WESTFIELD, NJ, MARCH 3, 2010 – Old world craftsmanship, luxurious appointments and the latest construction techniques await custom home buyers at Scotch Meadow, a new collection of only five handcrafted homes on a wooded cul de sac in Scotch Plains.  According to Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums, one of the nation’s largest award winning residential brokerage firms, an exquisite five-bedroom, five- bath home is underway for immediate delivery and will be available for touring during special Open Houses on Sundays in March from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  This handcrafted 5,500 square foot masterpiece on almost one-third an acre of wooded property is specially priced at only $999,000.


The custom homes at Scotch Meadow are the creation of Ernest Fantini, principal of Betterview Homes.  According to Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums Vice President David Schoner, “Ernest and his team of professionals are bringing new meaning to old world craftsmanship at Scotch Meadow.  He runs a family business that offers more than 40 years experience in catering to the specific needs and desires of custom home buyers.  To his credit are more than 50 custom homes throughout the state and numerous homes in Europe, where he and many of his staff honed their skills in carpentry, masonry and fine home building.”


Schoner continues, “A signature touch of every Betterview Home is the detail found in every inch of the home.  From grand entry foyers with open handcrafted staircases to extensive moldings to outdoor patios to finished basements, every home offers its owner a beautifully adorned and functional use of space.”


Fantini adds, “My staff and I build more than homes.  We build lasting relationships with our customers since they are an integral part of the process from the design stage through to the day they open the front door.  We are proud that many of our customers are from referrals and repeat business.”


The homes at Scotch Meadow ideally showcase Betterveiw Homes’ talents in creating handcrafted residences.  New Home Associates Patrick Manfra of Coldwell Banker in Westfield describes, “Owners are immediately captivated by the marble floors, grand oak split staircase and open ceiling of the entry foyer in the home underway.  It is impression and sets the stage for the formal living and dining rooms with detailed ceiling, recessed lights, bay window and extensive decorative trim.”


Beyond the formal areas, owners will enjoy spacious casual space including a large family room with fireplace and back staircase to the upper level.  “The center island kitchen in this home may look like a showplace with its furniture grade cabinetry with glass doors, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances,” notes Manfra, “but as owners soon find, it is highly functional.  All the cabinets and drawers are extra deep to fit large platters, utensils and commercial grade cookware that is so popular today.”


Other features of the first level include a wet bar; bedroom with full bath, perfect for an au pair or in-law suite; laundry / mud room; and access to the two-car garage.  The home is also prewired for entertainment systems, networking and internet needs.


Upstairs, owners will find a relaxing master bedroom retreat embellished with coffered ceiling, chandelier, large sitting room, walk-in closets and lavish bath with Jacuzzi, frameless glass shower stall and dual furniture grade vanities.  Three additional spacious bedrooms with large or walk-in closets and access to a finished attic perfect for a playroom or media room complete the upper level.


Manfra points out that the basement of the home is partially finished and waiting for the owner to turn it into the room they desire.  “Owners can create a wonderful media room or recreation room here for the space opens to an outdoor stone patio,” states Manfra.


Scotch Meadow is complimented by its location in Scotch Plains, one of the state’s most sought after established neighborhoods.  “Scotch Plains is renowned for its small town charm and its simple commute to New York City via train or bus,” explains Manfra.  “Shops and boutiques in the downtown area offer plenty of convenience along with established strip malls and shopping centers.  There are plenty of restaurants and recreation including numerous golf courses and parks.  Residents are also within minutes of Route 78, 22, 28 and the Garden State Parkway for easy commutes to all points in the state.”
