Nov. 8, 2012 - PRLog -- STAMFORD (Nov. 8, 2012) – Palmer Hill, Stamford’s premier luxury residential community, was recently honored with the prestigious HOBI awards in three categories: Best Clubhouse, Best Townhome and Best Luxury Townhome. The HOBI awards reinforce the recent success of the gated community which has enjoyed more than $60 million in sales over the past 24 months, making it the top-selling new home community in Connecticut.

The HOBI Awards are Connecticut’s most prestigious housing industry awards. Winners are selected by a panel of HOBI judges with expertise in home building.

“Receiving the HOBI awards in three distinct categories is a great honor and a testament to the quality and value of Palmer Hill,” says Bill McGuinness, principal of Palmer Hill Partners. “We are particularly pleased that the judges recognized our clubhouse and amenities as being the best in the market.  The opportunity to create a sizable planned community at such a great location within lower Fairfield County has been an exciting challenge.”

To date, over 145 of the 195 homes at Palmer Hill are sold and more than 125 homes completed and occupied.  The developers expect to finish construction over the next 18 months.

“We are nearing completion of our final garden-style condominium building and have only 4 homes available for sale in the building.  The remaining phases of construction will be exclusively townhomes, so this is the ‘last call’ for those looking to purchase the garden-style single floor designs,” says Bob Dale, principal of Palmer Hill Partners.

Ideally situated in the heart of lower Fairfield County, where Old Greenwich meets Stamford, Palmer Hill is an award-winning gated community set on nearly 20 acres of park-like landscaped grounds and conservation areas and is designed in the traditional architectural style of coastal New England. The private, gated community features 195 residences, including 114 townhomes and 81 garden-style condominium residences offering a full-range of buyer selected finishes.  Each home has its own private outdoor space including patios, terraces and/or balconies.  

The remaining two bedroom garden-style condominium homes include the Aspen at 1,205 square feet and priced from the mid-$500,000s, and the Birch at 1,400 square feet and priced in the upper-600s.  The condominium buildings are designed in traditional shingle-style architecture with dramatic rooflines, brick chimneys and other elegant details, set on a centrally located landscaped courtyard. Garage parking for two cars is available to each condominium resident, along with direct elevator access from the parking garage to each residential floor.

The three-bedroom townhomes feature New England cottage-style architecture, with clapboard siding, large flagstone porches and patios, brick chimney pots and window boxes. The townhomes range in square footage from 2,080 to over 3,400 square feet including optional entertainment levels, and select models offer first-floor master bedroom suites.  The townhomes are priced from the mid-700s to over $1 million.

The community amenities at Palmer Hill include a dramatic 3,500-square-foot community clubhouse with a resort-style swimming pool, spa hot tub and outdoor fire pit. French doors lead from the pool terrace into the well-appointed clubroom which offers a catering kitchen, flat-screen television, fireplace and luxurious furnishings. Palmer Hill’s fitness center features state-of-the-art equipment and flat-screen televisions, and a yoga studio with hardwood floors, mirrored walls and ballet bar. A business center is available to residents as well, complete with wireless Internet access, conference table and computer kiosks.  Renowned designer Lynn Morgan has decorated the model homes and clubhouse.
