Lake Geneva, WI – June 5, 2022– Known for its 5,400-acre freshwater lake, 21-mile shore path, beaches and vibrant downtown area, Lake Geneva has long been the playground for Illinois vacationers. With so much to offer, including lower property and sales taxes, Wisconsin has become a popular year-round destination.
“Since opening Stone Ridge phase two in 2019, we’ve enjoyed tremendous success with Illinois buyers, who want to relocate or those wanting to own a vacation getaway, as well as existing Wisconsin residents,” said Craig Shodeen, President of Shodeen Homes. “The same buyer enthusiasm and migratory pattern has led us to open our newest community Edgewood Vistas, not far from Stone Ridge and within walking distance to downtown Lake Geneva.”
Edgewood Vistas, which will include 58 single-family homes when complete, is served by Lake Geneva School District J1, including Badger High School. The community is set among rolling hills and bordered by 2.7 acres of mature trees that will include a future nature walking path.
Ranch and two-story homes are currently priced from the $420s and range from 1,600 to 2,230 square feet in size with three or four bedrooms, two or 2 ½ baths and two or 2 ½-car garages. All homes include full, unfinished basements as well as fully sodded and landscaped homesites.
“The alure of the lake and all it has to offer from boating, skiing, fishing. paddle boarding and more, make Lake Geneva and surrounding Walworth County very desirable for new home buyers,” Shodeen said. “Knowing buyers want to start ‘ lake living’ now, we’re offering homes for summer move-in at Edgewood Vistas.”
