Townhome shoppers are all smiles in Lisle, now that sales have begun at Villas of the Arboretum Village, a new enclave of four low-maintenance residences located just steps from Lisle’s downtown district.
Don Smyczynski, president of H & D Enterprises Group, developer of the property, expects these distinctive townhomes to be claimed quickly, especially considering their attractive price, prime location and generous standard inclusions.
“The property consists of only a pair of two-unit buildings,” says Smyczynski, who added that one of the four townhomes has already been purchased. “Many townhomes typically have a balcony only off the front or back. What’s distinctive about our villas is that on the side, just off the dinette, each offers an optional balcony or screened porch that overlooks scenic green space. Also, on the lower level, you have the option for a patio. I know of no other property quite like this, with scenic overlooks on the side of the home.”
Lush foliage and open space, in fact, surround both townhome buildings, which are divided by a landscaped green courtyard area between them.
“We could have built three more units on this property and maximized the space, but we opted instead to focus on extra elbow room, picturesque landscaping around the buildings and bountiful visual charm,” he notes. “Plus, each townhome is an end unit, allowing for added privacy and extra window visibility.”
Each townhome provides three levels of living: a main floor with a great room, kitchen, dinette and powder room; an upstairs with a master bedroom served by a walk-in closet, two secondary bedrooms, and two full baths; plus a lower level with a two-car garage and adjacent optional rec room. Among the standard amenities are custom cabinetry and spacious pantry in the kitchen, central A/C, vinyl windows, nine-foot ceilings and 1,807 square feet of living space. Options include a finished rec room; patio, screened porch or deck; and vaulted ceiling in the master bedroom.
Each townhome is preconstruction base priced from $249,990. A small monthly homeowner’s association fee covers lawn care and exterior maintenance.
“These villas appeal to a wide array of buyers, from first-time purchasers to empty nesters to professional singles,” says Smyczynski, who noted that first deliveries on the units are expected in spring 2011.
What’s more, the Villas of the Arboretum Village is ideally situated within a coveted Lisle location. It’s only steps away from the Lisle Metra station and downtown attractions along Main Street, and it’s just a few minutes from I-355 and I-88.
“Everything you could desire is right here,” Smyczynski says. “That includes shops and restaurants in the revitalized downtown area, a brand new park, playground and pond within walking distance, the famous Morton Arboretum, Sea Lion Aquatic Park, and the River Bend Golf Course, which is rated one of Chicagoland’s top 10 nine-hole courses.”
Plus, he says, there are wonderful annual events and traditions that residents love, such as the Downtown Lisle French Market, Lights of Lisle during the holiday season, the Depot Days historical family fest, and hot air balloon launches during the Eyes to the Skies Festival.
