Mill Creek in west suburban Geneva is already known as the “Best Overall Community in the Midwest.” This year, it will become one of the country’s “Best Places to Retire,” according to U.S. News & World Report, following the opening of the new GreenFields of Geneva active-adult and assisted-living community near Mill Creek’s Tanna community.
When completed later this year, GreenFields will feature 147 homes for residents 62 and older. A variety of activities will be in place, ranging from fitness programs to continuing education courses, and residents will have access to everything from housekeeping and linen services to a concierge and on-site beauty salon and barbershop, to name a few, not to mention all of the amenities already in place at Mill Creek.
Although the community is an endeavor separate from Shodeen Residential‘s neighboring Tanna community, Shodeen is eager to see GreenFields’ arrival at Mill Creek. In fact, the developer will host open houses for GreenFields at the Tanna sales center, 0N695 King Dr in Geneva, from 9 a.m. to noon on April 9 and May 6.
The cooperative effort makes sense, says Tanna sales manager Kim Cicero, due to the number of families already living in Mill Creek. “Many buyers who come to Tanna have parents who would like be near their grandchildren,” she says.
At Tanna, Shodeen is offering new homes with three to five bedrooms, two to 3.5 baths, full basements, and fully sodded yards with landscaping packages, starting in the $200s. For more information on these homes and homes offered at Shodeen’s Oakmont community, visit ShodeenHomes.com.
