As construction begins this summer at Hinsdale Meadows, the community is beginning to take shape and we will begin on breaking ground on new home sites. Both the pond and parks are starting to come together as they are essential to the overall development. We are making progress on our Duplex Villa model as we are pouring concrete to form the foundation walls.
We have received the permit from the Village of Hinsdale for our Duplex Villa Model and are beginning the excavation process. Our Duplex Villa model will showcase both our Ashley and Becket floor plans. Also, we have submitted for permit on our Single Family home model that will feature our Torrington floor plan.
Hinsdale was ranked No. 8 among the best places to live in Illinois, according to a new list released by Niche. The village, along with 96 other communities in the state, received an A+ grade on the website’s rankings of best places to live for 2018.
Edward R. James is renowned for outstanding landscaping in all of our communities. The beautification process is well under way at Hinsdale Meadows at the corner of 55th and County Line Road. Mature trees, seasonal flowers, and beautiful natural stone monuments welcome future residents and visitors upon arrival. It’s a great time to take advantage of pre-construction pricing and inquire about current incentives at our a maintenance-free community consisting of 5 elegantly appointed single-family models and 2 duplex villas, all with first floor master bedrooms.
The median sale price of million-dollar-plus homes increased 5.5% to $1.35 million. It was the second consecutive quarterly gain following four quarters in which the median price declined in comparison to the same period one year earlier.
Before breaking ground on the new home sites, lots and lots of dirt needs to be moved, the site graded, and underground utilities installed. Unlike most other builders, Edward R. James begins landscaping the site as early as possible. The perimeter plantings are going in and the site is looking more and more beautiful each day. Come out to our community and see the progress!
