The Washington Township slogan – “A Great Place to Live, Work & Raise a Family”. We couldn’t agree more with this statement!

Paparone is currently building brand new homes in Washington Township, at Deerfield on Doe Court. Located off Hurffville-Cross Keys Road, Deerfield is an established cul-de-sac community. With 6 beautifully designed floor plans to choose from, there’s a layout to fit every style (including the Avignon model with a 1st Floor Master Suite). Prices start at $569,900.

LOCATION: Deerfield is just 10 minutes to the Atlantic City Expressway entrance, and also in close proximity to major state Routes 295, 95, 676, and the New Jersey Turnpike. Washington Township offers an easy commute to Philadelphia and is approximately halfway between New York and Washington, D.C. A great commuter-friendly place to live! And only a little over an hour to the Jersey Shore Points.

PARKS / RECREATION: Washington Township is a family-friendly community to build your new home in! There are numerous parks & recreational facilities to keep you and the family busy. One of the more popular parks is Washington Lake Park, which covers 330 acres and is the largest municipal park in New Jersey. The Park trails are open daily from sunrise to sunset. The Park has 3 playground areas, all are ADA compliant and two are handicap accessible. At Washington Lake Park, the township youth sports programs get to enjoy the many athletic fields which include soccer, baseball, lacrosse and softball.  The basketball courts are open to the public along with tennis courts, sand volley ball courts, two covered pavilions with grills that are available to reserve, a koi pond, and paved & wooded walking trails.  In addition, there is a multi-use recreation area available to reserve that includes Futsal, Dodgeball and Basketball and restroom facilities.  There’s something for everyone at Washington Lake Park!

SHOPPING: When living in Washington Township, you don’t need to drive very far for any of your shopping needs. Convenience is what this town is all about! Food shopping, major department stores and a variety of restaurants are all located in town. If you need more — the Gloucester Premium Outlets or Deptford Mall are a short 10 minute drive away.

MEDICAL FACILITIES: Washington Township is considered a medical hub in Gloucester County, with various offices and medical facilities to support township residents and outside areas. The Jefferson Washington Township hospital is located directly on Hurffville-Cross Keys Road, and is in the middle of a multi-million dollar expansion over the next several years.

SCHOOLS: The highly ranked school system in Washington Township is another perk to living in this amazing town! The district mission statement – “The Washington Township School District will promote a safe, inclusive environment that embraces differences and provides varied experiences to help all students build an academic foundation that will develop critical thinking skills, interpersonal skills, social and emotional intelligence, and the confidence to be ethical, responsible, and productive citizens in a global society..” Washington Township schools are a place where you can trust students to grow and shine.

Does Washington Township sound like a perfect fit for you? If it does, then now’s the time to “Make Your Move” to a Paparone New Home in one of the best communities around!

“Spring Ahead” with a Home Maintenance Checklist

Categories: Energy Conscious New Homes, Home Maintenance, New construction homes south jersey, New Homes in Burlington County, New homes in Gloucester County, New Homes In South Jersey, New Homes NJ, Uncategorized | Posted: March 8, 2019 | Comments Off on “Spring Ahead” with a Home Maintenance Checklist

 

It’s time to “Spring Ahead” this weekend in honor of Daylight Savings Time! Warmer weather is quickly approaching, and thoughts of summer vacations & end of school are near.

For homeowners, Daylight Savings Time is a great opportunity to perform simple yet important home maintenance tasks. These will not only keep your home running efficiently, but preventative maintenance will also save you money in the long run.

As you go through the house setting all those clocks ahead, make time for this short safety checklist as well. Get your home ready for the upcoming spring & summer months!

 

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS – HOME MAINTENANCE CHECKLIST

 SMOKE / CARBON MONOXIDE ALARMS:  Test your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and replace batteries if needed. The National Fire Protection Association suggests replacing your smoke and CO alarm batteries twice a year.

DRYER VENTS:  Clean out your dryer vents to reduce the risk of dryer fires and help keep your dryer working at maximum efficiency.

