I have lived in Springfield Commons since the summer of 2010 and I couldn’t speak more positively about the area, the sense of community, the surroundings and the quality, comfort and energy efficiency of my home.
Boalsburg has always had a small-town feel and Springfield Commons carries that community spirit throughout. The neighborhood is surrounded by mountains, fresh air and wildlife but we’re only a few minutes away from the major employers, outstanding businesses and many recreational activities such as Tussey Mountain skiing, hiking trails and of course Penn State sports. Boalsburg is also home to many major events such as The People’s Choice Fest and Memorial Day celebrations but they also have smaller events such as town parades and fireman’s carnivals. Living in the State College Area School District was also very important to me.
The quality and energy efficiency of my home is very high end and my energy costs are always surprisingly low. When I drove into the neighborhood in 2010 while searching for a home, I immediately noticed how well built the homes were and the quality of materials used which was a major draw. I also noticed how friendly my neighbors were and how well they spoke of the neighborhood and the community. It’s so nice also to use the amenities reserved for us such as a tot lot, neighborhood gatherings and the use of the Community Center with fitness center.
I would and often do recommend Springfield Commons to anyone who is interested in this type of quality lifestyle.
I was looking to relocate from New Jersey and my mother suggested Springfield Commons on a whim. I fell in love with the location immediately and found a floor plan that suited me to a tee! Once it was determined that the model I wanted could indeed be built on the lot of my choice I never looked back! I loved the look of the small community, the front porches, the amenities provided to residents and the sense of neighborhood.
I watched my house being built and was impressed by all the craftsmen who made my home a reality. I was welcomed to stop by anytime I was in the area during construction and no one ever made me feel I was being intrusive. It was a very positive experience in all aspects. I have a quality built, energy efficient home that is as cozy on the inside as it is beautiful on the outside.
I have not had a moment of doubt or regret since making the decision to build in Springfield Commons and all the things that attracted me initially still hold true almost a year later.
Dear Prospective Resident of Springfield Commons,
If you are in the market to rent a purchase a home in Boalsburg you need to think of one name only. That name is Mr. Tom Songer and the Torron Group. I have personally experienced the first-class advantage of dealing with Mr. Songer and the great people at the Torron Group. Coming from a different state and not knowing anything about an area can be very stressful. I had changed jobs and needed to find a place for my wife, daughter, and I to live. Usually my wife makes these decisions but she was not able to travel with me initially and I was on my own. I was fortunate to meet a great agent named Mr. Ken Stuck the agent for Springfield Commons and the rest is history. Mr. Stuck understood my situation and that I wanted to live in an upscale home that my family would like. I was shown a great town house and could not have been happier and more at ease. I met with Mr. Songer and not only did he deal with me in a professional and friendly manner he spent a great deal of time speaking with me about the area and offering any assistance myself or my family would need.
The townhouse we rented was of high quality and very comfortable. In dealing with the Torron group on any requests they always were very friendly ,prompt and very professional. It was evident that they take pride in their neighborhood and have personal commitment to the residents of their community.
If you want a first class living experience in the Boalsburg Pennsylvania area call Mr. Tom Songer and his agent Mr. Ken Stuck and leave the rest to them. You will have a worry free experience and have a great place to call home. Should you ever need to speak to me personally please call me at anytime to more fully describe the wonderful experience my family and I had residing at Springfield Commons. You will be happy you chose Springfield Commons and the Torron Group.
The reasons for buying in Springfield Commons were that we were looking to purchase a small, new house (ours was 27 years old) with a first-floor bedroom. It was difficult to find at the time. Also, since Lois doesn’t drive, it was great to have a CATA stop on Torrey Lane and probably the most important consideration for us to buy here.
When we began looking, we fell in love with our lot which has a tremendous view of Mt. Nittany. Since I likethe natural look of landscaping, I liked the "feel" of the surrounding land. The building quality of our house is superb and the price was within our price range. We can also enjoy displays of fireworks in the summerfrom the football and baseball stadiums. Adding the rural atmosphere and all the activities associated with historic Boalsburg, the birthplace of Memorial Day made it "just what we were looking for." An additional plus is that the Boalsburg Barn has great plays during the summer months.
For a golfer, it is great -2 miles from the Elks Country Club. We also lived downtown in a condo at one time and knew, for sure, we did not want to be there again.
Prior to discovering Springfield Commons, we had been working with a local realtor for five years to find a place to build our dream home. When asked by our friends and neighborswhy we chose Springfield Commons, we like to tell them that there were several reasons. One, we were able to select our builder, the lot and use our own building plan for our home. Two, we were attracted to the fact that our lawn would be cut and snow removed by the Homeowner’s Association. Three, we liked the idea of having a club house and fitness center where we could work out and have a place to congregate with friends and neighbors. Also, it was important to us to live in a planned neighborhood and to be near to our beloved Penn State. Springfield Commons met our needs and is a community we are proud to call home.
After living in the Centre Region for nearly 40 years and more than 25 of those in downtown State College, Springfield Commons offers the best of Centre County with the proximity to the University community. The quality of the construction,the layout of our house, the great neighbors and the amenities (mowing, snow removal, wireless internet and a community center) satisfied all of the criteria that we wanted before deciding to relocate. New construction and low maintenance is such a pleasure after decades of home repairs!
