New Year and Thoughts of New Beginnings
With the holidays ahead, thoughts about good health, prosperity and family will once again echo across America. But for Regina and Mike Riddle, another very tangible and, indeed—life changing—item can be added to the list. The decision they made to purchase a home at Summerfields West in Williamstown, NJ. Summerfields West is one of the most popular and affordable 55+ communities in the entire South Jersey region. Since moving into their spacious new home and becoming the new neighbors in a vibrant community this past September, the couple have nothing but rave reviews of what they continue to experience at Summerfields West.
“My husband and I have been married for 31 years,” Regina said. “We’ve lived in California, Nebraska and Washington Township in New Jersey. But the home we purchased here at Summerfields West is the first one that we truly love. Not only the house, but everything about this community goes above and beyond expectations. From how the community is managed, to our friendly neighbors and so much more. We are so thankful that we chose Summerfields West after looking at so many other active adult communities.”
Customization:the Key to Making it Your Home
The Riddles purchased the popular Brook model, featuring 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths and efficiently planned living areas throughout. The couple soon realized that, due to such a low base price, they could easily afford to incorporate customized features to suit their specific needs. “The standard price was so reasonable, we were able to add a lot of customization,” Regina said. They changed out and upgraded the lighting fixtures, adding ceiling fans, upgrading faucets and Formica and installing a back splash in the kitchen. They chose to upgrade the flooring, opting for a custom laminate that resembles elaborate tiling. Additionally, they removed the garden tub in the master bath and added a wall of cabinetry. The dinning room was transformed into a cozy sitting room for TV viewing. “It’s just Mike and myself living here so we had no need for the dining room. Instead, we have a table and four chairs in the kitchen.”
“These homes are really well built and very tightly insulated, making the utilities that much more affordable. When we took everything into account, we realized there just is no place else like Summerfields West,” she proclaimed. “Our cost of living is also lower because Summerfields West is a land-lease community with no property taxes and a very reasonable property fee that goes to maintaining the property.”
Regina was so impressed with all that Summerfields West has to offer that she has already recommended the community to many people. This includes her daughter-in-law’s grandparents, who bought a Wildflower home design and will be moving to the community soon. “We feel so comfortable here,” said Regina. “The management and everyone involved with this community has been so helpful from day one. We are so thankful that we made the decision to purchase here.”
