SYCAMORE, IL –January 7, 2021– The continued popularity of open concept single-level living has led Shodeen Homes, a family owned and operated builder for 60 years, to introduce the Hickory ranch plan, priced from $281,100, at Reston Ponds and Heron Creek in Sycamore.
The Hickory, with 1,613 square feet of living space as well as a full, unfinished basement is ideal for first-time buyers, right-sizers and everyone in between,” said Anna Harmon, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Shodeen Homes. “The open-concept ranch plan with three bedrooms and two full baths maximizes practical living space. Buyers who choose to finish their basement-either with Shodeen or after move-in- nearly double the size of their home.”
Additional highlights of the Hickory plan include, 9-foot ceilings, kitchen island with dining area open to the great room with optional fireplace, master bedroom suite with walk-in closet and private bath, two additional bedrooms served by a full hall bath and attached two-car garage. Buyers may choose to finish their basement with Shodeen Homes by adding a recreation room and full bath.
Located just north of I-88 and east of Peace Road, Reston Ponds features 15-acres of parks, 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.
The community is within walking distance of charming 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 and Ribs, Rhythm and Brew Fest add to endless summer fun.
In addition to the new Hickory plan, buyers may choose from a collection or ranch and two-story plans ranging from 1,613 to 2,595 square feet in size with 3 or 4 bedrooms, two or 2 ½ baths, full basements and two-car garages priced from the $281,100 to $312,500.
“We understand that a home is an investment in the future and stand behind our homes with a 1,5 and 10-year warranty program,” Harmon 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. 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.”
Reston Ponds is five miles north of I-88 and just east of Peace Road. The sales center is at 437 E. Becker in Sycamore. To schedule an appointment, please call (877) 901-5151 or visit Shodeenhomes.com. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram & Twitter.
