Edwards Group launches fall sales program.

The Edwards Group Ltd, a full service real estate development firm, has launched a fall sales program at its residential projects in the Hudson Valley region with homes that are totally redesigned and priced to meet today's highly competitive market.

The two projects are Cortlandt Estates, a community of 119 single-family homes in the Town of Cortlandt; and Wildflower Hills, an 88-townhome development in Hopewell Junction.

Located on 126.5 wooded acres on Lafayette Avenue and off Route 202 in Cortlandt Manor in the Town of Cortlandt, Cortlandt Estates features three-, four- and five-bedroom homes ranging in size from approximately 1,800 to 3,000 square feet of living space, priced from $255,000 to $362,000.

A new sales center and model homes opened in September.

"The homebuyers of the 1990's are demanding greater value for their housing dollar. At Cortlandt Estates we are responding to this new reality by offering quality built homes that are creatively designed and competitively priced," said Edward A. Jacoby, a principal of The Edwards Group Ltd., a Scarsdale-based development firm that is developing Cortlandt Estates for the project's owner, Astoria Federal Savings & Loan Association.

The new Greenlawn Series homes at Cortlandt Estates are available in six models with 10 different floor plans.

"We're offering custom homes at production home prices," said Edward M. Coplon, an architect and a principal of The Edwards Group, who designed the homes along with Sylvan Joseph Architects A.I.A. of White Plains.

The architectural styles of the homes are traditional center hall Colonials and New England contemporaries with attractive clapboard cedar siding. The homes have full basements with most home sites allowing for rear yard access.

Most of the home sites are a half acre or more and are interspersed throughout the site surrounding a four-acre pond. Approximately 30 percent of the property is preserved

Inside, the homes feature cathedral ceilings, master bedroom suites with whirlpool tubs, fireplaces, wall-to-wall carpeting, two-zone central air conditioning, ceramic tile floors, breakfast areas, laundry rooms, skylights, walkin closets, recessed lighting and European laminate or wood-grain kitchen cabinets, full basements and two-car garages.

Some models allow for a three-car garage, front porch, vaulted entry, extra bedroom over the garage, and expandable attic.

The Edwards Group's other major project, Wildflower Hills, is a 88-townhome community on 44 acres in the Dutchess County community of Hopewell Junction. Wildflower Hills, which was started in 1989 by The Edwards Group in a joint venture with Peoples Westchester Savings Bank, boasts a fully completed recreational facility and spectacular views of the Hudson River Valley.

Wildflower Hills was initially aimed at Westchester buyers looking for a home with the rural quality of Dutchess County yet within commuting distance of Westchester and at prices $50,000 lower than Westchester's.
