Athertyn Pursuits Fall-Winter 2012 -- Variety of Fun & Fitness

While Athertyn homeowners value their privacy they also take pleasure in our community’s active social life. At the center of this sociability is the clubhouse, reserved for residents and their guests. Located just steps from the residence buildings, the exquisite clubhouse serves as a favorite meeting spot for a wide range of social, recreational, and intellectual activities.

Residents' Clubhouse at Athertyn Interior

Grab a full-body workout in the state-of-the-art fitness center with club-style locker rooms. Or take a dip in the outdoor pool and Jacuzzi. Across the way are a tennis court, a putting green, miles of hiking and bicycling trails, as well as an extensive community garden. You may also take advantage of the indoor golf simulator to polish your game all year long. Even the new Township Recreation & Environmental Center is right down the hill, featuring an indoor walking track, an ecological center, special programs, and a fantastic playground for entertaining your grandchildren.

Athertyn Enrichment Series

Open to residents as well as the invited public, the Athertyn Enrichment Series offers stimulating cultural and social events that are terrific opportunities for you to experience our community. This past spring we hosted a “Fashion Rescue” trunk show with acclaimed fashion designer Frank Agostino (posing here with two models). In May, Victoria Wyeth (posing here with Todd Pohlig) provided personal family stories and her perspective on the most influential works of her grandfather, Andrew Wyeth, one of the great masters of American painting.

Existing Home Sales Remain Strong Going Into the New Year

The NAHB reports that sales of existing homes continue to be strong through November of this year.  These numbers are up from the previous month of October and the statistics show that sales of existing homes are way up from this time last year.  Almost a third of the buyers were first time home buyers, another third being cash sales and a small portion going to real estate investors

The inventory of homes available has dropped from last month to a 4.8 month supply.  Down almost half of what it was last year.  Home buyers are gaining confidence in the growing economy. These indicators are strong in supporting a continuing economic growth and recovery!

Athertyn Pursuits Fall-Winter 2012 -- Built on Green Principles

Todd Pohlig, along with his brother Don, heads up the highly regarded Pohlig organization, which conceived and developed Athertyn. As a Certified Green Professional, Todd Pohlig is well educated on what makes a green home smarter, healthier, and more energy efficient. He has a comprehensive understanding of what it means to ‘go green’ — which is why Athertyn was built with the principles upheld by the Green Resource Council of the National Association of Home Builders.

When planning your home at Athertyn you will learn about green features, appliances, and materials that are cost saving and better for your personal well being and the planet. In fact, the greatest benefit you’ll derive from a green building is comfort — from Low-E windows and uniform temperature control to comfortably proportioned floor plans.





New Plans, New Pricing

An array of elegant floor plans range in size from 1,600 to nearly 3,000 square feet, and pricing ranges from the mid- $400,000s to more than $1 million. When you add in Pohlig’s signature craftsmanship and attention to detail along with the potential for personalization, you can see how a custom-grade home at Athertyn can reflect your individual taste and style.

Outstanding Livability

Each Athertyn model combines the ease of single-level living with custom-grade finishes. Beautifully appointed kitchens with morning rooms flow neatly into spacious living areas with signature Pohlig details, such as nine-foot coffered ceilings, six-foot windows, and custom millwork. A superior HVAC system provides fresh air and vents unwanted odors outside. Private, covered terraces invite you to lounge outdoors.

Homeowners love the custom grade features included in their Athertyn condominium and they often choose to personalize their home in ways that further enhance the living space and align with their individual interests. The study in this Furness model is equipped with custom Lutron Smart Home Lighting and Sound Systems. In addition, wainscoting transforms the walls for a classic traditional look. A state-of-the-art flat screen television was mounted to the wall, making the study suitable for business and relaxation.
