Free Smart Car offered for buyers at Buckingham Orchard

A free Smart Car. For a limited time buyers who purchase a qualifying town-home at Buckingham Orchard in Lombard will receive a brand new, gas-saving Smart Car, one of the most talked about new cars in recent memory.

Designed and built by The Dearborn Buckingham Group, Buckingham Orchard is a luxury, low-maintenance townhome enclave located in west suburban Lombard. This intimate neighborhood combines a great location, spacious and well equipped townhomes and outstanding value, made even better by the addition of a free Smart Car. Buckingham Orchard is located just off Route 53 and south of North Avenue in Lombard and features 34 luxury townhomes, with a decorated and furnished model open for tours. Six different floor plans are available across two series that start in the $310,000s.

Smart buyers see that Buckingham Orchard's closer location is a smart choice, just ten minutes to Schaumburg and Oak Brook and a quick five minutes commute to the Metra station in downtown Lombard. We realized smart buyers making the smart choice deserve a Smart Car and what better a car than the thrifty and maneuverable smart," said Christopher Coleman, president of The Dearborn Buckingham Group.

The Smart Car promotion is valid for a limited time on the three completed inventory townhomes currently available at Buckingham Orchard. Buyers will receive their Smart Car upon closing or first availability thereafter. THe Smart Car is provided by Knauz smart center in Lake Bluff. Complete details on the promotion are available from Buckingham Orchard sales center, including pricing and availability of the qualifying inventory homes.

This much talked about car is thrifty on fuel and fun to drive and is sure to be a big hit for the homeowners at Buckingham Orchard that receive the vehicle. The 2008 smart for two coupe comes packed with standard safety features that are more likely to be found in luxury vehicles. These include the protective tridion safety cell developed especially for the smart to help ensure crash compatibility with larger passenger cars, electronic stability program, anti-lock braking system (abs) and four airbags just to name a few.

The inclusions at Buckingham Orchard are impressive too. Two series of homes, including the new Americana Series, which features three floor plans, each feature a two to three bedroom layout with 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 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.

With our close-in location, they won't have one and any driving they have to do will be accomplished in a fun, gas-saving and unique way with their new Smart Car. What better way to drive to the train station and save money every month!" said Coleman.
