To help its potential homebuyers imagine what it would be like to live in one of its maintenance-free, ranch single-family homes, Epcon Communities has opened a professionally decorated Portico model at Fox Run in Plainfield. This stand-alone ranch home with a base price of $219,990 has 1,755 square-feet of stair-free living space and features 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, den and 2.5 car attached garage. A 455 square-foot fenced in private courtyard, a covered porch off the master bedroom suite, and architecturally significant ceilings are also on display.
“Our new Portico model is a great representation of the three stand-alone, single-family ranch homes that we recently introduced at Fox Run,” stated Jamie Wilcox, developer/builder for Epcon Communities. “No other builder in Illinois offers the lifestyle to be found in our new home. We are the only place for homebuyers to go to if they are looking for a single-family ranch home set in an extensively landscaped, yet maintenance-free environment.”
The attractive Portico model, which has two bedrooms, den, and two full baths is open for review now. The Portico’s living room has tray ceilings and a virtual wall of windows that provide views of the home’s private, professionally landscaped courtyard. The model also features a formal dining room with tray ceilings and a three-panel patio door that provides views of and access to the landscaped courtyard.
From the home’s kitchen, the chef of the family can remain part of conversations taking place in the living room or dining room because both of those rooms flow uninterrupted into the kitchen. If friends or family want to watch a meal being prepared or simply want to chat one-on-one with the chef of the day, there is a spacious food preparation island that has enough counter space set aside for three or four breakfast bar stools. To ease the preparation of meals, the stunning kitchen is furnished with Merillat cabinetry, a conveniently located food pantry, and high-quality GE appliances (gas range, dishwasher and garbage disposal).
This home also includes a spacious master bedroom suite with beautiful recessed tray ceiling and large windows topped by a transom window. The master bedroom suite has access to a large walk-in closet and a private bathroom furnished with a linen closet, an oversized dual bowl bath vanity with cultured marble top, and a large oversized shower with built-in bench.
The interior of this and every other home in Fox Run features ceramic flooring, full-size laundry room, central air conditioning, energy-efficient gas forced air heating, quick recovery 50-gallon water heater, and all rooms are pre-wired for cable television and telephones.
Some families have already discovered the stand-alone ranch homes in Plainfield and 10 of them have already been sold. Currently three unique floor plans are offered within Fox Run. Epcon’s free-standing series of 1,516-2,873 square-foot ranch homes with private courtyards do not share a common wall with any neighbors and are base priced from $204,990 to $229,990.
In addition to the single-family stand-alone homes, Epcon also offers ranch villa homes. These homes are set in a building that consists of four ranch homes arranged in a pinwheel format. Instead of being laid out four in a row like those found in a typical townhome community, Epcon’s unique, privacy sensitive attached ranch homes are arranged around a central pivot point, thus a homeowner only shares one common wall with its neighbors. With this arrangement each attached ranch home lives like an “end unit.” The result is a building, that when viewed from any perspective, looks like a high-end, large square-footage, custom single-family home. All materials found on the building’s exterior have been carefully selected to create a high-quality appearance yet minimize future maintenance.
At this time Epcon Communities, has a variety of attached ranch homes for sale. Villa ranch homes provide 1,137 to 1,886 square feet of living space and are priced from $179,990 to $219,990.
Purchasing a single-family or attached villa ranch home at Fox Run also gives homebuyers the privilege of using the community’s private 3,000 square-foot clubhouse and heated swimming pool. Within the clubhouse residents will find a professionally decorated social room (with fireplace, big screen TV and a pool table), fully equipped kitchen, fitness center, shower-equipped restroom facilities and a meeting room.
Fox Run is open Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. and is located off Route 59 and Dayfield Drive, one mile south of Renwick Road and one mile north of Caton Farm Road. For more information call 815-609-0150 or visit www.EpconCommunities.com.
