East Gate in historic Fort Monmouth is set to spread holiday cheer with a special Open House event to be held on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 12 and 13. Developer RPM Development Group and CB New Homes, the exclusive marketing and sales agent for the upscale residential community, are inviting the public to “make their spirits bright” and stroll through a neighborhood of festively-decorated homes in Officer’s Row, an acclaimed collection of century-old residences that once housed high ranking officers at the 1,126-acre former U.S. Army post in Oceanport, NJ.
The event will take place from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. and enable attendees to view homes adorned with holiday decorations inside and out. What’s more, hot cocoa will be served as guests take in the majesty and natural beauty of Parkers Creek, a picturesque waterway bordering East Gate, from the warmth of a fire pit in the expansive rear patio of the magnificently merchandised model home. Social distancing guidelines and protocols will be in place to ensure guests can safely enjoy the event.
Highlighted during the Open House will be the perfectly preserved single-family attached homes at East Gate. Less than ten of these ultra-luxurious threebedroom residences remain available for sale at the community, priced from the $700,000s.
The single-family attached homes boast Federal-style red brick exteriors that date back to the early 1900s, a time when building strength and fine craftsmanship were the norm.
Situated on some of the most desirable community locations, the residences offer over 2,500 square feet of living space complimented by expansive yards, large rear patios and vistas of Parker’s Creek, a natural waterway bordering the community. Further amplifying the attraction is the unique opportunity to receive a newly built home in a neighborhood that’s already well-established with 85% of residences occupied.
The single-family attached homes are move-in ready and boast uniquely wide floorplans that feel and live like expansive single-family homes inside and out, without the hassle and headaches of tiresome maintenance.
The floorplans offer 2.5 baths, dining/living room, open concept kitchen, expansive master bedroom suite with lavish master bath and sitting room and den that makes for the perfect home office that everyone wants and needs in today’s business climate.
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 large patio to fully enjoy Fort Monmouth’s natural surroundings that are both tranquil and scenic.
East Gate has had significant appeal to buyers scaling down from single-family homes but still seeking residences with spacious and comfortable interiors, roomy, private outdoor areas, and appreciative of the extra leisure time afforded by the neighborhood’s maintenance-free lifestyle.
They’re also quick to take advantage of an extremely affordable cost of ownership created by today’s low interest rates, low monthly maintenance fees and property taxes that are reasonable.
Commutability has also played a significant role in East Gate’s appeal. The community is easily accessible to New Jersey Transit’s Little Silver Train Station, located just two miles away, and express ferry service, both of which provide fast service to Manhattan.
Residents at East Gate enjoy being part of the Jersey Shore’s premier live/play community.
An abundance of amenities and services are nearby, including Suneagles Golf Club’s 18-hole golf course, the Marina at Oceanport, parade grounds, open space and walking and biking trails and kayaking around Parker’s Creek. There’s also East Gate Park, a one-acre outdoor space featuring a monument paying homage to Fort Monmouth’s storied past, pedestrian pathways, benches, lawns, seasonal flowers and shrubbery and a modernized lightning/lantern package East Gate itself is situated just minutes from popular New Jersey beaches and the banks of the Shrewsbury River, and is in proximity to the entertainment, dining and culture of Red Bank and Asbury Park. Major highways, including Routes 35, 36, 18 and the Garden State Parkway, are also nearby.
