Located just east of Route 47 on McConnell Road in Woodstock, The Ponds of Bull Valley offers 219 single-family homes in nine floor plans. The homes range in size from 1,656 to 2,870 square feet and come standard with three to four bedrooms, two to two-and-one-half baths, three-car garages, and partial and full basements, per plan.
“One of the primary reasons buyers are drawn to The Ponds is the community’s bucolic setting, nestled among mature trees, rolling terrain, horse farms and the open green space of an adjacent private golf course,” says Michael Menas, president of Deer Point Homes.
“The tranquil atmosphere offers buyers an opportunity to escape from their fast-paced lives and enjoy the beauty of a rustic setting,” he says. “In the spring and summer, there’s the charm of white picket fences against the green grass on nearby farms. In the fall, residents can marvel at the leaves changing colors. And, in the winter, the snow-covered countryside is gorgeous.”
“We’re often referred to as the ‘best kept secret’ in Woodstock,” adds Menas. “Ponds is tucked away on a country road a couple miles off of Route 47 and away from the traffic congestion and noise. However, it’s only a short drive from all the necessities and conveniences of modern life, such as shopping, good schools, major commuter corridors and a Metra station.”
Not only is the community located in an idyllic setting, but also each home site is designed to maximize the natural surroundings. Half the homes overlook the nearby Bull Valley Golf Course, and only 20 home sites back up to another home.
Another way the developer made the most of the setting was to offer larger than average home sites that come standard with fully sodded yards. Depending upon the homesite a buyer selects, homes can be upgraded with a lookout or walkout basement.
Woodstock also offers numerous cultural and historic attractions, including a town square with boutiques and restaurants, as well as an opera house that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Residents of The Ponds of Bull Valley are served by Woodstock Community School District 200. Public schools include Dean Elementary School, Northwood Middle School and Woodstock High School, while nearby private schools are St. Mary’s Elementary and Middle School and Marion Central High School.
