Great Location, Top-Quality Designs and Outstanding Features Can Be Found at Hidden Meadows

Allentown, PA -- Nestled in the scenic countryside of Upper Macungie Township, Hidden Meadows by Sal Lapio Homes offers a unique town home opportunity for home buyers who want a great value, luxurious design and an extraordinarily convenient location.

Located in Lehigh County’s prestigious Parkland School District, Hidden Meadows town homes include a first- or second-floor main bedroom, one- or two-car garage, granite countertops, 42-inch kitchen cabinets, available walk-out basements, grass and trash care are provided and six-month deliveries are available. This new community also offers tree-lined sidewalks on both sides of the street, eight acres of open space and an intimate, private setting close to world-class shopping and recreation.

Hidden Meadows is just minutes from the entrance to the Pennsylvania Turnpike Northeast Extension and close to Interstate 78 and Routes 309, 22 and 222, offering ideal convenience for on-the-go home owners who want an easy commute to work in Lehigh Valley, Berks County, Philadelphia, or the Poconos.

“Hidden Meadows is ideally suited for home owners who enjoy travel, leisure or an active lifestyle and who understand the value of having an owners’ association that provides for all lawn-care maintenance,” said Stephen F. Lampmann, Vice President and General Manager of Sal Lapio Homes.

Ground was broken in mid-July on the first phase of the Hidden Meadows community, which will include 82 town homes. The first closings will occur in December.

Financed by Quakertown National Bank and marketed by ERA Platinum Realty, the Hidden Meadows community offers six unique home designs ranging from 1,400 to 2,000 square feet and featuring three bedrooms or dual masters, two-and-half baths and one- and two-car garages all crafted to blend the many features desired by today’s home buyers.

Lampmann says he and owner Sal Lapio are confident about the improving economy and both believe that the federal stimulus efforts and a rallying home market buoyed by historically low mortgage rates will encourage renters and homebuyers to realize that now is the time to buy a new home.

Those factors coupled with Sal Lapio’s reputation for quality, the value-packed townhomes of Hidden Meadows and pre-construction prices starting at $206,900 make Hidden Meadows a terrific investment for home buyers, Lampmann said.

Hidden Meadows is the latest in a long line of well-designed residential communities designed and built by Sal Lapio, an Italian immigrant who came to the United States in 1967 and began building homes in 1972. Lapio began his career in the Reading area, working with his brother-in-law and father-in-law, first as a laborer and later as a mason.

After several years of working in Berks County, Lapio moved to Willow Grove and focused on building in Bucks and Montgomery counties. He and his company earned their reputations for quality work by listening to customers and implementing the features and designs they wanted – all at an affordable price.

In 1982 he founded Sal Lapio Homes – now based in Sellersville – a solid home-building company that recently topped off its 2,500th home.

“Today’s buyers have great opportunities to purchase a new home. We have wide selection of homes available and mortgage rates are at their lowest point in years,” Lapio told The Philadelphia Inquirer in 2008. “We take great pride in taking care of our home buyers every step of the way.”
