The redefined notion of live/work in today’s new business climate has given rise to the popularity of the single-family attached homes at East Gate, the upscale residential community in storied Fort Monmouth. The two-story residences are drawing interest from younger couples and families impressed by expansive spaces indoor and out, and appreciative of the extra leisure time afforded by the neighborhood’s maintenance-free lifestyle. Priced from $679,990, the threebedroom homes boast uniquely wide floor plans with 2.5 baths, spacious dining/living room with fireplace, open concept kitchen, expansive master bedroom suite with lavish master bath and sitting room and den.
Crown molding can be found throughout the main living level and hardwood flooring is included on both the first and second floors. Outside, each home has a private patio to fully enjoy the tranquil and scenic natural Fort Monmouth surroundings.
Spacious and stylish layouts that provide an abundance of room to grow are not the only attributes attracting young buyers to the single-family attached homes at East Gate. There is also the affordable cost of ownership created by today’s low interest rates, low monthly maintenance fees and property taxes that are considered reasonable, especially when factoring in the neighborhood is served by the award-winning Oceanport school district.
The single-family attached residences offer Immediate Occupancy, meaning buyers who act quickly can close on a home in time for the upcoming academic year.
Commutability has also played a role in East Gate’s appeal to working families, according to CB New Homes of Madison, NJ, the community’s exclusive marketing and sales agent. Easily accessible are NJ Transit’s Little Silver Train Station, located two miles away, and express ferry service, both of which provide fast service to Manhattan.
“The single-family attached residences have been in high demand as of late, especially with a reliance on remote working expected to remain prevalent,” says Michael Hong, vice president of Development for RPM Development Group, which has created East Gate in fully-restored century-old Officer’s Housing at the former army post in Oceanport, NJ. “These are expansive floor plans with open interiors perfectly suited for a family, and bonus den that can also be used as an office. Each home has private outdoor space, and quick access to shared open areas that include a walking trail, expansive parade grounds and the East Gate Park. For those who may be asked to visit employment centers, mass transportation is in close proximity, whisking commuters into New York City.”
Some of the available single-family attached homes are located within Officer’s Row, the final housing phase at East Gate.
Aptly named after its former purpose as residences for high ranking officers stationed on Fort Monmouth, homes in Officer’s Row are situated in some of most desirable community locations with scenic water views of Parker’s Creek. These residences are priced from the upper $700,000s. Palermo Edwards Architecture has remodeled century-old Officer’s Housing buildings on the 1,126acre former U.S. Army post into homes that blend early 20th century style with modern interiors.
The well-appointed floor plans offer luxury kitchens with granite or quartz countertops, stainless-steel Kohler fixtures and GE appliance packages; and master-bathroom suites with double vanity countertops, Moen Eva faucets and showers with built-in benches and semi-frameless shower doors. These contemporary floor plans are complemented by notable brick exteriors.
