With master bedroom suites on the main levels of two plans, it’s not surprising that the Pacific Series at Water’s Edge in Grayslake are popular with buyers looking to downsize now that their children have moved out.
Located along the northwestern shores of Gages Lake, Water’s Edge features a private sandy beach, as well as a central open space area ringed with trees and a nearby pond with a walking path running in between. For boating enthusiasts there is a boat launch for the exclusive use of residents, and individual boat slips are available.
“The Pacific Series has been particularly popular with empty-nesters who want to downsize from a single-family home without giving up too much space, and enjoy the benefits of maintenance-free living,” says Douglas R. Brown, president of Cambridge Homes. “Buyers who desire this type of luxury townhome in a unique resort style setting will need to act soon while there are still Pacific Series homes available,” Brown says. The homes will feature maintenance-free living with the exterior maintenance, landscaping, lawn care, snow removal and hazard insurance provided for a monthly fee. Home series are being built in groups of four and five homes in brick accented buildings.
Water’s Edge is served by Woodland Primary/Middle School District 50 and Warren Towns Township High School District 121. The community is near the southeast intersection of Gages Lake Road and Route 45 in Grayslake, placing it a short stroll away from the College of Lake County main campus and minutes from the numerous amenities offered in Grayslake and Gurnee including several golf courses, the Warren Township Center that features a new skate park, and the Gurnee community aquatic center. Additionally, Six Flags Great America and Gurnee Mills are less than 15 minutes away.
The sales center, located at 18887 West Gages Lake Rd., Grayslake, Ill., is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday through Thursday, and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday. Call 847.984.4433, or visit www.mycambridgehome.com for more information.
