Chicago-based Lexington Homes, which is developing five townhome and single-family rowhome communities throughout Chicagoland, has announced the start of sales at Lexington Village at Avondale, a new maintenance-free community of 22 single-family rowhomes with fenced-in yards and private, detached two-car garages in the burgeoning Avondale neighborhood on Chicago’s Northwest Side.
Located at the corner of Karlov and Belmont avenues, Lexington Village offers two newly created floor plans that are a hybrid of Lexington’s rowhome and single-family home designs. This creative design results in an attached home that lives more like a single-family home, with three levels of living space, a private fenced-in backyard and detached two-car garage on a newly built alley. Units will be available with three or four bedrooms and measure approximately 2,300 to 2,450 square feet; an optional rooftop deck can provide additional outdoor space.
“Because the space and layout of these plans more closely resemble a single-family home, we’re seeing strong interest from buyers in their mid-30s who are on their second home purchase,” said Jeff Benach, principal of Lexington Homes. “They understand the tremendous value at Lexington Village, as a similar new-construction, single-family home in Avondale easily can cost more than $650,000.”
Right now, the first building at Lexington Village is under construction. Buyers at Lexington Village at Avondale can choose from numerous luxury finishes and options to customize their home, such as traditional or contemporary fireplaces in the great room and ceiling treatments in the master bedroom and secondary bedrooms. Homes come standard with 9-foot ceilings on all three floors, hardwood flooring on the first floor, carpeting on the second and third floors, and ceramic tile in the bathrooms.
The Avondale neighborhood, ranked as one of the nation’s 10 hottest, need-to-visit neighborhoods by travel website Lonely Planet, is adjacent to the popular Roscoe Village and Logan Square neighborhoods. Lexington Village at Avondale is in proximity to fitness clubs, grocery stores, coffee shops and restaurants, while abundant retail options, such as boutiques, antique shops and furniture stores, line nearby Milwaukee Avenue, which is also a main bike artery to downtown. The location provides convenient access to downtown Chicago via two nearby CTA Blue Line stations and Interstate 90/94.
