Lake Geneva, WI – March 3, 2022 – Shodeen Homes, a family-owned and operated home builder for more than 60 years, is introducing Edgewood Vistas, a new Lake Geneva, Wisconsin community of 58 homesites.
“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. “We anticipate the same buyer enthusiasm at Edgewood Vistas where buyers are just 90 minutes to Chicago, less than an hour from Milwaukee and are within walking distance of downtown Lake Geneva.”
Edgewood Vistas, off Elkhorn Road (Highway H) and Edgewood Drive, 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 priced from the $420s and range from 1,556 to 2,230 square feet in size with three or four bedrooms, two or 2 ½ baths, basements and two or 2 ½-car garages.
“Shodeen is excited to be partnering again with the City of Lake Geneva on this new community development,” said David Patzelt, Shodeen Construction President. “To enhance the partially developed property, which has been vacant since 2008, Shodeen will be replacing the existing watermain and sewers. A contribution has been paid that will help fund a significant portion of the costs for the City of Lake Geneva to raise their existing water tower, which will aid in increasing the city’s water pressure. Shodeen has appreciated its partnership with the City Lake Geneva, which started with Stone Ridge and has continued as we’ve worked with the city the past six months to bring Edgewood Vistas to fruition.”
The two-story Berquist model at 1620 Monte Vista Drive is under construction at Edgewood Vistas and offers 2,019 square feet of living space with three bedrooms and a loft, 2 ½ baths, study, island kitchen open to the two-story great room, master bedroom suite with tray ceiling, walk-in closet and private bath, two secondary bedrooms served by a full hall bath, basement and attached 2 1/2-car garage. Buyers may also choose to build the Berquist as a four-bedroom home.
Standard features that are included in every home are wide plank engineered wood flooring in kitchens, foyers and powder rooms, 36” Aristokraft kitchen cabinets with granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances, painted trim, baseboards and six-panel doors, ceramic tile flooring in bathrooms and a 1, 5 and 10 year warranty program.
Energy-efficient features include a house wrap air infiltration barrier system, 92% energy efficient forced air gas furnace, high-efficiency central air conditioning, Energy Star Power 50-gallon hot water heater and insulated sidewall, vapor barrier, attic and exterior basement walls.
Edgewood Vistas is in Walworth County and served by Lake Geneva School District J1, including Badger High School. The community is minutes from Geneva Lake and its 21-mile Shore Path and offers endless water sports, boat tours and beaches. Other area attractions include Black Point Estate, Riviera Beach and music and picnics in the park. Lake Geneva is known for its championship golf courses, balloon rides, snowshoe hiking, horseback riding tours and aerial adventures. Dozens of restaurants, from 5-star gourmet to lakefront pubs, can also be found.
