Lexington Park offers incentives on spring-delivery homes

Chicago Tribune

Chicago-based Lexington Homes is offering incentives on all spring-delivery homes at Lexington Park, a development of 120 town homes in northwest suburban Des Plaines.

The package includes three appliances — a stainless steel refrigerator, a white washer and a dryer — and up to $2,500 in closing costs paid on all homes purchased for spring 2011 delivery.

Lexington Park offers incentives on spring-delivery homesWithin walking distance of downtown Des Plaines and a Metra station, Lexington Park offers three floor plans ranging from 1,605 to 1,913 square feet. Base-priced from $239,990 to $259,990, the three-story homes come standard with two to three bedrooms, 21/2 baths and attached two-car garages. Options allow for additional bedrooms and powder rooms. Three models are available to tour.

"Appliances are big-ticket items you have to buy with a new home, so we wanted to help buyers reduce this expense with this special incentive package, said Jeff Benach, co-principal of Lexington Homes. "We also realize it can be tough for some buyers to cover all the closing costs."
Lexington Homes recently broke ground on two new buildings at Lexington Park with deliveries anticipated for April, and these are the homes the incentive package targets.

One of the floor plans available at Lexington Park is the 1,605-square-foot Bristol. Priced from $239,990, the home includes two bedrooms and 21/2 baths. "This home is a phenomenal deal for entry-level buyers looking for a stylish new home at a great value," said Benach.

Another floor plan is the Warrington. The 1,758-square-foot home includes two or three bedrooms, 21/2 baths and arched entryways, a kitchen pass-through with breakfast bar and a den off the kitchen. The home is base-priced from $249,990. The option for a third bedroom is available with this plan.

"This plan offers some unusual features for a town home, namely the den located on the main level right next to the kitchen," said Benach. "This extra room is perfect as a playroom near the main kitchen hub area for families with young children, or it also makes an ideal home office."

The third floor plan is the 1,913-square-foot Coventry. Priced from $259,990, it includes three bedrooms and 21/2 baths. "This home lives more like a single-family home, with a flexible lower-level space that would make a great home theater, to the inviting kitchen with island and tons of storage, to the upper level with three bedrooms," said Benach.

All homes at Lexington Park include brushed nickel lighting fixtures, private balconies, 42-inch maple cabinets and stainless-steel appliances in the kitchen, and a dual-bowl raised-height vanity.

Sales center hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. For more information, call 847-299-0500 or visit lexingtonchicago.com.
