Developer Phil Pine, of Laurel Ridge Development, LLC, is building 10 new townhomes, Lakeside at Laurel Ridge, the final phase which will be available for occupancy Spring 2021;
These are spacious 3 bedroom, two and half bath homes, 2,900 to 3,200 square feet, with fully finished, walk-out basements, and the option of having an elevator. The homes boast large family rooms, state-of-the-art kitchens, gracious master suites with sitting area and marble tiled bathroom, a separate home office…and attached garage. High-end finishes, high ceilings, quality windows, wide hallways, and ample lighting make these townhomes feel like a home.
Ownership at Lakeside includes full access to the recreational facilities, including swimming pools, walking paths, and tennis courts.
It’s called ‘Lakeside’, because many of these homes enjoy a spectacular water view!
Location being central to real estate, living in Lakeside at Laurel Ridge offers: walking-distance access to convenient shopping at The Commons of Vista, including a gourmet market, pharmacy, nail salon, dry cleaner, wine and liquor store, craft beer store, pizza, Chinese restaurant, dentist, fitness center, child care center, and holistic veterinarian.
The community is located minutes from each of nearby New Canaan, Pound Ridge, Bedford and Ridgefield, and; resides within the prestigious Katonah-Lewisboro School District and the John Jay High School.
A couple in their 50s, who own a retail store in New Canaan and purchased in Laurel Ridge shared, “We need to live reasonably close to the shop, so we looked in New Canaan and couldn’t find anything affordable or that didn’t feel a bit too urban and a lot too cramped.
We were thrilled to find Laurel Ridge, just over the State border, and less than a ten minute drive to work. We can comfortably accommodate our family and friends when they visit.”
A recent divorcee whose youngest son was already in the Katonah-Lewisboro system and just starting at John Jay High School this past fall declares
“I needed to find something in the school district and really didn’t want to feel like we were moving into an apartment or out of the area. Laurel Ridge is perfect. It feels like a home in every way.
I had to downsize from the big house we used to live in, but I don’t feel like I’ve sacrificed anything. Every day I look around at the view, and at the quality of construction and finishes inside, and I have a feeling of total luxury,comfort and safety. And I’m still close to my family in Westchester and only 20 minutes door-to-door to where I work in Westport.”
A young couple moving up from Brooklyn with two little kids, who also purchased in Laurel Ridge last summer explained
“We were desperate to get out of our cramped apartment and move to a place where we can raise our family – and Covid was the last straw. We weren’t quite ready to purchase a single family home and take on that kind of expense and responsibility, but we wanted the kind of community and surroundings that you can only get in a leafy suburb. Laurel Ridge is the perfect home for our young family.”
Forget about lawn care, dealing with home maintenance or building plumbers, electricians and carpenters, or shoveling snow. No need to be concerned when components of the home such as the roof, gutters and leaders, or siding require maintenance or will ultimately need to be replaced. With HOA fees less than $360 per month, you can enjoy a low maintenance lifestyle for the fraction of the cost of carrying a single family home. And, condominium townhome ownership means substantially lower taxes than the single family equivalent. The average property tax at Laurel Ridge is less than $8,200. The 2020 basic STAR exemption for Lewisboro is about $1,740, effectively bringing total taxes to just over $6,000.
