Combine state-of-the-art single-family home designs with a country setting near Deep Lake, and you’ll love the lifestyle at William Ryan Homes’ Lake Vista.

The newly opened Lake Villa community will include just 29 distinctive homes with a collection of 11 floor plan choices, including two one-level ranch designs. Prices start at $260,900 for homes ranging from 1,941 to 3,192 square feet with three to five bedrooms, two to 3½ baths, two- to three-car garages and full basements, including optional look-out and walk-out varieties. Large homesites of more than one-third acre add to the possibilities for family fun.

“If your family enjoys water sports, fishing and outdoor recreation, Lake Vista offers a great location across the road from Deep Lake and the Sun Prairie Forest Preserve,” said Debbie Beaver, vice president of operations for William Ryan Homes. “In addition, our homes offer architecturally exciting yet practical floor plans, complete with the state-of-the-art features that are important to home buyers today.”

“We have just introduced our ‘Connected Home,’ an added value worth $1,800 included free of charge to our buyers. Through our partnership with Digital Innovations, homes will be wired for phone and data collection, a four-port wireless router, television and telephone distribution modules, and home control processor, accessible from mobile devices. Homes will be constructed with the most essential wiring components and buyers will be able to purchase energy, lighting, security and entertainment modules,” she said.

Professional guidance is provided, and more information is available at the sales offices.

Among the floor plans offered at Lake Vista is one of two hard-to-find ranch plans, the Cayenne. With three bedrooms and a study, two full baths, full basement and two-car attached garage, the Cayenne features approximately 1,941 square feet of convenient one-level living, priced from $266,990.

Highlights of the Cayenne are a great room large enough both for dining and gathering in the living room, kitchen with island, pantry and breakfast area, master suite with large walk-in closet, compartmented bath and available tray ceiling, two other bedrooms located down a private hall and served by a bath, plus study off the main living area.

For those who prefer a spacious two-story plan, the Jovan II, Lake Vista’s furnished model, provides an exciting example. The Jovan II is an expansive 2,867-square-foot home with four or five bedrooms, first-floor study, 2½ baths, second-floor laundry and main-floor mud room, full basement and two-car or optional three-car garage, base-priced from $282,990.

Highlights of the Jovan II include a formal living room and dining room flanking the two-story foyer, a family-sized informal living area with kitchen with walk-in pantry, breakfast area and family room, secluded study, powder room plus mud room and garage access.

Upstairs, the master bedroom includes a room-sized closet and deluxe master bath plus tray ceiling. Also featured are three other bedrooms served by a hall bath and the laundry room.

Included are granite countertops in kitchens and baths, hardwood flooring in some areas, 9-foot first-floor ceilings and charming Roman arched doors. William Ryan also makes modifications to customize homes for buyers.

“In addition, we offer a lengthy list of custom options including our signature morning room, additional bedrooms and baths or room extensions per plan, fireplaces, volume ceilings, and finished basements, to name a few,” Beaver said.

William Ryan Homes are Green-built to exceed Energy Star guidelines, include a 1-2-10 Transferable Warranty, and they feature a special waterproofing process that guarantees dry basements for 10 years. In response to market conditions, guarantee-buy and long-term leasing programs enable buyers to purchase a home while removing concerns about selling their existing homes. The “‘My Home 24-7” personal customer website enables buyers to make on-line selections, view real-time building schedules and direct warranty request schedules.

Those who enjoy outdoor activities will delight in the location of Lake Vista.