FIRE EXTINGUISHER:  Inspect your fire extinguisher to ensure it is fully charged or replace as needed.

CEILING FAN:  Reverse your ceiling fan’s direction (to blow upwards in the summer). While standing directly under the ceiling fan you should feel a cool breeze. Remember to adjust your thermostat when using your ceiling fan to take advantage of energy savings.

FILTERS: Check & replace heating and cooling filters. This will ensure that they are performing at their best throughout the warmer months.

EMERGENCY ESCAPE PLAN: Review your Family Emergency Escape Plan in case of a fire or other situation where you must leave the home. It’s important to discuss in advance, and determine the best routes & meet up plan.

 

Maintenance is an important step for any home owner. Cost savings, improved safety, increased efficiency & better reliability — Daylight savings time is a perfect reminder!

The Samuel J. Paparone “Commitment to Excellence” Awards

Categories: New construction homes south jersey, New construction homes south jersey, New Homes in Burlington County, New homes in Gloucester County, New Homes in Mantua, New Homes in Moorestown, New Homes In South Jersey, New Homes NJ, Uncategorized | Posted: March 1, 2019 | Comments Off on The Samuel J. Paparone “Commitment to Excellence” Awards

 

The Paparone Mission: “To build quality new homes at a great value, while providing a superior customer experience!” This mission statement is what all employees at Paparone New Homes strive for each & every day!

In an effort to recognize the outstanding quality work and exceptional customer service done by our Sales and Construction Teams, the Samuel J. Paparone “Commitment to Excellence” Award was created 19 years ago. This special award was named after the founder of the company, Samuel Paparone, who led by example. Sam’s work ethic in all aspects of the company helped shape Paparone New Homes to what it is today.

Sam was committed to each and every employee that worked for him. To Sam, “Commitment to Excellence” did not only mean for the company or the product, but it also meant helping each member of the “Paparone Team” achieve personal excellence! He wanted everyone to succeed. Many people in the company had the pleasure of working with Sam and they all remember him fondly. Today, we carry on his memory and values with this award.

This year we had the honor of presenting the award to the Construction Team at Stanwick Glen in Moorestown and the Sales Team at The Village of Country Gardens in Mantua. These two teams exemplify the strong values and hard work set forward by Samuel Paparone.

Stanwick Glen’s team consists of Shawn McCrea, Chris Collins and Josh Williams. They were faced with bringing several unique homes to life. There were many challenges that arose in the process of doing this, but through their attention to detail and ability to work with the home buyer for each house they were able to create beautiful homes and happy homeowners.

The Village of Country Gardens team includes Janet Scarduzio, Kathy Carter, and Carol Williams. Through Janet’s leadership, they were dedicated to each home buyer that walked through the door. They are by their side from the first steps of looking at models and home sites all the way through closing and beyond. With all the questions and concerns that come up, they make sure they are always available to help no matter what else they have going on.

At Paparone, every member of our team shows “commitment to excellence”. They go the distance for each home buyer and are the reason the company exists today.

The Charm of East Greenwich Township in South Jersey

Categories: First Floor Master Bedroom, New Homes East Greenwich Township, New homes in Gloucester County, New Homes In South Jersey, New Homes NJ | Posted: January 11, 2019 | Comments Off on The Charm of East Greenwich Township in South Jersey

 

Paparone has had the pleasure to build their beautiful Fox Hunt community in the charming town of East Greenwich. Nestled in a wooded glen, it makes the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, where you can spend time with your family or find a quiet place to rejuvenate yourself. With only one move-in ready new home available, the chance to move into this beautiful area isn’t over yet, but it is limited!

There are many reasons that make it such a desirable place to be. The proximity to Route 295 means that it is only a 20 minute drive from Philadelphia, which is perfect for an easy morning commute or quick access for a date night in the city. It is also close to many other South Jersey locations, such as the Deptford Mall, where you can stay up on the latest fashion trends, or the picturesque downtown areas of Mullica Hill or Mantua, where you can take a stroll down Main Street.

