Focus Development has improved the inclusions and lowered the prices on four unique, ultra-luxury condominiums now available in the fully restored historic courthouse building on Wheaton's Courthouse Square.
"At a time when builders are lowering their specifications in order to reduce their prices, shoppers can now save up to 36 percent on the final courthouse building units available and enjoy a wealth of upgraded amenities at no extra cost", said Tim Anderson, president of Focus Development.
"We've not only priced these condominiums more attractively, but we've completely redesigned their kitchens and bathrooms and outfitted each residence with exquisite finishes and extras that were not originally standard appointments. These include Wolf, Sub-Zero and Bosch appliances and custom cabinetry in the gourmet kitchens, upgraded hardwood flooring, additional crown molding and much more," he said.
What's more, homeowners appreciate being part of a master-planned, mixed use community that also includes mid-rise condos, upscale townhomes and expansive grounds that have been extensively landscaped.
"Plus, they get bragging rights on a piece of history", said Anderson, who noted that the four homes are located within the famous 114-year-old DuPage County Courthouse clocktower building, which has earned landmark status. The structure was painstakingly refurbished over the last four years to convert its interior for residential use and lovingly restore its inimitable exterior.
"There are many intricate materials and elements inherent to the courthouse that required careful replication by specialized fabricators, including custom-made terra cotta and porcelain tile and sandstone imported from Europe," Anderson said.
Focus Development will be holding open house events at Courthouse Square on Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m. through October 16. To reach the community, take I-88 west to I-355 north and exit at Roosevelt Road west; head to Naperville Road and turn right; proceed to Willow Road and turn left; head to Reber Street and turn right; and proceed one block to the historic courthouse on your right, located at 201 Reber St. in Wheaton.
