Livingston Broker Chooses Rapid-Selling James Place for New Home
Morris Township, NJ, December 2014:With its first three phases completely sold out – and homes in Phase 4 quickly going under contract – James Place in Morris Township is opening its final phase. It’s easy to see why this successful new community from award-winning builder Mark Built Homes has appealed so strongly to so many people. Jerry Jacob of Livingston, NJ, is among the growing list of buyers who have chosen James Place. Jacob, Branch Manager for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Livingston office, summed up why he and his wife Suzen chose to buy in the new community: “It was like the builder asked us what we wanted and built the home just for us,” he said. “Basically, everything we wanted in a new home is exactly what they are offering.”
James Place features exquisitely designed townhomes in one of North Jersey’s prime locations, and it’s the first community of its kind to come to Morris Township in fifteen years. Buyers have a choice of six spacious, exquisitely designed floorplans that offer two or three bedrooms, with patios and two-car garages. Priced from the low-$600s, the homes offer from 2,000–3,000 square feet of luxurious living space, including abundant storage and closet space.
“We were not looking to downsize, but to right-size,” Jerry Jacob explained. “We were living in a single-family home and we were ready for a move. Our new home at James Place is not any smaller or larger than what we had, but it’s a much better use of space. The open floorplan was very important for us. Having nine foot ceilings on both floors was also a huge plus. We appreciate the large closets, all the fine finishes, and having a two-car garage. The home really does have everything we were looking for.”
Buyers at James Place enjoy a unique purchasing process that allows them to choose from a variety of luxurious, high-quality packages that have been pre-selected by an award-winning decorator. There are no options or upcharges, which makes the purchasing process much easier. Homes have been designed with contemporary features and finishes that clearly reflect what today’s buyers are seeking, including the nine-foot ceilings that Jacob mentioned; plus lots of natural light to provide a bright, airy ambience; and spectacular gourmet island kitchens that open to dramatic great rooms. There is also a limited selection of homes that feature first-floor owner’s bedrooms, a popular option that has sold quickly.
In addition to the ideal home designs, the Morris County location was also very appealing to the Jacobs, as it has been for many buyers at James Place. The Jacobs appreciate the fact that Morris County taxes are lower than some other neighboring counties in North Jersey, including Essex County where they were living. Being so close to Morristown was also a positive feature. “It’s so easy to get into Morristown,” Jerry Jacob commented. “The town is already a hot place to be and it’s just getting hotter. The town center is burgeoning, there are all kinds of great restaurants and businesses. It’s just a great place to be.”
James Place is located between Southgate Parkway and Old Harter Road at 250 James Street, close not only to I-287 but other major roadways including Routes 124, 24, and 202. For commuters, there are three New Jersey Transit Stations (Madison, Convent and Morristown Stations) within 10 minutes of James Place that offer direct service to midtown Manhattan, only 45 minutes away. Homeowners are also just two miles from Morristown’s downtown shopping and dining scene, with over 100 restaurants that represent more than 35 different cuisines. Nearby shopping malls include Short Hills and Bridgewater Commons, where shoppers enjoy designer boutiques and upscale department stores.
Morris Township also offers a variety of local parks, trails and opportunities for outdoor recreation, including Morristown National Historic Park and its Jockey Hollow section, featuring nearly 27 miles of walking trails. The area is replete with equestrian activities, golf courses and culturally rich attractions like the Morris Museum, the Shakespeare Theatre of NJ, and the Mayo Performing Arts Center, where well-known bands, musicians and comedians appear regularly.
James Place itself offers a peaceful, park-like ambience, with hundreds of trees planted throughout the community, and acres of preserved land. The neighborhood will also feature a walking/running trail and an outdoor fitness station for homeowners.
These kinds of special touches and attention to detail are typical of Mark Built Homes, the builder behind James Place. Over three generations, Mark Built has made a name for itself as a prestigious builder of homes that are creatively distinct and architecturally unique, with an unparalleled reputation for craftsmanship. For the past two years Mark Built has been awarded “Community of the Year” by the New Jersey Builders’ Association (NJBA), for the enormously successful 50 Parmley and 14 Euclid at Summit Place. This award is the highest honor given each year to a community that has demonstrated excellence across the board in architecture and design. Like James Place, these communities were successful from their earliest days, garnering rapid sales and numerous awards on their quick path to selling out.
