New Listings Offering 3D Tours Now Available at

February 15, 2016 Turpin Real Estate

Reflecting a long-standing commitment to provide buyers and sellers with cutting-edge digital enhancements, Turpin is investing in new technology to showcase its listings. We recently partnered with Matterport–and a service provider called Planomatic—to host interactive 3D property tours on our website. This feature can be found on select individual listing pages, including two spectacular Somerset County luxury properties located in Bernardsville and Bridgewater.

“Our partnership with Matterport is part of our journey into different platforms that benefit both our buyers and sellers,” said John Turpin, President of Turpin Realtors. “Our agents love to open beautiful homes to visitors as often as possible, but with so many potential buyers house-hunting on the Internet, this is a great way to have an incredibly realistic virtual visit from the comfort of your own home. For example, our listings at 1 Owens Court in Bridgewater and 111-113 Lloyd Road in Bernardsville are excellent representations of these detailed 3D tours. We feel they give our listings a whole new level of exposure, which in turn benefits our sellers.”

Visit our listing at 1 Owens Court here: Set on a hilltop in the scenic Martinsville section of Bridgewater Township, this exceptional five bedroom, five bath Colonial combines Old World craftsmanship, modern amenities and smart technology. Surrounded by 0.85± acre of manicured grounds, the 4,925 square-foot home has an open floor plan of 14 rooms arranged on three finished levels. Highlights include expansive gathering spaces, an impressive chef’s kitchen featuring granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and radiant-heated Travertine stone floors, a private master suite of rooms and a detailed lower level offering a handcrafted bar and woodwork, a stone fireplace and wine cellar. This prime Somerset County location is about 45 minutes from New York City.

Visit our listing at 111-113 Lloyd Road in Bernardsville here:  Tower Farm on the Bernardsville Mountain is a striking residential compound. At its center is a wonderfully renovated circa 1820 bank-style Colonial overlooking a tranquil pond. Additional buildings include a three-bedroom farmhouse dating to the early 1800s, a classic red barn with car space, a clay tile silo, a detached two-car garage dedicated to the farmhouse and a pool house serving the pool. Both the home and the farmhouse/guest house have been extensively updated through the years, with numerous restorations as well as upgrades made as recently as 2014. Truly a landmark property, Tower Hill presides over 11± serene acres of green lawns, specimen plants and woodlands. Accessed by a long entrance drive, the unique clapboard Colonial was originally a bank barn; it now contains six bedrooms, four full and one half baths. 

The high-tech virtual home tours are user-friendly and allow the potential buyers to get a better sense of the home’s flow. It also allows them to zoom in on special features like moldings, bath fixtures, kitchen features or a fireplace surround. “The 3D tours really are the next best thing to being there,” Turpin said. “It’s easy to navigate between floors and rooms using this innovative technology. We feel this is an ideal way to introduce new listings to our clients, and we expect it to result in many future ‘in-person’ appointments.”

The company develops technology to create, modify, navigate and share immersive spaces in VR, web, and mobile apps.
