New Americana Serier Offered at Buckingham Orchard

The Dearborn Buckingham Group has announced the debut of its new Americana Series townhomes at Buckingham Orchard, its luxury townhome community in west suburban Lombard.

This new series of three floor plans features flexible layouts and value pricing starting in the $290,000s. Buckingham Orchard is just off Route 53 and south of North Avenue in Lombard. The neighborhood features 34 luxury townhomes, with a decorated and furnished model open for tours.

"We get lots of visitors who are looking for the very best value and the best use of space in a townhome floorplan. Many townhomes have wasted space or rooms designed for the way people used to live. Today's buyers want the best of design and functionality and that's why we created the new Americana Seriers," said Christopher Coleman, president of The Dearborn Buckingham Group.

"We have launched these new floor plans to give people the features that fit the way they live today and the flexibility to adapt to their needs in the future as well."

Buckingham Orchard is a secluded enclave of 34 luxury two-story townhomes in a location that is minutes from downtown Lombard. Buyers have been captivated by the smaller, more intimate setting of this community, which is bordered by mature trees.

The new Americana Series at Buckingham Orchard consists of three floor plans, each a two to three bedroom layout with 1.5 to 2.5 baths, full basement and a two-car garage. Every home also features a master bedroom with walk-in closet and a private full bath or private access to the hall bath. An exclusive tech center flex space on the second floor provides in-home office or computer room configurability.

The floor plans include the Dearborn, the Dearborn II and the Dearborn III, each sized at 1,450 square feet. Special introductory prices are being offered, starting at $299,990 up to $313,990. This pricing is for a limited time, with complete information available at the sales center.

Highlights of the Dearborn plan include a stylish corner entry foyer that opens to the angled stairway on one side and leads into the great room. The oversized great room features large windows for plenty of natural light and is open to the eat-in kitchen. The first floor also includes a powder room and laundry room with access to the two-car garage. This home also has a full basement.

On the second floor, the Dearborn features a loft at the top of the stairs (configurable to a third bedroom), a tech center flex space that makes for the perfect office or computer room and two bedrooms. The master suite has a walk-in closet and private access to the hall bath.

The Dearborn II adds a second full bath upstairs, giving the master suite its own private bath. The Dearborn III offers a luxury master bath with dual-bowl vanities, soaking tub and walk-in shower along with an oversized walk-in closet.

"We're very excited about the Americana Series plans and what they represent to today's townhome buyer. The reaction of our visitors and buyers has been great, with many people being impressed by the flexibility to use a space like the loft or tech area as they see fit and not as a room with a pre-designated purpose," Coleman said.

Along with their flexibility, each Americana Seriers townhome at Buckingham Orchard includes features such as 9-foot first-floor ceilings, white painted colonial panel doors and trim, light fixtures in either brushed nickel or brass along with quality Shaw wall-to-wall carpeting. A full basement with 8-foot walls is also included.

The kitchens highlight Aristocraft wood cabinetry and a complete GE appliance package that includes a self-cleaning gas oven and range, a built-in multicycle dishwasher and sink disposer.

The baths include custom designed wood vanities, full width vanity mirrors, plumbing fixtures by Kohler and ceramic wall tile in the shower area with shampoo niche.

Buyers can also select from a range of options for their Americana Series home that can include a cedar deck, oak stair rails, hardwood or ceramic tile flooring, whole-house audio systems with iPod docks, granite or quartz kitchen countertops and more.

The exterior of each Americana Series townhome features custom architectural detailing with brick trim and covered front entryways accented by professionally designed landscaping for an attractive and upscale streetscape.

Buckingham Orchard also features a location just 10 minutes from shopping at Oak Brook Center and at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg. Downtown Lombard is about five minutes from the community. Children attend Glen Ellyn schools.

Buckingham Orchard is in Lombard, near Route 53 and North Avenue. To visit, take Interstate 355 to North Avenue east to Route 53 south approximately a half mile to Pleasant Lane, and is open from noon to 5 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, or by appointment. Call 630-261-9404 for details.
