The good old summertime has never been more inviting than at charming West Point Gardens, the popular master-planned community in the Randall Road corridor on the upscale west side of Elgin. Presently, three homes for immediate delivery provide the opportunity to move in and enjoy the season.
Award-winning West Point Gardens, with its winding streets, parks and greenways and homes with large front porches, is highlighted by the state-of-the-art homes in four series that have made the Traditional Neighborhood Design community so popular.
“The homes at West Point Gardens have been designed to maximize the convenience of indoor-outdoor living,” said Pat Curran, president of West Point Builders and developer of West Point Gardens. “Whether buyers opt for homes with private rear gardens or homes that offer activity-sized back yards with garages in the front, West Point Gardens has a friendly atmosphere that encourages outdoor relaxation and evening strolls along the wide sidewalks. Interested buyers should act quickly because these homes have even more appeal in the warm weather seasons.”
Among the advantages that have brought so many residents to West Point Gardens are four series of homes that offer extensive choices in style, size and prices. Selections range from the innovative and affordable Park Series to the upscale Kingston Series.
“In addition to a Clark design in the Park Series and the Princeton in the Heritage Series, a Middlebury design has been completed for quick delivery, also in the Heritage Series,” Curran said. “These homes have upgraded features and are priced attractively.”
The Heritage Series is notable for its gracious front porches, private fenced gardens and two-car garages located to the rear of the home. Base-priced from $249,990 to $284,990, the Heritage Series homes have three or four bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, partial basements and two-car attached garages.
The Middlebury for quick delivery overlooks Meier Park, the focal point of the community. This home includes three bedrooms and a large loft, 2 ½ baths, a shady extended front porch for those summer evenings, full basement and two-car garage located in the rear.
Other highlights include a large kitchen with pantry and large island overlooking a private fenced yard plus a living room, formal dining room, family room also overlooking the yard, master bedroom and deluxe master bath with soaking tub and separate shower plus the laundry room and garage access in step-saving proximity to the kitchen. The Middlebury for quick delivery is priced at $301,845.
In addition, a Clark design in the Park Series is offered for immediate delivery, and has two bedrooms and a loft, 2 ½ baths and a free full finished basement, priced at $200,375. A Princeton design in the Heritage Series, a two-story plan with a first-floor master bedroom, is priced at $349,990.
Buyers of these homes will find that casual moments with the family or summertime entertaining is convenient.
“Morning coffee in the secluded garden or a big back yard barbecue are activities that are equally easy to accomplish in these well-planned homes,” Curran said. “The home designs complement the way people live today, with space concentrated in high priority areas oriented to the outdoors and architecture that conveys a comfortable, cozy feeling. This is a community where residents can really feel at home, indoors and out.”
Many outdoor activities center on Meier Park, the 12-acre area for sports competitions, playground activities and gathering with neighbors. Meier Park features baseball and soccer fields, tennis and basketball courts and playground equipment plus a gazebo and covered pavilion. Bicycle paths connect Meier Park with several smaller parks, and also join the Fox Valley bike path that leads to a neighborhood shopping center. Children attend the highly rated Burlington #301 schools.
In addition to the Heritage Series, the other three series of homes include:
The Park Series, priced from $174,990 to $202,990, offering mortgage payments (principle and interest) lower than area rents. These detached townhomes have gained international attention for combining the privacy of a detached single-family home with freedom from exterior maintenance. Four two-story floor plans feature two to three bedrooms, 1 ½ to 2 ½ baths, and some plans have flexible second floors and available lofts. The homes also include covered porches, nine-foot first-floor ceilings, full basements and two-car garages attached in the rear.
The Classic Series, notable for large back yards and garages in the front of the homes. A ranch plan and six two-story designs offer three or four bedrooms, two baths in the ranch plan and 2 ½ baths in the two-story homes, partial basements and two-car attached garages. Three bedroom plans may have a fourth bedroom option, and buyers can add fireplaces, sun rooms and other features to personalize the homes. Base prices range from $244,990 to $299,990, and sites are available overlooking a pond.
The Kingston Series executive homes also have the large front porches, private garden areas and two-car garages attached in the rear. Five floor plans range from three to five bedrooms, with 2 ½ baths and partial basements. Base prices range from $281,990 to $329,990.
