Active, Family-Friendly Lifestyle Sets Applecross Country Club Apart
DOWNINGTOWN, Pa. (May 1, 2012)— It’s quite possible that the exclusive 18-hole Nicklaus Design golf course that was recently named one of the 25 best new courses in the United States by Golfweekcarries the biggest “wow factor” at Applecross Country Club, but Louis Ciliberti doesn’t golf. For his family, it was the plethora of other amenities and well-crafted homes that sold them on the exclusive Downingtown community, which features a variety of home designs to suit any lifestyle.
“We love the scenic walking trails, the pools and fitness center,” Ciliberti said. “It’s also a great area for the kids to ride their bikes.”
Ciliberti was in the market for a new home due to job relocation, and a friend in the area recommended Applecross. And though he doesn’t golf, he and his wife did select a home with a “magnificent golf course view.”
“I was also aware of Pulte’s reputation as solid builder,” he said of Applecross developer Pulte Homes, which is one of the award-winning brands of PulteGroup.
Ciliberti flew up from Texas to visit Applecross, and fell in love with a Merritt townhome design.
“We like the spacious layout, the basement was a great bonus and the landscaping is well done,” Ciliberti said. “Coming from a custom home in Texas, we were pleased to find a number of the same upgrade features at Applecross.”
He also credits the Applecross sales team with going above and beyond the call of duty to help make the family’s move possible.
“Being 1,800 miles away it’s so difficult, but Pulte really helped us out and they’re still helping.”
Now that his job has become permanent, the family is considering upgrading to a larger home in the community.
“We love it here,” he said. “We can be near family and friends and now we can see the change of seasons.”
The Merritt is a spacious two-story townhome three bedrooms, two and one-half baths, and an attached garage for a total of 1,762 square feet of living space that starts at $239,990.
