Experience secluded luxury at the beautiful-designed Edward R. James townhomes in the Anets Woods of Northbrook community in Northbrook, IL. This intimate local community is designed with high-end decor and comfort at every turn, comprising 32 homes with four elegant different floor plans. When families or couples settle into one of these homes, they can expect wood flooring, crown moldings, stainless steel appliances, and a vast array of local attractions and activities to partake in. Check out this section of our Edward R. James blog to learn more about the amenities of our communities and to plan your next move!

All models at Anets Woods will feature James Hardie siding, selected for aesthetic appeal, durability, and low-maintenance. Unlike natural cedar which requires nearly annual maintenance, James Hardie siding is a cement-based product and will keep looking good year after year with little to no maintenance.

The New Haven model taking shape at Anets Woods features the same stacked stone used in the perimeter fencing.

Lush landscaping is a hallmark of Edward R. James developments. To immediately enhance privacy and screening for our residents and neighbors large 15′ -18′ evergreens are being installed.



The stacked stone walls at Anets Woods are made from field stone that we import from Pennsylvania. Each piece of stone is painstakingly chiseled by hand and then set in mortar to create a dry stacked look. Using unique materials, like dry set stone, harkens to a time when farmers created fences by stacking the stones found in their fields.

At Edward R. James, we’re known for our landscaping and hardscape. For us, using these premium materials are critical in marrying the architecture to the land.

Ed James, in the business for 60 years has a favorite axiom, ” We build to the land, not on it.” The hardscape and landscape are key parts of perfecting that goal. And when done correctly, the architecture harmonizes with nature and this offers a lasting positive experience for our buyers and the communities in which we build.

Is it easy to achieve and inexpensive? Not at all. But it’s what we think makes our business fun, interesting, challenging, and what sets an ERJames communities apart.
