PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, June 28, 2009
The Goldenberg Group and Guidi Homes proudly present The Carriage Homes at Haverford Reserve, the Main Line’s finest new residential community. Located at 110 Green Lane, about one quarter mile from the intersection of Darby Road and Parkview Drive in Haverford, PA The Carriage Homes feature 100 beautifully-crafted residences bordering 124 acres of preserved woodlands, mature trees, and beautiful landscaping, with miles of trails and other passive and active recreational facilities.
As a reflection of the quality of the concept, design and development team, Philadelphia Magazine has selected The Carriage Homes at Haverford Reserve to be the Magazine’s 2009 Design Home. The homes will be open for public tours from September 10 through October 11, with all proceeds benefiting Philadelphia’s Ronald McDonald House. In celebration of that honor, the developer is offering extraordinary incentives for agreements of sale signed by July 31, 2009.
“We set out to redefine upscale, Main Line living, infusing luxurious living with nature and natural elements,” said David Mercuris, Vice President of Development for The Goldenberg Group. “We’ve capitalized on a spectacular site – green expanses in close proximity to Center City – to create a sense of community and deliver the best of both worlds to our buyers.”
Located in the heart of the Main Line, The Carriage Homes at Haverford Reserve offer a special quality of life in a village of European styled carriage homes. Set in a serene, park-like setting, the residences are only minutes from the finest shopping, entertainment and dining in the region, with convenient access to world-class cultural and historic offerings in nearby Center City Philadelphia. Recreational and social amenities abound, with some of the region’s finest golf courses and clubs in close proximity to the site.
Inside The Carriage Homes, award-winning design firms Michael Visich Architects and Murphy Architectural Group carried out a vision for six elegant home designs, ranging from 3,300-3,840 square feet. Building on best-in-class structural design, and energy-efficient HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems all residences will feature exquisite interior finishes, spacious master suites, luxurious baths and gourmet kitchens, plus maintenance-free exteriors. Two designs, the Treymore and the Haverlyn, offer master suite down options for convenient one floor living. An extensive list of options will allow purchasers to customize their homes to meet their exacting standards.
“We’re offering purchasers an opportunity to simplify their lifestyle without sacrificing any of the quality, luxury and amenities they’ve grown used to,” continued Mercuris. “All exterior maintenance, including snow removal, irrigation, and landscape maintenance will be handled by the owner’s association, giving our residents much more time to do the things they enjoy with friends and family.”
Haverford Reserve was designed to incorporate the best principles of sustainable design and construction. The Carriage Homes have been designed, and will built in such a way as to reduce negative impacts on the natural environment, reduce waste, improve the built environment and benefit the builder, the homeowner and the general public. In addition, each purchaser will have the ability to add energy efficient systems and components through the sustainability options that will be offered.
“With The Carriage Homes, we’re setting a new standard for Main Line living,” said Brad Guidi, a third generation Guidi family builder. “We’ve worked extremely hard to combine exceptional design, highest-quality construction and sensitive land planning for a residential offering unlike any other in the region.”
