“The Reserve at Barrington is open for business,” said Angela Milazzo, Sales manager at the community. “As an essential business, we can schedule a private tour in accordance with state COVID-19 guidelines. We even have virtual tours online for our Oak ranch, Alder three-bedroom, Birch four-bedroom, and the Chestnut with a first floor master suite. Clients have really enjoyed using these from the comfort of their home before visiting.”
Foxford Communities has been actively building new homes at The Reserve at Barrington for the past year. Four home designs are offered at The Reserve with a ranch base priced from $475,000 (all prices are subject to change without notice) and two-story homes from the low $500’s. Square footage ranges from 2,050 for a three-bedroom home to 2,601 square feet for a two story home with a first floor master suite.
Two decorated showcase homes are open for touring by appointment and Foxford Communities also has two move-in ready homes available for those with a shorter moving timetable: The Alder two-story with three bedrooms, den and two and one-half baths priced at $499,400 and the Oak ranch at $479,400 with two bedrooms, den and three baths. Both immediate occupancy homes offer numerous upgrades and luxury appointments.
According to Milazzo, the resident profile is wide ranging and comprised of young families, singles and empty nesters residing at The Reserve at Barrington. “Our customers appreciate so many choices to customize their dream home in a low-maintenance, gated neighborhood. And it’s such a great value for new construction in Barrington.”
For the past decade, Hinsdale, IL-based Foxford Communities has specialized in identifying, developing and marketing residential properties in prime Chicago suburban locations. Prior to forming Foxford Communities, firm principals had nearly 100 years of new home construction and land development expertise with the Chicago area’s largest homebuilder at the time; Town and Country Homes, until the firm was sold in 2005. A privately-owned company, Foxford Communities provides the necessary flexibility to work with each homeowner to customize and personalize their home to suit their needs.
Standard features in all homes include gourmet kitchens with oversize islands, stainless steel appliances and quartz or granite countertops; wood flooring, deep pour basements, fully-landscaped home sites and front porches. Depending on the home selected, a first floor master suite, first floor mud room with built-in cubby, second floor laundry, loft and cathedral ceilings are included.
The neighborhood enclave of 43 homes backs up to greenspace and offers a common landscaped park-like seating area with trellises for residents to gather. The Reserve at Barrington is a gated, low maintenance community, where lawn care and snow removal are taken care of for homeowners for a monthly association fee.
