Tuesday, October 27, 2009 / Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums

WAYNE, NJ, OCTOBER 27, 2009 – Beautiful estate homes have graced the hillsides of Essex County, New Jersey, for centuries due to its natural beauty and convenient location to New York City.  Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums, one of the nation’s largest award winning residential brokerage firms, is proud to announce that three new estates, which are the personification of old world craftsmanship with today’s latest building techniques, are underway for quick delivery in West Orange.  Created by award winning area builder Michael Bielak Builders, one of the estates is in the acclaimed collection, The Fountains of West Orange, another is at Old Indian Estates and the third is underway on Margulis Court, overlooking the renowned Essex County Country Club and golf course.  Prices start from $1,749,000.


“What sets these estates apart from other luxurious homes is the unique old world artistry and attention to detail reminiscent of the extraordinary beauty of European architecture and design,” explains Coldwell Banker New Homes & Condominiums Regional Specialist Mary Ellen Fuller.  “Each home is meticulously crafted with the finest materials available today and properly positioned on the property to take the fullest advantage of the views – some of which include the New York City skyline.”


She adds, “Michael and his team of highly skilled craftsmen have been involved in the planning, design and construction of numerous prestigious new homes for more than 20 years.  They incorporate traditional details into free flowing floor plans that are perfect for the most discerning home buyers.  Each home also includes a full host of today’s most requested features and conveniences.  To Michael’s credit is The Castle, also at The Fountains in West Orange, an award winning home which emulates historic structures in Europe.”


The new estate underway on 39 Gregory Avenue at The Fountains spans more than 12,000 square feet of fine European craftsmanship.  According to Co-Site Manager Natalie Lentini of Coldwell Banker in Wayne, “The uniqueness of this estate begins the moment you enter the gated community and come up the driveway.  The home is perched on a majestic hilltop setting and offers beautiful views of the surrounding community and New York City’s skyline from the tall windows and luxurious outdoor terraces.  Inside, the sweeping entry foyer with marble floors and curved dual marble staircases sets the stage for the magnificence of this home.  Views span from the front door out to the fountain on the outdoor back terrace.”


This estate was designed with entertaining in mind with elegantly adorned formal areas; eight marble fireplaces; a cherry library; and a epicurean center island kitchen with furniture grade cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, professional grade designer appliances, and butler’s pantry with wine cooler and dishwasher.  Lentini adds, “Owners will be pampered in their luxurious master bedroom retreat with two fireplaces, his and hers marble bathrooms, sitting room and oversized walk-in closet with dressing area.”  Other features include an elevator and three car garage.  The estate is priced at $3,099,000.


Co-Site Manager Tom Mayer of Coldwell Banker in Wayne describes the 5,850 square foot estate on Old Indian Road as “the perfect combination of old world charm and new construction.”  He states, “The homes offers six spectacular fireplaces, custom crafted moldings, and a premium landscape package to name a few.  The gourmet kitchen is a chef’s dream with center island, granite countertops and Thermador stainless steel appliances all wrapped in fine cherry wood cabinetry.  For the owners, the home offers a luxurious master treat with fireplace in the sitting area and marble bath with whirlpool and custom shower with body sprays.”  This elegant home with three car garage is priced at $1,749,000.


Overlooking the lush greenery of a golf course, the third estate is just as luxurious and situated on a lovely property at 8 Margulis Court.  Co-Site Manager Albert Garcia of Coldwell Banker in Wayne notes this 5,650 square foot home is opulent, yet charming with two story marble entry; great room with vaulted ceilings and fireplace; conservatory with fireplace; library; and a beautiful professional landscape package with paver stone walkway and driveway.  The estate is priced at $1,899,000.


The three estates are further complimented by their exceptional location in West Orange, an established community enhanced by its history and exceptional views.  Lentini explains, “West Orange was home to Thomas Edison and is where hundreds of visitors enjoy his historic lab and museum.  While cosmopolitan with its close proximity to business hubs in northern New Jersey and New York City via bus, train or car, West Orange still retains a small town feel with plenty of historic and new homes dotting beautiful tree lined streets.  Boutiques blend with convenience centers and the town offers top rated public and private schools.  For recreation, there are dozens of parks and golf courses including the Francis A. Byrne Golf Course and the Essex County Country Club.  One of the most sought after areas is the Eagle Rock Reservation set high on the cliffs offering unrivaled views of the New York City skyline from the George Washington Bridge to the Verrazano Bridge.  The acclaimed Highlawn Pavilion Restaurant, housed in a restored Italian-style summer retreat, rests on the edge of the cliff in the Reservation.  Other noted area attractions include the Turtle Back Zoo and Codey Ice Skating Arena.”
