Tuesday, April 06, 2010 / Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums

MOUNTAIN LAKES, NJ, APRIL 6, 2010 – To celebrate the sales success at Hapgood Court, a beautiful collection of classic Hapgood-style replica homes on a lovely cul de sac, builder Tom Menard of  Menard Construction Company, Inc. will host a Close-Out Party on Sunday, April 11, 2010 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  According to Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums, one of the nation’s largest award winning residential brokerage firms, prospective new home buyers will be able to meet Menard and his staff, chat with neighbors over light hors d’oeuvres and tour the last remaining home in this unique collection of seven arts and crafts style homes.  Specially priced at $739,000, the last home is currently framed and underway for June 2010 delivery.


What’s more, with the current tax credit up to $6,500 for qualified repeated home buyers, Hapgood Court represents an excellent opportunity to own a beautiful new home in an exceptional location.


Featuring signature stucco and wood trim exteriors, fine woodwork inside and multiple levels, these homes are a rare find and a valuable investment as evidence by the exceptional sales.  Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums Vice President David Schoner explains, “This distinctive style of homebuilding was first introduced by Herbert J. Hapgood in his planned community in Mountain Lakes.  Tom Menard has preserved that unique design, while upgrading the homes incorporating the newest trendsetting features of today.  The result has been outstanding sales on a classic collection of new homes with real character and function, and investment potential.”


Tom Menard is no stranger to Hapgood homes or historic home building.  He and his firm, throughout 15 years, have been honored with numerous awards for historic renovations and remodeling projects including the Best Green Remodeler 2007 Award of Excellence from the Community Builders Association of New Jersey.  Moreover, Tom grew up in a Hapgood home and even owns one today.  He is proud of their heritage and states, “They are a big part of the area’s history and I wanted to honor that by creating this new collection at Hapgood Court.”


He adds, “My homes resemble many of the nostalgic features of Hapgood design, but, I’ve updated them to meet today’s home buyer needs with higher standards of construction, energy efficiency and more space.  The homes have the Hapgood look and feel, but, for example, the exteriors feature durable cultured stone and stucco, and inside select oak adorns the floors.  There are also a lot of hand applied wood moldings which adorn just about every room.”


The homes at Hapgood Court enjoy a beautiful setting on wood rimmed properties ranging from a little more than a third of an acre to almost a full acre.  Site Manager Mary Menard of Coldwell Banker in Mountain Lakes, describes, “Inside, the homes are spacious, yet offer the fine woodwork and details you would expect in a Hapgood design.  Owners love the parlor style entry which leads to the formal living and dining rooms, perfect for entertaining.  When it’s time to relax, the large great room with fireplace is the ideal gathering spot.  This room adjoins a breakfast room with access to an outer deck and the large custom crafted center island kitchen with wood cabinetry, granite countertops and designer appliances.”


Other features of the first level include a study / library; powder room; and access to a two-car garage.


Upstairs, owners find a luxurious master bedroom suite with two walk-in closets and lovely tiled master bath with soaking tub, dual vanities and shower stall.  Three additional bedrooms with large or walk-in closets, a full tiled bath and a laundry room complete this level.


Menard points out that the remaining home features stairs in place to what can become a finished walk-up attic level.  “It is all up to the owner’s needs and imagination,” she states.  “Owners can add additional bedrooms, a recreation room or a media room.”


Other features of each home include energy efficient heating and central air conditioning and access to a full basement.  Some models feature walk-out basement options.  Menard points out that with every home, buyers will work with Tom and his crew of craftsmen to add optional beams, paneling and trim to further enhance and personalize each home.


Hapgood Court enjoys an enviable location in northern Morris County, noted as a gateway to upstate New York and the numerous businesses off Routes 287 and the Route 80 corridor.  Menard points out families in Boonton enjoy exceptional recreational opportunities and a plethora of shopping from convenience centers to national retailers to quaint boutiques.  She states “For the fashionistas, Boonton is close to the Rockaway Town Square Mall, the Short Hills Mall and even the designer outlets at Woodbury Commons in New York.”  Fine restaurants and every season’s hottest recreation are all nearby.  Hapgood Court is also within close proximity to the Lakeland Hills YMCA.


Prospective new home buyers, who wish to own a replica historic home with all the conveniences of today, should attend the Close-Out Party and tour the last remaining home at Hapgood Court in Boonton on Sunday, April 11, 2010 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  For additional information or to set up an appointment to tour the homes at Hapgood Court, please contact Site Manager Mary Menard of Coldwell Banker in Mountain Lakes at (973) 263-0400 or visit
