WILLIAMSTOWN, NJ—Long before Rosemary and Mike Costello moved into their spacious new home at Summerfields West in Williamstown last June, the long-time Camden County residents were well acquainted with the convenient location, serene setting and extraordinary value that embody this popular 55+ community. Each time they visited their son who lives in the area, they would drive through Summerfields West on their way home to their former residence of 45 years, discovering another advantage that Summerfields West would bring to their new retirement lifestyle with every visit. “Once we decided to move to an active adult community, Summerfields West was a foregone conclusion for us,” said Rosemary. “We had driven though so many times and loved the inviting community entrance, the model homes, the tree-lined streets and the smiling faces. We’ve made so many friends so quickly since living here. In fact, after moving in, we realized that we already knew the neighbors across the street!” She also noted that relocating in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic to this safe, secure and quiet neighborhood made choosing Summerfields West all the more worthwhile. “We were familiar with everything about the community and felt extremely secure about our future,” Rosemary said. “Not to mention, our previous house sold so quickly, it was nice to know exactly where we wanted to live even before we made the move.”
Rosemary and Mike purchased the expansive Evergreen model, one of six available at Summerfields West. “We purchased the Evergreen for several reasons but mostly for the beautiful morning room. It’s so relaxing and spacious; our favorite room in the house. We also like the practicality of such a good-sized laundry room.”
Mayberry of South Jersey
The well-built homes at Summerfields West are designed to be customized to suit homeowners’ specific needs, such as expanding or reconfiguring rooms and adding lifestyle amenities. The Costellos chose a fireplace and also added 2 more feet in length to the dining room. “It was the best decision we made, because it also gave us another 2 feet in the living room, which opened up the living area tremendously,” Rosemary said. They also upgraded the kitchen cabinets, added a support beam for a future carport, extended the driveway and selected an oversized shed to accommodate Mike’s tools and other necessities. “One thing my husband noticed from the get-go, was the quality of construction that went into all of the home designs at Summerfields West. “He used to be in construction and really knows a well-built house when he sees one.” We couldn’t be happier with our wonderful house, our active lifestyle and friendly neighbors. How friendly? My husband refers to Summerfields West as ‘The Mayberry of South Jersey’.”
Accessible and Easy Care Living
The accessible location of Summerfields West has always been one of its strong selling points, but even more so to the Costellos. “As fate would have it, we are now living centrally between all 3 of our children. We can visit them and they can visit us more often than if we had chosen one of the more outlying adult communities in South Jersey, where homes can be much more expensive and the lifestyle more costly to maintain,” she said. At Summerfields West, homeowners enjoy lawn mowing and roadway snow plowing services as well as no Homeowners Association Fees (HOA).
