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.
According to Robert Meyn, marketing director for Ryland Homes, the traditional Georgian floor plan offers abundant formal and informal living areas as well as an elegant master bedroom suite.
The two-story homes features 2,358 square feet of living space; four large bedrooms; 2 1/2 baths; and two-car attached garage, base-priced from $226,990.
The Georgian is one of two model homes at the community professionally decorated by Letty Rozell, president of Denver-based Designworks.
"Because Fairhills of Canterfield is nestled in a park-like setting with rolling terrain and equestrian stables nearby, the Georgian was decorated in an English Country Garden theme," said Rozell. "Expansive windows and crisp white color scheme give the home an open and airy feeling and hunter green and garnet accents, both in florals and solids, convey the comfortable theme."
The Georgian also features a two-story foyer with formal living room on one side and dining room with tray ceiling on the other; large informal living area with island kitchen and breakfast nook with optional bay window; expansive family room with optional fireplace; master bedroom with large walk-in closet and compartmentalized master bath with separate shower and double-bowl vanity; and first-floor laundry room. 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. …
