Like tall ships docked in the harbor, the sleek, new grey blue condominiums at the Dunes in Westhampton Beach are impressive to behold.
And then you open the front door to nine-foot ceilings perfectly framing the main floor’s gleaming hardwood surfaces, sparkling granite counters in the large, open kitchens and wainscoting prevalent even along the sides of the wood built staircases. The five-and-a-half-foot windows are a magnet for the natural light in every room.
These are Timber Ridge Homes, a company committed to providing great places to live on Long Island by building high-quality homes.
Together, managing partners Don Eversoll, Jeff Parsigian and Mark Hamer have over 80 years of land development, home building and commercial real estate and banking experience. Their philosophy is to have “a relationship with our customers born out of integrity and value.”
Once the development is completed in 2014, the 39 homes, clubhouse and pool will be attractive additions to the Westhampton Beach area.
Bill Strittmatter and Debra Binder are the two licensed professionals who work at the site. Strittmatter was there the day I stopped by.
You explained that the condominiums are being built up to the dry walls so that buyers can select their own colors, cabinets and other details. From that point, when will the homes be ready to occupy?
It takes 60 days from the time buyers finalize their selections. This includes final inspections by the town and pre-closing orientation by our customer relations team.
The three models range from 2,077 to 2,186 square feet with an additional 1,000 square feet in the basement. Are people buying them to use as vacation homes as well as full-time residences, and are rentals permitted?
We are seeing both full-time and second home buyers. Rentals are allowed with a minimum lease of 30 days.
What do the monthly fees include?
The monthly fees cover everything outside the home from sprinklers to the fitness center in the clubhouse, to snow removal, plus water usage in the home.
Since you opened the sales office in February, how many homes have been sold and what are the completion dates for the clubhouse and pool?
We have 10 homes in contract with another four pending. The completion date for the clubhouse and pool is June, 2014, which coincides with delivery of eight homes, bringing the community beyond 50% complete.
What else can you tell us about the development?
Besides having a great price point, quality is really what creates the value in these homes. Some of the features included in each of the three-bedroom and two full bath homes are box ceilings and walk-in closets in the master bedroom with beautiful wall-to-wall carpeting and six-pound pads decorating the flooring in each bedroom as well as the second floor hallway.
Generously sized bathrooms include ceramic tile floors and ceramic tile shower surrounds, granite countertops, undermount sinks and oversized mirrors. And the laundry room is conveniently located on the second floor. Granite counter tops and backsplash, 42” raised panel maple cabinets and KitchenAid appliances are attractively featured in the hardwood floored open kitchens. Lovely front porches and rear paver patios, which are situated near beautiful landscaping, create a serene atmosphere.
