Fall Specials Available at The Lakes of Boulder Ridge
The combination of an exclusive country club lifestyle, ranch-style homes and low maintenance living has been attracting buyers to The Lakes of Boulder Ridge for years. And now that opportunity is coming to a close as fewer than 10 duplexes remain at the Lake In the Hills community.
“The Lakes of Boulder Ridge has been a staple for home shoppers looking for something brand-new in an incredible setting in the Northwest suburbs,” said Scott Ballard, director of homebuilding for the developer, Plote Homes. “It’s been especially popular with empty-nesters who are ready to relax and give up time-consuming yardwork.”
That’s because all lawn maintenance plus individual homesite and common area landscaping is cared for by the homeowners’ association. Monthly fees also cover snow removal in the winter.
“However, once these final duplexes are sold, anyone who’s been on the fence about moving here will have missed their chance,” Ballard said.
Two duplex designs still are available for base prices that range from $325,900 to $356,900. They offer 1,710 to 1,944 square feet of space, two bedrooms, two baths and twocar garages, plus endless possibilities for personalization.
“One of the many reasons buyers choose to build a new home, and a Plote home at The Lakes of Boulder Ridge in particular, is that we offer so many options — more than a typical production builder,” Ballard said.
Owners can enhance interiors with decorative touches such as tray ceilings and crown molding, upgrade with luxury master baths and fireplaces, or add extra living space with family room or dinette bump outs. To maximize their opportunities to customize, Plote Homes is offering $10,000 in free options to new buyers during the month of October.
In addition to providing a wide selection of options, Plote Homes offers a superior level of craftsmanship with countless standard features. Elegant interior appointments include 9-foot ceilings, hardwood flooring, two-panel or six-panel doors, and stainless steel kitchen appliances.
For energy savings, homes are constructed with 2-by-6-inch exterior wall framing, which allows for more batting to create a high R-21 insulation factor. They also have R-49 ceiling insulation, Tyvek exterior house wrap, Pella low-E glass windows, 50-gallon water heaters and high-efficiency furnaces. Outside, homesites are fully sodded and come with professional landscaping.
While the duplexes at The Lakes of Boulder Ridge are approaching sellout, Ballard noted that a select few homesites that accommodate detached, single-family homes still are available. Four single-level layouts are offered with 1,710 to 2,243 square feet of space, two bedrooms, two baths and two-car garages for base prices that range from $389,900 to $425,900.
Plus, Plote Homes offers a selection of already built homes forthose who are ready to move in quickly. Depending on the stage of construction, new-home purchasers may still be able to pick flooring, countertops, fixtures and other finishing details.
The limited-time special of $10,000 in free options is in addition to the builder’s popular free screened-in porch incentive, also available throughout October.
“The screened-in porch allows residents to truly experience the spectacular scenery and country club ambience nearly year-round,” Ballard said. As McHenry County’s premier country club community, the property has so much to offer — most notably the meticulously manicured greens and fairways of the 27-hole Fuzzy Zoeller signature course.
For those who would like to become club members, Plote Homes will cover the initiation fee into the Boulder Ridge Country Club for new buyers this fall. Boulder Ridge Country Club has an active calendar of club events for all ages and members can dine or golf any time, as well as use the club’s outdoor pool, fitness center and tennis courts.
The Lakes of Boulder Ridge is just minutes from the bustling Randall Road corridor, which offers shopping and dining galore. To the west of the property is the Exner Marsh, part of the McHenry County Conservation District. The outdoor area has 1½ miles of trails with scenic overlooks along with a picnic shelter.
Plus, the Lake In The Hills Parks and Recreation Department oversees 31 parks and administers recreational programs, special events, trips and outings for residents.
