New Jersey Condo Living Shatters Negative Myth of Living in Cramped Spaces

The number of high-rise condominiums in Philadelphia is matched only by the negative press surrounding them.  But the story on the New Jersey side of the bridge, with smaller, more intimate condominium communities, is vastly different.

Siena – an age-restricted community by J.S. Hovnanian & Sons in Cinnaminson – is a prime example of a neighborhood and building done right.  The community’s home designs excel in maximizing space and comfort, while the features in each three-story elevator building create the lifestyle that so many condo communities promise but so few deliver.  In addition, homebuyers benefit from an exclusive 5 year tax incentive.

Contrary to the cramped spaces found in the city, buyers can choose from five floor plans ranging from 1,100 to 1,800 square-feet homes with two bedrooms, including master suites with entrance foyers; two baths; walk-in closets; separate dining and living rooms; laundry rooms and covered verandas.  Buyers interested in additional features to complement their home can choose from coffered ceilings, soaking tubs, pantry closets and studies.

Many residents report that the walk-in closets and large master bathrooms are improvements from their previous home, debunking the myth that they had to sacrifice to move to a condo.  And those who scaled down substantially tended to feel “liberated” by the experience of trashing or donating years of unused clothing, knick-knacks and even furniture.

Each home is ENERGY STAR® certified and promises a 15% reduction in energy usage as a result.  In fact, residents report an average utility bill of only $80 per month.  Further care was taken to reduce noise and vibration between the walls, with over a half dozen different measures implemented above building code requirements to enhance the living experience in each home.

While the quality and design of Siena is certainly a plus, the community’s location is definitely worth bragging about.  Situated on Route 130 directly across from the Shoppes at Cinnaminson – a brand new retail center – Siena offers convenient access to a variety of businesses along the corridor and surrounding areas including medical facilities, nearby golf courses, restaurants and retail stores.  Just minutes from Philadelphia, Siena is also great place for those on the go.

Siena’s location might be in the center of activity, but the community’s style is very inviting and neighborhood focused.  The elegant homes were designed to feel more like single-family homes than apartments, each boasting large spaces and plenty of natural light.  “The amenities at Siena are fabulous,” said Carol Young, Siena homeowner.  “The common areas, which include the lobbies and hallways, are even beautiful.  They’re like an extension of our homes. I love the design and affordability of my new home, and the location is convenient to everything.”

Of course, Siena also features two of the biggest attractions associated with condominium communities: no maintenance and the ability to “lock and leave.”  A state-of-the-art security system restricts building access to residents and their guests, while additional security details make residents feel safe at home and confident to leave their homes for as long as they’d like.

Another value-added feature of the community is the Club Room, which provides the perfect venue with enough space to host a social engagement.  Furnished with everything for any lifestyle including a fitness center, lounge, card room and billiards room, the Club Room creates camaraderie among residents and instills a strong sense of community.
