Villagio is an extraordinary 55+ community in Monmouth Junction, New Jersey located just off Route 1 North in Middlesex County. Flowering ornamental urns and cobblestone curbs line the streets of this Italian-themed community which was built by Byron Hill to look like a village set on the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside. Scenic paths wind through the area, and lots of open green spaces and a large pond along the main street create a relaxing ambiance. In 2014, Lennar took over the community and began offering four unique floor plans.
Upon completion, Villagio at Monmouth Junction will feature a total of 210 upscale single-family residences. Since homestyles are individually tailored to their surroundings and buyers are able to customize, each residence has its own unique, yet luxurious style. Residents will also find everything they need or want for daily life within a short distance of the community. This desirable community is age-restricted and requires at least one occupant to be 55 or better and no one under the age of 19 may reside in the home on a permanent basis.
The 7,000 square-foot clubhouse provides the perfect setting for health, wellness, and social activities. Club Verona offers plenty of gathering places to reflect a richly satisfying resort lifestyle. A full range of fitness facilities are in the planning stage. Outdoor amenities include bocce, tennis courts, a putting green, and an outdoor pool. The grounds at Club Verona also contain a pond traversed by a pedestrian bridge, an amphitheater, and a central piazza with fountain border. There are jogging, walking and biking trails that residents can take advantage of.
