Livingston Woman Downsizes and Moves Up to North Caldwell 55+ Community
North Caldwell, NJ, November 2014:Marsha Golden was ready for a change. After 18 years in her large Livingston home, she was done with the big old house; done with the upkeep, done with all that space she no longer needed. She was ready for a new home and a new lifestyle – and she found both at K. Hovnanian’s® Four Seasons at North Caldwell, a thriving active-adult lifestyle community of luxurious condominium homes in Essex County that is now approaching closeout and offering its final opportunities.
“I remember visiting the sales trailer when the community first opened,” Marsha recalls. While she wasn’t quite ready to move at that point, something about the community caught her eye and stuck with her. “I knew I was going to end up here,” she laughs. “I needed to look at other communities, just to be sure. And I saw a lot! Every time I saw an ad for a 55+ community, I went to see it. But I knew I wanted to come here.”
What was it about K. Hovnanian’s® Four Seasons at North Caldwell that captured Marsha’s interest? For starters, it was the location. She appreciated the fact that North Caldwell is only about five miles from Livingston. “I really wanted to stay in the Livingston area,” Marsha said. “I have one son in Roseland, and another in Wayne – plus grandchildren and a lot of friends in the area.”
But more than that, Golden fell in love with the community. “I love the whole concept and the homes are beautiful,” she commented. “I didn’t feel like I was walking into an apartment building with small hallways. Everything is decorated beautifully and it really feels like home.”
The homes at K. Hovnanian’s® Four Seasons at North Caldwell are elegant and low maintenance, with three spacious condominium designs available. All feature single-level living and range in size from 1,957 to 2,428 square feet. Priced from the low-$500s (prices are subject to change), the homes have flowing layouts that are open and airy, with nine-foot-high ceilings, two bedrooms, two full baths, an open living-dining room, eat-in kitchen, family room with a fireplace, and much more.
“The size of my home is great for me,” Golden said. “I’m by myself now and my old house was so big! I wanted something a lot smaller. I love how beautiful the kitchen is and how everything is new. It’s bright with nice, high ceilings. It’s really pretty. My family likes it, too. They’re glad I’m so close and my daughters-in-law just raved about the home when they saw it. They think it’s fabulous.”
Homeowners at K. Hovnanian’s® Four Seasons at North Caldwell can also take advantage of many social and recreational opportunities in the community clubhouse, a private facility that includes a heated outdoor pool, bocce courts, a putting green, tennis court, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. Marsha enjoys using the clubhouse and meeting new neighbors. “I lived at the end of a street for so many years. I was kind of isolated there and really didn’t know any of my neighbors,” she said. “It’s so easy to meet people here. They have so many social events and even went to a couple of lunches before I moved in.”
The town of North Caldwell is another amenity unto itself. Named as one of the “Best Places To Live” in 2010 by New Jersey Monthly magazine and located in a beautiful part of northwestern Essex County, North Caldwell combines small-town charm with every urban convenience. New York City is only 30 miles away, with North Caldwell being served by New Jersey Transit on the Montclair-Boonton line. The neighborhood is just minutes from the New Jersey Turnpike, Garden State Parkway, Interstate Highways 78, 80 and 287, as well as Routes 3, 24 and 46. Newark Liberty International Airport is also only a short drive away.
Marsha Golden closed on her new home and moved in the summer of 2012 – and she couldn’t be happier. “You can tell I was ready to get out of my old house,” she laughs. “I would definitely tell others to consider buying here. They will love it! In fact, I play mahjongg with four other women and we alternate between homes. They’re all in big houses. I can’t wait to bring them here and show them my beautiful new home!”
