Our Heritage

For many decades our company has demonstrated expertise in locating and acquiring choice forests and woodlands on Long Island. Through the development process, we literally transform these magnificent forests into award-winning, ultra-luxury, single family home communities which coexist in harmony with nature.

Our Philosophy

We are deeply committed to unsurpassed craftsmanship and a “customer comes first” philosophy. The home builders and contractors we work with are widely acknowledged as being among the finest craftsmen in Long Island’s residential markets. Immaculate attention is given to every conceivable detail in our homes. Nature’s materials of wood, stone, and land converge with the latest in artistic designs and the results are simply the most stunning brand new homes your family has ever experienced.

Our Values

We pride ourselves in using hyper-green construction technologies and products. We believe in providing our customers with straight and clear answers, and in helping them with practical thinking and planning concerning their homes, financing options and their new home delivery times. We dedicate time, talent, and financial support to strengthen our communities and support a wide variety of charities which involve hospitals and medical research for children, law enforcement, firemen, and religious institutions.

The Bradley Family

It was an excellent experience working with Robert Merolla through the entire process of our brand new house construction. From day one Rob showed us a range of houses within a new development with precise expertise, positive can-do mentality and easy accessibility. His knowledge and confidence in the house he recommend not only peaked our interest, aided our decision to go into contract. Throughout the months while the house was in construction Rob was always available for any questions we had either via text or onsite. His response times were always prompt and friendly. He would send us videos of the progress periodically which was a very nice touch of genuine care. We would highly recommend Rob in the future for anyone who maybe in the market for a house. His expertise and pristine customer service is not only reflective in reviews, but in the sheer amount of houses he sells. There’s a reason why he’s the leading man in not only the development we live in, but multiple house developments in progress. On behalf of the Bradley family we sincerely appreciate working with you and look forward to working with you in the future! The Bradley family– bought a new home at Majestic Pines.

The Repice Family

It was a pleasure to work with Rob and couldn’t ask for a more knowledgeable and nice Real Estate professional. I would definitely recommend Rob to anyone looking for an excellent Real Estate salesperson. At the closing of my house, the 2 other Real Estate professionals that were there for the buyer of my house told me that Rob was great to work with and that he knew what he was doing and was helpful to them. The Repice family – sold their existing home and bought a new home at Majestic Pines.

The Kaplan Family

I met Rob through a New construction that was to be built. He led me through the process and made me feel very comfortable taking on a huge task of building a home, upgrades, different models and proper mortgage steps. From start to finish Rob helped me and my family make the decision that was right for us. He set the ground work and kept us up to date on every step of the process. – The Kaplan family – bought a new home in Mt. Sinai.

The Rodriguez Family

Robert and his entire team at Modern Age Home Builder’s are amazing to work with. I am not easily impressed and I can’t say enough good things about our experience working with them to build our new home in Medford. Robert is a true expert in new construction and we were so lucky to have met him. Peter and the construction team did an outstanding job on our home and kept us informed every step of the way. Getting a loan through one of the preferred lenders was also a top-notch experience and the rates were better than the bank I was previously working with. We wanted to sincerely thank you all for your patience and expertise and you really made my family feel special. We love our home and will recommend you to anyone looking for a new home. – The Rodriguez family – bought a new home in Medford.