East Greenwich is a town that mixes the old with the new. With homes and buildings dating back to colonial era, the area is steeped in history. Just behind Fox Hunt is the Death of a Fox Inn, a classic piece of America from the 1700’s! In more recent years, this name has been taken by the Death of a Fox Brewing Company, located down the road from Fox Hunt in one of the two new shopping centers. Here you can grab a locally brewed beer or a refreshing cup of coffee. Just a few store fronts down is the already well-loved Cinder Bar, where you can get a comforting meal.

With a mixture of old country charm and modern day convenience, East Greenwich is a wonderful town to be a part of. From its proximity to the city, the food and shopping options, and the high ranking school system, it is filled with positives. The only thing that would make it better would be living there in an elegant Paparone home in the exclusive Fox Hunt community.

Does East Greenwich sound like the perfect town for you? If so, then stop by Paparone’s OPEN HOUSE this Sunday, March 10th from 12pm – 3pm. Come check out the last Move-In Ready NEW Home at Fox Hunt, with its own distinct features & upgrades. The price has been reduced, so now is the PERFECT time to buy the last new home at Fox Hunt!

The Augusta (which is located at 312 Red Fox Lane) is now priced at $419,900, with savings of over $30,000. This model offers a 1st floor Master Suite PLUS a 2nd Floor Loft Area (perfect as a play area for the kids, game room or office space). There’s approximately 2,600 sq. ft. of living space, which includes 3 bedrooms & 2.5 baths. With a welcoming front porch & 2-car side entry garage, this could be the perfect home for you!

For directions to the OPEN HOUSE on March 10th (12pm – 3pm), use GPS 312 Red Fox Lane, Clarksboro, NJ.

Paparone’s Involvement with UrbanPromise in Camden, New Jersey Spans Two Generations

Categories: Auto Insurance New Jersey, Business Insurance New Jersey, Charity in New Jersey, Charity in South Jersey, home insurance new jersey, Insurance in New jersey, New construction homes south jersey, New construction homes south jersey, Uncategorized | Posted: August 23, 2018 | Comments Off on Paparone’s Involvement with UrbanPromise in Camden, New Jersey Spans Two Generations

 

The UrbanPromise Mission – “to equip Camden’s children and young adults with the skills necessary for academic achievement, life management, spiritual growth, and Christian leadership.”

 

Over the last 30 years, UrbanPromise has been transforming the landscape of Camden one youth at a time. They do this through a variety of different programs for underprivileged children, in addition to after-school and summer camps, school education, job training and hands-on learning. Everything they do is to challenge youth to develop and realize their potential!

Numerous organizations have joined forces with UrbanPromise , including Bruce Paparone New Homes and Paparone Insurance, to support the mission at UrbanPromise through volunteering, financial contributions and fundraising efforts. One of the events to raise money is the “Pedal for Promise” bike ride that “Team Paparone” participates in annually each Spring. This past year, the team at Paparone New Homes & Paparone Insurance raised over $7,700 for UrbanPromise.

Paparone’s involvement with UrbanPromise goes back many years. Bruce Paparone, owner of Paparone Insurance and Paparone New Homes, has followed his father’s legacy of volunteering for the program. Samuel J. Paparone was a strong supporter of the school, and in 2006 Paparone New Homes built the 15,000 square foot Samuel J. Paparone Student Center for UrbanPromise in the late Samuel’s memory. The building was funded by donations from Paparone’s friends, family and business associates who contributed their time, materials and money so that this building can be used by future generations of students. The Samuel J. Paparone Student Center hosts classrooms, a computer lab, faculty/administration offices, a meeting room, a lunch room and warm up kitchen.

UrbanPromise was recently featured on ABC’s Nightline with Diane Sawyer. The episode was a follow-up story to an interview from over 10 years ago, featuring several children from UrbanPromise. One of the original children who were interviewed, Josh Williams, now works for Bruce Paparone New Homes, Inc. These individuals featured on Nightline are just a few of the many success stories of UrbanPromise.  Watch the interview here –>  UrbanPromise Interview with Diane Sawyer on Nightline
