Custom Fully-Improved Homesites:


BARTLETT—Custom home shoppers looking for a sprawling homesite starting from the $190,000-range must come see the best kept secret in southwest suburban Bartlett. 

“Nestled in a wooded cul-de-sac neighborhood where time stands still in the quaint Village of Bartlett,” said Kathy Dames-Mattox, vice president of Kipling Homes and a top selling Realtor in Will County at ReMax Realty of Joliet.

The Enclave is a new community of 17 impressively large custom fully-improved single-family homesites in a quaint and private setting.

Named for is tucked away location and wooded entranceway, The Enclave is being developed by Kipling. The homesites range in lot square footage from 11,200 to 33,377 feet.

 The custom-home neighborhood has a 1-acre-plus open space near its entrance and scenic boulevard streets.

The quiet setting with tree-lined streets and heavily landscaped open space makes The Enclave an ideal choice for buyers who are building their own custom home or one of several custom home builders spec homes.

Homesites range in size of 11,000 to 33,000 square feet, with an expansive average lot size of 14,355 square feet. Look-out and walkout homesites are available.

 Some of the homesites have been retained by custom builders who are building for clients or anticipating a decorated model, she said. Individuals may purchase a custom site to build their dream home at a later date.

                “Most people come here to buy a homesite as their first priority,” said Dames-Mattox. “Then they go to a custom plan book and architect to design their dream home, fitting the homesite they have chosen. Everyone may choose their own contractor or retain the homesite for the future building or resale.”

                Most of our buyers are professional couples in their mid  40s with families who want a bigger house and better schools for their growing children, she said.

They want to build a home in a custom-home community. These buyers have owned semi-custom homes, and now know what they really want, in a luxury home,” she said.

These larger homesites easily accommodate today’s popular 3 or 4 car garage style homes plans and sprawling ranch homes.

To maintain a distinguished street scape and home values, The Enclave calls for a higher standard of home to be built with strict covenants and restrictions.

All home plans must be pre-approved for covenants and architectural elements by a 2-step experienced association process prior to building to insure continuity and protect the value in the community. 

The Enclave will maintain a lavish landscaped look because the exterior terrain for each home also is governed by landscaping requirements, dictating a minimum landscaping investment.

                “Kipling” has provided community development designs for such outstanding communities as Lake Forrest's multi-million dollar homes and Del Webb's Shorewood Glen, as well as for industry giants including Centex, Richmond America, William Ryan Homes and more.

                The Village of Bartlett is just 31 miles west of the Loop and overlaps into Cook, DuPage and Kane Counties.

 “Bartlett provides an ideal place to raise a family with spacious custom homesites and excellent schools,” said Dames-Mattox.

“Good schools, city sewer and water and larger custom homesites in a well planned community sets The Enclave apart from other custom developments in surrounding towns,” she said.

                The Bartlett Chamber of Commerce and the Barlett Park District combine efforts every year to bring festivals and fairs to the community.

                The village is committed to revitalizing its downtown in order to offer its residents and visitors a unique variety of shopping and dining experiences. For the past few years the the revitalization of the downtown has been significant with an increase in residential development, retail and dining uses as well as a new Metra commuter station, park and streetscape.

                The Prairie-style station opened in December f 2007 and provides area commuters with a comfortable place to wait for their trains and an upscale coffee shop.

                The Village of Bartlett is easily accessible to U.S. 20 which feeds into the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290) and I-59 connects with Northwest Tollway (I-90) and the East-West Tollway (I-88). Driving to the Loop takes an hour.

                To visit The Enclave, take I-59 to Army trail Road, head East to Gerber Road, north onto Gerber Road to the community.       For more information about The Encalve, call  the KATHY DAMES TEAM from REMAX JOLIET at  (815) 741-5082  or  (815) 693-8336 .  Or you can visit out website at and click on “Enclave”.
