Residential Development Groundbreaking in Barnegat Planned for June

BARNEGAT, N.J., May 31, 2012 – Walters Homes plans to begin construction in June on a new community at Whispering Hills, offering 97 single-family homes. Forty-three homes will be part of the initial phase, starting at $306,995. The project is situated off Rose Hill Road and Emerson Lane.

Homebuyers can choose from six spacious models with living space ranging from 1,912 square feet to 2,612 square feet. Each home will include many standard designer features such as contemporary kitchens, master suites with shower and separate soaking tub, large walk-in closets, two-car garages, and full poured basements. Energy-efficient appliances, lighting and HVAC systems will also be included.

“Homebuyers have an opportunity to take advantage of ideal home buying conditions and build a new home of their own at the Jersey Shore,” said Pamela Schuster, marketing and sales manager for Walters Homes. Construction is expected to begin in September on a 2,340-square-foot Madison model, featuring a two-story foyer and gourmet kitchen.

Adding value to the community is a 28-acre tree preservation area, which borders the development. In addition, the project is located adjacent to the Barnegat Branch Rail Trail Bikeway, a 15.6-mile former rail line extending from Barnegat Township to Toms River. When completed, the Barnegat Branch trail will join 43 existing and proposed rail-trail projects across New Jersey.

This project marks an exciting final phase of new construction added to the multi-phased development at Whispering Hills – 107 new townhomes and 52 rental apartments will be constructed.

Whispering Hills is situated in the historic township of Barnegat, bordered on the east by Barnegat Bay and separated from the Atlantic Ocean by the barrier island of Long Beach. Residents enjoy easy access to three major cities, Philadelphia, New York City, and Atlantic City, while enjoying the charm and ambiance of coastal living. The town has been recognized for its outstanding quality-of-life, including exceptional recreational amenities and a respected educational school system.

The Whispering Hills at Barnegat sales offices are located at 304 Hawthorne Lane and 57 Nautilus Drive. For more information about Whispering Hills, please contact either sales office at 609-607-9400 or 609-698-7700 or visit
