Surprise! The developer Toll Brothers has re-started construction of Patriot Commons at The Glen in Glenview Illinois. This townhome and condo development kicked off with huge crowds and many first day buyers several years ago. After completing much of the development Toll Brothers stopped construction when the real estate market collapsed. But now, with little fanfare, orders are once again being taken for new construction townhomes.
You’ve heard the real estate mantra, “location, location, location”. Well, Patriot Commons has one of the finest locations on Chicagoland’s North Shore. The development borders The Glen Club’s 18 hole championship golf course designed by Tom Fazio, and it is but a very short walk to Glen Town Center. GTC is The Glen’s shopping and dining “main street” where one can find wonderful restaurants, bistros, a pub and numerous retail stores and boutiques. It’s also only a block or two from Gallery Park, Lake Glenview and the Glenview Park Center with pools and a full health club.
Three townhome models will be constructed in this next phase of the development. For buyers looking for a first floor master bedroom, the Hargrove model fits the bill. It is a one level (first floor) home with two bedrooms, two baths, a lovely covered porch, and a below grade garage.
The Brantley model offers three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a study, loft, and balcony.
The Randall model is a more traditional townhome design with two levels. The first floor is the main living area with a living room, family room, dining room, kitchen and powder room. The second floor offers three bedrooms and two baths, one of which is located in the master suite.
Home prices range from the $400’s to the $700’s. Construction will begin soon with anticipated delivery in 2015. At a future date the final building in the development will be offered for sale, and it will be composed of condos.
