TOWN OF WALLKILL, N.Y. – Woodside Knolls in the Orange County Town of Wallkill continues to buck the trends and contradict reports of a sluggish real estate market.
Most recently, the fast-selling collection of fee-simple townhomes belied the current state of the market when it welcomed more than 200 residents, guests and interested homebuyers to a “Sneak Peak” summer barbeque and walking tour, reports its developer Baker Residential.
The festive event enabled attendees to enjoy an afternoon of food and fun while obtaining a close up look at the new on-site recreational and social amenities which are now under construction, including a recreation center, pool, tennis court and half basketball court, as well as several of the most popular townhome designs. Most importantly, the event allowed potential homebuyers to greet and mingle with current residences and get a personal account of what makes Woodside Knolls so special.
“While large crowds were not uncommon during the halcyon days of the real estate market, it’s rare to attract hundreds to an event in today’s climate,” says Sales Representative Ashley Young. “The impressive turnout is a testament to the sizeable number of homebuyers excited about the opportunity to become a part of this community and anxious to see the progress we’ve achieved.
“Everyone in attendance enjoyed the chance to become acquainted with the family-friendly lifestyle that is the cornerstone of the community and see first-hand how our physical amenities and neighborhood are taking shape.”
Woodside Knolls has been quick to make its mark on the Hudson Valley attracting homebuyers who recognize the incredible value, comfort and appeal being offered in its well-appointed townhome designs and activity-rich environment. The strong attention Woodside Knolls is receiving has resulted in more than 50% of its homes sold just one year after opening sales.
“Woodside Knolls is unquestionably one of the most successful and notable residential sales openings in years,” says Ms. Young. “By offering attractive, well-conceptualized townhomes in a suburban location at prices well below what are found in New York City or Rockland and Westchester County’s, the community has had tremendous appeal to its target market of first-time homebuyers looking to purchase a residence that’s within their budget.”
Best of all, Woodside Knolls offers a private and tranquil lifestyle in a commuter friendly location within minutes of Route 84 and the New York State Thruway to provide a short commute to destinations in northern New Jersey and Manhattan. Public transportation is also nearby with the Metro North Railroad just minutes away.
“Our location is an added advantage, particularly for those homebuyers looking to escape the hustle-and-bustle of Manhattan,” Ms. Young points out. “Here, they can easily visit family and friends in New York City and then escape to the peaceful, retreat-like environment of Orange County.”
Three-bedroom homes at Woodside Knolls are priced from the mid-$200,000s and offer 2,400 to 2,600 square feet of living space. The imaginative layouts boast 2 ½ baths, a finished basement and two-car garage.
“The community blends easily with its surrounding natural Orange County countryside with heavily matured landscaping and considerable open space,” says Ms. Young.
First-time homebuyers aren’t the only ones attracted to Woodside Knolls. Empty-nesters looking to trade in large single-family homes have jumped at the opportunity to reside in this vibrant community.
Residents also receive easy access to the many leisure time delights of the historic Hudson Valley which is home to a variety of cultural and entertainment opportunities, including performing arts venues, historical attractions, fine shopping and a host of state parks and outdoor activities. There’s also no shortage of recreational diversions available in the Town of Wallkill itself. The township boasts twelve parks and recreational areas, including the public Town of Wallkill Golf Club.
