Riverfront townhome community fills the gap in the new home marketplace

BENSALEM, Pa. – There is a 45-acre stretch of land that lies along the Delaware River in Bensalem, Bucks County.From the river’s edge, the Center City skyline is visible and the river itself is dotted with both shipping and recreational boating activity. The location is just ½ mile from the Cornwells Heights regional SEPTA/Amtrak station and a commute into the city can be achieved in less than thirty minutes.

It is also the location of Waterside, an architecturally rich townhome community offering quality new homes on the riverfront which is unprecedented in the area. Waterside offers 2- and 3-bedroom townhomes priced from the low $300s, bringing quality new homes to the riverfront at a remarkable value. The community is offered by local homebuilder Mignatti Companies which has a long-standing reputation for building quality homes and lifestyle communities.

“Mignatti is the only builder in this area offering the innovative concept of a newly constructed riverside neighborhood,” stated Waterside homebuyer Glenn, originally of Philadelphia. “I’ll have a beautiful view of the Delaware River from my rooftop terrace. I never thought I would live so well.”

Residents of Waterside will enjoy an 8-acre riverfront park, a corner store, shops, gardens, office space and riverside dining, all steps from their front door. This progressive community design will offer neighborhood appeal with an urban twist creating a unique destination for people who prefer not to live within the city itself.

The blending of urban and suburban conveniences was one of the most appealing factors to Waterside homebuyer Rich of Philadelphia.

“I was drawn to the idea of a new development built around a sense of community,” Rich stated. “Growing up in Philadelphia, I knew my neighbors and had regular interaction with them. The suburban experience is typically disconnected, but at Waterside it is the best of both worlds.”

Waterside is designed to create neighborhoods within the larger community, with gardens, parks, gathering spaces and streetscapes designed to lure people to the river’s edge. Waterside’s multi-level home designs and its proximity to highways, trains and shopping also have a wide appeal.

“The most convenient aspect of this new community on the Delaware River is that it is situated so close to everything- highways, trains, shopping, Philadelphia, the burbs. I can live an incredible lifestyle on the river and not be isolated from the everyday conveniences that we all want,” Glenn commented.

Waterside offers 2- and 3-bedroom townhomes with interesting architecture, spacious floor plans and rear-loading garages. A selection of townhomes is currently available starting in the low $300s.

Site construction is underway and pre-construction pricing is being offered for only a limited time. Interested homebuyers are encouraged to make a personal appointment to visit the Sales Center, which is open daily.

Waterside is located at 2375 State Road in Bensalem, about 1 mile south of Street Rd.
