Buyers can bring their own floorplans or choose from 17 different home designs at the new Reserve of St Charles community springing up in the western suburbs.
John Hall Homes recently broke ground on 25 of the Reserve’s anticipated 133 custom single-family residences, with an aim to complete these first homes by the end of the year. Five half-acre sites at the 135-acre community have already been claimed, according to co-owner John Hall Jr.
The Reserve, located just across the street from the Fox River, features plenty of open space, ponds, wooded areas, and the largest lots in St Charles. A bike path runs nearby and leads into the Blackhawk County Forest Preserve. St Charles North High School, a neighborhood park, a playground, and a dog park are all within walking distance of the homes.
Should buyers opt for one of John Hall’s home designs, they will be able to choose from ranch and two-story plans with 2,800 to 4,500 square feet, four to five bedrooms, three to five baths, formal living and dining rooms, a family room, a kitchen, and a basement. The Energy Star-rated homes feature wood burning fireplaces with stone faces and custom mantles; full landscaping with paver patios; maple cabinets; stainless-steel appliances; granite countertops; custom benches, bookcases, and millwork; hardwood flooring in the kitchen, hall, and foyer; and low-E windows.
Base prices on lot-plus-home packages range from the $470s to $900s.
