“Patrick grew up here, so when we decided to move out of our cramped, older apartment in Jersey City, this area was a natural choice,” explains Kimberly. “However, all we saw were older homes which needed a lot of work. We were tired of the old homes like our apartment and wanted something new. That’s when his parents told us about Coddington Hill.”
Patrick adds, “We were very excited about the community, the amount of space in the homes, and luxury features included for the price. Nothing older could compare and nothing new could match the value.”
The Costas chose a three bedroom Ashford model with full basement, conservatory option and traditional exterior with covered entry. “We loved the flow of the home beginning with its two-story entry foyer and large dining room,” explained Kimberly. “My favorite area is the center island kitchen with plenty of wood cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen opens to a nice breakfast area and the family room, which is where we plan to spend most of our time.”
Since Kimberly owns a graphic design company, the couple added a conservatory off the family room to use as a home office. Kimberly adds, “We don’t use a formal living room, so that space will become Patrick’s study.”
Other features of the first floor which the Costas adore include a large laundry room with closet and sink, hardwood floors, powder room, and access to the two-car garage.
Upstairs, the Costas fell in love with their master bedroom suite. “The walk-in closet is amazing,” describes Kimberly. “It’s so nice to be able to see all of our clothes. And I love the tiled bath with two vanities, a soaking tub and glass enclosed shower stall. It’s all so spacious.”
John Patrick also adores his own bedroom and with a new baby on the way, the third bedroom will soon become a nursery.
While the full basement is currently unfinished, the Costas plan to eventually covert that space into an art studio and family recreation area.
Their new home at Coddington Hill is complete with its exceptional location in Howell Township in Monmouth County, NJ. “Patrick takes the bus into Jersey City for work and we know families who take the ferry or train into NYC,” explains Kimberly. “It is that easy. We also love the conveniences here. There are plenty of shopping choices and, of course, the recreation including parks, country clubs, lakes and the Jersey Shore. We are also pleased that this area has top rated schools, perfect for our children.”
Site Manager Lisa Angelicola of Coldwell Banker in Howell agrees and points out, “Routes 9, 34, 35, Interstate 195 and the Garden State Parkway provide access to just about anywhere in the state.”
Coddington Hill is by the award winning talents of builder Tim Jones of TJC Communities. “We cannot say enough great things about the builder and his team of experts,” states Patrick. “They worked hand in hand with us on every detail down to the placement of the light switches. They made our home buying experience a fantastic one.” TJC Communities takes pride in creating homes of lasting value and includes as standard top notch construction materials, energy efficient amenities and brand name features.
