Edward R. James Companies is proud to announce the closeout of another successful community—Brighton Mews, our 29-unit luxury townhome development in the heart of Park Ridge, Ill. Key to the community’s fast sales pace—it sold out in less than two years—was the rare opportunity to buy new construction in this sought-after, inner-ring suburb just steps from the community’s bustling downtown.
According to Jerry S. James, president of Edward R. James Companies, many of Brighton Mews’ buyers were attracted to Park Ridge’s urban vibe and small-town charm, and were pleased to find a vibrant community like Brighton Mews right at its center. “Park Ridge draws residents to the beauty of its tree-lined streets, exceptional schools, and ample shopping and recreation,” he said. “We found Brighton Mews appealed to empty-nesters seeking walkable, high-end maintenance-free living as well as young professionals who left the city for a thriving, yet affordable, urban location with access to public transportation, entertainment and recreation.”
Located at Northwest Highway and Washington Street, Brighton Mews offered four floor plans with three bedrooms, 2½ baths, and a two-car garage accessible through a lower level. High main floor ceilings and rear private decks that connect to a screened-in porch or optional den adjacent to the kitchen were a big draw for buyers, as were the homes’ quality interior finishes, such as hardwood flooring and granite countertops. The townhomes were priced from the upper $400,000s.
Brighton Mews was awarded two Gold Key 2016 Awards from the Homebuilders Association of Greater Chicago (HBAGC) in the Townhome and Duplex category for Excellence in Architectural Design and Excellence in New Construction, and one for Excellence in Community Design in the category of Landscape Design.
