Time is running out for single-family homebuyers who want to take advantage of pre-construction pricing at Oak Ridge, the U.S. Shelter community on the east side of Elgin.
“The location of Oak Ridge on Lake Street, two miles west of Route 59, has been a major selling point with many buyers who desire greater convenience than is provided in communities on the west side of Elgin,” says Jack Sorenson, president of U.S. Shelter.
In addition, the homes at Oak Ridge are competitively priced, and buyers have more flexibility to modify floor plans and customize the homes than is typically available in this price range.
The Classic Series of single-family homes, set on sites of approximately 7,500 to 11,000 square feet, features a ranch and three two-story designs ranging in size from approximately 1,874 to 2,639 square feet with two bedrooms and a den in the ranch to three or four bedrooms or a loft in the two-story plans; two to two-and-one-half baths; basements with eight-foot walls and two-car attached garages.
The Estate Series includes a ranch and a pair of two-story plans set on homesites of approximately 14,000 square feet.
