Shodeen Homes Announces Grand Reopening at Reston Ponds of Sycamore

Friday, July 26, 2013 / New Homes

Shodeen Homes has announced its grand reopening at Reston Ponds in Sycamore and will continue to build and market new homes throughout the entire Reston Ponds community. The firm has retooled their plans and has introduced a newly-designed ranch home which is under construction and scheduled to be completed in November.


“We are excited to be back building in Sycamore and will be opening our model/sales office in August in conjunction with our reopening at the community,” said Nathan Amidon, Sales Manager of Shodeen Homes. “Based on our significant sales at our Mill Creek community in Geneva we have great confidence in the Sycamore market now that the housing market is heating up.”


Blocks from Sycamore’s thriving downtown district, Reston Ponds is nestled in a quiet, charming and conveniently accessible location that buyers will appreciate, Amidon added. “We will be offering some outstanding values when we open the community for sales.”


Reston Ponds itself “is situated in a tucked-away, 193-acre site that is far removed from the hustle and bustle, yet it’s within walking distance or a short drive of favorite destinations like area shops, restaurants, parks and churches,” Amidon said. “It’s a lovely property, complete with six manicured ponds and acres of land donated for use as future park space.”


In addition, homeowners can send their children to acclaimed schools within highly rated Sycamore Community School District 427. “In fact, your kids can walk right next door to Southeast Elementary, to which we’ve built a nice walking path,” he said.


 “Our base prices start from $228,900, and our homesites span from 9,000 to 21,000 square feet. Plus, each home includes a wealth of amenities,” Amidon said.


In all, buyers can select from two ranch and five two-story single-family home styles that offer three to four bedrooms, two to two-and-a-half baths, two- to three-car garage, family room, and approximately 1,600 to 2,776 square feet of living space. Base prices range from $228,900 to $312,524 (all prices subject to change without notice).


Among the standard features built into every residence are a full basement; vaulted ceilings; a 92 percent efficient furnace; central air conditioning; white colonist doors and trim; microwave, range, dishwasher and garbage disposal unit in the kitchen; fully sodded homesite with shrub package, and more. All two-story homes boast formal living and dining rooms. Several homesites offer scenic pond views. Reston Ponds homeowners also pay no SSA tax.


The Dodson, is a ranch home under construction at Reston Ponds with three bedrooms, two full baths, two-car garage and 1,600 square feet, showcasing an open floor plan with great visibility between the island/breakfast bar kitchen and the dining room and great room.


Shoppers can also tour a furnished model at Reston Ponds, which demonstrates the added value crafted into every Shodeen home:  The ranch model features three bedrooms, two full baths, two-car garage, great room with cathedral ceiling, formal dining room, oversized kitchen with island, pantry and nook, master bedroom equipped with an ample walk-in closet, and 2,094 square feet.


“This community has so much to offer,” said Amidon. “Sycamore is a city with a culturally rich, 144-year history. It has a close-knit, family-friendly, small-town feel, but it also offers all the perks of a bigger city, especially considering its close proximity to DeKalb and the I-88 corridor.”


Incorporated in 1858, Sycamore is the county seat for DeKalb County. Sycamore is well-known for its County Courthouse building, popular downtown business district, and numerous historic residences—particularly older homes sporting Victorian architecture—that line the streets.


“People come from near and far to attend several of Sycamore’s annual events, including the renowned Pumpkin Festival—first inaugurated in 1956—concerts in the park, the Turning Back Time car show, Moonlight Madness with live window displays downtown, Winter Chocolate Walk, Discover Sycamore Block Party, and other holiday happenings and cultural outings,” Amidon added.


Reston Ponds residents will appreciate the community’s preferred location accessible to a variety of nearby attractions including:  the Sycamore Sports Complex, Kishwaukee Family YMCA, The Sycamore Golf Club featuring an 18-hole public golf course, the Sycamore Public Library, the bicycle-friendly Great Western Nature Trail, Northern Illinois University, several churches, and Shabbona Lake State Park. What’s more, Reston Ponds is minutes away from big box retailers like Wal-Mart, Target, Jewel, JC Penny, Carsons, and Walgreen’s; Hy-Vee Foods and restaurants such as P.J’s Courthouse Tavern, Nat’s on Maple, Taxco, Sweet Dream Desserts and Ruby Tuesdays. It’s also approximately five miles from I-88 and 30 minutes or less from St. Charles, Geneva, Rockford and Elgin.
