Baker Residential Preparing To Release Third Housing Section Well Ahead Of Schedule

ALLAMUCHY, N.J. –- With the inventory of available homes dwindling in its second housing phase, Baker Residential is now assembling a list of VIP Buyers for the third townhome section at Mountain Ridge at Panther Valley.
Sales for the new offering of magnificent three-bedroom residences are expected to open in early spring at the exclusive suburban community, according to Barbara Cohen, Sales Representative for Baker Residential, which is developing Mountain Ridge in the sought-after Panther Valley neighborhood in Warren County’s Allamuchy Township. To add their name to the VIP List and receive some of the first opportunities to purchase in the third phase, prospects can call 908-852-0016 or visit

The announcement of the upcoming townhome section comes as Mountain Ridge celebrates the debut of a new on-site sales center and the initial residents moving into their new home at the community,

“We’ve sold more than 90% of the homes in our first two housing phases, forcing us to make our third section available in a few short months — well ahead of our originally projected timeline,” Ms. Cohen says. “This proves there are a large number of first-time homebuyers and empty-nesters who were waiting for the perfect opportunity to own a brand new, spacious townhome in a fantastic community where all of the lifestyle components are complete.

“The accelerated sales pace has purchasers lining up for our VIP List to avoid missing out on this incredible living opportunity. Of course, anxious homebuyers not willing to wait still have the opportunity to purchase in our current phase which has a select few homes remaining.”

Sales at Mountain Ridge have been fueled by a variety of Federal programs that add considerable value to new home purchases. This is particularly true for first-time buyers who have found the community’s approval by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) makes homeownership extremely attainable thanks to friendly FHA financing that requires only 3.5% down.

“We’ve started construction on the few remaining townhome buildings available for sale in the first two housing phases,” adds Ms. Cohen. “As a result, we’ll have a number of homes which can be delivered in time for buyers to take advantage of the recently expanded Federal Tax Credit that provides up to $8,000 for first-time homebuyers and up to $6,500 for those who have owned their home for at least five years if they close on a new residence by June 30, 2010.”

With sales and development moving so quickly, visitors to Mountain Ridge can obtain a better sense of the comfort, charm and appeal of the neighborhood. Several site improvements are now complete, including the main entryway, the main access road and internal roads in the first two phases, providing a strong glimpse of how the community will look once finished.

Five different designs are offered at Mountain Ridge with affordable pricing starting at just $249,990. Homes range from 1,968 to 2,850 square feet and boast 2.5 baths, one-or two-car garages, as well as designer interior appointments such as walk-in closets, gourmet kitchens and full finished basements included in the purchase price.

“Mountain Ridge at Panther Valley’s housing designs fulfill a broad range of lifestyles,” says Hollis Schilp, another Baker Sales Representative. “Young couples and single-professionals appreciate the fact that the spacious floorplans provide plenty of room to grow. Empty-nesters downsizing from large single-family homes are pleased to discover they don’t have to sacrifice extra space to benefit from the ease of maintenance-free living.”

Homes at Mountain Ridge have been designed to reflect the natural beauty of Panther Valley, which is defined by rolling hills and heavily wooded terrain. Each townhome building will combine design elements with country-inspired details to create streetscapes of enormous grace and flair.

“Our unique location at the top of a mountain provides panoramic views of the surrounding countryside to strengthen the tranquil, small-town environment,” Ms. Schilp says.

The striking community is part of Panther Valley and its world-class recreational amenities. Residents will enjoy two sparkling lakes, two beautiful pools with a third to come, a wealth of tennis courts and the 18-hole Panther Valley Golf & Country Club located within the gated Panther Valley community and available on a membership-only basis.
Mountain Ridge homeowners will also appreciate the community’s convenient location, which offers a quick trip to the array of business, cultural and entertainment opportunities throughout northern New Jersey and beyond. The community is located in close proximity to a several major highways, including Routes 80, 287 and 78, as well as commuter train and bus stops.

“If its outdoor recreation they seek, Mountain Ridge is in the heart of one of New Jersey’s natural havens,” Ms. Schlip indicates. “The community lies in the shadows of the Allamuchy and Stephens Mountains, while the 70,000-acre Delaware Water Gap is nearby where fishing, boating, camping, kayaking and more can be found. “
