From appliances to your home’s structure, at The Whittaker, all of our homes come with quality warranties.

Plus, when you become the owner of a brand new The Whittaker home, you get to customize multiple aspects so it looks just the way you want it. Choose two different carpet colors, tile, cabinets, and countertops … for FREE.

Sure, the perks you’ll find inside our homes are great, but if you’ve taken the virtual tour, you know that already. What about the perks outside of your home?

The Whittaker features a shared club room and fitness room and the best part is that you get to enjoy it as much as you want without having to maintain it!

Today Mill Hill is a strong community with a clear and promising future in which residents have the opportunity to socialize as part of the

Located in the Mill Hill Designated Historic Neighborhood, your backyard is filled with beautiful homes dating back to the 19th century. As stated on its website, the Mill Hill neighborhood is a “strong community with a clear and promising future.”

The Whittaker is also within walking distance to Trenton Train Station, so our homeowners can experience New York City without having to worry about the cost or hassle of parking.

While you may have neighbors you want to head down the street to Trenton Social with, your home is your own, which means that you can have as much or as little neighborly interaction as you want.

So what are you waiting for? Contact us today and learn how you can become a homeowner before we’re 100% sold out!



Pick Your Perfect Whittaker Home and Move In for the Holidays

Categories: Historic Trenton, New Homes in Trenton | Posted: November 17, 2017 | Comments Off on Pick Your Perfect Whittaker Home and Move In for the Holidays

It’s better at home, in a home you own! And where better to spend the holidays this year than in a home that you own?

When it comes to a Brand New Home, we know that one size certainly does not fit all and that’s why at The Whittaker, located in the Mill Hill Historic Neighborhood we have several different floor plan options and endless combinations of possibilities.  And, every Whittaker home is NJ Energy Star certified for lower monthly utility bills forever…yes, forever…and the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping to save our environment.

The Whittaker features four floors of luxurious, brand new, state of the art condominiums, all served by a luxurious, quiet, high-speed elevator. On the first floor, the lobby has a beautiful marble floor, and all of our homeowners are invited to use the outfitted private fitness center and private club room. …perfect for holiday parties or just spending some time with your family and friends outside of your home.

All of our homeowners are given a private on-lot parking spot conveniently accessed from the rear of the lobby, which gives you the opportunity to enjoy everything city life has to offer without the hassle of circling the block looking for a place to park. These are just a few of the added amenities homeowners look for…but at The Whittaker there’s no extra charge!

We’ve designed our homes with you in mind and since we’ve been in this business for a while, we’ve learned a thing or two.

Whether you’re looking for a single level or duplex level penthouse, all of our two bedrooms, two bath homes feature spacious living areas and kitchens that are stocked with brand new appliances and are designed with cooking in mind (you won’t believe how cool they can be). When you own your home, it’s hard to resist the urge to entertain. Now, you can play host, chef, and guest all at the same time.

Whether you have people sleeping in all of the bedrooms every night or just staying for a long vacation, with this spacious of a home, you’re going to have laundry. Which, is why with the opening of one door, you’ll find room for a full-size washer and dryer.

If you’re one of those people who loves to change your decor with the seasons, our homes are perfect for you. Every homeowner home has their own private extra storage unit on the first floor so you’ll never have to choose between saving space or being festive.

No matter which home you choose, at The Whittaker, you’ll be able to choose from multiple cabinets, countertops, carpet colors and tile choices FOR FREE. No one knows you as well as you do, so shouldn’t you be able to decide what your home should look like?

The holidays are better in a home you own and if you need to get in fast, we have quick-delivery homes available.  With as little as zero to 3% in downpayment and monthly costs to own as little as $1,010 (depending on model), plus a tax abatement, why pay more to rent when you could own and build wealth for you and your family instead of your landlord!

Don’t spend another year in a rental, contact us today and learn how you can become a homeowner.  Our fully furnished models await your inspection by personal appointment.

Spring has finally sprung! It may have taken the warm weather a while to settle in but better late than never right? Kick off the first weekend of May the right way and head over to the Capital City Book Fair! It’s taking place this Friday & Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Mill Hill Park on Lafayette Street in Trenton, NJ. Pour through new & used books to find the perfect summer read or enjoy a game of scrabble. There’s also going to be a poetry slam and an open mic if you’re more into the listening rather than the reading aspect of stories.

The best part? It’s only a few blocks away from The Whittaker so you can pick up a few books and then head over to The Whittaker for a tour of your new home – after all you’re going to need a place that can fit a luxury bookcase for your new reads right?


This weekend’s forecast is calling for blue skies and even though the temperature may be high our prices are always low! Go ahead – buy the second book because for a limited time we’re offering to pay your closing costs! Now the only tough decision you’ll have to make is stainless steel or black?

April Fools Blog Photo


Happy April Fool’s Day! Today’s the day to be careful of the money you happen to find on the ground and pretty much anything anyone tells you. One thing you don’t have to be careful about – The Whittaker. I know you probably think a brand new condo from $1,089/month, $0 down and a 30 year fixed rate mortgage is just an April fools joke. BUT IT’S NOT! Come in on April 2nd, May 4th, August 15th or any other day of the year and you’ll still find a brand new home of your own that you can afford.


Another thing we’re 100% serious about? Putting more money in your pocket and less in an envelope to your utility companies. Every, single home at The Whittaker is Energy Star Certified which means LOWER MONTHLY UTILITY BILLS.  Older homes come with a whole pack of problems, a big one being drafts, appliances that drain energy and a harder time regulating the temperature of your home. That’s what makes The Whittaker so great, it’s move-in ready and you can leave all the home problems of your past at the door.

At The Whittaker we love a good prank as much as the next person but one thing we never joke about is your ability to own your own home. So contact Claribel Santiago and take your tour today! 609-695-3300

Ever since Punxsutawney Phil declared six more weeks of winter it’s just been more of the same old routines. Wake up, bundle up, face the cold hair, come home and snuggle on the couch with a blanket. That’s fine for when you want to unwind after a long day of work but the weekends are meant for fun! It’s time to break away from our boring routines and take a cue from the warm weather heading our way (high 40’s woohoo!) and get out of the house for a night of good laughs with great friends. When you’re living at The Whittaker you’ve got so much to do right in your neighborhood that it can be tough to choose which is why we always like to make our recommendations. On March 13th head over to Rat’s Restaurant in Hamilton, NJ and check out Helen Angley, a local comic, as she returns for another night of stand-up! The show starts at 8:30 PM and tickets are $25 if purchased by March 6th and $30 if purchased at the door. But that’s not all – no it isn’t, because at The Whittaker the deals are always a little bit sweeter. If you dine at Rat’s Restaurant before the show, a Stephen Starr restaurant, you get 20% of the food portion of your dinner! That means you can have a dinner for two, complete with your own appetizer and entree, for $40!  The best part about it? It’s only 10 minutes from The Whittaker!

So what’s the hold-up? Check out The Whittaker in Trenton, NJ today and learn about how you can really have it all and your own, brand new home! Call or email Claribel Santiago and set up your appointment today! 609-695-3300

The open floor plan of The Whittaker gives you a spacious living room that’s perfect for cozying up with good food, good friends and a good movie.
