The Villas of Cambridge will include 120 total townhomes when complete, including 59 Arbor Series homes and 61 Artisan Series homes. All homes feature maintenance free exterior maintenance, landscaping, lawn care and snow removal.
Located off Route 20 (Lake Street), just west of Route 59, the Villas of Cambridge features more than 18 acres of open space including over seven acres of heavily wooded forest preserve and a centrally located landscaped park site with a gazebo and pond.
The Arbor Series consists of three townhome plans ranging from 1,777 to 2,047 square feet with two bedrooms, two to 2.5 baths and two-car garages. All designs offer a range of flexible space options such as extra baths, bedrooms, and lofts. Two plans are available with dual master bedroom suites. Prices start in the $210s.
"With the recent grand opening of the Arbor series models, visitors to the Villas of Cambridge can now tour professionally appointed model homes of every plan in the community," said Paul F. Ivers, president of Cambridge Homes.
The Arbor Series are being built in buildings of four to five homes. Two of the Arbor series plans are:
- The Willow: This 1,777-square-foot tri-level design features two bedrooms with a loft, 2.5 baths, and a two-car garage. The lower level features a family room, but is available with an optional third full bath and fourth bedroom in lieu of the family room. The main level features a foyer, living room with bay window and available three-sided fireplace, dining room, spacious kitchen with pantry and breakfast area with sliding glass door to a wood deck, and powder room.
- The Pine: This 1,891-square-foot raised ranch includes a finished lower level and will be built as an end home. It features two bedrooms, two baths and a two-car garage.
