12-Acre Neighborhood Park Underway at Reston Ponds in Sycamore

  SYCAMORE, IL – June 10, 2021– A 12-acre Sycamore Park District Park is underway at Reston Ponds, a Shodeen Homes’ community located just north of I-88 and east of Peace Road in Sycamore.

“We’ve seeded and graded the area and look forward to its future development by the Sycamore Park District,” said Craig Shodeen, President of Shodeen Homes, a family owned and operated company celebrating its 60th year in home building. “Parks encourage active lifestyles, community engagement and help maintain the quality of the community. In addition to promoting wellness and activity, parks add to the overall property value of the neighborhood and the larger Sycamore community.”

According to the Sycamore Park District website,  a public input meeting will be scheduled in the future and allow residents to provide input on amenities they would like to see included.

In addition to the new 12-acre park,  Reston Ponds features six ponds and South East Elementary School, part of Sycamore School District 427,  which was rated in the top 10% among more than 500 school districts in the state of Illinois.

Shodeen currently offers a collection of ranch and two-story homes ranging from 1,613 to 2,595 square feet in size with three or four bedrooms, two or 2 ½ baths, island kitchens open to family rooms, basements and two-car or optional three-car garages.

“Current market conditions are making it difficult for buyers to purchase a resale home,” Shodeen said.  “However, with new construction, you avoid a bidding war, choose your home design and homesite, take advantage of today’s most popular home trends and lock in your price at time of contract.”

Homes for quick delivery include:

The 1,617-square foot Hickory ranch plan at 120 Reston Court,  includes three bedrooms, two baths, full basement and 2.5 car-garage.  The island kitchen with 42-inch cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless-steel appliances is open to the great room with fireplace, wide-plank Inhaus laminate flooring throughout, upgraded tile in baths, upgraded lighting package and 17-by-20-foot concrete patio.

The 1,974-square-foot, two-story Augusta II at 414 MaryAnn Circle, features a pond view, three bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, full basement with bath rough-in and 2.5-car garage.  Peninsula-island kitchen with 4-foot kitchen dining area extension, 42-inch cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless-steel appliances,  great room with fireplace, wide-plank Inhaus laminate flooring throughout the first floor, study and master bedroom suite with private bath and walk-in closet.

The 2,019-square-foot, two-story Berquist with Craftsman exterior at 1036 Bailey Road, includes an island kitchen with 42-inch cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless-steel appliances open to the great room with fireplace, wide-plank Inhaus laminate flooring, study, master bedroom suite with private bath and walk-in closet, loft and 13-by-21-foot concrete patio.

Reston Ponds is within walking distance of downtown Sycamore with a variety of shops and restaurants and is minutes from the I-88 employment corridor, Northern Illinois University and Kishwaukee Hospital, part of Northwestern Medicine. The Sycamore Park District operates the public golf course, community pool and splash park as well as a community center and fitness facility.  Summer festivals, such as the DeKalb Corn Fest, Northern Illinois Art Show

“We understand that a home is an investment and stand behind our homes with a 1,5 and 10-year warranty program,” Shodeen said.  “In addition, we build our homes to exceed energy-efficient standards, testing each house for air infiltration.  We use spray foam in rim joists and detailed air sealing of the home’s enclosure as well as insulate basement walls. An energy-efficient new home costs much less to operate, and our homes are typically 40% more efficient than a home built just 10 years ago.”
