Fairhills in West Dundee Combines Elegent and Contemporary Designs


Reminiscent of classic New England colonial architecture, the elegant Georgian design blends contemporary flair with traditional design elements at Fairhills of Canterfield in West Dundee.

Being developed on a portion of the historic Haeger Pottery family estate, Fairhills of Canterfield is a private community of 122 luxury single-family homes, situated on rolling 1/2-acre home sites. Home prices range from $219,990 to $258,990 and only 23 homes remain in phases I and II.

The private community features a distinctive boulevard entry accented with brick pillars and wrought iron gates. The picturesque hillside entrance is flanked on two sides by scenic ponds. Antique streetlights and designer mailboxes also add to the charming atmosphere.

The Georgian model home is shown with an optional sunroom, creating a sunny retreat to view of the wooded surroundings.

"The community features extensive landscaping which complements the surrounding trees and natural foliage," said Meyn. "In addition, the rolling terrain of the land plan allows for walkout and English lower levels and homes feature side loading garages for a more attractive streetscape. …
