U.S. Shelter Homes offers new townhomes from the $160's plans at its sought-after Oak Ridge community. 
The community of Oak Ridge is an quiet enclave of 66 single-family residences and 72 spacious townhomes.  Entering its final phase of development, this impressive community is offering new models available from its Arboretum Series: The Chestnut Town Home designs and four distinctive single-family plans.  Homes start in the $160’s with floor plans ranging from 1,582 to 3,340 square feet.

Nestled near a two-acre park and a scenic walking path, the new Chestnut Townhomes feature low maintenance homeownership, as a professionally managed association cares for lawn maintenance, snow removal and exterior maintenance. These two-story townhomes offer lavish features and amenities including volume ceilings; transom windows offering plenty of natural light; three bedrooms or two bedrooms with an oversized loft; two and a half bathrooms with his and her sinks in the master bath; a spacious kitchen with a large pantry; and a full two-car garage. Additionally, every Chestnut home comes with numerous energy efficient features such as higher efficiency heating & air conditioning equipment and increased insulation to keep you comfortable and your energy bills low.

“At U.S. Shelter we pride ourselves in offering beautiful, efficiently designed homes at reasonable and fair prices, with many different styles available,” said John Sorenson, U.S. Shelter Vice President. “Our unique floor plans at Oak Ridge are specifically designed for affordability and livability with generous open living areas.”

Homebuyers searching for the single-family home lifestyle can select from three, two story designs and one ranch plan in U.S. Shelter’s new Arboretum series, all situated on 14,000+ sq. ft. home sites.  These spacious models boast open layouts that are perfect for new homeowners and growing families alike. Features include a living room, dining room, two and a half baths, a laundry room, a full basement, cedar siding, architectural shingles and an oversized home site.  Each of the four single-family plans offers something for everyone, with options available to suit the preferences of differing buyers and the changing needs of families.

Whether buyers opt for the townhome or the single-family plan, numerous upgrades and other plentiful options are offered which allow even more opportunity to customize floor plans to satisfy individual tastes, including volume or trayed ceilings, fire places, deluxe master bathrooms and an abundance of designer amenities.

With large home sites and generous green space, Oak Ridge is a highly desirable location that combines the appeal of living in a peaceful, private setting with the benefits of nearby conveniences. Characteristics defining the Oak Ridge community include inviting green space, walking paths, manicured grounds, gently winding streets, parks, as well as the prime western suburban location providing easy access to I-90, Metra and a variety of shopping and dining options.  Nestled along the Fox River and recently selected as one of the best places in the country to raise a family by BestLife Magazine, the vibrant and growing city of Elgin offers shopping, dining, nightlife, culture and enlivening activities for all ages.
