Airhart Construction Selling New Homes at Four Distinctive Communities

Make way for the 21st century home buyer. Today’s home buyer is not necessarily looking for the big house and sprawling back yard. Instead, they’re seeking a comfortable home, maybe a white picket fence, upkeep independence and an ideal address that suits their very specific needs; a “right-sized” home which doesn’t skimp on luxury. And they’re finding it - at four very different Airhart Construction communities all located within a three-mile radius of each other.

Wheaton, IL, February 13, 2013 --( In planning their current new home neighborhoods, the team at Airhart Construction has been careful to focus on the active lifestyles of the many market segments whose focus is beyond their own backyard. They cater to this demand by locating these properties with outdoor amenities nearby such as the Illinois Prairie Path, neighborhood parks and a golf course. Airhart is providing a variety of home designs and amenities that appeal to this wide variety of prospective homeowners who share a single commonality: an active, engaged lifestyle.

“This has meant building communities that offer this freedom and also flexibility to buyers who want a spatially efficient home with maintenance-free living,” Christy Whelan, Director of Sales said.

Shoppers desiring a close proximity to a charming downtown area close to the action have been gravitating toward Courthouse Square - a community of 46 Georgian-style luxury rowhomes on the site of the historic DuPage County Courthouse campus in Wheaton.

“Courthouse Square residents can walk to the Metra station, reap all the benefits of the nearby downtown Wheaton with its restaurants and shops and also enjoy maintenance-free living,” said Whelan. “They may have a second home elsewhere and like the fact that they can pick up and go whenever they want.”

House hunters seeking for a hassle-free home in a convenient location, along with having their yard work taken care of for them, will want to visit College Station in Wheaton, Airhart Construction’s newest single-family community of only 14 homes. College Station’s cottage style homes are rear-loaded, with a two-car garage, resulting in a more efficiently spaced design and an attractive, charming front exterior.

“These residents are close to all the action without being in the center of it all. They receive a custom home with a convenient address that also provides privacy,” Whelan said. “This buyer leads an active lifestyle but not necessarily at their house. They may have children that are active in off-site event-oriented sports and have no need for a large backyard that they are never home to use.”

“Mackenzie Place buyers want a high-quality home on a well-landscaped property and may prefer a first-floor master suite,” she noted. “They don’t want to move away from friends or family, and they’ve owned a few homes previously. As a result, they know exactly what they want, which is generous amenities. They don’t need abundant square footage any longer, and low-maintenance in a close-knit community is high on their list.”

Lastly, for those wanting the roominess and privacy a detached home provides, yet the carefree advantages of a low-maintenance attached home, consider Fisher Farm, Airhart’s community of 71 semi-custom single-family homes in Winfield.

“I describe Fisher Farm homes as ‘scaled-down spaces for live-it-up lifestyles.’ Many of these buyers aren’t looking for huge residences overflowing with excessive square footage that won’t be used and that cost a lot of money to heat, cool and maintain,” said Whelan. "These are people that do not want an attached townhome or condo."
