Lake Geneva, WI – August 30, 2022– Buyers interested in owning a new home within walking distance of downtown Lake Geneva and Geneva Lake will want to visit Edgewood Vistas, where the decorated Berquist model is open for touring.
“The Berquist model gives new home shoppers a firsthand look at the quality construction and craftmanship they can expect when building a Shodeen home at Edgewood Vistas,” said Jaynelle Then, Sales Director for Shodeen Homes, a family-owned-and-operated builder for over 60 years. “Lake Geneva has long been the playground for Illinois vacationers drawn to its 5,400-acre freshwater lake, 21-mile shore path, beaches and vibrant downtown area. With so much to offer, including lower property and sales taxes, it’s no surprise Illinois residents are choosing to make Wisconsin their permanent residence.”
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.
The two-story Berquist model is located on a corner homesite and features 2,019 square feet of living space with three bedrooms and a loft, 2 ½ baths, wide plank engineered oak flooring throughout the first-floor, study with French doors, gourmet island kitchen open to the two-story great room with fireplace, master bedroom suite with tray ceiling, walk-in closet and private bath, two secondary bedrooms served by a full hall bath, full basement with rough-in plumbing, concrete patio, fully sodded homesite and attached 2 1/2-car garage.
