Rapid sales at Rockwell Place in Lakemoor

 With 12 buildings under construction, the William Ryan Homes’ limited edition offering of 18 single-family homes at Rockwell Place has experienced rapid sales.  Now just four homes remain available, with prices starting at $189,990.

 “Rockwell Place is bustling,” said Debbie Beaver, vice president of marketing for William Ryan Homes.  “This community has generated exceptional buyer enthusiasm, with its great location, distinctive home designs and affordable prices.  In addition, our “Buy our home, we’ll lease yours” program has been the key to opening the door to a new home for many of our buyers. Through this program, buyers can lease their existing homes for up to seven years with a 100-percent guarantee. William Ryan Homes offers this program in all of its new home communities.  However, buyers interested in the exceptional values at Rockwell Place should act now because the few remaining opportunities won’t last long.”    

 Across the road from the Lakemoor golf course, Rockwell Place is located at the gateway to the Chain O’ Lakes recreational area.  The community is on Route 120, just 1½ miles west of Rand Road (Ill. Hwy 12).  Rockwell Place is an established neighborhood, and the William Ryan Homes’ homesites are especially scenic New Homes in Lakemoorsince they overlook a wetlands/pond area.

 “Rockwell Place offers country living at its best, close to nature and close to shopping, highways and recreation,” Beaver said.  “The community is great for families and it includes two parks, bicycle and walking paths and open space green belts that ensure scenic sight lines and a pleasant open feeling.”

The community also is served by highly rated schools, including the Big Hollow District 38 elementary and middle schools and District 124 Grant High School. The Lakemoor area is best known for the Volo Bog, a National Natural Landmark area and an Illinois Nature Preserve.  The popular Lakemoor area offers access to commuter train service and major highways.

 Eight two-story floor plans are available, ranging from 1,811 to 3,157 square feet, with three to four bedrooms, two to 2 ½ baths, basements and two and three-car garages.  Base prices range from $189,990 to $248,990, and buyers can select from many  personalizing options including the very popular William Ryan Homes signature morning room.  In addition, William Ryan Homes is a Green Builder who exceeds Energy Star building standards, so buyers will save on energy costs while preserving the environment.

Sarah and Brendon Coari are among the buyers who moved to Rockwell Place by taking advantage of the “Buy our home, we’ll lease yours” program.  “We wanted to purchase a larger home, and we liked Rockwell Place because it is just 10 minutes from our jobs,” Sarah Coari said.  “We hope to sell our other home when the market improves, and in the meantime, we are already enjoying our larger, more luxurious new home.”

The Coaris chose the Sable floor plan, a design with four bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and a two-car attached garage, priced from $210,990.  Highlights include a living room and dining room flanking the foyer, open informal living area with spacious family room, breakfast room and kitchen with pantry, gracious master bedroom with walk-in closet and private bath, three other bedrooms served by hall bath and first-floor laundry room, powder room and mud room leading to the garage.

“We’ve found that William Ryan Homes is great to work with, and they kept us fully informed through every step in the building process, including sending us photos of the progress in construction,” Sarah said.  “Of course, the fact that the company offers a practical way to move without having to sell our other home first made all the difference for us to take advantage of the great value at Rockwell Place.   No wonder Rockwell Place and William Ryan Homes are so popular.”
