“These homes offer an exceptional opportunity to own a home by the renowned talents of Michael Menza and Howard Beissel, whose names are synonymous with luxury new homes of enduring style and value,” explains Coldwell Banker New Homes Vice President David Schoner. “For more than 20 years, they have been providing new home buyers with the traditions of a finely crafted home from the meticulous design to the invisible construction systems through to the signature hand crafted mill work, dramatic architecture, and brand name amenities. This newest collection combines their love for finely crafted homes with one of the most sought after locations in the state.”
New Homes Associate Carolann Clynes of Coldwell Banker in Summit agrees. “Menza & Beissel have chosen one of the most exceptional towns to create this collection of new homes. Summit enjoys the perfect blend of old world estate homes and new homes as well as lovely townhomes and condominiums within minutes of the downtown and direct trains to NYC. There is a thriving downtown area within walking distance to many homes so residents can enjoy boutique shopping, elegant dining and entertainment for all ages. Yet, all of this charm is just minutes away from Manhattan, Uptown and Wall Street, and Newark Liberty International Airport.”
She adds, “Many families choose Summit for its highly rated schools, parks and recreation for children of all ages.”
Within this idyllic town, Menza & Beissel are once again creating new homes of enduring value. Clynes describes, “The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath home underway for quick delivery perfectly illustrates the fine craftsmanship and luxuriously detailed space that Menza & Beissel is known for - with beautiful moldings and custom trim, hardwood floors and recessed lighting throughout. The classic porch and entry door with transom and sidelights are ideal to invite guests into the large open foyer. Entertaining will be elegant and easy in the formal living and dining rooms adorned with custom features and beautiful traditional-
The heart of the home is the expansive family room with fireplace and the custom designed center island kitchen with furniture grade cabinetry, granite countertops and European stainless steel appliances. A formal butler’s pantry with built-in cabinetry provides convenient set up, storage, and serving space when entertaining.
Other features of the first level include a mud room with built-in bench, closet and access to the attached garage. “This home uniquely offers an additional but detached one-car garage which is designed like a carriage house,” notes Clynes. “Its upper storage loft would be a perfect space for backyard tools and gardening equipment.”
Upstairs, owners will enjoy their own relaxing bedroom suite with decorative tray ceiling, walk-in closet and spa-inspired tiled bath. Three additional bedrooms, Jack and Jill tiled bath and additional full tiled bath complete the upper level.
Clynes adds, “This home and the other homes in the Franklin Collection are complete with a finished lower level and full bath. Owners can turn this space into a wonderful recreation area, home office, playroom or whatever they desire.”
