After Long Search, South Jersey Buyers Delighted with New Home in Woolwich 55+ Community
Information provided by the Four Seasons at Weatherby to Patch.
They say good things come to those who wait. Roland Turmol and Lyle Eastlack can attest to that old saying, based on their recent experience as homebuyers. After searching for nearly two years, Turmol and Eastlack are thrilled with their new home at K. Hovnanian’s® Four Seasons at Weatherby, south Jersey’s best-selling 55+ resort-at-home community, where they moved this past June.
“We had wanted to move for a while,” Turmol shares, “but we had a single-family home that we needed to sell and when we first started looking, that’s when the housing market took a hit. So we waited a while longer.” Eastlack picks up the story. “We knew we wanted to be in a specific area – not too far north of Salem County, to stay close to work – so we looked mostly around Gloucester County. We must have looked at maybe ten other communities.”
Located near Swedesboro in the picturesque countryside of Woolwich, K. Hovnanian’s® Four Seasons at Weatherby is one of the fastest-growing municipalities in New Jersey, featuring beautifully appointed single-family homes in six distinctive designs. So what was it about this community that ultimately won over Turmol and Eastlack?
“We had driven by the community a lot and sort of always wondered about it,” Turmol explains. “We liked that it was a gated community and just thought it looked like a great development. We weren’t specifically looking for a 55+ neighborhood, but we were pleased when we saw that. So we finally decided to visit. And I have to tell you, as attractive looking as the community is from the road, once you come in and actually see it, and the clubhouse and everything that’s here, it’s very, very appealing. It’s a beautiful looking neighborhood and the quality of the homes was a big factor.”
“I think it was kind of inevitable that we were going to buy here,” Eastlack adds, laughing. “We came back many times for over a year and I have to tell, you the people were great. Marsha and June were just wonderful; they always welcomed us. We must have asked them every question under the sun and we never felt like we were a bother!”
Now over 90% sold, with only 13 home sites remaining (including five homes available for
quick move-in), K. Hovnanian’s® Four Seasons at Weatherby presents one of the best new-home value opportunities in southern New Jersey, with pricing on select homesites starting from only $174,950. The beautifully appointed, maintenance-free homes feature open, modern designs, with beautiful exteriors and smart, efficient planning and detailing throughout. Homes feature generous living areas with 2–3 bedrooms, 2–3 baths and 2-car attached garages.
Turmol and Eastlack purchased a Sanibel design. “It’s beautiful,” Turmol says. “It’s one level, which is great because we didn’t want stairs. It has hardwood floors, which we wanted. It’s a very open model. We have a beautiful sunroom and the master bedroom is phenomenal, with an upgraded master bath. We also love the idea of using the loft space for storage. And the family room is one of our favorites.”
As lovely as the homes are, the community amenities are equally impressive to many buyers. The community clubhouse at K. Hovnanian’s® Four Seasons at Weatherby really does offer a resort-like experience every day, including a sparkling outdoor pool, sports and billiards room, state-of-the-art fitness center, tennis and bocce courts, and a cozy fireplace lounge. It’s an ideal place to relax, socialize and meet new neighbors, which Turmol and Eastlack are enjoying doing.
“We’re meeting more and more people all the time,” Eastlack shares. “We went to an open house for newcomers, where we met some new neighbors. And we’re planning on going to the upcoming holiday get-together at the clubhouse and getting involved with that. It’s a very welcoming community. Nobody knew us when we moved in, but everyone waves to you and is very friendly.”
Living at K. Hovnanian’s® Four Seasons at Weatherby, homeowners enjoy being in the country, while at the same time being just an easy drive from anywhere they need to be. “It’s very centralized,” Turmol says. “We’re so close to Philadelphia, the airport is only twenty or thirty minutes away, Route 295 is right here and the turnpike is close by. Everything is pretty much at your disposal. There’s a supermarket, a drugstore and a shopping plaza right down the road. It’s all here, or within a very close distance!” Being so centralized and close to major thoroughfares, the community offers easy access to places like Center City Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Wilmington, and Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Homeowners are also just minutes from local farmers’ markets teeming with fresh Jersey produce, as well as antique shopping, great restaurants, and challenging public and private golf courses.
With the limited number of homes remaining at K. Hovnanian’s® Four Seasons at Weatherby, and given the tremendous value, it’s anticipated that the final 13 homesites will sell quickly. Roland Turmol and Lyle Eastlack would be among the first to encourage interested buyers to come visit the community soon. “We’ve had such an excellent experience here,” Turmol shares. “People need to come and look at these homes to see their quality, to drive around and look at how beautiful the landscape is, to see how well the community is laid out and how friendly everyone is.”
