Construction to Start Soon on Darien Town Homes
Pre-construction sales have begun at Woodmere, a 253-unit town home and court home community in west suburban Darien.
Sales at the 39-acre community will be conducted from a trailer on the site on the east side of Lemont Road between 75th Street and Plainfield Road, said Ed Havlik, president of Rolling Meadows-based United Homes.
"The Woodmere community will feature town home and court home product lines designed for first-time purchasers, move-up and move-down buyers," Havlik said.
Construction is scheduled to be started on the first phase of homes in late summer.
Don Schroeder, vice president of sales for United Homes, said the company's architects designed totally new floor plans for the 124-unit town home phase of Woodmere.
The raised ranch town homes will feature two to four bedrooms, two to 2 1/2 baths and 1,467 to 2,200 square feet of living area.
"Each town home will have a living and dining room, master bedroom suite with private bath and a two-car garage," Schroeder said. "A lower level can be finished off to include family room and master suite with bath or den."
An optional basement also is available in the town homes. Base prices will start from $151,900 to $208,900.
Living areas of the town homes feature wall-to-wall carpeting, smoke detectors, Colonist six-panel doors and white painted trim. Ceramic tile or parquet flooring is standard in the foyer.
Oak hand rails and balusters also are optional.
Town home kitchens are equipped with continuous-clean gas range with electronic ignition, vented range hood, three-cycle dishwasher with energy saver and heavy-duty food disposer.
All kitchens come equipped with a double-bowl sink with Moen single-lever faucet with spray and easy-care no-wax tile flooring. Decorator wood cabinets and a choice of decorator countertops also are standard.
Cultured marble vanity tops with integral bowls, Moen single-lever faucets, medicine cabinets, vanity-size mirrors and decorator wood cabinets in baths are available per plan.
Ceramic tile floors and tub surrounds are standard in hall and master bath. …
