Chelsey Crossing, an enclave of 52 maintenance-free luxury townhomes set on a pristine, 15-acre wooded site in Gurnee just north of Route 120 and Hunt Club Road, has recently opened an on-site information center.
Only six residences remain for sale in the community’s first phase, and buyers need to act quickly to take advantage of pre-construction pricing, says Keith Jacobs, president of Jacobs Homes.
“The key to the fast-paced sales at Chelsey Crossing is the amazing property, with mature trees, ponds, a stone bridge, a centrally located park and nature trails,” Jacobs says. “You’re in a convenient location at Route 120 and Hunt Club Road, but once you pull into the community, you’ll feel like you’re miles away from it all in your own private, wooded retreat. The community is close to I-94, lots of shopping, entertainment and recreation, which is important for today’s busy buyer.”
The outdoors are just as revered as indoors at Chelsey Crossing. “To make the most of the acres of mature trees, we’re ‘burying’ 16 of the townhomes in the woods,” Jacobs adds.
Inspired by the site, Chelsey Crossing features three two-story floor plans with three bedrooms, two-and-one-half baths and 2,000 to 2,400 square feet of living space.
“The exteriors of the townhomes were designed to complement the natural beauty of the site,” says Jacobs. “Architecturally interesting elements such as pitched roof lines with distinct gables and octagonal bays have been included to make the homes harmonize with the site’s grandeur.”
Chelsey Crossing’s Gurnee location offers a wide range of conveniences, shopping and recreation. Residents are just minutes from Gurnee Mills, a premier, upscale outlet mall surrounded by dozens of restaurants. The community is served by the area’s exceptional District 50, including Woodland Elementary, Woodland Intermediate, Woodland Middle School and Warren Township High School.
The area’s attractions, entertainment and recreation are balanced by Gurnee’s “hometown” feel that makes it an ideal place to live, Jacobs says.
“Gurnee and the surrounding towns have a history as serving as a summer playground to Chicago’s elite in the early-1900s. Just a few miles to the east is Lake Michigan, and Gurnee is just west of the Chain O’Lakes and Fox River.
The area’s history and past still retain some of that ‘vacation retreat’ charm,” Jacobs continues. “It’s one of the elements that attracts buyers to Gurnee.”
