Villas at Fox Run, the most luxurious maintenance-free ranch-style home community in Plainfield, has quickly sold out its Phase Two homes during the past eight months and is now introducing Phase Three.

Sales are so strong that four homes have already been pre-sold in a community that is attractive to busy professionals, empty-nesters and retirees who don’t have time to cut grass, trim the bushes, wash windows, or shovel snow in the winter.

With Phase Three, Epcon Communities is making available to prospective homebuyers 15 new Courtyard Series stand-alone single-family homes and 12 Cathedral Series villa homes. Pricing starts at just $199,990.

Epcon offers two distinct housing styles at Villas at Fox Run. The first style of home, called the Cathedral Series, is set in a building that consists of four ranch homes arranged in a pinwheel format. In this arrangement, a homeowner only shares one common wall with its neighbors and each attached ranch home lives like an “end unit.”

The Cathedral Series consists of two floor plans called the Abbey and Canterbury. The Abbey, at 1,718 square feet, has two master bedroom suites, two full bathrooms, and an attached two-car garage. The Canterbury, slightly larger at 1,816 square feet, offers two bedrooms plus a den, two bathrooms and a two-car attached garage. Both plans have stunning cathedral ceilings as well as four-season rooms with wall-to-wall windows. While a three-season room is typically standard, Epcon Communities is offering it as a four-season room at no additional cost for a limited time.

The second style of homes offered at Villas at Fox Run is the Courtyard Series, also known as stand-alone ranch homes. These single-family homes allow the homebuyer to live the maintenance-free lifestyle typically found in condominium or townhome communities, but with the additional benefit of not sharing a wall, floor or ceiling with anyone else. Homebuyers have three stand-alone single-family courtyard homes to consider purchasing.

The smaller of the floor plans is the Palazzo, base-priced at $219,990. Ranging from 1,516 to 2,012 square feet, the Palazzo features two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a 2½-car garage. The high tray ceilings, optional fireplace and large kitchen are just a few of the finishing touches that make the Palazzo so unique. Additionally, the expansive private courtyard allows homeowners to enjoy the outdoors while still maintaining their privacy.

One of the most value-driven floor plans is the Portico, a 1,754- to 2,461-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bath home with a den and 2½-car attached garage. This home is priced from $234,990 and comes with a 455-square-foot private courtyard and architecturally significant tray ceilings in the living room, dining room and master bedroom suite.

People looking for a larger stand-alone courtyard ranch home have the opportunity to purchase the 1,994- to 2,873-square-foot Promenade. This floor plan features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a den, an open dining and living area, a large entertaining kitchen and a 485-square-foot private courtyard. It is often completed with a variety of upgrades such as hardwood flooring, staggered height kitchen cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and granite counter tops. Even with all of these amenities, the Promenade is priced from $249,990.

The Villas at Fox Run also offers a 3,100-square-foot clubhouse and heated swimming pool. The clubhouse offers a decorated social room (with fireplace, flat-screen TV and pool table), equipped kitchen, fitness center, shower-equipped restroom facilities and a meeting room.

Villas at Fox Run is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. The community is off Route 59 and Dayfield Drive, one mile south of Renwick Road and one mile north of Caton Farm Road. Call (815) 609-0150 or visit
