Cranbury Brook Homes & Real Estate

Construction began in 2005 and now encompasses 195 residences. Buyers can choose from two options: Villas, which are free-standing single-family homes, or luxury condominiums in a three-story elevator building called The Highlands at Cranbury Brook. The luxury condominiums are mostly two bedroom and two baths units, but a few one bedroom models were built as well. One model also features a den. Sizes of the condos range from 825 to 1,441 square feet. The maintenance fee for these condos include heat, water, sewer, garbage pickup, maintenance of common grounds, and full use of all facilities.

The villas come in four basic floor plans, but since they are each available with six different exterior elevation choices, each home is still different from the next. These homes range in size from 1,656 to 2,670 square feet and feature traditional architecture. The villas may be two bedroom ranch homes or three bedroom homes with lofts. One of the villa floor plans is a traditional farmhouse style with covered front porch. Other homes have courtyard entries with side-load garages. Some of the villas have great rooms, while others have formal living rooms and dining rooms with accent columns. The large master bedrooms have spacious walk-in closets and coffered ceilings. All homes have ten-foot ceilings throughout the first floor, gourmet kitchens with desirable Corian or granite counter tops, and lavish master baths as well as custom features such as bookcases, skylights, fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, covered porches, and sunrooms.

    I don't like to drive very much so the location of Cranbury Brook is nice for me. It's close to everything so getting around is easy without having to venture too far from home. I have a condo and everything is taken care of so I don't have to worry about maintaining things. The clubhouse is small but nice and well maintained.
