WYCKOFF, NJ, MAY 4, 2010 – Prospective custom home buyers are invited to an exciting day to design their new home for free at Hidden Glen at Wayne, a stunning collection of only nine four- to five-bedroom homes set on wooded properties by Hidden Glen Developers, LLC of Kinnelon.  According to Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums, one of the nation’s largest award winning residential brokerage firms, renowned, international architect Thomas Baio, R.A., A.I.A., of Metuchen will be on hand to create custom dream homes at the community for free during the exclusive “Architect Design Day” on Saturday, May 15, 2010 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  What’s more, the first two buyers who go into contract will receive a credit for the Mansion Tax at the closing of their newly designed home.


Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums Regional Specialist Mary Ellen Fuller explains, “This is an excellent opportunity to work with a celebrated architect in creating the home of your dreams in one of the state’s most beautiful locations.  Thomas has designed thousands of residential properties and received numerous industry awards and accolades including notable features in state and national media.  He has been called upon numerous times by the media to comment on housing trends, new home designs and market conditions.  Most recently, CNBC news and the Wall Street Journal Report on Sunday morning interviewed Thomas for a commentary on housing design trends and market recovery.”


She continues, “Beyond his industry expertise, Thomas is a true design expert, who listens carefully to owner’s wants and desires and then works with them to create functional and beautiful homes that are a work of art for many years to come.  Builder Michael Feinberg has worked with Thomas for many years and feels his hands on approach to designing each home perfectly reflects what purchasers can expect at Hidden Glen.”


Feinberg agrees, “Whether ‘upsizing’ or ‘downsizing,’ there is nothing like working with a team of experts to build a custom home.  I have been involved in the building industry for more than 28 years and am proud to bring a customer-centric approach to each home.  My planners, architect, contractors and I offer a unique Concierge Service to create a truly personal home that meets each owner’s utmost satisfaction.  My vision for Hidden Glen is to build exactly what the buyer desires with all the personalized elements to make it unique.  My buyers have direct input on what goes into their new home to fully reflect their individual lifestyle requirements.  To further enhance their vision and investment value, my staff and I make sure we incorporate old world craftsmanship and historical architecture with elements that focus on energy efficiency, water conservation, indoor air quality and uncompromising comfort and convenience.  Owners work with us to design their homes for the best use of natural light and placement on the property.  We are proud to offer owners all of this at an unmatched price and even prouder to offer Thomas’s expertise at no cost on this very special day.”


Owners will enjoy working with Feinberg, Baio and the team assembled in designing their new home at Hidden  Glen.  New Homes Associate Carole “Lynn” Brescia of Coldwell Banker in Wyckoff explains, “All homes will be custom crafted and built with the home owner’s involvement throughout the process.  The Cotswold model currently available highlights the superior workmanship, details and use of space that can be created at Hidden Glen.”


Cultured stone, cedar shake siding, characteristic peaks in the roof line and a variety of beautiful wood trimmed windows adorn the exterior of the model and sets the stage for the elegance inside.  “Every detail is hand applied from the wide plank hardwood flooring with walnut borders to the distinctive trim to ceiling details to the molding and wainscoting,” notes Brescia.  “An elegant family room with fireplace and dining room with wet bar are perfect for entertaining.  Even the kitchen is stylishly designed, but perfectly functional with furniture grade cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, top of the line brand name appliances and a sunny dining area.”


Other features of the first level include a library / study with walls of windows and beveled glass pocket doors to the family room.  The formal dining room includes a built in wine bar with granite countertop, a hammered copper sink and fine wood cabinetry with glass doors and a wine refrigerator.  Brescia points out that a first floor bedroom suite with full tiled bath is ideal for guests.


Upstairs, owners will enjoy a beautiful master bedroom retreat with two fully outfitted walk-in closets and lavish tiled bath with whirlpool, dual granite topped vanities and separate oversized shower customized with rain heads and body sprays.  Three additional bedrooms with two full baths and a spacious laundry room complete this level.  A finished walk up attic is perfect for a playroom or media / game room.


Hidden Glen is complimented by its exceptional location in Wayne.  “Situated in the heart of Passaic County,” explains Brescia, “Wayne is within 20 miles of New York City via train, bus or car and offers an easy commute to just about anywhere in the state via Routes 23, 287 and 80.  Its suburban setting with vista views combines a rich history, small town charm and city chic offering something for every lifestyle from community lakes to golf courses and country clubs to numerous restaurants.  Convenient shopping centers are plentiful as well as easy access to major northern New Jersey malls including the Short Hills Mall and Garden State Plaza.  The town also offers many business centers and opportunities.”
