Whether a move up, family, first time buyer or empty nester, the spaciousness and amenities of a single family home but with the convenience of maintenance free living awaits at Echo Ridge Townhomes on Echo Ridge Way in Mountainside, NJ. This intimate community of only 23 luxuriously appointed three bedroom, two-and-a-half bath townhomes with flexible space, decks or patios, and scenic views by the talents of Menza and Beissel will host its Grand Opening on Sunday, Jan. 28, 2018 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Prices start from the mid-$700,000’s.

“We are excited to not only work once again with builders Michael Menza and Howard Beissel, but also to offer buyers this amazing new community which is designed to appeal to a variety of buyers,” notes Coldwell Banker New Homes Vice President David Schoner. “With more than 20 years experience in creating noteworthy communities and one-of-a-kind luxury homes in the area, Echo Ridge is sure to become another success story. They take the traditions of building a home to a new level by incorporating the latest design trends and building techniques to create stylish and functional homes that owners can truly appreciate and live in for many years to come. The most exciting part is that buyers, especially those in the area who are looking to right size whether empty nesting or just starting out, will now have this unique option in a town renowned for its convenience and close proximity to Manhattan via train or bus.”

He adds, “The community has been designed as a low-density neighborhood which allows a perfect balance between the townhomes and the preservation of its natural forest surroundings. Inside, each features a dramatic use of space, which allows buyers to easily transition from their single family home, condo or even an apartment. All offer brand name amenities, hand crafted finishes and mill work, and top notch invisible construction systems for efficiency and added value.”

New Homes Specialist Frank Isoldi of Coldwell Banker in Westfield East agrees and points out, “Buyers will immediately notice these townhomes are more light-filled and wider than most townhome designs with a popular open living concept perfect for today’s buyer’s lifestyle needs. The overall concept gives them a single family home feel, but without the maintenance.”

He continues, “Foyers are open and inviting bringing guests into the living area where everyone will love to gather, to chat by the fireplace or go out onto the deck or patio for al fresco entertaining. Meal prep is easy and stylish in the designer kitchen with center island, quartz countertops, plenty of wood cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Depending on the model, first floors can also feature a flex space. Other features include hardwood floors in the living areas, several multi-media ports, a powder room, laundry room, and access to the two car garage.”

Owners can choose a model with a first or second floor owner’s suite with walk-in closets and lavish tiled bath with dual vanities and oversized glass enclosed shower with bench seat and dual showerheads. Upstairs are two bedrooms walk-in closets, full tiled bath, study and an abundance of storage space. Some models offer a wonderful loft area perfect for a media room, office or whatever the owner desires. Basements are also available on select models and offer high ceilings, multiple windows and under slab plumbing for future finishing.

“Echo Ridge Townhomes is complimented by its location in Mountainside,” points out Isoldi. “It is one of the state’s most sought after addresses for its established neighborhood setting, convenient shopping, fine array of dining options, and close proximity to major commuter routes including Route 22, 78 and the Garden State Parkway as well as trains and buses to New York City from Summit and Westfield. Residents also enjoy top rated schools and wonderful recreation including nearby golf courses and country clubs, parks, lake, and the renowned Watchung Reservation.”

He adds, “The community is also very pet friendly with its sidewalks and close proximity to area parks including Echo Lake Park which features a dog run and three mile loop for nice long walks.”
