The Dunns Fall in Love with Parkwood at Cambridge Crossings in Clifton, NJ

Wednesday, March 07, 2012 / Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums

CLIFTON, NJ – The search was on and with only 30 days to decide, Kathy and Lowell Dunn knew they had to think fast and make the right choice for their new home in an active adult community. According to Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums, one of the nation’s largest residential brokerage firms, the couple found it and more at Parkwood at Cambridge Crossings, a collection of luxurious condominium-style residences in a beautiful gated community in Clifton, NJ. With the first building approaching a sell-out, prices on the single-level two-bedroom, two bath units with on-site parking start from only $319,900.


“We sold our home and knew we had only a 30 day window to find a new one close to where my husband works and to all of our friends,” explains Mrs. Dunn. “We visited Parkwood at Cambridge Crossings and immediately loved it. But since this was a home we’d be living in for a long time, we wanted to see everything available in northern New Jersey and even into the border of New York to make sure we made the right decision. I’m proud to say we did.”


Mr. Dunn agrees. “I was sold the minute we drove into the community, but had to compare and make sure. I can say there is nothing else like it. When you drive through the gate, the guard smiles and waves and you know you are entering into a safe and friendly neighborhood.”


The Dunns also love the fact that the residences at Parkwood are maintenance free. “We don’t have to worry about shoveling snow or cutting the lawn,” states Mr. Dunn. “We can just relax and enjoy it.” They both pointed out how lovely the grounds are maintained including the walking paths and pool.


“The community is very active with a wonderful clubhouse,” Mrs. Dunn further explained. “There is always something social going on and we even have very talented neighbors who perform and entertain. I love that you can be as active as you wish.” The Dunn’s further point out that since Parkwood is in Clifton, the community is easily accessible to all that northern NJ has to offer including outstanding dining, shopping, sports, entertainment, health care, and NYC via buses and trains.


Beyond the community setting and all it has to offer, the Dunns fell in love with their new home. “We chose a two-bedroom with loft area which is perfect since our son is in transition and will be staying with us for a while. We have more than 1,800 square feet of space with high ceilings, decorative moldings and all top brand name features especially in the fully equipped kitchen with wood cabinetry, GE Profile stainless steel appliances and granite counters.”


The Dunns also love the luxuries in their bedroom suite with walk-in closet and ceramic tiled bath with dual vanity, soaking tub and separate shower stall.


Mrs. Dunn was most impressed by the way the staff at Parkwood helped them move in and even arrange their furnishings. “They were wonderful helping us put our belongings in this new, open space,” she explains. “From hanging our chandelier to the furniture arrangement to the pictures on the wall, they helped me create a perfect new home.”


Parkwood at Cambridge Crossings is by Parkwood Development, whose principals have created successful communities throughout the Metropolitan area.  The collection provides unique flexibility in that only one of the residents needs to be 55 to qualify and up to 15 percent can be as young as 50.  Like the Dunns, residents here are permitted to have an adult child (over 18) living with them.
