Enclave at Shackamaxon
Pennsylvania’s historic Union County is a mecca thanks to the distinction of its residential offerings, close proximity to urban centers and community assets such as the Shaxamaxon Country Club, noted for its world-class golf course. Active adults seek homes here when they downsize because they want it all—from location and amenities to high quality, elegantly classical housing that addresses their changing lifestyles.
The Enclave at Shackamaxon offers residents 55 and older all of these requisites. This planned community by Toll Brothers Active Living fulfills the most coveted provision in the real estate world—location, location, location—on a prime site near downtown Westfield and Scotch Plains, which both offer convenient access to nearby Philadelphia and New York. Additionally it’s right on the grounds of the development’s namesake club. Residences sport patrician architectural detailing and contemporary floor plans rich with open, airy, flexible spaces to play to the community’s exclusive nature, storied architectural legacy, lush grounds and the wants and needs of active adults.
Since style is a highly personal matter, MCA’s mandate was to develop model home interiors that would showcase possibilities for traditionalists as well as residents with more contemporary taste. While both models have similar architectural attributes—two-story, interconnected formal living and dining rooms, vaulted ceilings in the family gathering spaces, state-of-the-art kitchens, first-floor master suites and flex-space for special needs—their decorative aesthetics appeal to different types of buyers. With its stately furnishings that embrace neo-classical styling and richly layered palette of patterns and textures, the Strathmere evokes the elegant, history-laden past. In contrast, sleeker furnishings with a 20th century demeanor and a monochromatic palette give the Bucknell a fresh, sleek demeanor that speaks to today.
