Gary and Kim Belton have been staples of the Morris County community for nearly four decades. Gary, the retired owner of a local design business servicing the New York metro area, and Kim, a Nurse Manager at the Morristown Medical Center, had lived in a beautifully restored home in the Brookside section of Mendham, N.J. since the early 1980s. The two-story colonial farmhouse provided story book living, with gingerbread architectural railings and brackets on the front porch and the tranquil Harmony Brook running through their property. However, after almost 40 years, the couple decided it was time to write the next chapter in their life story and trade in the tiresome chores that come with maintaining a three-bedroom single-family home for the ease of care-free living in a new rental home.
“We decided to move in the summer of 2020,” Mr. Belton said. “Our decision to move was mostly driven by the strong real estate market at the time. We first explored buying a condo or townhouse.
We were looking for a simple lifestyle without the maintenance and property upkeep associated with owning a home. We wanted to downsize and enjoy a turnkey lifestyle. Lock it and forget it, so to speak!”
After considering their options, the Beltons decided a luxe apartment would best fit their needs and began to search properties in Morris County, with Morristown, its entertainment and cultural heart, being the preferred destination. Unfortunately, many of the properties the couple visited in the area did not provide the kind of living environment they sought.
“We looked at all of the new rental properties in Morristown,” Gary recalled. “Our search revealed that new construction apartments in Morristown and surrounding towns offered insufficient square footage to meet our needs. We also noticed the quality was lacking in the workmanship and many had narrow hallways resembling more of a dorm than a home.”
Luckily, a friend who was also looking for a rental in Morristown directed the Beltons to 30 Court, a boutique 58-home rental building developed by PCD Development of New Providence, is one block from the famed Morristown “Green.” 30 Court features ultra luxe residences with expansive living spaces and modern amenities. They made an appointment for a showing immediately.
“When we discovered 30 Court, we were very excited,” Mr. Belton added. “It was the first rental that checked all the boxes on our list. Paramount in our decision to lease at 30 Court was the square footage to accommodate our furnishings. We were very impressed by the quality construction, trim, doors, fixtures, and cabinets, as well as the high ceilings and spacious floor plans. We wanted large closets and a large en-suite master bath. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms were also a must.”
Greatly impressed by 30 Court, the Beltons quickly moved forward to lease a 1,560 square foot home with patio and courtyard view, becoming one of the building’s first residents and fostering its vibrant environment and welcoming feel. The couple is now living the maintenance-free lifestyle they sought in a modern, stylish building with world-class amenities at their fingertips.
“There’s an open feeling as you enter the building that’s enhanced by the wide hallways,” Mr. Belton said. “There’s trendy decor and furnishings in common areas, carpeted hallways and a modern mail room with the secure Luxor system. We both loved the fitness center with high quality equipment and the courtyard was a big plus for us.”
Location also played a huge role in the attractiveness of 30 Court, Mr. Belton points out. With Kim serving as an important and crucial frontline healthcare worker at Morristown Medical Center, the building allows her to reach the facility in minutes time.
“It’s a five-minute commute for her,” he said, “and we’re near plenty of shopping and restaurants in downtown Morristown.”
The four-story 30 Court building offers a mix of two-bedroom and two-bedroom-plus-den homes that range from approximately 1,250 square feet to up to 2,000 square feet of interior space, many with additional balconies or terraces.
