Professional happy to call River Trace at Branchburg the perfect first home

Thursday, April 08, 2010 / Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums

READINGTON, NJ, APRIL 7, 2010 –A shopping trip bought Dave Stevenson so much more than he expected.   According to Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums, one of the nation’s largest award winning residential brokerage firms, the fateful ride introduced him to River Trace, a collection of stylish two bedroom flats in Branchburg.  In a few short weeks, the area scientist joined dozens of home buyers who took one look and were hooked on the craftsman-style community by River Trace, LLC, a new partnership between local builders, American Classics, LLC of North Branch and Mercal, LLC of Bridgewater.  Currently, Phase I is sold out and prices on Phase II units start from the low $300,000’s.


Stevenson explained his journey, “I work in Bridgewater and had been looking for a first home off and on for a couple of years.  I wanted new construction that was close to work, but all I found were older units or age restricted communities.  Then, while shopping one day, as luck would have it, I saw the banner for River Trace and decided to check it out.  It looked great online, so went for a visit.  I was very impressed by the construction of the buildings, the long list of amenities and the location was perfect.  It’s within a six miles from where I work.”


Two things about River Trace really caught Stevenson’s attention - the top notch detail in the units and its excellent location.


“I really felt confident about the builders,” he said.  “Their attention to detail and quality of the workmanship was brilliant. Even though my home came complete with a full list of standard features, I also liked the fact that I was able to choose upgrades to stylize my home.”


Stevenson chose a third level two-bedroom unit which includes a spacious family room, dining room and large eat-in kitchen.  He added hardwood floors in the study.  “I liked this upper level unit the most since it gets a lot of sun, has great wooded views and offers a nice lounge area in the bedroom,” Stevenson described.


Other impressive features included a private balcony, individual storage unit, convenient elevator access, and secured underground parking.


Besides the spaciousness and style of the units, Stevenson also loved River Trace’s location.  He stated, “Branchburg is a nice area.  There are a lot of families and professionals here, and it is so close to everything, including where I work.”


River Trace Co-Site Managers Kathryn Barcellona and Barbara Bozzone of Coldwell Banker in Readington agreed, “Branchburg artfully combines a rich history, which dates back to the Lenni Lenape Indians, with all the modern conveniences that today’s condo buyers demand.  The area offers open spaces and country views with endless recreation at nearby parks, historic sites and golf courses.  Yet it offers easy accessibility to just about everywhere in the state.  Routes 22, 202 and 206, as well as I-78 and I-287 make commuting and traveling to the Princeton corridor, Northeastern New Jersey and New York City a breeze.  Plus, public transportation via the North Branch train station and bus service offers a convenient commute to Midtown Manhattan and all the entertainment it has to offer.”


They added, “Nearby Commerce Bank Park is the perfect place to catch a ball game or local event in town.  Raritan Valley Community College not only offers exceptional educational, but also a wide array of theatrical productions.  What’s more, there is a plethora of shopping choices from local boutiques to convenience centers to large shopping centers including the Bridgewater Commons Mall.  The Flemington Outlets are also just a short drive away.”


When asked if he would recommend River Trace, Stevenson said, “Absolutely!  It’s the perfect place for all ages.”


Barcellona and Bozzone added, “But don’t wait.  With the continual interest in the community and the potential $8,000 tax credit for qualified first time buyers and up to $6,500 for repeat buyers ending April 30, 2010, this is an exceptional time to purchase a new home.”


Prospective condo buyers, who are searching for a beautifully crafted new home in a convenient location, should look no further than River Trace at Branchburg.  Units are available to tour by appointment.  To make an appointment or for additional information, please contact Co-Site Managers Kathryn Barcellona and Barbara Bozzone of Coldwell Banker in Readington at the River Trace Sales Office at (908) 202-9797 or visit  or
