Very few new home communities can still be considered “new” after 19 years. Case in point: Mill Creek in Geneva. Since 1994, Mill Creek has sold and built 94 percent of its 2,356 total home sites spread throughout multiple neighborhoods. Today, home buyers can build a new home in any of the six remaining neighborhoods and enjoy the many benefits of opting to build their new home at the tail end of a property’s development cycle.
“Purchasing a new
construction home in an established community offers so many benefits. First, there
is no waiting for neighbors because they are already living here. Second, Shodeen
Homes has been building in the area for over 50 years and has an excellent
reputation. Last, highly acclaimed schools
have been recently built along with a wide variety of shopping and restaurant
options. In other areas, new home owners are still waiting for these amenities
to be built and made available to them,” said Nathan Amidon, Director of Sales
for Shodeen Homes.
Mill Creek offers 36
collective holes of golf, a pool/clubhouse, on-site schools and retailers,
along with quality-built homes spread across several different neighborhoods. Additionally,
Mill Creek is graced with 900 acres of mature trees, lakes and ponds, scenic
landscaping and lush grasslands.
“Everything from affordable single-family homes to spectacular high-end custom residences can be found blending seamlessly into the natural surroundings,” Amidon added. “There is nothing left to the imagination because you can already see what it’s like to live in Mill Creek. There’s minimal development dust, a frequent occurrence for pioneers in a new home community.”
But beyond the community’s built-in natural attractions, Mill Creek homeowners relish many perks that come with being residents. Among these are two premier golf courses, the Mill Creek Golf Club and Tanna Farms Golf Club; a Village Center offering convenient on-site retailers, such as the Mill Creek Market, dry cleaners and a dentist. Geneva boasts highly ranked schools for children to attend within Geneva Community Unit School District #304. Geneva was also named “Best Place to Raise a Family in 2013” by Bloomberg.
Residents also covet Mill Creek’s preferred location, which is easy to reach and conveniently accessible to popular destinations—from historic downtown Geneva to Randall Road shopping and the nearby Metra train station. The highly regarded Geneva Commons shopping center also boasts a variety of shops, stores and restaurants.
Home shoppers can select from six distinct neighborhoods at Mill Creek currently offering to-be-built new homes or they can opt for a custom built home as well as choose from 18 homes for immediate move-in. These move-in ready homes are located in all six neighborhoods and range in price from $289,015 to $549,990.
“This provides many buyers with greater scheduling flexibility, especially if they need time to sell an existing home,” said Amidon. “I don’t know of any other area builder that provides such a healthy supply of move-in ready homes throughout the year—many builders consider it too risky to construct a home that may not be purchased right away. But our quick move-in homes almost always get claimed fast, so we keep building more. In fact, Shodeen Homes is offering a $10,000 to $20,000 home-specific promotion if the homeowner closes on or before January 31.”
Shodeen’s sales center is located within the heart of Mill Creek. To reach the sales center, set at 0N305 N. Mill Creek Drive and open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., take Randall Road to Fabyan Parkway; head west on Fabyan to Mill Creek Drive; turn North onto Mill Creek Drive and follow the signs north straight to the sales center.
