Feature Outstanding Amenities And Great Location
- (March 6, 2008) - Townhome shoppers have taken note of Belden
Place, the newest low-maintenance community being built by The Dearborn-Buckingham
Group. Conveniently located in north suburban Mundelein close to
shopping and recreation, Belden Place has captivated buyers with
a unique combination of flexible floor plans, a great community
layout and exceptional value. The Astor model is one of four plans
featured at the community and is an excellent example of the easy
living and open layouts that buyers have discovered at this community.
Belden Place is located just off Allanson Road in the southeast
part of Mundelein and spans 17-acres, being planned for 90 luxury
row style townhomes. Pre-construction base prices start in the $270s.
Three decorated and furnished models are scheduled to open in the
"In the short time we have been open, Belden Place has really
struck a positive chord with townhome buyers in the north suburbs
who want spacious and flexible floor plans in a convenient location,"
said Christopher Coleman, president of The Dearborn-Buckingham Group.
"What Belden Place offers buyers is some great choices in how
their home can be configured, so they can customize the layout to
best suit their individual needs. This is unique among townhome
communities, which usually offer just one floor plan configuration
and is one reason Belden Place has been so popular."
As specialists in designing and building intimate townhome communities
in the Chicago suburbs, The Dearborn-Buckingham Group features four
different floor plans at Belden Place, ranging in size from about
1,800 up to 2,000 square feet. Pre-construction base prices start
in the $270s, depending on building location and selected floor
The neighborhood layout of Belden Place begins with an impressive
entrance monument off Allanson Road, with the main boulevard entryway
leading into the community. This thoughtfully designed neighborhood
includes a lake, open green space, preserved natural wetland areas
and select wooded areas.
Each group of townhomes at Belden Place features a classic row-style
design, with exteriors that combine tradition with a contemporary
flair. Design elements such as elegant brick trim, covered front
entryways, decorative columns and arched window openings provide
lots of visual interest.
Inside, the townhomes feature three levels of fully finished living
area, with two to four bedrooms, a convertible loft, 1-1/2 to 3-1/2
baths, den, a combination living and dining room, family room (per
plan) and large kitchen with breakfast area. Additional amenities
include central air conditioning, private balconies, fully finished
lower levels and private rear-loading two-car garages.
Every layout also spotlights an Owner's Suite with walk-in closet
and private full bath (or private access to the hall bath). Options
for an additional bedroom suite with full bath in the lower level,
dual master suites upstairs or a super master suite are available
with select plans.

square feet in size and is an exciting tri-level design with two

Going up a few steps flows into the first floor that features formal
living and dining rooms that are perfect for entertaining. A short

room. The kitchen has a pantry and an optional center island and

and a powder room across from the dining room.
The second floor of the Astor has the laundry room located at the
top of the stairs for convenience, adjacent to the hallway linen
closet. A rear corner loft can be easily converted into a third
bedroom, or used for a variety of purposes, such as a reading area,
second floor family room, studio or home office.
The master suite is located at the front of the home and has a large
sleeping area, a walk-in closet with attic access and a private
entry into the hall bath, which features a dual bowl vanity. A private
full bath for the master suite is an available option.
On the lower level, the Astor has flex space that can be used as
a den or media room, along with a storage area under the stairs.
Optional configurations for the lower level include a bedroom with
wardrobe closet and full bath.
"What buyers really like about the Astor is the privacy this
floor plan offers and the way all three levels of the home can be
used at the same time without interfering with each other,"
Coleman said. "The Astor also gives buyers that have a related
living situation or an older child the option of a private living
area on the lower level complete with a full bath."
