Fox Run shows off new single-family model
The 1,755-square-foot Portico ranch model by Epcon Communities in Fox Run in Plainfield has a dramatic living room with custom tray ceiling, an abundance of windows looking out into the private courtyard and a cozy fireplace for those blustery winter days
This stand-alone ranch home with a base price of $219,990 has 1,755 square feet of stair-free living space and features two bedrooms, two baths, den and 2½-car attached garage. A 455-square-foot fenced in private courtyard, a covered porch off the master bedroom suite, and architecturally significant ceilings are also on display.
“Our new Portico model is a great representation of the three stand-alone, single-family ranch homes that we recently introduced at Fox Run,” said Jamie Wilcox, developer/builder for Epcon Communities. “No other builder in Illinois offers the lifestyle to be found in our new home. We are the only place for homebuyers to go to if they are looking for a single-family ranch home set in an extensively landscaped, yet maintenance-free environment.”
The Portico’s living room has tray ceilings and a wall of windows that provides views of the home’s private, professionally landscaped courtyard. The model also features a formal dining room with tray ceilings and a three-panel patio door that provides views of and access to the landscaped courtyard.
From the home’s kitchen, the chef of the family can remain part of conversations taking place in the living room or dining room because both of those rooms flow uninterrupted into the kitchen. If friends or family want to watch a meal being prepared, or simply want to chat one-on-one with the chef,, there is a spacious food preparation island that has enough counter space for three or four breakfast bar stools. To ease the preparation of meals, the kitchen is furnished with Merillat cabinetry, a food pantry and high-quality GE appliances (gas range, dishwasher and garbage disposal).
This home also includes a spacious master bedroom suite with recessed tray ceiling and windows topped by a transom window. The suite has access to a walk-in closet and a private bathroom furnished with a linen closet, an oversized dual-bowl bath vanity with cultured marble top, and an oversized shower with built-in bench.
The interior of this and every other home in Fox Run features ceramic flooring, full-size laundry room, central air conditioning, energy-efficient gas forced-air heating, and quick-recovery 50-gallon water heater. All rooms are pre-wired for cable television and telephones.
Currently, three unique floor plans are offered within Fox Run. Epcon’s free-standing series of 1,516- to 2,873-square-foot ranch homes with private courtyards do not share a common wall with any neighbors, and are base priced from $204,990 to $229,990.
In addition to the single-family stand-alone homes, Epcon also offers ranch villa homes. These homes are set in a building that consists of four ranch homes arranged in a pinwheel format. Instead of being laid out four in a row, like those found in a typical townhome community, Epcon’s privacy-sensitive attached ranch homes are arranged around a central pivot point; thus a homeowner only shares one common wall with its neighbors. With this arrangement each attached ranch home lives like an “end unit.” The result is a building that, when viewed from any perspective, looks like a high-end, large square-footage, custom single-family home. All materials found on the building’s exterior have been selected to create a high-quality appearance yet minimize future maintenance.
At this time Epcon Communities, has a variety of attached ranch homes for sale. Villa ranch homes provide 1,137 to 1,886 square feet of living space and are priced from $179,990 to $219,990.
Purchasing a single-family or attached villa ranch home at Fox Run also gives homebuyers use of the community’s 3,000 square-foot clubhouse and heated swimming pool. Within the clubhouse residents will find a professionally decorated social room (with fireplace, big-screen TV and pool table), kitchen, fitness center, shower-equipped restroom facilities and a meeting room.
Fox Run is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.. It is located off Route 59 and Dayfield Drive, one mile south of Renwick Road and one mile north of Caton Farm Road. For more information, call (815) 609-0150, or visit www.EpconCommunities.com.
