The onset of autumn on Sept. 23 has brought summer-like temperatures and bright sunshine. However, don’t be fooled, colder temperatures are on the horizon and winter is not too far away, beginning on Sunday, Dec. 21. For most homeowners, the fall and winter come with their share of tedious and in some cases back-breaking chores of raking leaves, chipping ice, and shoveling snow. Not so for the residents of Glassbury Court at Cold Spring.
Sales have been hot at the Hudson Valley’s Premiere Active Adult Community (55 years and over) but there are still plenty of housing options to choose from to allow savvy active adult buyers from Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties, tired of the grind of maintaining their oversized and over-taxed properties, to come in from the cold.
Glassbury Court at Cold Spring offers a lifestyle for the active adult and the retiree who desire to live in the finest housing in a community that offers a low-maintenance lifestyle and first-class amenities second to none.
In fact, most of the remaining homes available at Glassbury Court at Cold Spring are situated at prime locations adjacent to the condominium community’s sprawling 40-acre park, giving the homeowner a tranquil and picturesque view, as well as privacy, according to Director of Sales Donna Blais.
Developed by premier Westchester-based builder Wilder Balter Partners, homeowners may choose from a variety of models, all semi-detached, but individually framed that feature master bedrooms on the ground floor. Two ranch and two, two-story models are also available that are designed to easily accommodate an elderly parent or college student.

As we have all seen this past year, the real estate market has taken a turn for the better. Homes are selling once again and we have seen many of our buyers sell their homes in record time. Several of our purchasers recently sold their home on the first day it went on the market. If you are thinking about making a move to a different lifestyle, this may be the time to take action.
Homeowners who live in Glassbury Court enjoyed many hours at the pool this summer (someone else took care of the maintenance of the pool), they enjoyed manicured lawns (someone else did the mowing and fertilizing). They also enjoyed activities and parties at the clubhouse, staying fit by walking and bicycling in the community and the adjacent park and trails. What fun they had exploring the area’s farmers markets, new restaurants and opportunities to experience the many boutiques and local art galleries.
Since the opening of our final phase, sales continue to be brisk. Beautiful home sites adjacent to the park and on a cul-de-sac have just been released for mid to late 2014 move in dates. There are a few homes available for late 2013 completion. If you are seriously considering making your home at Glassbury Court at Cold Spring, now is the time to make it happen. Many times people wait too long and then miss out on a wonderful opportunity, don’t let that happen to you. Come to Glassbury and take another look. See our progress, and if the time is right for you, take the next step to join the homeowners who are so happy they did.
