If wedding bells are in your future during 2017, buy a single-family home at popular West Point Gardens for spring delivery and have your home furnished and ready to move into after the big day.
With four series of single-family homes starting at $177,990, award-winning West Point Gardens has become popular for its Traditional Neighborhood Design that offers small-town living near major highways and other conveniences. The master-planned community features winding streets, and an expansive central park as well as smaller parks and greenways.
Like the small towns of yesteryear, the homes have large front porches and wide sidewalks to foster walkability, and most homes feature garages in the rear and private gardens.
“It is not too early for couples to purchase a home if that is part of their wedding plans,” said Pat Curran, president of West Point Builders and developer of West Point Gardens. “Many first-time homebuyers who are just married or about to be married are purchasing homes in the community, and three of the available series are attainable for many first-time buyers while the Park Series homes are very affordable.
An outstanding neighborhood atmosphere centers on 12-acre Meier Park, which includes 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. The highly rated Burlington #301 schools serve the community.
“With its variety of homes, West Point Gardens is a neighborhood where residents can put down roots and move up within the community as their needs evolve,” Curran said. “It is easy to make friends during park activities or while taking an evening walk around the neighborhood and greeting neighbors who are relaxing on their front porches. West Point Gardens has been especially designed to foster a friendly community spirit, and since the community is now well-established it is easy to visit and experience the atmosphere.”
The innovative Park Series, with prices ranging from $174,990 to $205,990, offers the great advantage of mortgage payments (initial principle and interest) that are lower than area rents. These West Point Builders-designed homes have attracted international attention for their combination of single-family space and privacy plus townhome-like freedom from exterior maintenance.
