Larken Associates Seeks Variance to Build Three-Bedroom Homes at Horizons at Delaware Crossing 55+ Active Adult Community

LOPATCONG, NJ 01/14/2013

“More than 90 percent of our current residents and 70 percent of potential buyers are grandparents who would covet a three-bedroom unit for overnight visits from family, and to use as a separate office or utility room the rest of the week,” says David Gardner, president and COO of Larken Associates. “The extra bedroom is really a misnomer because our residents are retired or nearing retirement so they do not have large families, but they do like their space to enjoy hobbies away from their homes’ main areas.”

By offering three-bedroom layouts in the development, Larken hopes to expedite and encourage sales in the community which will benefit the housing market throughout the Lopatcong area. Two-bedroom units that are already completed will not be eligible for this conversion, and the variance would not change any other conditions of the community including its age-restricted requirement.

“We are trying to keep pace with the demands and expectations of the market, and additional space is the top request from current and potential residents,” continues Gardner.

The three-bedroom conversion is an optional upgrade available for units currently being constructed with floor plans that include a loft space, and will not change the exterior architecture of any of the units.

Horizons at Delaware Crossing is a collection of single-family attached homes for active adults. Homes at the community currently feature two bedrooms and two baths in ranch designs, and two bedrooms and 2.5 baths in two-story designs, with upgraded kitchen, in-unit laundry appliances and two-car garages.

Sales at the community start at $249,990 and rentals begin at $1,495. For additional information please call 908.454.2267 or log into
