Long-Time Piscataway Natives Feel Right at Home at Delaware Crossing 55+ Active Adult Community

LOPATCONG, NJ 02/09/2014

“I thought the transition would be difficult considering how active we were in our community, but it turned out that we gained a very inviting community of neighbors and staff that made us feel welcome right from the beginning,” said Mrs. Carey who enjoys seeing her friends at the on-site clubhouse to use the exercise room, attend parties and play Bunco. 

The Careys heard about Delaware Crossing in June 2011 from their daughter, and since moving in have discovered the convenience of being near stores, restaurants and the bank as well as major roadways to get to Philadelphia or New York City, while still living in a secluded and safe development.  

“It’s also pretty stress free,” the retired educator, says. “My driveway and walkway as well as the roads within the community are all cleared quickly after each snow storm, and during warmer weather, the staff keep the grounds and my lawn green and well-maintained.”

The Careys live in a two-story model which features a spacious kitchen with breakfast area surrounded by an attractive bay window, and a beautiful formal dining room and dramatic great room with sliding patio doors and volume ceiling.  The master bedroom suite includes his and her closets, a lavish master bath with soaking tub, a separate shower and a double sink vanity. Upstairs, a spacious loft overlooks the great room and the home also features an additional bedroom, second full bath and two storage areas.

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.
