Canterbury Village in New Milford NJ is a townhouse development built in the mid 1980’s. It’s build date is 1986 according to the New Jersey MLS. Construction was better, in my view, back then than what you often see today.
There are times when newer isn’t better. This is one of them.
Canterbury Village Is Quieter
Sound is a common complaint I hear about new or newer condo and rental buildings. It seems that recent construction isn’t as quiet as what you get in a Canterbury townhouse. Sellers tell me things like “the walls are paper thin”.
Homeowners at Canterbury Village always make a point of telling me how quiet it is. They say things like “I never hear my neighbor.” Because it is so quiet, I always emphasize this when I show a listing there.
While these are mid range townhouses, you do get some very nice luxury features. Often such features take you well into the upper 500’s. Canterbury Village is a smart purchase because you get all this at a moderate townhouse level.
What is more luxurious than a Master Bedroom with a Private Bath? The Master Bath is good sized with a dramatic soaring ceiling rising to a skylight. Space and storage are more than you’d expect as well. Master Bedrooms are big rooms with 3 large double closets typically.
Most units (except for the few smallest floor plans) have a full sized 2 car attached garage. These are so big that you have room for a good deal of storage. You won’t find that annoying post in the middle either. Garages are wide open space and accommodate modern SUV’s too.
Living rooms have fireplaces. While they were originally wood burning, some owners have converted to gas fueled. Add in a full width terrace you access directly from the living room.
Of course there’s that must have – central air conditioning.
This is not a big complex with only 70 units. There is but 1 road that ends in a cul de sac. Monthly maintenance includes exterior grounds and snow removal. Snow removal is not just street and driveways; walks and steps too. Since there is no pool, maintenance is moderate. My recent listing there had it at $300 per month. Garbage pickup is by the town.
New Milford is a great location. It’s a really nice suburban town with a good school district and convenient to New York City. Across from the entrance is a Post Office. Next to that is a small strip mall with a convenience store. A few minutes north is a larger strip mall with a CVS, the New Milford Deli and Roman Pizza restaurant. Go up some more and you’ll pass a Dunkin Donuts, Burger King and at the north end is a new super ShopRite.
If you’re into wine, Total Wine is 6 minutes away. Do you like ice cream? Brain Freeze has people coming from all over.
From what I can tell, this is a very well managed complex. Every time I’ve called the management company, Arthur Edwards, I’ve had a consistently excellent, professional experience.
21 Canterbury Lane
My listing at 21 Canterbury Ln just sold for $420,000. My website for this townhouse has a 3D Matterport Tour. You’ll be able to walk through the townhouse so you can see what the floor plan really looks like. The pictures I have here are from my listing at 21 Canterbury Lane.
This floor plan has a separate foyer entrance and a sunken living room. Although we had several offers, this took a while to close because of the buyer’s schedule. It worked out well for both sides and that’s what’s important.
Would you like to buy a Canterbury Ln townhouse? Nothing is for sale today but I do know of someone who is thinking of moving later this year. They might move this summer too. It’s a beautiful townhome with a new kitchen and new baths. Call or text me at 201-741-8490.
