are offering winter incentives at CherryWood at River Vale; The Whitney at Allendale; and Altair, an active adult community in Elmwood Park. 

CherryWood at River Vale is Garden Homes’ newest for-sale luxury community, offering quiet charm and elegance blended with suburban convenience in River Vale Township. This lavishly landscaped property contains an intimate collection of two- and three- bedroom town homes and carriage homes with garages in six gracious floor plans. Available homes range in price from the  $400,000’s to the $700,000’s. Through March 31, 2013, purchasers will receive 1% of the purchase price back as a credit towards closing costs on their home.

River Vale is accessible from major thoroughfares including the NJ Turnpike/I-95, 80, 17, the Garden State and the Palisades Interstate Parkway. Rockland Coaches and NJ Transit’s rail service from the Westwood and Hillsdale train stations provide service to Midtown Manhattan.

The Whitney at Allendale, another sought after new development, features town homes and carriage homes in Bergen County’s lovely Allendale. The Whitney offers discerning buyers 138 residences, nearly 50% of which have sold, and for the month of March, unbeatable deals for buyers of these stunning residences. Like CherryWood, The Whitney will also offer 1% of the purchase price back to homebuyers to put toward closing costs. Additionally, Garden Homes will pay for the first year of maintenance fees.

This distinguished gated community features brick paver driveways, an outdoor pool, a playground, club house with fitness facility and state-of-the-art equipment, and a custom-designed great room, kitchen, and card room. Located a short distance from the NJ Transit Allendale station, serviced by the Main Line and Bergen County Line trains, service to Manhattan takes about an hour.

“Both CherryWood and The Whitney offer the luxurious living associated with new construction with an unbeatable proximity to a variety of transportation options,” noted Scott Loventhal, Director of Development for Garden Homes Development.

Active adults who are 55 or better in Bergen County searching for the perfect home need to look no further than Altair, an intimate community of 187 condominium homes in Elmwood Park. Well-appointed one-bedrooms with a den/library and two-bedroom homes range in size from 814 to 1,338 square feet of luxurious living space and feature designer appointments, spacious great rooms, and master bedroom suites with walk-in closets, lavish master baths and private balconies.

At Altair, prospective buyers are offered the most enticing winter incentives deal of all. Through the end of March, Garden Homes will credit new homebuyers $2500 towards closing costs, pay one year of their maintenance fees, and provide a complimentary washer/dryer and stainless steel refrigerator.

“Prospective buyers have the option to fully customize their home at an affordable price,” noted Mr. Loventhal. “Altair residents enjoy a resort-inspired, low-maintenance lifestyle, and appreciate the convenience of reserved covered parking on the ground floor.”

The community’s clubhouse, a well-appointed space featuring a fully-furnished great room with a stone fireplace, gourmet kitchen, card room, fully-equipped exercise room and outdoor heated pool and spa, inspires homeowners to socialize during regular gatherings and holiday parties.

Altair is minutes away from the many national retailers found along Routes 17 and 4, major shopping malls including the Garden State Plaza and Paramus Park Mall and is less than 10 miles from the arts and cultural venues in New York City.

For more information, please contact the sales offices for each development at the following numbers: CherryWood at River Vale/201-391-4686; The Whitney at Allendale/201-236-1600; and Altair/201-794-2329; or visit
