NEWTON, NJ – The new housing development in Newton, Grande Villaggio at Newton, a Martorana Enterprises, LLC development, celebrated its ribbon cutting this afternoon, Thurs., Oct. 29.
“I’d like to say ‘congratulations’ to the Martoranas,” said Newton Deputy Mayor Sandra Diglio, who looked through both models open during the ribbon cutting for viewing.
All units feature three bedrooms, though the end units have two car garages, and the others, one.
The new community, located off of Sparta Avenue in Newton tucked behind the shopping center with Quick Chek and Krave Caterers, boast units with hardwood flooring, plush carpeting, elegant tiling in the kitchen and baths and spacious, walk-in closets.
Each home features a backyard patio and yard area. There will be a clubhouse for the 54 units in the neighborhood, bike paths with connections to the nearby Pine Street Park.
The new section of Newton is conveniently located to the downtown and a quick jaunt to all the major commuting roadways in the county.
“We’re looking forward to working with the community on offering them these open units at this great price,” said Lisa Fairclough of Fairclough Realtors and Property Management.
Property owner Greg Martorana and his family were present for the ribbon cutting, along with local dignitaries. Others present included: Newton Town Manager Thomas S. Russo, Jr., Deputy Town Manager Debra Lockwood Millikin, Freeholder Gail Phoebus, and Surrogate Gary Chiusano, who was an Assemblyman with Legislative District 24 when the project was in its planning stages.
Tammie Horsfield, President of the Sussex County Chamber of Commerce and Nancy Woods, Executive Director Greater Newton Chamber of Commerce, were also in attendance.
“I think it’s wonderful to see action and the finished product of development in Newton and Sussex County,” said Phoebus, a candidate for one of the two Legislative District 24 seats. “It’s a testimony to everyone involved in this project to get to this point.”
