Residents Living At This Luxury Low Maintenance Enclave Can Have Short Commutes And Easy Access To Many Employers

Lombard, IL - (July 7, 2008) - There are a lot of great reasons to purchase a new luxury townhome at Buckingham Orchard in west suburban Lombard, but one reason may surprise buyers: this community is located within seven miles of an estimated 600,000 jobs. Designed and built by The Dearborn-Buckingham Group, Buckingham Orchard is a beautiful low-maintenance townhome enclave that can mean short commutes to excellent jobs. This exclusive neighborhood combines its great location with spacious and nicely appointed townhomes that represent an outstanding value. Buckingham Orchard is located just off Route 53 and south of North Avenue in Lombard, with just 34 luxury townhomes making up the community. There are six different floor plans available across two exciting series, with prices starting under $300,000. A decorated and furnished model is open for tours during regular sales center hours.

"Buckingham Orchard has been popular with townhome buyers for a multitude of reasons, but many shoppers may not have realized how well positioned this community is to take advantage of a quick and economical commute to work. It's location, location, location all over again, but with a 21st century twist," said Christopher Coleman, president of The Dearborn-Buckingham Group. "According to the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP), within a seven mile radius of Buckingham Orchard's location, there are currently about 600,000 jobs. This means a great likelihood of a buyer at this community working within this seven mile radius and being able to enjoy the benefits of a quick and economical commute, especially with gas prices well over $4 a gallon these days."

Not only is Buckingham Orchard strategically located to take advantage of this great number of jobs, CMAP also forecasts the creation of an additional 145,000 jobs by 2030 in the 23 suburbs around and close to Lombard. According to CMAP statistics, Schaumburg alone, which is just 10 minutes from Buckingham Orchard, currently boasts over 87,000 jobs, with an increase of nearly 25,000 slated over the next 20 years.

So while buyers begin to check Google™ Maps for employer locations in and around Lombard, they can also think about the two exciting series of homes that are offered at Buckingham Orchard.

The new Americana Series features three floor plans, each being a two to three bedroom layout with 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 baths, full basement and a two-car attached garage.

Every Americana 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 of each Americana plan provides the ultimate in home office or computer room configurability, perfect for those days of telecommuting to reduce the carbon footprint.

Americana floor plans include the Dearborn, the Dearborn II and the Dearborn III, each sized at 1,500 square feet. These plans are priced from the $290s.

Buckingham Orchard also showcases the Orchard Series, two-story townhomes available in three different layouts. The Birch model measures 1,660 square feet; the Ash model is a 1,750 square foot home and the Cedar is 1,690 square feet and shows off a first floor master suite. Both standard and end-unit configurations are available. Prices for the Orchard Series begin in the $340s, depending on building location and floor plan size.

Whether it's for work or for retail therapy, the location of Buckingham Orchard can't be beat. World class shopping at Oak Brook Center and at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg is just 10 minutes away. The beauty of historic downtown Lombard is within walking or biking distance from the community. Buyers with school-aged children have also been pleased with the quality Glen Ellyn schools that serve the neighborhood.

"Buckingham Orchard is an in-fill community, meaning we are a small, intimate neighborhood being built in a well established and respected close-in suburb. Buyers don't have to venture out to a cornfield to find affordability, when Buckingham Orchard is so conveniently located and value priced," said Coleman.
The Dearborn-Buckingham Group has also taken care to equip every townhome at Buckingham Orchard with a long list of included features, some of which buyers are not accustomed to seeing in a townhome design.

Each home features an 8' deep full basement (with some homes even including a daylight or lookout basement), premium Kohler plumbing fixtures and a full sized two-car attached garage. Buyers can even choose from finished basement packages to add even more living space to their new townhome at a very affordable price.

The townhomes at Buckingham Orchard boast high quality appointments like classic white painted Colonial panel doors and trim, designer selected light fixtures in either brushed nickel or brass along with quality Shaw wall-to-wall carpeting.

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

The baths have custom designed wood vanities, full width vanity mirrors and plumbing fixtures by Kohler.
Buyers can also select from a wide range of options for their Buckingham Orchard townhome 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 much more.
