BARNEGAT, NJ – After growing up together in Staten Island, sisters Marilyn and Barbara have been inseparable. From New York to the Carolinas, they’ve always ended up close to one another. But after spending the last five years sharing a home down south, Marilyn and Barbara yearned for something more. That’s when they decided to move back to the New Jersey area. An online search eventually led them to Escape Ocean Breeze, an active adult community in Manahawkin by Paramount Homes.
“We looked around at other communities for quite a while, but they were all just ordinary,” Barbara and Marilyn agreed. “At Escapes, the homes and the community are designed beautifully and the people here are very nice. Also, with the help of Deb in the Sales Office, we were able to build two new homes right next to each other. It was meant to be.”
Barbara and her husband, Bill, selected the single-level, two-bedroom, two-bathroom Valencia home design. “We opted for an extended great room,” Barbara said. “With the extension, the home has about 2,349 sq. ft. of space, which is perfect for when my two daughters visit.”
Marilyn selected the single-level, two-bedroom, two-bathroom Andalucia model. The home is perfect for entertaining with its magnificent great room and optional sunroom or covered porch. The sisters just completed their second walk-throughs and are expected to move in to their new homes by late Spring.
Located near Long Beach Island’s scenic beaches, eclectic shopping and lively dining, Escapes Ocean Breeze provides residents the chance to enjoy the Jersey Shore experience with their families and friends. And, even closer to home, the community offers resort-style amenities.
The clubhouse, the social hub of Escapes Ocean Breeze, features a grand salon, billiards room, card rooms, screening room, library and state-of-the-art fitness center. Residents also enjoy tennis, basketball, volleyball and bocce courts, as well as landscaped walking paths. The community has a full-time Lifestyle Director who brings neighbors together through bus trips, farmers’ markets, poolside concerts and movie nights.
“We are really excited about attending the social events at the clubhouse and meeting new friends,” said Barbara. “And we are thrilled to use the onsite amenities, like the indoor and outdoor pool. We just can’t wait to start this new phase of our lives at Escapes.”
The homes at Escapes Ocean Breeze offer up to 2,693 square feet of living space including two bedrooms, two baths and two-car garages. Pricing begins in the low $300s.
