Forest Ridge will feature 48 new homes making it one of the largest fully approved residential real estate projects underway for 2013 in the greater Hudson Valley.
RISMEDIA (August 6th, 203)—Michael Bartolone, President of Lanwin Olympia announced today that construction is well under way on the first model home of Forest Ridge. The completely new real estate community in the Town of Newburgh, NY, Forest Ridge will feature 48 new homes making it one of the largest fully approved residential developments underway for 2013 in the greater Hudson Valley.
Forest Ridge features 48 individual lots that average 1.5 acres each. The homes of Forest Ridge are located in the Wallkill School District. There are ten home plans offered that range in size from 2115 to 3235 square feet with standard and custom options available. Slated for completion in October 2013, the 2400-square-foot Cambridge model is currently under construction, and when it is completed, will act as a fully furnished showroom to demonstrate many of the quality features available in a new Forest Ridge home. A list of available models can be found at http://www.forestridgehomesny.com.
“We have been experiencing a steady stream of new home buyers ever since we announced the project and completed the entryway to Forest Ridge in April,” explains Bartolone. “It is a very exciting time for us. We have had great response so far, and we’ve only just begun. We already have homes under contract and the first model isn’t even completed.”
In addition to the Cambridge model home, construction has also started on one of the first houses sold in Forest Ridge; it is on track for a 2013 completion.
“I think a lot of our early success has to do with the fact that we really took our time in developing our home models,” elaborated Bartolone. “By using innovative space planning techniques, we make 2300 square feet feel like 2800. Forest Ridge has a home model available to fit every generation of home buyer – from the new family that is going to need room for expansion, to the active senior couple that prefers to live in a one-level home but requires a little extra room for guests.”
Lanwin Olympia uses innovative design and building techniques to construct homes that are energy efficient and spatially maximized, while still honoring the architectural traditions of the surrounding community. All Forest Ridge models will be constructed to energy efficient standards. Due to their innovative design, Forest Ridge homes will feature more usable living space and reduced utility bills.
“The homes being built in Forest Ridge represent some of the best of what you can expect to find in Orange County real estate, and we have seen an overwhelming response from prospective buyers,” explains Dan Rand of Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty. “Traffic to the site has been especially high since Lanwin Olympia announced that they are offering $10,000 off of the pre-construction prices and an additional $10,000 off of personal upgrades on the next three homes under contract. Forest Ridge represents a perfect opportunity for our clients to get a brand new home with the all elements that they desire at a price that makes a lot of sense.”
Homes at Forest Ridgestart in the mid-$300s, and the pre-construction sale is currently underway.
