WEST ORANGE, N.J. – Luxury is a pillar of the lifestyle residents of Vizcaya lead year-round, but the summer is when the resort-like character of the community truly shines. Whether it is the opening of the outdoor pool and sun deck, doubles matches on the tennis court or the numerous tee times available at nearby golf courses, there is something for every resident to enjoy.
Many Vizcaya homeowners are experiencing the warm-weather amenities for the first time, thanks to strong sales at the beginning of the year. They’re finding the pool and the grand terrace are major activity hubs. Both offer elegant, casual seating areas and sweeping views of the surrounding tree-lined mountains. The pool’s temperate waters are inviting and the collection of lounge chairs is convenient for sunbathing. The terrace, arranged like the grand porch of a Napa Valley chateau, is a charming setting for reading, sipping afternoon tea or sharing cocktails and pleasant conversation with guests.
“There is so much to do at Vizcaya at this time of year and it’s all just a few steps from residents’ front doors,” said Lisa Macchi, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Millennium Homes. “The community is truly operating at its full potential after Memorial Day, with tennis, walking trails, an outdoor pool, an indoor pool and all of the other amenities and services Vizcaya is known for. New residents tell us they feel like they are on one long extravagant vacation that lasts all summer, but they are lucky enough to be close to family and friends here in New Jersey.”
