Vibrant Living Environment at The M at Englewood South has Homeowners Feeling Lucky this St. Patrick’s Day

M-Entrance 2MBENGLEWOOD, NJ – Homeowners at The M at Englewood South have much to feel lucky about this St. Patrick’s Day, topped by owning an upscale condominium in a vibrant environment that conveys the charm and ease of an urban center.

Situated just minutes from the everyday services and exciting shopping, entertainment and dining of downtown Englewood, the 125-home neighborhood has quickly become one of Bergen County’s most popular residential destinations for young couples and single-professionals seeking affordability and access to many lifestyle components.  John Kelly, a former renter who purchased at The M at Englewood South, exemplifies how the community appeals to the first-time buyer looking for a high level of convenience.

“The M provides a great location,” he says.  “We’re in close proximity to downtown Englewood, Paramus, the shopping and services of Bergen County, New York City, as well as all major highways.”

Two well-known restaurants — Panera Bread and Anthony’s Coal Fire Pizza – lie near the community’s entrance on Route 4.  Two miles away, downtown Englewood offers more than 300 stores and restaurants.   Its bustling streets blend historic storefronts with modern buildings and retail outlets, including Shop Rite, Capital One Bank, Chipotle, Victoria’s Secret, Group USA, The Children’s Place, and eateries such as Cassies, La Cumbia and 50’s era Baumgart’s cafe.  It’s also home to the Bergen Performing Arts Center, where an extensive list of popular musicians and performers take the stage every year.

For Cecilia Liu, a homeowner who moved to The M at Englewood South from nearby Ft. Lee, the easy access to the wealth of shops and cultural and entertainment opportunities she was accustomed to was a big draw.

“I’m not only close to New York City, but I’m also right by the many shops on Routes 4 and 17,” she said.  “Additionally, I can easily access many of the restaurants and cultural venues I’ve grown to love, including dining in downtown Englewood or shows at the nearby Bergen PAC.”

Many of the homebuyers at The M at Englewood South are young professionals who work in Manhattan, making its location less than 4 miles to the George Washington Bridge a perfect fit.   The M provides a shuttle service to the nearby NJ Transit bus stop with service into New York City.

“I love the fact there’s such easy access to New York City, especially considering I still commute to Midtown daily,” commented Bryan Forbes, who escaped New York City’s skyrocketing apartment pricing and purchased at The M.

The community itself provides all the attributes that today’s young homebuyer desires.  With on-site social and recreational amenities and a maintenance-free environment, there’s plenty of time for residents to enjoy leisure activities.

For Lauren DeMarco, who moved up at The M from a West New York apartment, the amenities are a great complement to the brand new condominiums at the community.  “I love the parking, elevator and pool,” she says. “The fact that cable and Internet are included in my considerably low maintenance fee is a significant factor. It’s perfect for my lifestyle.”

Ms. DeMarco is not the only homeowner who has fallen in love with the resort-inspired pool and sundeck at The M at Englewood South.  Opening Memorial Day weekend, the outdoor amenity has unquestionably cemented its status as a social center with scores of residents gathering to unwind and socialize during summer months.  There’s also a resident’s clubroom with catering kitchen for large parties and entertaining.  What’s more, residents receive a one year membership at The Gym, a 40,000 SF state-of-the-art fitness center located at 20 Nordhoff Place.

While lifestyle and location are major reasons for purchasing at The M at Englewood South, the driving force behind the sales success is its luxury homes and outstanding pricing.  Two-bedroom condominiums at The M at Englewood South start from the mid-$400,000s.  Adding to the community’s affordability are special limited-time incentives that provide $20,000 off the price of a two-bedroom residence.  There’s also an innovative 97% financing program that creates a low initial down payment.

Residences range in size from 755 to 1,499 square feet and feature an open living space, sumptuous bedrooms, state-of-the-art kitchens with maple cabinetry, under-counter lighting and granite countertops, large laundry areas with side-by-side General Electric washers and dryers, and large walk-in closets. There is also oak hardwood flooring throughout the living area and ceramic tile flooring in the entry hall and kitchen. A parking space in The M’s enclosed garage is included in the purchase price.

“These are open and functional floorplans that provide plenty of living space and appeal to a wide range of buyers, whether it’s a young couple purchasing their first home or an empty-nester looking to scale down from a single-family residence,” says Elli Kim, Sales Representative for The Marketing Directors, exclusive marketing and sales agent at The M at Englewood South.

The M at Englewood South is located at 1104 Riverview Avenue. For more information and to view new fully-furnished model homes, visit or call 201-982-7306.

The Home of Designer Finn Juhl

2017-02-15_14-10-49I’ve always been fascinated by the homes of the designers who created the furniture that we love, and one of the most fascinating is the home of Danish designer Finn Juhl. Although his designs aren’t nearly as well-known as those of Charles and Ray Eames, his home is even more widely publicized, perhaps owing to its timeless minimalism, and to the lovely, intentional way he set pieces into the space, letting his furniture, and the way it was grouped together, inform the shape of the house itself.

5 easy DIY projects to tackle this winter

2017-02-06_11-50-34The winter months are the perfect time to dig in and tackle easy DIY projects for an updated home you’ll enjoy all year long. These five simple home improvement projects are incredibly easy, affordable and can be completed in three hours or less.

Marvelous mirrors

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, you’re looking a little shabby. Mirrors are timeless decor options, but the frames can look dated over time. Breathe new life into an old mirror by painting the frame a rich, modern color that pops within the current color scheme. Another idea is to clean the frame and adhere mosaic tiles along the edge for a crafty, custom look.

Handsome hardware

Old hardware makes any room look like a relic of yesteryear. A complete replacement can be costly, so instead opt to paint existing hardware. Simply remove and clean to eliminate grime. Then use one of 11 colors of Krylon(R) Premium Metallic, like Pewter Gray or White Copper, to create a lustrous, high-gloss metallic finish in just a few coats. A tip for painting hardware is to use an old egg carton. Turn the egg carton upside down, secure the hardware to the egg cups and spray away!
