Howell Township, N.J., February 5, 2004:  Sure M. Rieder Companies’ Toscana is well known for its stylish home designs that offer every comfort and luxury, however just as impressive is the neighborhood’s outstanding location.  Nestled in a quiet, scenic corner of Howell Township, this community is ideal for anyone searching for the convenience of easy access to great schools, transportation thoroughfares, recreational attractions, and all of the finer things in life.


“When homebuyers visit Toscana for the first time, they fall in love with the design of the neighborhood itself, and its inviting streetscapes characterized by Belgian block curbing, mature surrounding woods, and lovely ponds,” says Marge Karahuta, Director of Sales.  “And yet, many find the convenient location just as attractive.  This area is a commuter’s dream, while families appreciate the highly-ranked Howell Township School District and the rich array of recreational venues close at hand.”


Toscana’s Howell Township location is a beautiful blend of rural charm and modern conveniences.  Lush landscape surrounds the community, while gentle rolling hills and wide-open fields are found just beyond its borders.  Allaire State Park, Manasquan Reservoir, and Oak Glen Park feature a wealth of fun-filled

recreational activities and facilities such as hiking, horse-back riding, picnicking, and more.  And who can resist a trip to the beaches on the shore – only a twenty-minute drive(??) away!


Travel to Manhattan, Philadelphia and throughout New Jersey is also a breeze with the Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike, I-195, and Routes 9,18,33, and 34 close by.  Or, you can choose to sit back and relax on public transportation, including bus service and the Park & Ride to major business centers. 


The fantastic location is just as inviting as the fabulous home designs.  All Toscana homes are characterized by stunning floorplans inspired by the inviting Tuscan lifestyle, and are priced from the $400’s.  Gracious master-suites with sumptuous baths, gourmet kitchens with center islands, hardwood flooring throughout the first floor, two-story entry-foyers, and more are just a few of the gorgeous appointments that many of these home designs include. 


Toscana homes also benefit from the innovative new Energy Star Program. M. Rieder Companies has endowed homes at Toscana with this program that makes them at least 30 percent more energy efficient than the norm. As a result, homeowners’ monthly energy bills are dramatically reduced. What’s more, they easily outperform other new homes -- not merely in reduced energy costs, but also in terms of uniform quality and comfort.

With the creation and design of Toscana, M. Rieder Companies has once again shown how intuitive and sensitive they are to the desires and needs of people searching for a very particular way of life. M. Rieder Companies has been building beautiful, high-quality family homes for more than 40 years.
