Home shoppers desiring a one-of-a-kind personalized residence in a picturesque and preferred setting can now head to Walnut Ridge, an all-new community in Cary that will feature five completely custom homes designed and built by Verseman Development.
Located a half mile east of Rt. 14 in a heavily landscaped and quiet cul-de-sac, Walnut Ridge has four one-third-acre homesites on which a custom home can be crafted by Verseman Development. Additionally, a Verseman luxury inventory home will be ready for move-in by early November.
“This is a wonderful, scenic location that features a charming streetscape, attractive Walnut trees and lush foliage. It’s an infill-type property situated within a mature area of Cary that features many older existing homes, so this is a well-established part of town with friendly neighbors and beautiful residences,” said Jeff Holz, co-owner of Cary-based Verseman Development.
What’s more, he said, it’s within close proximity of Cary-Grove High School, a Metra Station that whisks commuters downtown in about an hour, and the beautiful downtown district along Main Street in Cary.
Home-plus-lot packages at Walnut Ridge start from $500,000 (all prices subject to change without notice).
One lucky buyer who wants to be settled in before the end of the year can claim a spec home ready for early November occupancy. Set at 5 Walnut Ridge Ct., this two-story beauty offers four bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, full basement with nine-foot ceilings, and approximately 3,000 square feet. Other highlights include a spacious family room with a cathedral ceiling and floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace; oak hardwood flooring in select areas; tray ceiling in the master bedroom; master bath with an oversized shower and Whirlpool tub; three-car garage; 30-year architectural shingles; decorative front paver walkway; professional landscape package; and village sewer and water. The home is priced at $549,900.
“The centerpiece of this home is its gourmet kitchen, which is loaded with nice touches,” said Holz. These include custom maple perimeter cabinets topped with a silk finish and taupe glaze that contrast nicely with a maple island sporting a darker Sienna finish; a tumbled stone backsplash; handsome granite countertops; stainless steel appliances; recessed accent lighting; undercabinet lighting; and pendant lighting over the island.
“Additionally, this home showcases the type of signature millwork and fine woodworking detail that Verseman is renowned for. Notably, it has wainscoting in the foyer, staircase and second floor hall, elegant crown molding in the foyer, dining room and den, a custom-milled staircase that greets you as you enter the foyer, and larger baseboards and casing throughout the home,” Holz said.
Walnut Ridge homeowners will enjoy a bounty of Cary amenities, including tree-lined streets and plentiful parks, six shopping centers, and easy accessibility to Crystal Lake shopping and Algonquin Commons mall.
Verseman also has 10 half-acre-sized homesites remaining on which a 100 percent custom single-family home can be built at Lyons Ridge in Cary, located 2.5 miles east of Rt. 14 and Three Oaks Road. This property includes city sewer and water service, an attractive land plan with scenic cul-de-sacs, sidewalks, a tot lot, and extensive neighborhood landscaping. Home plus lot packages there are priced from the mid $400,000s.
Sales for Walnut Ridge and Lyons Ridge are being conducted by appointment only. To reach the Walnut Ridge inventory home once it opens in November, take Rt. 14 (Northwest Highway) to Three Oaks Road and turn east; head a half mile to Walnut Ridge Court and turn north; proceed to the home at 5 Walnut Ridge Court.
