The historic, bucolic town of Bernardsville is the site for a new concept in luxury living at The Heritage at Claremont. Being developed in a quiet neighborhood of rolling hills, The Heritage offers 20 exceptional residences in a beautiful park-like setting.
At The Heritage, those who no longer want the burden of maintenance of a large house and property will find gracious living in a peaceful and secure estate setting.
As its name suggests, The Heritage is steeped in the history of the affluent Bernardsville Mountain community, which evolved in the early 20th century when captains of industry and finance built mansions to escape the hot New York City summers.
Bernardsville’s landmark parish house, designed in 1912 by the noted architect Henry Janeway Hardenbergh, has been reimagined as a luxury residential structure—The Great Hall—which will accommodate four of The Heritage homes. He was the visionary behind architectural masterpieces up and down the east coast, including New York City’s Plaza and Waldorf Astoria Hotels as well as The Dakota, famously home to John Lennon.
Hardenbergh lived in Bernardsville, where he built a grand summer home for himself and his family – this history and his famed architecture are visible in the luxury offered by The Heritage’s residences.
Also available at The Heritage are sixteen residences at The Collection, featuring the highest quality construction in open-concept floor plans.
Envisioned and executed over a number of years, The Heritage brings together a team of experts in the concept of luxury-home building. With decades of experience in high-end home construction, noted architect Jeffrey Beer was the mastermind behind the design of The Great Hall and The Collection. Working with project advisor Daniel Lincoln, known for his work in historic preservation, Beer has deftly harmonized the old with the new at The Heritage.
The end result is residences that respect the architectural legacy of the site, while offering the ultimate in modern, elegant living.
Also a key player in the realization of The Heritage are the project builders, NGC Development, known for their professionalism and high level of workmanship in a wide range of residential and infrastructure projects. The lovely grounds surrounding the homes have been designed and engineered by the well-known firm Gladstone Design in association with Bosenberg Landscape Architecture, who are adept at integrating natural and manmade environments.
Incorporating slate roofs, locally quarried fieldstone, and stucco enhancements, the twenty Heritage residences range from one to three bedrooms, up to three and a half baths, and interior square footage of up to 2800+. Each home has a terrace and/or patio, enclosed secure garage parking and storage, high-tech security, and a jewelry safe. Kitchens feature designer appliances, granite counters, and furniture-quality cabinetry, while master bathrooms offer radiant heating, granite topped vanities, and designer fixtures.
The construction and design of the residences showcases superior high-performance energy efficiency, including heating and cooling systems and sound insulation.
Firm pre-construction sales are already in place, with owners now customizing their homes.
NGC Development offers buyers a rare opportunity to customize their home with the aid of architects and designers. On offer is a broad choice of interior elements such as flooring, lighting, bathroom and kitchen finishing selections and color palette. A model home will be available to view beginning in mid-September.
The charming town of Bernardsville has much to offer its residents, including fine dining, a wide range of shops, and highly rated public and private schools. For health, there are yoga and fitness studios, a broad selection of doctors and medical facilities, and excellent hospitals within twenty minutes’ drive. The Bernardsville train station connects to Manhattan, while major highways are close.
The surrounding county is famous for its equestrian facilities, including the US Equestrian Team Foundation headquarters and training facilities. For golf lovers, there is no shortage of options, with many public and private courses in the area, including hosts to major national championships.
The Heritage offers home buyers the truly unique opportunity to live in an upscale worry-free environment, personalizing your beautiful home to your specifications.
