News at Woodmere at Goshen


THE VILLAGE OF GOSHEN, NY – Christopher and Ashley Vero were searching for a new home for nearly two years before they were first introduced to Woodmere at Goshen. As a young married couple, the Vero’s main concern was finding an honest, reputable builder who would consider every detail of the home. “We wanted a home that was close to the highway for an easy commute, but also located in a great school district and a friendly, safe environment,” the Vero’s said. “Woodmere at Goshen has it all.”

Located in the Village of Goshen in Orange County, NY, Woodmere at Goshen is a collection of 18 new custom homes priced from $349,900. “Woodmere is a well-planned, intimate development in the stunning, quintessential All-American village of Goshen,” Christopher added. “The staff at Forefront Homes is highly professional and took the time to guide us through every step of the building process.”

Finding a home that appeases all the desires on a homebuyer’s wish list is no easy feat. “But I was amazed at the detail that Forefront Homes puts into every decision made for their homes – from the Carriage House garage doors, to the rubbed oil bronze downspouts and interior lighting package, Forefront gives the buyer so many extras that other builders would normally charge for,” Christopher said.

The Vero’s personalized their three-bedroom home by visiting Woodmere at Goshen’s in-house design gallery. “We selected a customized version of the Fernmere model,” Christopher said. “The design of the home is an open concept two-floor colonial with large windows that bring in lots of natural sunlight, as well as a kitchen that opens to the great room.”

The duo loves the “Open Living” lifestyle concept. “We will spend most of our time around our oversized kitchen island, and it is ideal having the kitchen flow into the great room for family holidays and gatherings,” they said.

The Vero’s were impressed by the many distinct details that Forefront puts into their homes. “Mike Walker, our builder, was willing to listen to our ideas, value our opinions and make our dreams a reality,” Christopher said. “The entire staff at Forefront Homes has made us feel like family.”

Nestled in a charming, pedestrian-friendly village, the area’s rich history and thriving business center is what captivated the Vero’s even more. “Everything, from the farmer’s market and the restaurants to the tree-lined streets, is within walking distance to our home,” Christopher said. “We’re also around the corner from The Heritage Trail – a paved trail that spans from Monroe to Goshen.”

Since this was the first house that Chris and Ashley had built, they knew the process could be overwhelming. “But in reality, our home buying experience was just amazing,” Christopher said. “The entire staff at Forefront Homes guided us along the way. They valued our thoughts and opinions and made us feel like we were always their priority. We could not be happier with our new home.”
For those in the market for a new home, the couple offers the following advice, “Meet with as many builders as you can to see what they have to offer. That’s what we did and once we met with Forefront Homes, we knew that the others couldn’t compare. From the first time we turned into Woodmere Circle, we knew we were home.”

Woodmere at Goshen is just a short walk to the center of The Village of Goshen and minutes from Bear Mountain State Park, Harriman State Park, The Golf Club at Mansion Ridge, Otterkill Country Club, Brotherhood Winery, Woodbury Commons, United States Military Academy at West Point and the newly opened Orange Regional Medical Center.
