When Doctors Stephen and Marie Rozan decided it was time to move from their four-bedroom Colonial in Mendham to a more convenient location, their first thought was Morristown. The retired dermatologists operated their business, Affiliated Dermatology, at the corner of South and Elm Streets for years, so they were already familiar with Morristown’s vibrant downtown, gourmet restaurants and picturesque setting. They knew that they wanted Morristown to be a part of their lifestyle even after their retirement.
“We already loved the community,” Marie said. “The live theater, the museums, the great restaurants, the fact that it’s easy to walk to everything. We just needed to find a home that would allow us to take advantage of everything that downtown Morristown offers.”
The Rozans found the home they were looking for at 40 Park, a luxury condominium building on the Morristown Green, right in the heart of downtown Morristown. After living in their new home for seven months, the Rozans agree that 40 Park perfectly suits their needs. The penthouse residence they purchased is spacious and has a great view of a professionally-landscaped piazza. Best of all, it is maintenance-free. They don’t have to worry about landscaping or home repair, which gives them more time to enjoy 40 Park’s fabulous amenities and everything downtown Morristown has to offer. A 24-hour concierge takes care of all of their other needs.
“Living at 40 Park really makes everything very easy,” Marie said. “You can walk to the post office. You can walk to the library. It’s convenient to everything. The fact that everything is taken care of for us cuts down on stress and gives us more time to enjoy ourselves.”
The Rozans love the building’s amenities, particularly Stephen. He is exercising more often now that he doesn’t have to drive to the gym. He works out in the state-of-the-art 40 Park Fitness Center. He also raves about the community’s heated garage, since it has kept him comfortable and his car snow-free this winter.
Both Marie and Stephen enjoy socializing with their new neighbors.
“There’s a certain amount of social life in this building.” Stephen said. “You don’t always get that in a private home. There was just a big Academy Awards party that a lot of people attended. Everyone had a great time.”
One of 40 Park’s biggest draws is its proximity to the Morristown train station, which connects residents with New York City. The Rozans take the train to Manhattan only occasionally, but they’re happy to be near it because it makes it easy for friends and relatives to visit. They’ve had many visitors from New York City since moving in who would have had a more difficult time visiting them in Mendham.
“Our visitors love it,” Stephen said. “They love the layout of the penthouse and they love the fact that we can walk everywhere. It sounds to me like more people are moving toward this style of living.”
40 Park features 76 luxury condominium residences with a variety of one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans in a distinctive seven-story building. Prices currently start in the mid- $400,000s and go up to $1 million for the Signature residences and range from $1 million to $2.2 million for the penthouses. The penthouses include up to 3,200 square feet of living space and provide extraordinary private terraces of up to 1,800 square feet of outdoor living space not offered anywhere else in the area.
Found throughout the homes, depending on the plan, are a variety of upscale features and appointments. Kitchen layouts are spacious and feature granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Hardwood floors and nine-foot ceilings frame the residence while polished marble floors and countertops with undermount sinks provide extra luxury in the master and secondary bathrooms. Balconies with decorative railings and architectural bay windows are included in some residences.
The community’s private amenity floor, The Park Center, boasts a state-of-the-art fitness center, billiard tables, flat screen TVs and a media room. The homes also come with private, indoor parking and concierge service.
