Neighbors and Staff at Delaware Crossing 55+ Active Adult Community Make New Resident Feel Welcome

LOPATCONG, NJ 02/02/2014

“Everyone has been so inviting,” she says of her neighbors who she sees in the clubhouse for regularly scheduled Bunco and craft nights. “I’m looking forward to today’s Super Bowl party as well.”

Ms. Mottley heard about Delaware Crossing in January of 2013 and decided to move in when she determined it was time to downsize from her home in Bethlehem Township, in Hunterdon County.  Larken Associates’ home sale contingency program allowed her to lock in her pricing in March even though she didn’t move in until September—reducing the stress that people often feel when they have to buy and sell their homes at the same time.

“Life here is calm, and I don’t miss the yard work,” the retired Ethicon, Inc., Associate, says. “The staff here are wonderful about keeping my lawn green and well-maintained, and clearing the streets, sidewalks and my walkway right up to my front door when it snows.”

She loves the ranch-style home she shares with her two Havanese dogs, Norah and Thomas, which features 10’ ceilings, a spacious dining room with an enormous bay window, in-home laundry area, and a light filled master bedroom with a box ceiling, bay window, and a walk-in closet. Her lavish master bath includes a soaking tub, separate shower and double vanity sink and she enjoys the convenience of having her own two car garage, and additional attic storage.

Delaware Crossing features spa-like on-site amenities including a club house that features a whirlpool, billiard room, card room, TV lounge and state-of-the-art gym where residents can relax alone or with neighbors. There is also an outdoor heated pool open from Memorial through Labor Day, and a homeowner’s association takes care of residents’ lawns, including leaf and snow removal. 

The community consists of ranch or two-story models with eat-in kitchens and large dens, spacious master suites with tray ceilings, ample closets and upgraded en-suite bathrooms. All homes also come with a two-car garage and an appliance package, including full-size washer and dryer.

Delaware Crossing is nestled within the bucolic Lehigh Valley, offering residents the scenic beauty of the nearby Delaware River, hiking trails and ski slopes as well as dining, shopping and entertainment in Northern New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania that are all just a short drive away.

It is a pet-friendly collection of single-family attached homes for active adults priced from $249,990 with rentals starting at $1,645. Homes at the community offer two bedrooms, two baths in ranch designs and 2.5 baths in two-story designs, kitchen and laundry appliance packages and two-car garages.
