First-Time parents choose Georgetown Mews

(Deptford, N.J.) Ashley and Albert Novelli started looking for a home when they were expecting their first child. They wanted a low-maintenance residence large enough to accommodate a growing family, and a location near work and their families. With help from their mothers, each of whom is a realtor, the couple looked at communities throughout Sicklerville, Deptford and the surrounding south Jersey area. It wasn’t until they saw Georgetown Mews, Fernmoor’s luxury townhome community in Deptford Twp., N.J., that they knew they had “come home.”

“I knew the minute that I saw the community that this was the one,” said Ashley. “Other communities had homes that looked very similar to each other, and that was boring. The homes at Georgetown Mews are so pretty with different exteriors. Some of the designs have brick; others have little bump-outs or shutters. It looks and feels like a real neighborhood.”

In addition, the home designs incorporated everything on the Novelli’s ‘wish list.’ “We wanted three bedrooms,” explained Ashley, “because as we continue to grow our family, we didn’t want to have to move again.” She and her husband also appreciated the basement. “We wanted some place to put all of her stuff,” she said, referring to now seven-month-old Lilliana.

“We also liked that the deck was included. This was a tremendous value. Other homebuilders were charging a lot of money to add a deck. The combination of home design, price and location sold us on Georgetown Mews.”

“We wanted to create a product that would virtually sell itself because of its incredible value,” said Director of Sales and Marketing Carol Smith-Gephart. “We’re very proud of this community, which would make a wonderful home for young professionals or families as well as empty nesters or anyone else seeking an extraordinary value in this market. Georgetown Mews offers it all—luxury and location at an affordable price.”

Georgetown Mews features three-story townhomes with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 to 3.5 baths, garage and nearly 2,000 sq. ft. of living space. Homebuyers may choose between five different home designs, some with a den, ground floor bedroom or finished recreation room. Features that come standard include nine-foot main floor ceilings, spacious kitchens featuring 42” maple kitchen cabinets, gas range, dishwasher and microwave. Also included are satin nickel finish decorator light fixtures, ceramic tile flooring and cultured marble vanity tops in the owner’s bath and hall bath, and carpet in the living and dining rooms, family room, hallways and bedrooms.  A programmable thermostat and energy efficient gas furnace help deliver energy efficiency.

A Location That’s in the Center of It All

The right location was important for the Novellis, who wanted to be close to work and family. “We’re now 15 minutes from my family in Blackwood and 15 minutes over the bridge to Philadelphia,” said Ashley. “It couldn’t be a better location.”

Georgetown Mews is a commuter’s dream, located in Deptford close to Routes 55, 42, 295, and the NJ Turnpike. It’s just 25 minutes by car to Philadelphia and a short drive to locations throughout southern New Jersey and Delaware.

“The location is great,” said Ashley. “We’re close to everything. It’s just a short drive to the Winona Lakes playground, the grocery store and the stores along Route 45, not to mention the great shopping in Deptford.” Residents enjoy Deptford’s thriving business community, including plenty of local restaurants and pubs, shopping malls and mom-and-pop shops. For outdoor enthusiasts, there are numerous parks and youth recreation facilities. Students attend any of seven elementary schools, the Monongahela Middle School and Deptford High School.
